Amazon offers some of the best cheap tablets on the market, so it's a big deal when they go on sale. These tablet deals start from just $34, which is less than you'd pay for a family take-out.

While stock lasts, Amazon is offering up to 50% off a range of Fire tablets (opens in new tab), and up to 50% off Kids Fire tablets (opens in new tab), too. These are some of the best Amazon deals we've seen all year.

With so many great tablets on sale, it can be hard to choose which one you like best — luckily, we've tried them all and can tell you the answer if you're asking yourself which Fire tablet you should buy.

To sum it up, the Fire 7 tablet offers the best value for money. While it can't beat an iPad in terms of specs, this uber-cheap tablet does the job and is perfect for families. Meanwhile, the Fire HD 8 Plus offers better performance and a HD screen, so opt for this tablet if you want to stream videos in high quality or play some games.

If you're purchasing a tablet for a little one, the Kids edition tablets offer the ability to set parental controls and come with a free one-year subscription to Amazon Kids+ that will give your child access to apps, games, books and videos. You'll also get a bumper case that'll protect the tablet if it falls, and a 2-year worry free guarantee.

All in all, Amazon's Fire line are some of the best tablets on the market when it comes to value for money, so we highly recommend picking one up now they're on sale.
