Need a cheap tablet? Amazon’s $50 Fire tablet is a pretty good option, but right now the cheapest model with 8GB of storage is out of stock. The good news is that the 16GB model is on sale for just $60.

The even better news is that for just $5 more than that you can snag a Fire HD 8 with a higher-resolution display and 50 percent more RAM. The current $65 price tag is one of the lowest I’ve seen for this model.

Meanwhile, if you want to save even more money, Woot is selling some older Amazon tablets for as little as $30, and Amazon has a refurbished Fire HD 6 for just $28.

Here are some of the day’s best deals.

  1. The newest gen Fire tablets have the ff
    features that older gen models lack, which
    makes them the better value

    – they are Alexa enabled
    – they have a microSDXC slot that can take
    a microSDXC up to 200 GB.

    One of the problems with the cheap Android phones is
    that they can usually only take a microSDHC
    up to 32 GB. Most new phones can only
    take microSDXC up to 128 GB.

    An exception is the Lenovo Moto Z Play,
    which can take microSDXC up to 256 GB),
    but the Z Play is $450. An indiegogo
    campaign is making a slider module keyboard
    for the Moto Z for ~$100 + shipping. As
    Lenovo has promised to carry the Z module
    system into future models, you can take the
    slider keyboard to your future phones.
    Additionally, Android 6.0 forward can treat
    the microSDXC as internal flash storage
    for programs and data.

  2. “Fire HD 8 with a higher-resolution display and 50 percent more RAM.” Fire 7 has 1GB ram, Fire HD 8 has 1.5GB ram, not 2GB. I suspect the ultimate choice would be whichever one can be rom’d to allow root, and remove FireOS.

    1. Maybe, but Amazon is constantly running 1-day, or 1-week sales on devices. In this case, it’s a Mother’s Day promotion.
