Prime Day Fire tablet deals: Get a Fire HD 10 or Fire HD 8 Kids Edition for just $80

This story is part of Amazon Prime Day, CNET’s guide on everything you need to know and how to make sure you get the best deal.

Case in point: Previously announced sale prices on Fire tablets are now available. The Fire HD 10, Amazon’s best tablet, has dropped down to just $80 ($70 off), the lowest price we’ve ever seen for it. The Kids Edition of the Fire HD 8 is also down to $80. Price drops on the 7-inch version of the Kids Edition haven’t hit yet, but Amazon has already pledged that it will be dropping to $60, which is $40 off its list price of $100. Both Fire Kids Edition tablets include a case and a year of Amazon’s Kids Plus subscription service, a $36 value.
