Amazon’s celebrated tablet family is an affordable way to stream. Unlike most tablets, you won’t have to mortgage the house just to get one.

Despite being a cheaper alternative to most tablets on the market, you don’t have to cut corners on performance. There’s a model to suit every multimedia need, from YouTube surfing to magazine reading, and yes, even gaming. The amount of savings just depends on how much (and how often) you’re using it.

Enjoy access to millions of TV shows, songs, Kindle eBooks, apps and games including Netflix, Facebook, HBO, Spotify, and countless others. You can even download movies to watch later when you’re away from a Wi-Fi signal.

The Amazon Fire Tablet sale is only available through June 16, so don’t sleep on it. Not sure which tablet to buy? We got you covered.

Good for: Streamers and travelers

Fire HD 8 has the strength, durability, and portability of the Fire 7, but it’s far more powerful. With a vibrant eight-inch display, 1.5 GB of ram, and Dolby Audio, this does everything a great tablet does, only better. Stream videos and games in glorious HD at speeds 50% faster than Fire 7. Plus, it will run for up to 12 hours on a single charge, so it’s dependable on plane flights and waiting rooms.

Good for: Roving multi-media fiends

Samsung Galaxy and iPad fans can head for the hills: there’s a new tablet in town, available at a fraction of the price of the big boys. The fat 10-inch screen makes the display almost as big as a small laptop screen. And because it’s got two times the ram of typical Fire tablets, movies, games, and virtually all media will stream lightning fast. Plus, the storage starts at 32 GB, which will let pop culture fiends amass a massive media library. Plus, it offers access to hands-free Alexa, which lets you command all your Amazon devices from your tablet. It’s the ideal machine for the perpetually online, who proudly refuse to never log off.
