Update: Sorry, folks, it looks like I was misinformed about this deal and it will not work for just anyone — you need to have been opted into the offer by Amazon. It worked for me when I tested it and so I didn’t realize there was anything unusual about it when I posted the deal. This is one of those situations where I tried to share what I thought was a good deal and I was mistaken about the eligibility conditions — so very sorry, and I will try to make it up to you guys.
Just yesterday I told you about an, which you can get for just $140. Great deals on Amazon gadgets happen like clockwork, but I just discovered a new one for the weekend: Right now, the Fire TV Stick 4K is half off for Amazon Prime members. The stick goes on sale regularly, but this matches its lowest price ever, and that doesn’t happen often. So here’s the deal: Get the when you apply discount code 4KFIRETV at checkout. But to reiterate, this deal will only work if you’re an Amazon Prime member.
The Fire TV Stick 4K is one of the very best media streamers you can buy — it’s a good value at its regular price of $50, and it’s simply a no-brainer at $25. You can read CNET’s fullfor details, but I’ll summarize it for you: It has best-in-class voice control features, better streaming service support than any other player in its price range and the video quality is first-rate. The only real complaint? Amazon hawks its own content a little too hard. We’d all appreciate it if Fire players were a little more agnostic when it comes to surfacing shows to watch.
But $25? Sign me up.
