Wirecutter's best deals: Save $30 on an NVIDIA Shield TV
From Engadget - December 14, 2017

Amazon Fire HD 8

Street Price: $80; Deal Price: $50

This deal matches the previous low price we have seen for our budget pick Android tablet. We only just saw this $50 low price during Black Friday sales, so this is a great time to pick up this tablet at a discount. With the holidays coming, this is a nice option while it lasts.

The Amazon Fire HD 8 is our budget pick in our guide to the best Android tablets. Ryan Whitwam wrote, "If you want a cheap tablet for watching videos, reading, or browsing the Web, Amazon's Fire HD 8 tablet is great. It does not have access to the Google Play Store or any of Google's apps, but it costs just $80 and makes it easy to access Amazon content (especially for Prime members). Amazon's Fire OS (based on Android) runs very well on the tablet, and the Fire HD 8 offers better battery life than the ZenPad or Tab S3. The display is only 1280800, but that's fine for a budget media tablet. The Fire HD 8 also has more-extensive parental controls than other tablets, making it a great family device. The selection of apps in Amazon's app store is small compared with what you can get via Google Play, but it includes most popular non-Google apps."

Puro BT2200 Kids Headphones

Street Price: $100; Deal Price: $75 w/ code HOLLY25!

If you are in the market for headphones for your young one, this is a great opportunity to pick some up at the best price we have seen. When you use code HOLLY25! in cart, it drops the price of the Puro BT2200 headphones from their normal price of $100 down to $75. This code deal beats the $80 pricing that we have seen on and off since the run-up to Black Friday, can be applied to any of the 4 available colors, and can be applied to multiple sets of headphones. The code is valid thru 12/21.

The Puro BT2200 Kids Headphones are our top pick in our guide to the best kids headphones. Lauren Dragan and Brent Butterworth wrote, "The Puro BT2200 is our pick because not only do these headphones remain within safe listening levels when used properly, but they were also the top pick of all our kid panelists, which means your little ones will be more likely to use them. The Bluetooth wireless connectiondone correctly heremeans that the Puro pair will play at the correct levels, whatever source the child uses it with. The wireless design is also handy for avoiding tangles, a favorite feature of our big-kid panelists. The size and weight fit kids from 2 to 11 years comfortably, so you can buy these headphones once and they will grow with your child, and they are sturdy enough that they should last a long time, too."
