This is a very quick post today, because I think it is going to sell out. I don’t mention deals very often here, but 3-4 times a year, I make an exception.
I’ve long been a fan of the Amazon Fire HD 10. I was able to get a pair for a little less than $100 (one would have been $100) and they’ve been perfect for my kids. I don’t know how I would have survived the hell of distance learning without them. I certainly didn’t have a plan to buy laptops for a 6 and 7 year old – even iPads would have set me back nearly $1000.
I have one for myself and it’s great for anything that I would do with my phone, but with a bigger screen.
Today’s deal is for an Amazon Fire HD 10 and Show Mode Dock for $70. (You may have to be a Prime member to get the deal.) There are a couple of things to note. First, it’s the previous generation, which is the version I bought a couple of years ago. The latest ones are a little faster, but not much else is different. Secondly, it’s refurbished. In my experience, Amazon’s refurbished products are very good. Finally, the Show Mode Dock generally runs around $50 or $60 by itself.
I’ve wanted a Show Mode Dock for a long time, but I could never justify paying half the cost of the device to add wireless charging at an angle as a photo frame. My 2011 HP/Palm Touchpad could do that and the dock was very cheap. Amazon has lowered the price to $38, but that’s still too much for a $100 tablet in my opinion.
I have to be honest, I’m jealous that some reader out there is going to be able to get the tablet and the dock for $70. I can’t justify buying another Amazon Fire HD 10 so this deal doesn’t make sense for me.
I’d move quick on this one. It probably won’t be around for long.
