So many people out there still haven’t fully accepted the fact that Americans are going to have to cope with some seriously huge lifestyle changes in the weeks and months to come. The simple fact of the matter is that we reacted to the novel coronavirus outbreak far too late and even now, we’re still not doing enough to slow the spread of the potentially deadly COVID-19 disease. I live in a state where it has been mandated that all nonessential businesses must close, and yet half the stores in my area are still open and there are still people visiting them all the time.
Things are already very bad. Hospitals in big cities are near or even at full capacity already and many experts believe we’re nowhere close to the peak of this pandemic in the US yet. The shame of it all is that many people aren’t going to fully appreciate how devastating the novel coronavirus is until they’re impacted personally. Sure, there are treatments being tested and sure, there are coronavirus vaccines in the works, but they’re not going to be available anytime soon.
Long story short, please, stay inside your homes unless you absolutely must go out, because that’s the only way we’re going to make it to the other side of this and still have at least some semblance of normalcy.
With all that dreariness out of the way, we’ve got a great batch of deals to tell you about on Friday on a series of devices that can play a huge role in helping you stay productive and pass the time while you’re self-quarantined. Things like Apple AirPods and Amazon Kindles can definitely help pass the time, and you’ll find deep discounts on both of them right now. But there’s another set of deals that you should check out right now on Amazon’s various Fire tablets because they’re down to the lowest prices we’ve seen so far this year.
Before we get to the deals themselves, we should note that this big Fire sale (get it?) is available only to Amazon Prime members, so you should head back over to the AirPods or Kindle pages if you don’t subscribe to Prime. That said, you can get a 30-day Amazon Prime free trial if you aren’t already a member, and you’ll enjoy all of Amazon’s Prime perks for free.
On to the deals! The one our readers have jumped on most is the special sale that slashes the Fire HD 10 Tablet from $150 down to just $99.99. That’s an incredible price for a $150 tablet with a large high-definition. You’ll also find two additional deals on Fire HD 10 Tablets bundles with a case, screen protector, and a 15W USB charger. Additional discounts are applied at checkout, so you won’t see the final prices on the product pages themselves.
If $99.99 is a bit too pricey for your budget, you’ll still find tremendous value in the Fire HD 8 Tablet, which is on sale right now for only $49.99. It notmally costs $80, so that’s a heck of a deal. Accessory bundles are on sale as well, and discounts are applied at checkout.
Finally, we have the entry-level Fire 7 Tablet that drops from $50 to just $39.99, and there are also two bundles with various accessories. The screen might be a bit smaller and lower-resolution, but you still get all the awesome apps and services on the Fire 7 that you would on the pricier tablets.
