The first-generation version of Amazon's Kindle Fire is on sale for $99, down from $159. Acer's Iconia Tab A200 is available for $100 off the regular price, while an older Asus tablet is being sold at an $80 discount.

Buyers looking for an iPad Mini or fourth-generation iPad will find a few deals elsewhere.

Walmart is offering the the 16GB Wi-Fi version of the Mini for $299, a $30 discount off the regular price. MacMall is selling a variety of iPad Mini and iPad 4 models for as much as $40 off the retail price.

I've been thinking of getting my mom an iPad Mini for Mother's Day (shhh, don't tell her). So this may be a good opportunity to scoop one up.
