- Which to buy?
Amazon makes some of the most affordable and most popular Android tablets, and to no one’s surprise, many of its Fire Tablets go on sale during Prime Day.
Fire Tablet devices can run most of the popular media, streaming, and social media apps that you’ll find on more expensive tablets, plus they can handle quite a bit of productivity work. They’re also great for mobile gaming and for entertaining your little ones. And with multi-user and multi-account support, as well as Amazon’s Kids+ service, they make the perfect family tablet even more of a good value. The non-kid versions of the Fire Tablets can be had in an ad-free, or a cheaper, ad-supported option (and you can always upgrade to ad-free for an additional fee at a later time).
These Fire Tablets often go on sale throughout the year, but you’re unlikely to find a better deal on Amazon Devices than during Prime Day 2021. Here are the best Fire Tablet deals that we’ve seen so far.
The Fire HD 8 Plus is one of the most premium Fire Tablets you can buy in 2021, featuring a faster processor and wireless charging capability. When paired with the Wireless Charging Dock, you also get an Echo Show experience.VIEW DEAL

BEST FIRE 7 TABLET DEALS
The Fire 7 tablet is already so affordable that many people just drop one in their virtual cart almost without thinking about it. If it were available in a grocery store, you might expect to see it next to the gum and mints as an “impulse buy.”
The Fire 7 has a seven-inch IPS display and is available in configurations of 16GB and 32GB of storage, though you can add up to 512GB through a microSD card. In addition, the device gets up to seven hours of screen-on time on a charge, has front and rear cameras for photos and video calling, and even comes with hands-free Alexa access.
Fire 7 | $50 at Amazon
Fire HD 8 | $45 off Amazon
We expect the HD 8 to be Amazon’s top-selling Fire tablet this Prime Day. It comes in three colors and two storage configurations (32GB and 64GB), and you can increase the storage up to 1TB with a microSD card.
Fire HD 8 Plus | $45 off at Amazon
The Fire HD 8 Plus is Amazon’s premium tablet experience, featuring improved internal components and high-end features like wireless charging. If you want the best, this is the one to get.
BEST FIRE HD 8 TABLET DEALS
In 2020, Amazon introduced not one but two versions of its popular mid-sized tablets, the Fire HD 8 and the Fire HD 8 Plus. On the surface, there isn’t much (if anything) that differentiates the two devices. Instead, the differences come down to internal components and external features.
The Fire HD 8 is the tablet that most people will (and probably should) get, as it has the same display and design as the HD 8 Plus but comes in $20 cheaper than its premium sibling. However, what makes the HD 8 Plus worth considering are those extra features that point toward the future of Amazon tablets.
The Fire HD 8 Plus has a faster processor and more RAM than the HD 8, but what’s really interesting is that it can charge wirelessly. When paired with its Wireless Charging Dock accessory, you can even turn it into an Echo Show.
BEST FIRE HD 10 TABLET DEALS
Until the Fire HD 8 and 8 Plus (2020) were released, the Fire HD 10 (2019) was our pick for best Amazon Fire Tablet, and while it has lost that crown, for now, it is still an excellent device for media consumption and gaming.
While you can still grab that Fire HD 10 (2019) version at a nice discount, 2021 brought two new devices to the lineup — the Fire HD 10 (2021) and the Fire HD 10 Plus (2021). You can purchase both options with a Productivity Bundle, including a full year of Microsoft Office 365 and a bespoke Bluetooth Keyboard. The Fire HD 10 Plus (2021), like the Fire HD 8 Plus before it, is the only version that can charge wirelessly with an optional wireless charging dock accessory. It also comes with a bit more RAM than the standard model.

Fire HD 10 (2021) | $70 off at Amazon
Like its smaller cousin, the Fire HD 8 Plus, this powerful tablet comes with more RAM than the standard version and can wirelessly charge with an available wireless charging dock accessory. This makes it not only a great entertainment and productivity device but a suitable Echo Show alternative.

The 2021 edition comes with more RAM, new colors, and the option to bundle with a Bluetooth keyboard and Microsoft Office 365 in a productivity bundle.
BEST FIRE 7 KIDS EDITION TABLET DEALS
Amazon has been making a kid-friendly line of tablets for several years now under the moniker of Kids Edition devices. These all come with a durable and colorful case, as well as a one-year subscription to Amazon Kids+ (formerly Amazon FreeTime Unlimited), which is the company’s comprehensive set of parental controls and age-appropriate content. In addition, all Kids Edition Fire tablets come in three colors: pink, blue, and purple, and all can be purchased in two packs as well (in case your children aren’t great at sharing). Best of all, Amazon includes a 2-year replacement guarantee with the purchase.
The Fire 7 Kids Edition has been a popular product for several reasons, not the least of which is the price. As the smallest Kids Edition tablet, it’s also the least expensive. The other thing this tiny tablet has going for it is its size. The seven-inch screen is just about perfect for any kid to hold, be they a three-year-old toddler or a ten-year-old tween. Now in 2021, Amazon has introduced a Kids Pro line of Fire Tablets in all three available sizes, including the 7, 8, and 10-inch tablets. These are geared towards older children, ages 6-12 with more age appropriate content and permisions.
Fire 7 Kids Edition | $40 off at Amazon
This small tablet is affordable, portable, and it comes with a built-in stand in its case. Amazon also includes a 2-year replacement guarantee — if anything happens to it, you can get it replaced at no additional charge with no questions asked.
Fire 7 Kids Pro tablet | $40 off at Amazon
The Fire 7 Kids Edition tablet is getting an update in 2021! This version of the device features a customizable home screen, a digital store with parental controls, a slimmer case, and it’s even more lightweight than the last model!
Fire HD 8 Kids Edition | $70 off at Amazon
Upgrade to the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition for USB-C, an HD-quality screen, and up to 1TB in storage. In addition, today’s deal saves you over $80 instantly when you purchase two of the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablets in the same order.
Fire HD 8 Kids Pro | $70 off at Amazon
While its hardware specs are similar to the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition device, the Fire HD 8 Kids Pro is geared toward old children ages 6-12, with education and entertainment content that is more appropriate to that age range. This device also lets kids request apps and add select apps without parental approval, and there is a built-in web browser with parental controls.
BEST FIRE HD 8 KIDS EDITION TABLET DEALS
As with the grown-up tablets, the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition was our pick for the top Kids Edition Fire tablet. It has a better display than the 7-inch version, but it also has better cameras and speakers. Again, as with the recent regular Fire tablets, the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition charges via USB-C, which is nice if you don’t want to have too much cord clutter while charging. You can also expand the storage up to 1TB via a microSD card.
Of course, all of the other Kids Edition goodies are in place here, including the child-proof cover, Amazon Kids+ subscription, and bright color options. This tablet is still manageable with small hands, but it delivers a markedly better viewing experience. The Fire HD 8 Kids is also available in a Pro version for older children.
BEST FIRE HD 10 KIDS EDITION TABLET DEALS
If you have multiple young children in your household who happen to be good at sharing, then you may end up saving money by purchasing the larger Fire HD 10 Kids Edition instead of two or more of, the smaller tablet options.
The big and beautiful 10.1-inch screen is the same that is found on the regular Fire HD 10, and it is perfect for gathering around to watch movies or TV shows through Amazon Kids+, especially with the kid case and its kickstand.
If your kids do fight over the tablet, no worries! As with all Kids Edition Fire tablets, this one comes with a two-year worry-free guarantee that says that Amazon will replace a broken device for free! And if you have older children, you can also get the Fire HD 10 Kids in a Pro version.
