To put things into perspective, this bundle is so coveted that almost 90,000 fans have stepped up to sing its praises, with about 70,000 of them giving this duo a glowing five-star rating. “Boots up fast, smooth screen movement, long battery charge, ideal for travel,” as one fan encapsulated it.
Here’s a breakdown of what makes the Fire HD 8 “so much better than last generation” — and why the Blink Mini Camera just sweetens the deal.
First of all, fans are loving that the Fire HD has a large 8-inch screen, and that everything you see on it is “crisp and sharp.” Movies, videos, games — no matter what you choose to view, it shows up vibrant on this fast, responsive display. Stream Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+ and Showtime or take your Zoom meetings on this robust tablet. If you want interrupted, distraction-free gaming, just switch to Game Mode.
This thing has an incredible battery life, too — you can read ebooks, surf the web, stream podcasts and more for up to 12 hours on a charge. And when the tablet needs to be juiced up again, use the included USB-C cord to charge it fully in less than five hours. It’ll be up and running again before you know it.
Fans are thrilled that they decided to invest in this tablet. One wrote: “My son talked me into ordering the new Fire HD 8 and my life has changed. The size of my Fire HD 8 is much like a paperback book so I find it comfortable to hold. The battery life is amazing and it charges very quickly when I need to charge it. I also love the way you can change the screen to varying comfortable intensities of light and background color. Plus....I love that I can adjust the font and the size of the font to one that suits me best.”
And don’t forget your Blink Mini Camera, a cool gadget in its own right that gives you home security and peace of mind thanks to superior motion detection. Install this smart gadget inside or outside your home to monitor activity 24 hours a day and get alerts on your smartphone whenever the camera senses activity (even if it’s just the mailman).
The Blink Mini has live view and two-way audio features, too, which let you see and speak with people in the home, visitors — you can even comfort pets and babies from far away.
The Fire HD 8 and Blink Mini Camera Bundle is a whopping 40 percent off — or $50 off — when you choose the 32-gig tablet for $75 instead of $125. If you’d prefer more storage — 64 gigs to be exact — you still score a discount of $50 off, making it $105 instead of $155.
The Fire HD 8 is discounted in four colors, too — choose from white, black, plum or twilight blue to accompany your white Blink Mini Camera. The tablet included in this bundle is ad-supported, which basically means you’ll see ads on the devices home screen when it’s locked, but nothing will interrupt your viewing or listening experience.
You can even grab this incredible duo over at Best Buy right now for as little as $75 and enjoy entertainment and home security while saving big bucks in the process.
