I went thru the trade in offer as my kid has an old fire tablet and received a 10$ gift card and 20% off a new tablet so got this and a screen protector for $88.
Thanks OP

I checked Honey, and this regularly sells for its MSRP of $139. Did Amazon announce $99 as the new price or is this a limited promotion leading up to their annual Amazon Day in July sale? And what's the odds this sells for even less on Amazon Day, or later in the year on Black Friday?

Personally, I am in no rush and I can wait until Black Friday. I bought my 6-year-old a Fire Tablet for the holidays, and she likes it -- except for the fact that she can't play Minecraft or access YouTube Kids. I am interested in replacing it come December to get another year of Freetime (because the subscription to Freetime is almost as expensive as the tablet on Black Friday).

There are ways to get youtube kids on these. I did it on the fire 7 for my son. Will do it again on this new one when it arrives.
I dont have the url but google it, there are youtube videos

Yes, there is a way to install it and the entire Play Store, but only on the parent side of the tablet. Older versions of the OS and launcher allowed users to share Play Store installs on the kids view, but sometime late last year an update patched it. I found one work around but it wasn't kid friendly. I haven't looked in almost 6 months and to be honest my daughter hasn't complained about missing YouTube Kids any more.

Yes you are right but I added some apps to increase security and only allow him to use certain apps and etc in the parent side. It works for us.

Is there an end date on this sale or a way to expedite a trade in? Decided to trade in kid's old tablet for 20% off this one but it looks like I don't get credit until they complete the trade in, which will likely take days?

I feel that a 10" tablet is way better for a kid. My 7 year old does Alexia Pro 5, Raz Kids, zoom and other school apps on hers. We also have a 8" and I feel the 8" tablet is just to small to function as a good school tablet. Before we got the Fire 10, she used our laptop for school work, when we got her the fire 10 her productivity greatly increased (she was always a little slow with the mouse).

We also read comics and graphic novels on the 10" tablet... again, I feel it is better on a 10", and so does almost everyone else (read on line).

An 8" tablet shines for reading books (not comics or graphic novels), portability (even though a 10" is also still portable) and using it in be. I feel a 8" is more suited to an adult then a kid. I have a Hauwei M5 8" and I switch between the fire 10 and the M5, while my daughter uses the Fire 10 for almost everything except sometimes she uses the 8" to watch youtube.

This is just IMHO.

To get the 20% off instantly, you need to trade in a Fire Tablet. Many other people have done a "fake" trade in to get the 20% off coupon and from past deals, people who did this fake trade in have said that Amazon went after them for the trade in value they receive but they were still able to take advantage of the 20% off.
