Prime Day is Here! Great Deals on Fire Tablets

Hello Fire Fans and Friends!

The day we've all been waiting for is finally here - and there are some great deals on Fire tablets to be had.

For those who subscribe to Amazon Prime, today (and tomorrow so that's Oct 13th and 14th) is Amazon Prime Day. Which means their Fire tablets, plus hundreds of other items, are on sale!

If you're not an Amazon Prime subscriber you can join today! There are LOTS of benefits, most of which are explained in my article all about Amazon Prime.

Some of the Prime offers are excellent, but the best of all has to be the reduction on the Fire HD 10". At just $79.99 it's at one of the lowest prices I've ever seen - an absolute bargain for such a great tablet!

Here's what else is on offer:

SALE PRICES FOR PRIME MEMBERS

Should I Buy a Fire Tablet now, or wait for Black Friday?

This is a good question - should you splurge now or wait for an even better deal?

Well, I can't make any promises and Amazon always plays its cards close to its chest. But Amazon tends to use Prime Day to promote its own-brand, tech-related items more than any other sale throughout the year. So it's possible you may not see such great reductions on Fire tablets in November.

If you love shopping for a good deal (and who doesn't?) Amazon Prime Day is the perfect time to buy that perfect item you've been waiting for. Be sure to check out all the great deals going on right now!

Prime Day is Coming - But You Can Grab Bargains Now!

Like just about everything else this year, Amazon Prime Day is a little different!

Usually held in July, Amazon's Prime Day for 2020 will start on October 13 at 12:00 am PT/ 3:00 am ET and end on Wednesday October 14 at 12:00 am PT/ 3:00 am ET (OK, so that's 2 days - but I'm not complaining!).

Prime Day is the biggest shopping event of the year and a GREAT time to buy Fire tablets and accessories as gifts for friends and family (thinking ahead to Christmas here) - or to simply upgrade to the new 2020 Fires you've been dying to get your hands on.

Remember - you have to be a Prime member to take advantage of all these deals.

An Amazon Prime membership is worth having anyway - but even more so when Prime Day is under a week away.

Amazon Music HD gives you a high-quality streaming experience, reducing problems like audio stutter and drop-outs.

This offer is for new subscribers only. When your free trial runs out, the service is charged at $14.99 per month (or $12.99 per month if you're a Prime member - learn more about Prime here).

You can cancel at any time, including before your first payment

Sign up for your 90 day free trial of Amazon Music Unlimited HD today

FreeTime is now Amazon Kids

If your kids love tech, then you're probably already familiar with Amazon FreeTime, the service launched in 2012 to help parents monitor their children's usage.

In an attempt to more accurately describe what the service does, Amazon has changed the name of FreeTime to Amazon Kids (which makes a lot more sense!).

FreeTime Unlimited will now be called Amazon Kids Plus.

Like FreeTime, the basic Amazon Kids service remains free to use.

Amazon Kids Plus is available for a $4.99 monthly subscription ($2.99 per month for Prime members) and gives kids access to thousands of kid-friendly books, movies, TV shows, educational apps, Audible books, and games, plus ad-free radio stations and playlists and Audible books.

You can currently try out Amazon Kids Plus for 3 months for just $0.99

How do I Replace the Battery or Charging Port an a Fire Tablet?

This is a question I have received several times recently, because the Fire's charging port or battery is sometimes the first thing to malfunction when the tablet seems fine in every other way.

Unfortunately, there's not an easy way to replace a battery in a Fire. These tablets are not like a remote control or child's electronic toy where you can remove a screw, take out the battery, and put in a new one. Amazon just doesn't provide access to the battery compartment.

First, I would recommend contacting Amazon Support directly to see what they can do. It's possible they have some fixes or solutions that might work.

Second, perhaps a mobile device repair business might be able to fix your battery or charging port.

**WARNING!** Be aware that if you or someone else opens up your tablet to access the electronic insides it will void any warranty still on the device. Of course, if you have no warranty and don't want to buy a new tablet, maybe going this route will work for you.

A final thing to consider is investing in the Show Mode Charging Dock (if it's compatible with your Fire). I have now heard from 2 visitors to this site who found that the Dock managed to resurrect their tablets from the 'dead'.

Using the dock is also a great way to protect the fragile charging port from damage - I use one myself, as I find the wire-free, magnetic method or charging my Fire so much easier!

Learn more about the Show Mode Charging Dock

Please do let me know if you've had any success with getting either the battery or charging port repaired on your device.

Sale on Fire Tablets for Mother's Day (US)

With Mother's Day just days away on May 10th, Amazon has slashed prices on its Fire tablets and on a few other devices too.

The discounts are great and bring many devices close to Black Friday prices, but something to be aware of is that shipping times have been affected by COVID 19. This means that there is no guarantee you will receive your order in time for Mother's Day itself.

But if you're willing to take the risk and mom won't mind receiving her gift a little late, then it's a good time to grab a bargain!

Here's the breakdown:

(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" - $20 OFF = ONLY $59.99
    (Colors: black, blue, yellow, red)
  • Fire 7" - $10 OFF = ONLY $39.99
    (black, blue, plum, sage)
  • Fire HD 10" - $40 OFF = ONLY $109.99
    (Colors: black, blue, plum, white)
  • Echo Dot 3rd Generation - $20 OFF = ONLY $29.99
    (Covers: grey, plum, black)

HURRY! If you want to treat mom - or even if you've been thinking of upgrading - these deals are available NOW and may only run while supplies last.

Free Entertainment on Your Fire Tablet (US only)

Amazon has announced on its blog a great new service for all those of us lucky enough to have either a Fire Tablet or Fire TV.

The service is called #AtHome and it's designed to inform, educate and entertain us in the comfort of our own homes (where we are all spending quite a bit more time these days!).

Laugh #AtHome: Your favorite comedy shows

Explore #AtHome: A range of great travel shows, including Anthony Bourdain's Parts Unknown and Man vs Wild

Learn and play: Apps and experiences for the whole family to learn new skills!

Home design: Lots of inspiration for those projects that you may now find yourself with the time to accomplish!
