You can score the Fire HD 8 tablet, one of the most popular tablets on the market, for the discounted price of only $64. The current model has up to 12 hours of battery life, double the storage of previous versions, Dolby audio sound, and 50 percent more RAM for faster performance.

The Fire HD 8 has a quick, responsive interface and brilliant high-definition display. A fast 1.3 GHz quad-core processor powers the tablet, and the widescreen 1280-by-800-pixel high-definition display makes watching your favorite shows even more enjoyable.

In addition to streaming entertainment, the tablet is also ideal for reading and play.
