, Amazon hasn't unveiled its Black Friday 2019 plans just yet, but if history is any indication, one thing seems pretty much etched in stone. The e-commerce giant's in-house hardware will definitely headline the no doubt extensive list of products set to be discounted for the holidays, with some of the year's biggest price cuts coming soon to a number of Fire tablets and digital media players, as well as Kindle e-readers, Echo smart speakers, and perhaps even the recently released Echo Buds
But if patience is not your strongest suit and you're in the market for a children-oriented slate at a killer price, you'll be happy to hear the Fire 7 and Fire HD 8 Kids Editions are already heavily marked down as part of Amazon's early "Happy HoliDeals" event. Unlike all those special offers on popular Anker accessories
ranging from wireless chargers to wireless earbuds
and wireless speakers, these two deals don't have an expiration date explicitly listed, although odds are they won't last long... in anticipation of Black Friday revivals later this month.
That's right, you're looking at Black Friday-level savings of $40, equating to no less than 40 percent off the regular price of a 16GB Fire 7 Kids Edition and 31 percent off its bigger 8-inch brother in a 32 gig storage variant. While it's certainly not unusual to see Amazon's best-selling Fire tablets
offered at decent discounts
, this is a pretty rare deal and, best of all, you don't need a Prime membership to take advantage of it.
Keep in mind that the 7 and 8-inchers are slightly older than a 10-inch model refreshed just last month
and still available at a significantly higher $200 price. That being said, the 2018-released Fire HD 8 Kids Edition
is really no pushover, sporting a decent display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels and promising to keep the lights on for up to 10 hours between charges.
Meanwhile, the Fire 7 Kids Edition is, well, cheap enough to make you ignore its sub-par list of features. Especially when you get a 2-year worry-free guarantee at no extra cost, as well as one year of FreeTime Unlimited access.
