SAVE 45%: A solid budget choice for Amazon enthusiasts, the Fire HD 8 Plus tablet is on sale for just $59.99(opens in a new tab) to August 22. That’s $50 off its usual MSRP of $109.99.


The iPad isn’t the only tablet in town. If you’re an Amazon enthusiast, consider the Fire HD 8 Plus instead. It works well with other Amazon services and it’s much easier on your wallet, especially on sale.

Starting August 22, you can grab the Fire HD 8 Plus tablet(opens in a new tab) for just $59.99 on Amazon. It’s 45% off its regular price of $109.99.

The Fire HD 8 Plus performs best as a pure streaming and Kindle machine. It’s about the same size as an iPad mini with an eight-inch 1280 x 800 display and supports Amazon’s Appstore. (It doesn’t support Google Play or Apple’s App Store.) According to Mashable tech reporter Alex Perry, it doesn’t really work well with third-party apps, and overall performance is relatively poor. But if you rely on Amazon for literature, entertainment, and retail, it performs respectably.

You’ll get up to half a day of battery life, which is definitely enough to read, stream, and shop at your leisure. The HD 8 Plus supports wireless charging (unlike its sibling either) and has an upgraded 3GB of RAM. Otherwise, the HD 8 and HD 8 Plus(opens in a new tab) are the same.

One feature we particularly like about the Fire tablets: you can use them hands-free with Alexa. Even if it’s on standby, the HD 8 Plus will recognize your voice prompts – tell it to pull recipes, stream A league apartlisten to your morning playlist, video chat with your mom, and more.
