If you’re in the market for a new tablet, there are really only two games in town. You can pay a premium and pick up one of Apple’s iPads, or you can get way more bang for your buck and opt for one of Amazon’s Fire tablets. With the latter, you’ll enjoy solid specs, killer battery life, an above-average display, and you’ll get access to Amazon’s wildly popular virtual assistant Alexa. Plus, you’ll save hundreds of dollars compared to the price of an iPad — especially if you snag a Fire Tablet right now.

For a limited time, Amazon is offering the 8GB Fire Essentials Bundle for $49.99 or the 16GB Fire Essentials Bundle for $69.99 using the promo code FIREBUNDLE. Those are the prices Amazon charges for just the tablets alone, but in the bundle you’ll also get a genuine Amazon cover and a screen protector. The code will only work from now until the end of the day on Saturday, February 4, so grab one while you can.

Here are some highlights from the product page:

  • Includes the latest Fire 7″ Tablet with Special Offers ($49.99 for 8GB, $69.99 for 16GB), Amazon Cover ($24.99), and Nupro Screen Protector ($12.99).
  • Beautiful 7″ IPS display and 1.3 GHz quad-core processor. Available in four colors.
  • Now with the Alexa cloud-based voice service – just press and ask
  • Amazon Underground, where thousands of apps, games and even in-app items are 100% free
  • Enjoy millions of movies, TV shows, songs, Kindle e-books, apps and games
  • 8 or 16 GB of internal storage and a microSD slot for up to 200 GB of expandable storage
  • Prime members get unlimited access to a huge selection of songs, books, videos and more
