Bestbuy.ca also has these same prices.
I happen to have a $30 gift card there and was able to get the 32Gb version for $133 tax / shipping incl.

The email signup takes about 10 minutes to receive $10 off code

$134.99 is about as good as it gets for Canada lol

Roblox plays just fine on the 10" previous generation with 32GB. There is always something better but for the price this one is just fine. I didn't watch the video but 8" Amazon tablets are less powerful, in case they are featured in the video.

Thanks OP!

Bought the HD 10 kids Edition for $220ish all in.

The email sign up link didn't work, ended up cutting out the referral part of the URL and it worked.

$144.99 ATL.

It's a buy, look for Staples at the same price with $10 coupon off $100 new mailing list coupon, potentially at $134.99.

Mailing List Registration for Coupon:
www.staples.ca/a/content/email

Confirmed, net $10 coupon, it's down to $134.99.

Game on, gentlemen.

Life couldn't be easier with this Toolbox. This Fire HD has the greatest Android tablet community support by far.

Decent gaming tablet, which I would've doubted.

Minecraft - Smooth up to 12 blocks.
PUBG - 30+ FPS at Low
Genshin Impact - Intermittent Choppiness
Dreamcast Emulator - 60 FPS Locked
N64 Emulator - Pretty Smooth

(Aspect Ratio is off due to resizing, actual tablet is wider.)

That is to say, this is the same case as the Amazon Productivity bundle case.

Two Step Purchase
1) Buy the Amazon Fire HD 10 from Staples.ca for $149.99 CAD after coupon.
2) Buy the Amazon OEM Keyboard Case for $62.99 CAD.

Separate Total Purchase Cost: $212.98 CAD + HST

Versus

Productivity Bundle Cost: $279.98 CAD + HST

Savings: $67.00 CAD + HST

And yes, the separate keyboard is Prime fulfilled with their bulletproof return policy.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Can the Fire HD 10 cast Netflix to a Chromecast-connected TV?

Yes, with a few steps.

Sideload Google Play store, one way is by installing Google Services through the Fire Toolbox above, follow the video instructions. Another way is by downloading the Google Play store directly from APKMirror (Google the website).

Download the Google Play version of Netflix and install, now you can cast.

Can this do everything a regular tablet can do?

Yes, essentially. You must use the Fire Toolbox linked above and follow the video, but the result is essentially an open and freely-usable tablet. It's not rooted, but for most functions, that's not required.

Can this serve as a laptop replacement?

Yes, it can. Buy the Fire HD 10 from Staples for $134.99 and the Amazon Fintie OEM Keyboard case for $62.99, and you have a basic laptop replacement for $197.98 CAD. You can't find that level of functionality and flexibility on a Chromebook near that price point.

Add a bluetooth or dongled USB mouse and you have the full laptop replacement experience.

134$ at staples is a good price.
I paid 125$ for the 2019 model 2 years ago and for the.price it's a great everyday tablet as long as you clean up the amazon crap with FireToolbox.

Good screen, snappy operation, ok storage. Sadly no casting capability out of the box buy it's understandable for the price.
