Amazon’s Fire tablets are great couch devices or gadgets to give your kids if you don’t want them messing around with your more expensive tech. They’re usually pretty affordable, but Amazon Prime Day is an opportunity to snag one of Amazon’s tablets at rock-bottom prices. Both the Fire HD 10 and Fire HD 8 tablets are half the price, down to $75 and $45 respectively, while the 2019 Fire 7 tablet is just $30 for Prime Day. All of the Kids Pro versions of the records are also on sale, so you can pick one up for as little as $50.

Get the best bang for your buck when you go with the Fire HD 10. It’s Amazon’s most powerful tablet, running on a 2.0GHz oct-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and at least 32GB of storage. It features a 10.1-inch 1080p display, Dolby Atmos support, and a USB-C port for charging. Amazon estimates you’ll get up to 12 hours of battery life on a single charge, and it takes around four hours to top up the device from scratch. The Fire HD 10 also supports Show mode, which essentially lets you turn the thing into a makeshift Echo Show smart display. If you have a stand or case that supports the tablet, you can use it in Show mode to display information like the weather, calendar events, news, and more.
But the best sub-$50 option this Prime Day is the Fire HD 8. We gave the tablet a score of 81 for its refined design, decent performance, hands-free Alexa capabilities, and good battery life. While the display isn’t as premium as the HD 10 and doesn’t feel as snappy as the larger tablet, the Fire HD 8 is a solid option if you just want a basic tablet at a great price.
If you’re thinking about getting a Fire tablet for your kids, maybe as their first device, consider one of the Fire Kids Pro devices. They’re basically the same as the standard Fire tablets, but with added parental controls, a customizable home screen theme, a two-year warranty, a protective case, and a one-year subscription to Amazon Kids+. The latter is the company’s service that provides kid-friendly, ad-free games, books, videos, and other content that kids can access from their tablets.
