It’s high time to double-check if your children have everything they need to start the new school year without worry.
Amazon has already opened Back-to-School Essentials store, where you can explore supplies by grade. Many of the featured items are offered at lowered prices.
Among the highlighted back-to-school sections are backpacks, apparel & shoes, lunch items, and electronics.
Below, we’ll guide you through all the deals on Amazon’s own devices: Fire tablets and Kindle e-readers.
Back-to-school Amazon Fire deals
At the beginning of August, only the Kids Editions were discounted, but since August 20, all the 2017 Fire tablets are offered at reduced prices:
- Save $10 on Fire 7 – the newest-generation 7-inch tablet from Amazon is thinner and lighter than its predecessor, has a slightly better display, and is available in four bright and trendy colors. It’s regular price is very low, it’s only
$49.99, but right now you can save $10 (20%), and get it for $$39.99,
- Save $20 on Fire HD 8 – the bigger, 8-inch Fire hasn’t changed much since it was introduced in 2015, but the 2017 has a regular price of
$79.99– which was further slashed by $20 in a back-to-school promotion. Fire HD 8 can be now grabbed for $59.99, and you keep in your wallet as much as 25% of its list price,
- Save $20 on Fire 7 Kids Edition – this special edition includes the 2017 Fire 7, a heavy-duty case perfect for kids (available in three colors: Blue, Pink, and Yellow), a 2-year worry-free guarantee, and 1 year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited. Your price is $79.99, down 20% from
- Save $30 on Fire HD 8 Kids Edition – again, the Fire tablet plus kid-prof case plus 2-year guarantee plus 1 year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited. The price has been slashed 23%, by $30, so that you can buy the device for $99.99 instead of
$129.99. You can pick up one of the three colors of the case: Yello, Blue, and Pink.
Are these Amazon Fire deals attractive? Not as much as during Prime Day 2017, when the subscribers of Amazon’s multi-benefit program enjoyed price cuts by $10 more attractive than now.
If you are considering getting the bundle, you can get further savings:
- Save $35 on Fire 7 Kids Edition Essentials Bundle – this bundle is a complete solution for a worry-free usage. Besides the tablet and the case, you will get Nupro Kids Zipper Sleeve (in either Blue or Pink) worth $19.99, and the $12.99 screen protector. The list price of the bundle is
$132.97, but in August you pay $97.97. The total saving is $35 – $20 on the tablet and extra $15 on the bundle,
- Save $45 on Fire HD 8 Kids Essentials Bundle – just like in the smaller Fire, besides the tablet the bundle includes Nupro Sleeve and screen protector. If you decide to buy it in August, you will save as much as $45 – $30 on the Fire for Kids Edition, and extra $15 on the bundle. The end back-to-school price is $117.97 (
Back-to-school Kindle deals
Since August 20, there is a “regular” deal offer on Kindle e-readers. “Regular” means the prices are slashed for all models except Oasis.
Here is what you can save in limited-time offers that will most probably last until the end of August 2017.
- Save $20 on the basic Kindle – the entry-level Kindle can be bought now at the price lowered by $20, to $59.99 (
$79.99). If you are willing to buy the e-reader for your children, it’s a good deal, but if you can wait until the end of the year, the Black Friday will most probably draw the price down to $49.99,
- Save $20 on Kindle Paperwhite – the same saving can be achieved when you decide to buy the front-lighted Kindle. This model is better than the basic Kindle, as you – or your children – can read on it in the evening in poor light. Until the end of August, you’ll pay $99.99 instead of
- Save $20 on Kindle Voyage – there is also the deal on the top-shelf Kindle model (if you really need this one). The deal price is set at $179.99, and you save $20,
- Save $25 on Kindle for Kids Bundle – the bundle includes the latest-generation basic Kindle model (the one without the front-lighted display), 2-year worry-free guarantee, and a durable cover in one of five colors: Black, Blue, Green, Pink, or Purple. You can get it for $99.99 instead of paying the full price of
- Save $20 on Kindle Paperwhite Essentials Bundle – Kindle Paperwhite is bundled with Amazon’s original leather cover and power charger, and you can take advantage of the price cut that makes it available for $159.97 instead of
$179.97. It’s not the most attractive deals on this bundle – you can expect the price cut by even $50 on Prime Day or Black Friday / Cyber Monday.
Besides the bundles, you can get even $35 in a trade-in Kindle offer.
How to save $35 on replacing the old Kindle with the new one? Simply go to Kindle trade-in page, select your current Kindle model and describe its condition, ship it to Amazon for free, and get a gift card and $20 bonus towards the purchase of the new model.
Obviously, the price cuts on Fire and Kindle devices are not the only ones. Back-to-schools 2017 deals section includes offers on apparel, office supplies, cell phones and accessories, as well as art & crafts.
