Get The Fire HD 8 With Free Blink Mini For $75 (Today Only)

Amazon's latest Deal of the Day offers a sweet smart home bundle for less than $100.


If you've ever visited Amazon's daily deals page, you'll know that discounts on the company's own smart devices, like the Echo and Kindle, tend to pop up more often than any other product. However, you can find a particularly nice bundle on sale for today only: You can get the Fire HD 8 (32GB) tablet with a Blink Mini camera for just $75 today, down from the list price of $125. The Fire HD 8 tablet goes for $90 on its own, and a Blink Mini sells for $28 right now. Note that the same bundle offer is available in Best Buy's daily sale as well.

The Fire HD 8 is an excellent tablet for general use, whether you're reading, watching videos, or browsing social media. Featuring up to 12 hours of battery life, the Fire HD 8 naturally comes with Alexa built in so you can play music, check the weather, place phone calls, and more using just your voice. And, of course, you can play games on it as well, which is particularly nice when you're on the go.

The Blink Mini is Amazon's plug-in 1080p indoor security camera that has motion detection and two-way audio, letting you monitor what's going on in your home via an app. It even has night vision to give you a clear image when the lights are off. And if you've got pets at home, it's a good way to check in on them while you're gone. You can also use the Fire HD tablet to see the security camera feed, so this pair works nicely together.

Like all Amazon Deals of the Day, this offer ends around 12 AM PT / 3 AM ET tonight, when it'll be replaced by tomorrow's offers. Of course, with Amazon Prime Day 2021 coming up in the next few months, we expect even more steep markdowns on Amazon-branded smart devices in the near future.

In the meantime, be sure to check out more of today's best deals, including the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War cross-gen bundle for $49 and lightly used PS5 DualSense controllers for $44.22. There's also a major collectibles sale at GameStop that slashes 10% off when you spend $60 and 20% off when you spend $100, spanning more than 10,000 eligible products.
