Do you like the sound of a $40 tablet? I sure do. I mean we're definitely not talking about a high-end sing-all be-all tablet here, but it's a tablet nonetheless and it does what tablets do, like browse the web and run some games and play some videos and display some books. If this sounds exactly like what you're looking for in a tablet, read on.

Amazon is discounting its Fire 7" tablet to $39.99. The original price wasn't a lot more, at $49.99, but $10 off are $10 you can use to buy a book or two, or a game or two, or a cover. That's the version of the tablet with Special Offers, which are basically ads that display on your screensaver. The one that doesn't show this sponsored content is also down $10, from $64.99 to $54.99.

As a reminder, the Fire 7" has a 1024x600 display, 8GB of internal storage, a quad-core 1.3GHz processor, Wi-Fi, and runs Fire OS 5 with up to 7 hours of battery life. That's enough for a disposable tablet that you keep around the kitchen or living room, or give to your kids or non-techie family members.

There's no telling how long the discount will be valid for so check your pocket fast and make up your mind about those $40 burning a hole in it. The Fire 7" will ship for free from Amazon so you don't have to worry about adding that cost to your bill.
