'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards.

Among thousands of cut-price appliances, gadgets, toys, and tech, Target is offering an Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet for only $44 as part of the firm's Deal Days sales event.

The Amazon Fire HD 8 Tablet typically retails for $89. However, you can purchase the device for $44, saving you $45 (or 50% off) for a limited time. 

This Fire tablet model comes with an 8" HD display, 2.0 GHz quad-core processor, 32GB storage (up to 1TB with a microSD card, not included), 2GB RAM, and an integrated Alexa assistant. Both a front and rear-facing camera are included and you can expect up to 12 hours of battery life on a single charge. 

In addition, if you're looking for a child-friendly alternative, Target has also cut the price of the Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet (32GB). The 8" tablet would normally cost you $139, but until the sale ends, you can pick one up for $69.

The Target Deal Days 2022 sale started on October 6 and will carry on until Saturday, October 8. The sale is described as three days of "early Black Friday deals," with discounts of up to 50% available on technology, furniture, kitchen appliances, toys, and clothing.  

Shoppers may also be awarded gift cards for their purchases. The sale is taking place in-store and online, and if customers use their Target RedCard, they can also take a further 5% off sales items. 

Target's sale event comes a few days before Amazon's Prime Early Access Sale, due to begin on October 11. While some deals are already available -- including cut-price Kindle e-readers -- you can expect discounts of up to 70% on Amazon devices, gadgets, TVs, and more.
