Amazon Kids Edition devices heavily discounted for Prime Day 2020

Amazon’s big Black Friday-level blowout sale was postponed in the summer due to the coronavirus outbreak, but the show must go on, and the 2020 Prime Day deals are finally here. This Prime member-exclusive event has everything from computers to furniture marked down to some of the lowest prices you’ll see all year, and it’s no surprise that Amazon’s own excellent Kindle and Fire devices will be on sale as well. A friendly reminder: once Prime Day deals come to an end, Black Friday deals soon start to show up on the horizon, so be here to check them out.

Amazon offers a number of these gadgets in configurations made just for kids, too, featuring built-in parental controls and edutainment tailored just for younger people. If you’re looking for Prime Day Amazon Kids Edition deals for a little techie you know, then read on, because we’ve got them all right here:

Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition — $60, was $100

If you’re looking for what is pretty much the cheapest name-brand tablet you can buy (and one that’s tough enough to withstand some rough handling from younger people), the Fire 7 is the one. This Alexa-powered tablet is ideal for kids’ entertainment and education and it comes loaded with all sorts of child-friendly apps and games right out of the box. This includes one free year of Amazon Kids+, which offers access to thousands of apps, games, e-books, videos, and more, and the bundled case protects the tablet housing and screen from life’s inevitable bumps and scrapes.

If that protective case isn’t enough, however, all Amazon Kids Edition devices are covered by a no-questions-asked two-year warranty (meaning that if it breaks, Amazon will replace it free of charge). The Fire 7 Kids Edition tablet can be yours for $60 for Prime Day, saving you $40.

Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition — $80, was $140

If you’re willing to spend a little more on some upgrades over the super-cheap Fire 7, the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition is a fantastic tablet for the money. It has all the great child-friendly content and features of the Fire 7 along with an upgraded 8-inch HD display, superior hardware performance, and 32GB of storage instead of 16GB. And, like the other Kids Edition tablets, the Fire HD 8 comes with a rugged protective case, built-in parental controls, and a generous two-year warranty in case of damage or breakage.

The Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet would normally set you back $140, but it’s on sale for just $80 for the 2020 Prime Day sale.

Amazon Kindle Kids Edition — $75, was $110

The Kindle is the device that kicked off Amazon’s successful foray into hardware, and even in the age of tablets, these humble e-readers are still going strong. The Kindle Kids Edition is, hands-down, the best e-reader for children, and it’s a great choice for young bookworms and parents who feel that their young ones might not yet be ready for a tablet. Its crisp e-ink display is easy on the eyes (both young and old), and the Kids Edition comes with your choice of a colorful protective flip-case along with one year of Amazon Kids+ and FreeTime Unlimited that offer thousands of hours of content right out of the box.

For Prime Day, Amazon Prime members can score the Kindle Kids Edition e-reader for just $75 after a nice $35 discount.

Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Edition — $130, was $200

If you’re not looking to go too cheap and want the best kids’ tablet that Amazon makes, the Fire HD 10 Kids Edition is an easy choice (and it still manages to be pretty affordable). It sports a larger 10.1-inch 1080p touch display that’s better for enjoying entertainment than the e-reader-sized Fire 7 and Fire HD 8, but comes with all the child-friendly features and parental controls that we like about those smaller Kids Edition tablets. It also has some improved specs, namely a snappier octa-core processor that makes it better for things like streaming kid-friendly videos and playing educational games.

The Fire HD 10 Kids Edition usually goes for $200, but a $70 Prime Day savings lets you grab this great kids’ tablet for just $130 right now. Like the other Kids Edition devices, the Fire HD 10 comes with a free year of Amazon Kids+ and FreeTime Unlimited, a rugged protective case (available in several fun colors), and that reassuring two-year guarantee.

sodastream terra sparkling water maker deal prime day 2022

Do you buy a 24-pack of seltzer water every time you do to the store? Are you constantly cracking open a fizzy water and filling your recycling bin with cans? There is a cheaper solution that will also help save the environment: Make your own soda water. This SodaStream Prime Day deal makes the convenient device super cheap. It's now only $90 instead of its usual $160 That's $10 cheaper than it has ever been. It's a fantastic $70 discount, meaning this device will pay for itself almost twice as fast as it would at full price. Check it out at Amazon while Prime Day deals are still live.

Why you should buy the SodaSteam E-Terra during Prime Day
Prime Day is a great time to buy appliances. Amazon is having fantastic price cuts on some of the most popular models, while competing retailers try to offer their own sales. Target is having Target Circle Week, for instance, which is cutting prices on lots of home appliances. But we're here to talk about the SodaStream E-Terra. SodaStream is the biggest brand name in the soda water biz, and this is one of their simplest carbonated water makers. The E-Terra comes with the basic SodaStream device, which has a thin profile that will fit on any counter, right next to a toaster and a Keurig. You also get a reusable, dishwasher-safe bottle for use when carbonating the water, and a free CO2 cannister. If you want fancier features, like the ability to make cocktails, consider a fancier model like the SodaStream Art.

If you and your family members are prone to misplacing things like keys, remote controls, and phones, you should think about taking advantage of Amazon's Prime Day deals for Tile trackers. These Bluetooth-powered devices will make sure that you won't lose anything again, and with the discounts for the shopping event, you'll be able to afford multiples of them to attach to as many objects as you need to.

Apple has released its own version of the Bluetooth trackers named the AirTag, but our Apple AirTag versus Tile tags comparison reveals that you're better off going for Tile's products because they come in different designs, and they work with many more devices while the Apple AirTag is limited to iPhones and iPads. If you're sold on Tile's trackers, you should check out Amazon's offer for Prime Day while stocks are still available.

N8 PRO+ lifestyle image with child nearby

This content was produced in partnership with ECOVACS
Amazon's Prime Day is back, and its own tech, devices, and gear aren't the only things worth shopping during the big event. This year there's a definite focus on more practical items, like cleaning supplies, food, and other items you might need -- but can get at an excellent discount -- as opposed to electronics like TVs, game consoles, tablets, and beyond. But one tech item that should be in every home is a smart cleaning solution, or rather a smart vacuum and mop combo, precisely like what ECOVACS offers. Each model is different, but for the most part they offer hands-free cleaning and maintenance so you can focus on your busy life, and not have to worry about all the messes that you leave behind, that your kids might make, or that your pets might create. In the interest of brevity, we've collected all of the best ECOVACS deals that are live as part of the event, and you can peruse those below.
ECOVACS DEEBOT N8 PRO+ -- $300, was $700

Most smart vacuums are expensive, inordinately expensive -- we get it. But the N8+ PRO is an entry-level vacuum and mop that offers a host of intelligent features, for a low price, and that's before you even consider the Prime Day discounts going on right now. And just because you're sticking to a budget doesn't mean you'll sacrifice features, as this vacuum and mop combo is smart, capable, and convenient. That explains why the N8 PRO+ has become the top choice for over 500,000 users.
