Buy for a Great Price & Value

Buy for a Great Price & Value
$49.99 from Amazon

The 2019 Amazon Fire 7 tablet with Alexa offers a great value to users at $50 with Special Offers. It's very hard to find a name brand tablet with good reviews, regular software updates and a plethora of accessories under $50. 

At times you can even buy the Fire 7 tablet on a monthly payment plan of $10 a month if you prefer to spread out the purchase to make it more affordable. This is not an option we see from other budget tablet makers. Amazon offers this right now for the launch of the new model, and also typically offers it during the holidays.

Instead of running a very old version of Android and cutting lots corners like we see with many cheap tablets, Amazon delivers a good tablet that's actually worth more than you pay for it. Amazon claims this tablet is more durable in drop tests than the iPad and twice as durable as the iPad mini.

The Special Offers help keep the price down, as does the fact that Amazon is hoping you buy a lot of stuff from them using the Fire 7 tablet, but you still get a lot of value for $49.99.

    I would disagree with this. We bought our two kids (3 and 5) two 7″ kindle tablets on prime day for $30 each. They have both used them for over a year, without a problem. Part of that is because we bought two shock- and drop- proof cases for $10 each on eBay. We added 16gb SD cards at $8 each, and suddenly we have almost as good a deal as the Kid Tablet, but for less than $50. If they break one (not sure how that would be possible, as these cases are pretty sturdy), we’ll just pick up another tablet when they go on sale (seems to happen 3 times a year).
