There's not long to go now in this year's Amazon Prime Day deals event, so you better get a move on if you've not started filling your basket with goodies.

And if you've fancied getting yourself a new tablet for a while for casual web browsing and watching a bit of Netflix or Prime Video, then the Fire tablets are certainly worth a look. 

And seeing as the cheapest Fire tablet, the Fire 7, is $29.99/£29.99 today, it'll come as no surprise that they're not exactly packing the power of Apple's super popular iPads. But hey, $30 wouldn't even get you an official cover case for an iPad from Apple. If you fancy seeing what Apple is up to today though, we've rounded up the best Amazon Prime Day iPad deals.

Sign up for Prime Day

You'll need to be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of Prime Day deals. You can sign up for a free trial, which will see you through Prime Day and which you can cancel after 30 days.

The Fire series is the most popular series of budget tablets in the world though, and the Fire HD 8 model is a solid all-rounder for sure. If you have children, the Kids Editions are ideal as they have built-in online protection features along with lots of free apps for fun and learning. Plus they come in a solid rubber casing with a two-year no questions asked return and replace warranty - just don't tell the kids that. 

The great news is that we're seeing all-time low prices in both dollars and pounds on every fire tablet, but you'll have to hurry up in the UK as Prime Day is almost over there. And look sharp US readers as you don't have much longer.
