TODO alt text

Amazon has announced some great Back to School offers today including up to £30 savings on its range of Fire Kids Edition Tablets

Plus there's a great offer for Amazon Prime Student - you get six months free including  access to Amazon Tickets pre-sales and Prime Live Events, Prime Reading and even AWS cloud storage.

The Fire 7 Kids Edition Tablet will be available for £79.99 (usual RRP: £99.99 – saving £20) 

The Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet will be available for £99.99 (usual RRP: £129.99 – saving £30) 

The included Fire for Kids Unlimited offers thousands of age-appropriate books, videos, educational apps, and games, plus access to tens of thousands of hand-curated websites and YouTube videos. There's also a child-proof case, and a 2-year worry-free guarantee.

It's worth noting that although these devices are all very reasonably priced, they do come into their own with the addition of Amazon Prime, which costs £79 per year and gives access to movie and TV streaming and a decent but slightly limited selection of music, as well as next-day delivery on your Amazon shopping.

What's the deal with Amazon Prime Student?

Following the six-month trial, Amazon Prime Student members can continue their membership for £39 per year – half the cost of an annual Amazon Prime membership. Here's what Amazon says you get: 

  • Unlimited One-Day Delivery on millions of eligible items including Same-Day delivery in selected post-codes
  • Unlimited access to award-winning movies and TV episodes with Prime Video
  • Access to more than two million songs and hundreds of ad-free Prime Playlists and Prime Stations with Prime Music
