Remember the Mother’s Day sale Amazon ran on tablets and such? Well, it’s doing it again. There are a whole passel of sales on for the impending Father’s Day. Most notably, the $50 7” Fire tablet is now $40—or you can get the 16 GB version for $60 instead of its usual $70. (That’s including Special Offers, of course.) By the same token, you can get the basic Kindle for $60 instead of the usual $80.

Here’s a listing of some of the more notable sale items.

Fire tablets

Kindle eReaders

Fire TV
