Amazon has dropped the price on the Amazon Fire HD 8 32GB to $59.99 (reg. $109.99). If you’ve been hemming and hawing about purchasing one, I strongly urge you to make the leap now! This is the lowest price this version has ever been offered at by Amazon. (We’ve seen the 16GB version for $10 less, but this has double the memory and storage space.)
I do not consider myself a tech gadget person AT ALL, but I do love my Fire Tablet! It has gotten so much use and was worth every penny. I’ve found it’s an extremely versatile device. Here are just a few of the ways I’ve used mine:
- Streaming through Amazon Instant Video. Because I’m an Amazon Prime member, I have instant access to many FREE TV shows and movies! I’ve even been known to prop up my Fire in the bathroom to watch a movie while I soak in the tub!
- Reading. Yes, I actually do use my Fire as a reader. Two books I’ve read on my Fire for my book club included Stephen King’s 11/22/63 and Hosseini’s And the Mountains Echoed. I sometimes turn on the text-to-audio feature so I can listen to my books while I drive or work. This is an awesome feature!
- Entertainment for Kids. Sometimes I’ll let the kids play free games, enjoy free ebooks, or watch kid shows through Amazon Instant Video.
- Airplane Rides. I love packing my Fire on the airplane for reading and watching movies! And yes, the FAA has determined that electronic devices such as the Fire are safe to use in airplane mode from gate-to-gate! So you could use it the entire duration of your trip.
All in all, it’s a great device! And, I love that this version is so affordable.
