The number of sales on Prime Day can be overwhelming. How do you know which tablet to buy when there are so many cheap tablets to choose from? With Prime Day 2020 winding down, there isn’t much more time to take advantage of Amazon’s deals. While there are deals on iPads today, what if you don’t want to spend over $200 on a tablet? The Fire HD 10 Tablet is a fraction of the iPad Mini’s cost and does many of the same things. Today, you can get the newest Fire Tablet for just $95 — that’s a savings of $70 — and it will keep up with all of your tasks just as well as the iPad Mini.

The black Fire HD 10 Tablet on sale today for Prime Day has 32GB of memory, Wi-Fi, and the new 2.0 GHz octa-core processor with 2GB of RAM. The 10.1-inch display is 1080p Full HD, so your movies and photos will be displayed beautifully. The enhanced Wi-Fi allows you to play games, stream, and surf all at the same time without anything slowing down. With up to 12 hours of battery life, you can enjoy downloaded content on the go.
