8 Amazon Gifts That Are on Sale & Can Still Arrive Before Christmas

  • MORE

Christmas Eve is almost here and you're still short a few gifts. You could head to a brick-and-mortar store, but at this point they're swamped with last-minute shoppers who will fight you to the finish for whatever deals are left. Fortunately, all hope is not lost.

If you're an Amazon Prime member living in one of these 29 cities, you can still order certain gifts up until Christmas Eve at noon (local time) and Amazon will offer same-day delivery for free. Below we've rounded up eight picks with prices ranging from $40 to $140.

Get $10 off the Fire Tablet 7-inch

Regular Price: $49.99
Sale Price: $39.99

Why It's a Good Deal: Why settle for an off-brand Android slate when the most affordable tablet in Amazon's lineup only costs $40. It's not the fastest tablet in the market — performance is a bit sluggish and the battery only lasts 6.5 hours — but at this price, it's hard to complain. Plus, it gives you access to Amazon's ever-expanding universe of multimedia content and the company's budget-friendly Underground App Store.

Get access to Alexa for just $40

Regular Price: $49.99
Sale Price: $39.99

Why It's a Good Deal: The Echo Dot is one of the least-expensive ways to give your home a digital makeover. It was designed with home stereos in mind, but it can also work without an additional speaker. If you know someone with an outdated stereo system, this hockey puck-shaped device is a great way to modernize their system on the cheap. Although it's currently not in stock, we recommend checking Amazon's product page frequently as Amazon may unexpectedly replenish it. Alternatively, you can buy it now and have it shipped to your recipient when it's back in stock.

Save $20 on the Fire HD 8

Regular Price: $89.99
Sale Price: $69.99

Why It's a Good Deal: The 2016 Fire HD 8 was a great deal when it first came out and now, with its discounted price, it's an even bigger bargain. Storage has gotten a bump to 16GB and the tablet now comes with Alexa, Amazon's digital assistant. It offers respectable performance and its battery went on for 11 hours and 19 minutes in our tests.    

Take $10 off the Fire Kids Edition Tablet

Regular Price: $99.99
Sale Price: $89.99

Why It's a Good Deal: Amazon knows how delicate tablets can be and, because of that, its bundled a 2-year guarantee with its 7-inch Fire Kids Edition tablet. If your child breaks it, simply return it and Amazon will send you a new one. As impressive as that is, the tablet also comes with best-in-class parental controls and a year's access to Amazon FreeTime Unlimited content — a kid-friendly content service.

Get the travel-friendly Amazon Tap for $90

Regular Price: $129.99
Sale Price: $89.99

Why It's a Good Deal: The Tap is the portable version of Amazon's Echo, with the exception that the Tap requires you to press a button to communicate with Alexa. Otherwise, it natively supports Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Prime Music, and a host of other services like its big brother the Echo.

Get the top-tier Kindle Paperwhite for $100

Regular Price: $119.99
Sale Price: $99.99

Why It's a Good Deal: Unlike the other Kindles, the top-tier Kindle Paperwhite rarely receives any discounts. However, you can currently snag one for the holidays for just $100. The Editors' Choice e-reader has a sharp 300-pixel screen, built-in adjustable light, and an improved layout that makes books easier than ever to read e-books. 

Save $40 on Amazon's Best-Selling Echo Speaker

Regular Price: $179.99
Sale Price: $139.99

Why It's a Good Deal: The Echo is Amazon's premier smart home device designed to help you shop, catch up on the day's news, and control other compatible smart home devices. Although it's currently not in stock, we recommend checking Amazon's product page frequently as the company may unexpectedly replenish stock. Alternatively, you can buy it now and have it shipped to your recipient when it's back in stock.

Get the Fire HD 10 Tablet for $200

Sale Price: $199.99

Why It's a Good Deal: The Fire HD 10 is one of the most affordable oversized tablets you'll find on the market. It uses a wide 16:10 format, which is better for watching movies and consuming content. Its dual speakers deliver excellent sound and its quad-core CPU works well when doing multiple tasks.
