• Amazon started its hardware business with the Kindle lineup and it’s now best-known for its Echo and Fire TV devices, but Fire Tablets are still among the best in the world.
  • People often forget about Amazon’s tablet lineup, but today’s deal on the excellent Fire HD 8 Tablet serves as a fantastic reminder.
  • For one day only on Tuesday, you can buy the entry-level $80 Fire HD 8 Tablet for just $49.99, and the upgraded version with more storage is on sale at an even deeper discount.
  • Visit BGR’s homepage for more stories.

We have told you this before but now we’re going to say it again in light of the awesome one-day Gold Box deal Amazon is running on Tuesday: if you want a new tablet, there are really only two different options you should consider. If you want the best, fastest, and sleekest tablet out there and you’re willing to pay a premium to get it, you need one of Apple’s iPads or iPad Pro tablets. They’re pricey but they’re definitely worth it, and several iPad models happen to be on sale right now at Amazon. You really can’t go wrong with an iPad, iPad mini, iPad Air, or iPad Pro.

If you don’t want to spend that much money — and we don’t blame you — then there’s only one other type of tablet you should bother considering, and that’s one of Amazon’s Fire Tablet models. There is no better value in the industry right now. In fact, nothing even comes close. That’s true on a normal day, but today it’s especially true in light of the awesome one-day sale Amazon is running.

Until the end of the day on Tuesday, you get pick up an $80 Fire HD 8 Tablet for just $49.99, which happens to be the same price as the Fire 7 Tablet despite how much better the HD 8 is. It’s faster, it has a larger display, and the screen is HD resolution which makes it far more clear and vivid. $49.99 gets you the entry-level model with 16GB of RAM, or you can double that to 32GB for just $69.99. The 32GB model typically sells for $110, so that’s a huge discount!

Of note, both of these deals cover the Fire HD 8 versions “with special offers,” but the models without special offers are on sale as well. If you want our advice, save $15 and get the versions with special offers. That just means that the tablets display unobtrusive ads on the lock screen. Who cares? It’s not like you sit around staring at your tablet’s lock screen, right?!

Today’s Fire HD 8 Tablet deals are the lowest prices we’ve seen since before the holidays last year, so definitely take advantage.
