Valentine’s Day is a day that celebrates love, togetherness, and, in Amazon’s case, rather sizable discounts to several of its Kindle Fire tablets and Kindle ebook readers.

For those looking for an ebook reader, the base model Kindle can be had for $60, down from its original $80 price tag. Those looking for some light with their reading will find the Kindle Paperwhite for $100, down from $120.

Over on Amazon’s forked Android tablet front, we have the base models of the Fire HD 6 and Fire HD 7, down from their original $100 and $140 price points to $84 and $114, respectively. If you have kids in mind for Valentine’s Day, the Fire HD 6 Kids Edition and its larger counterpart will go for $134 and $164, respectively, down from $150 and $190. Keep in mind that the Fire HD 6 and the Kids Edition differ only in the latter’s access to kid’s content, a bumper case, some user interface changes, and a warranty that covers accidental damage. Finally, for those with a wider budget, the Fire HDX 8.9 will go for $300, a hefty knock-down from its original $480 price tag.

Interestingly enough, the oft-maligned Fire Phone will go on sale for $200. No, the Fire Phone hasn’t done well in the eyes of critics and wallets, but you’ll still be getting a respectably powerful smartphone that includes one year of Amazon Prime for free. If you’re interested in picking one up for your beloved, the sale starts tomorrow, February 11.

Not interested in any of Amazon’s offerings? Fear not, for you can get a litany of discounted jewelry, candy, and grooming products, among others. You can check them out here and see if anything suits your fancy.

Keep in mind each deal has its own expiration date, so if you see something you like, you should probably jump on it.

Shopping the best tablet deals is a great way to land a useful device with some savings. The Amazon Fire tablet lineup is made up of tablets designed for both kids and adults, and while we aren’t seeing as many Amazon Fire tablet deals as we have in the past, the ones we are seeing offer some huge savings. Some of these deals are exclusive to Amazon Prime subscribers and we’ve included those details below. Much of the remaining Amazon Fire tablet deals are on refurbished models, which can be a good thing, as refurbished models are backed by Amazon assurances and shopping refurbished can land some serious discounts. We’ve rounded up all of the best Amazon Fire tablet deals so you know just what savings are in store for you. If you’re looking for a selection of new tablets offering some savings there are a lot of Samsung tablet deals, iPad deals, and even Kindle deals worth checking out right now as well.
Amazon Fire HD 8 (refurbished) -- $60, was $85

If you just need a basic tablet for simple functions such as browsing the internet, doing online shopping, and watching streaming shows, the incredibly affordable Amazon Fire HD 8 may be enough. It's not going to wow you with its performance, as it's only equipped with 2GB of RAM with limited storage of 32GB, but it's got an 8-inch touchscreen with HD resolution and built-in support for Amazon's Alexa, so if that's all you need, go for the Amazon Fire HD 8.

If you’ve been waiting around for tablet deals to fall into your lap, today is your lucky day! Right now, you can purchase the Amazon Fire HD 10 at Woot for just $70. This isn’t a refurbished product either, so you won’t have to worry about what kind of life the HD 10  had before it arrived at your home. While this is a 2021 model, the 53% off sale may only last until new stock is depleted. If you want a new tablet and want to save some money, we highly recommend this deal.

Why you should buy the Amazon Fire HD 10 tablet
This version of the Amazon Fire HD 10 is a Lockscreen Mode model. This means that sponsored content and special offers will be displayed on both the Home Screen and Lockscreen. These pop-ups aren’t too distracting, and they’re one of the main reasons you’ll be saving a ton of dough on the HD 10. Beyond this one little distraction though, this is a terrific Amazon Fire tablet that has seen a lot of fanfare over the years.

While tablets may not be an essential part of modern-day life like a phone or a computer, they have a ton of uses that make owning one an excellent utility.

That's why we're happy to see some substantial discounts as part of the early Memorial Day sales. There are big discounts on Samsung, Apple, and everything in between, although if you can't quite find what you're looking for here, be sure to check our roundup of our favorite yearlong tablet deals.
