If you’re in the market for one of the best tablets, Amazon’s Fire tablet lineup has a lot to offer. Right now that includes some discounts, as Amazon Fire tablet deals are ripe for the picking. Amazon has done a good job with the lineup when it comes to keeping things affordable, and those regularly decent prices are even lower with these deals. Reading onward you’ll find some deals on both refurbished and brand new Amazon Fire Tablets, as well as some information on why these are the best Amazon Fire Tablet deals currently available.

Amazon Fire HD 8 (refurbished) — $55, 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.

Amazon Fire HD 10 (refurbished) — $80, was $140

The Amazon Fire HD 10 offers a large 10.1-inch touchscreen with Full HD resolution, for bright colors and sharp details when watching streaming shows and playing games, and faster performance compared to the previous version of the tablet with its 3GB of RAM. Its 32GB of storage space may be increased by up to 1TB using its microSD card slot, and its durable design and strengthened display makes sure that it won’t easily get damaged by daily wear and tear.

Amazon Fire HD 10 Plus (refurbished) — $85, was $160

The Amazon Fire HD 10 Plus is another in the lineup that offers some amazing value. It has a 10.1-inch Full HD screen and can reach up to 12 hours of battery life on a single charge. This display is also 10% brighter than previous models, which makes the Fire HD 10 Plus a tablet you can use in almost any lighting situation. Some features that make the Fire HD 10 Plus model stand out over the Amazon Fire HD 10 are wireless charging, 4GB of RAM, and a soft-touch finish that makes it look pretty sleek.

Amazon Fire Max 11 (64GB) — $180, was $230

The tablet is powered by an octa-core processor and 4GB of RAM, and it supports Wi-Fi 6 for lag-free internet.

Amazon Fire 7 -- $40, was $60

If you want what's arguably the cheapest tablet that's still worth your money, you want a Fire tablet. The Amazon Fire 7 is the cheapest of Amazon's cheap tablets. It's not going to set the world on fire in terms of performance or display quality, but it gives you easy access to tons of apps, you can watch videos and browse the web on it, and -- of course -- it's fine for reading books and magazines. It's not a bad little device to consider getting if you have a Prime account, as it'll let you take full advantage of your membership benefits.

Should you buy a tablet on Black Friday or wait for Cyber Monday?
11-inch version of Huawei MatePad Pro tablet

A lot of folks wait all year for Black Friday so they can pick up a tablet, but many also worry about whether waiting for Cyber Monday is a better idea. Well, we'll look into that, as well as some great Black Friday deals you can pick up right now.
Should you buy a tablet on Black Friday?
Yes, absolutely, especially since Black Friday is one of the best times to pick up electronics like tablets. If you're worried about Cyber Monday, the truth is that while offers tend to be mirrored, there's no absolute guarantee that you'll find the same item on sale for the same price or at all. That means you're better off picking up Black Friday tablet deals when you see them rather than waiting. That said, even if you do find a better deal on Cyber Monday, you should still be within the return window for Black Friday, so you can return that tablet for a full refund and buy the one with the better offer.

Fire HD 10 tablet --  $75, was $150

The Fire HD 10 tablet is Amazon's attempt to hit the budget tablet market running, and they do a surprisingly good job of it. You get a 10.1-inch FHD display with relatively good brightness and 3GB of RAM, which is more than enough for most day-to-day usage. With this deal, you also get 32GB of storage, although you can bump it up to the 64GB version if you feel you need it. It has the same experience as the Fire TVs since it carries the same OS, so if you're already a fan of that, you're in luck! One thing we need to point out, though, is that this is a lock screen-ad-supported version, which is why it's so cheap. Luckily, you can get it without the lock screen ads for an extra $15, and we encourage you to do that if you can.
