I bit on the deal @ Amazon and traded in my 2017 (7th Gen) HD10 to get $30 credited to my Gift Card balance and 20% off the new tablet, with 5 monthly payments too. While reviews generally agree it is not must-have upgrade, the features that helped my decision were: 1. faster processor, 2. USB-C charging and 3. my awesome Fintie Tuatara Magic Ring case will fit the new HD 10!

I can't say enough good things about this case: built-in screen protector, ruggedized protection, handle on back can swivel and open to any angle needed to prop the tablet for comfortable viewing and can be used to carry the thing around. Those who like the light streamlined design of the tablet will probably not like this chunky case or its $40 price tag, but it works for me. And, the Navy color will match the Twilight Blue HD10 beautifully! (Not that the the tablet color will be visible anyway... but I'LL KNOW) Link
So you can get the trade-in 20% off the $100 price? I should see if they'll take my HDX.

I should think so; go to the item you'd like to get and click on the button "Upgrade and save with Trade-in" - this will show eligible devices registered to your Amazon account. I think other tablets may also be eligible, and they don't even have to be working, according to comments I've seen. Older items may only qualify for a $5 or $10 gift card, but it's the 20% discount that really matters. And yes, it is applied to the current sale price so if you are keen - jump on it soon!

I got the gift card credit and 20% discount emails immediately, and I have until Feb 11 (3 weeks) to send in the trade-in item. The credit and discount may be reversed if your trade-in item is eventually found to be unacceptable, but that should be well within the return window if the deal does not work for you.

**EDIT** The omniscient tubemonkey beat me to a quick answer... **/EDIT**

I would make sure the trade-in was properly processed and you receive the gift card credit (if applicable) and 20% discount email and the shipping label first (!), then deregister and factory reset your device. I asked about and was told to send "with all accessories" so I am including the cable and wall charger that came with my tablet. I removed my case and *almost* forgot to remove my 128GB MicroSD card, wow I sure would have regretted losing that...

Enjoy your new Fire HD10!

Thanks - it's on order, $75 + tax - traded my 2013 Fire HD 8.9. I haven't used it for years but it's in brand new condition, charged it up last night and it'd holding 100%. I forgot about the charger that came with it but I have one of the old Powerfast chargers I can send back with it.

Edit> Actually I found the original packaging and it apparently didn't include a charger - the instructions recommend buying the Powerfast charger separately. It surprises me that Amazon lets you stack the 20% discount on top of the 33% discounted sale price.

You're welcome! Yes, it's a crazy-good deal and I couldn't resist. I recall getting a similar discounted deal and 5 interest-free monthly payments when I bought the 2017 HD10 for something like $90, so this time around it's even better. I also have a 2013 Fire HD 8.9 in a cupboard somewhere, enjoyed the superb screen at the time until it was replaced by a new shiny toy (story of my gadget-filled life).

Unfortunately Amazon abandoned the HD 8.9 shortly after it came out, so it doesn't run many apps (and I assume is based on a very old Android flavor).

It was also uncomfortably heavy by today's standards.

My first tablet. I loved it, but soon upgraded to iPads and haven’t used it in years.

MLK and Mother's Day tend to be when Kindles are cheapest apart from Prime Day and Black Friday/holidays.
