UK Fire Friends: Fire HD 8 Tablets at Black Friday Prices

Good news for those of you in the UK who want to get your hands on a brand new Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet. - Amazon has dropped the price down to Black Friday levels!

The same limited-time offer was available for those in the US last week and I received messages from a few of you in the UK who were disappointed to miss out.

So I'm happy to be able to let you know it's your turn now! As I mentioned on my blog last week, with most of us restricted to our homes, the online world has become more important than ever, and the Fire is a great way to access movies, magazines, books and so much more!

HERE'S THE DEAL - AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW

(Prices on Amazon are subject to change at any time and without notice. Please confirm all prices before purchasing products. LoveMyFire.com is not responsible for any price changes or purchases you make. Please see Terms of Use.)

-Fire HD 8": £35 OFF = ONLY £44.99
Colours: Black, yellow, blue, red

Act quickly if you want to take advantage of this great deal - it's not clear how long it will be available as Amazon has only confirmed that this is a 'limited time offer'.

Flash Sale on Amazon Fire HD 8 Tablets

A quick newsflash today to let you know that there is currently a sale on Amazon Fire HD 8 tablets.

This will be great timing for some of us - I've never been so grateful for online communication as I am at the moment!

Not only has it enabled us all to keep up with the latest news and advice and in contact with friends and family worldwide, but it's also given us all a way to keep occupied if we need to stay at home.

If - like me - you have a large family, then the more devices available the better!

Sadly this deal is available on Amazon.com only and not in the UK

Will the Peloton App Work With the Fire Tablet?

If you've seen advertisements for the Peloton app then, like me, you might have felt quite tempted to give it a go!

Peloton is a fitness company with its main focus on indoor cycling, but its app - launched late last year - includes yoga, strength, meditation and toning classes too. It's designed to help people get fit in their own homes and offers a variety of classes to fit around any schedule, with sessions running from 10 to 60 minutes.

The app is free to try for the first 30 days and if you're already a Peloton member, access to the app continues to be complimentary. If not, the app membership fee is $12.99 per month after the trial period.

******UPDATE Feb 26 2020 ******

Since writing this post at the end of January, there has been an update to the Amazon Fire app... and the good news is that you can now use the Peloton app on your Fire device, not just on Fire TV! Yay! 🙂

If you're a Fire user looking for the perfect way to get fit, then this app may be it! Peloton reports that people who downloaded the app to their Fire TVs worked out almost 30% more than those who tried it on any other platform. With the complete freedom you get from using Peloton on your Fire tablet, that figure is likely to grow even higher!

*******************************

I received a message this week from John in Ohio who had been experiencing problems in getting the app to work on his Fire tablet. After checking into it, I can confirm that whilst the app is compatible with Amazon Fire TV, it isn't compatible with Fire tablets. ☹

The only way to view it using a Fire tablet is via the web, but - as John discovered, it can be quite laggy.

Great Alternative For Fire Tablets

Whilst we may be out of luck with the Peloton app, those of us with Fire tablets can take advantage of the excellent Daily Workouts app.

This app is totally FREE (although it does contain ads) and it covers a good selection of exercises. Much of the content can be view WITHOUT internet, which is really handy.

There's a Pro version of the app available too, which includes more workouts, plus routines for Pilates, stretch, ball and kettlebell workouts.

Do YOU have a favorite fitness app for your Fire?

Please do contact me and let me know so I can include it in a future article.

Amazon Slashes Price of Fire Tablets AGAIN - for a Limited Time

If you're kicking yourself that you didn't bag a bargain with the big reductions on Fire Tablets during Black Friday week, then I have good news for you.

Amazon seems to have reduced certain Fire Tablets AGAIN and there are still savings to be had on 3 popular devices.

(Prices on Amazon are subject to change at any time and without notice. Please confirm all prices before purchasing products. LoveMyFire.com is not responsible for any price changes or purchases you make. Please see Terms of Use.)

Here are the current deals:

  • Fire HD 8" - $30 OFF = ONLY $49.99
    (Colors: black, blue, yellow, red - comes with 3 months of Kindle Unlimited for FREE)
  • Fire 7" - $10 OFF = ONLY $39.99
    (black, blue, plum, sage)
  • Fire HD 7" Kids Edition - $40 OFF = ONLY $59.99
    (Covers: purple, pink, or blue - comes with 1 year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited and a 2-year worry-free guarantee)

With only $10 difference between the Fire HD 8" and the Fire 7", I strongly recommend opting for the 8" model. It's a fantastic price for a device which is not only larger but offers a longer battery life too, plus the 3 months of Kindle Unlimited.

Any of these would make fantastic Christmas presents, but I suggest you act quickly if you are interested in these deals. Amazon is describing these as LIMITED TIME DEALS so these prices will not be around for long!

I ♥ My Fire!
