Amazon is having a sale on its hardware devices right now, dropping prices on useful pieces of tech like Echos, Fire tablets, and Fire TV. We have a rundown of all the devices you can save money on, so let’s dive in.
Fire TV Stick for $29.99
If you want to connect your TV to streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, HBO Now, or CBS All Access, this is an easy and cheap way to do it. The 4K version can deliver 4K content as well.
Fire HD 10 Tablet for $99
As you can probably tell from the price, this is a budget tablet. But if you just want to do basic tasks like streaming video and social media, this Fire HD 10 will suit you just fine. And at $99, the price is right.
Echo for $79.99
This is hands-down my favorite new device of the past few years, one that has had more impact on my day-to-day life than any other. When I want to listen to a song that’s stuck in my head, I ask Alexa. When we run out of milk, I tell her to add it to the list. I ask about the weather, I listen to NPR, I ask basic math questions (I majored in English). If you don’t have an Echo, I can’t recommend one hightly enough.
Fire TV Recast for $189.99
Want to cut the cord? The Fire TV Recast is a streaming box and an over-the-air DVR in one. And unlike many competing devices, there’s no monthly fee.
Echo Dot for $39.99
I can do everything the big Echo can do, but it’s smaller (and cheaper). The speaker isn’t great, so it’s best to connect these to outside speakers if you plan to use it for music.
Echo Dot Kids Edition for $34.99
Just like the non-kids edition, this can do most Alexa tasks, but it automatically filters out adult content.
Echo Show for $189.99
The Echo Show is an Alexa-enabled device that comes with a 10.1-inch HD screen for streaming videos and making video calls. It even shows album art and music when streaming Amazon Music.
Echo Plus for $149.99
This is a standard Echo, but it has a built-in smart home hub that lets you control things like the light bulb it comes with.
