Get yourself a Fire HD 8 for just $55 and take your entertainment on the go

What kind of tablet you want to buy will depend a lot on what you want to use it for. Some tablets are practically mini-laptops in their right, being able to effortlessly launch productivity apps and even do some light gaming. But these sorts of tablets are expensive, and they don’t feel quite right without an expensive keyboard cover as well. If you’re just looking for something to watch or read with during a commute, you don’t need to pay several hundred dollars for a tablet. For that, something like the Fire HD 8 tablet will work better for you.

Normally, the Fire HD 8 is $90, which is a bit steep, but the tablet regularly goes on sale, especially during this time of the year. Right now, you can grab yourself this Amazon tablet for just $55, as part of Alexa’s Birthday Deals.
