Amazon Fire HD 10 for $64.99!

Amazon Prime members can get a very sweet deal on the Fire HD 10 tablet, if you have an old device to trade in. The regular price is $149.99 but it is currently on sale for $99.99.

With a trade in (Kindle or Fire, IPad, or Galaxy Tab) you get an additional 25% off and a minimum credit of $10.00 (if the old device works and does not have a cracked screen) or $5.00 (if screen cracked and / or not working). Some models might be worth more. Final price = $99.99 - $25.00 - $10.00 = $64.99 with free prime shipping

I had a heavily-used three year old Fire HD8 with a major crack and battery life that could be measured in minutes. I printed a free shipping label from Amazon and used an old Amazon box to ship it in. Just dropped it off at a UPS Store. My credit was just $5.00 so I paid $69.99 for the new one.

The Fire HD 10 has a 10" screen, faster processor and more memory. Fire tablets have a few quirks - you have to side-load the Google Play store app, and I find Alexa annoying. Overall though it's a great tablet for internet surfing and watching movies on Amazon Prime or Netflix while we're travelling.

Here's the link to the Amazon page:

Brian, we haven't used the Fire tablet. How is it for reading e-books? I loathe the new Kindle 10.

Zippy: You're referring to a Kindle Reader, not the Kindle Fire HD 10 Android tablet, right?

Amazon includes a Kindle app on their Fire tablets, so I think the interface is going to be similar. I've never owned a Kindle Reader but the display on the Fire HD 10 is very good unless you're in bright sunlight. I've also found a lot of good free books & magazines through the Amazon Prime library. Thousands of titles are free for downloading, new ones added every week.

I'm still seeing that deal when following that link.

It looks like you have to have Prime membership. Maybe you're not Prime??

Yes, I am. I was shopping from my phone, which performed a software upgrade this afternoon which logged me out of Amazon. I'm on my computer now and can see the deal. Thanks!
