[Deal] Amazon’s Fire 7-inch tablet now $10 off for a limited time

Amazon-Fire-7-hero-ta

Amazon offers some really great value in its Fire tablet, priced at only $ 50. And now, they’re adding even more value by offering the 7-inch tablet for an additional $ 40 off!

The tablet is normally priced at $ 50, but the $ 10 discount will bring it down to $ 40. The model without special offers regularly costs $ 65, but this discount brings it down to an appealing $ 55, which is about the same price as the version with special offers at no discount.

As far as specifications go, this 7-inch tablet has a 1.3GHz quad-core processor in tow, 8GB of internal storage, a front and rear camera, and a decent battery that should hold up to a little over a day of frequent usage. At a resolution of 1024 x 600, the display isn’t the best, but still hard to pass up at that temporary $ 40 rate.

There’s currently no official timeline as to when the discount will end, so you may want to snatch up this tablet rather quickly. At $ 40, the Fire 7-inch tablet truly offers some of the best value on the market (review here), and is a hard one to pass up.

Anyone plan on buying?
