Amazon Fire TV for $74 at Staples

74-staples-deal-header

Staples currently has the Amazon Fire TV on sale for $84 with free shipping. Using coupon code 86128 knocks another $10 off the price, for a total of $74. That’s the lowest price I’ve ever seen for the Fire TV. The sale is expected to last until September 27th and they are currently still in stock online, but I expect them to go quick since they sold out the last time Staples had the Fire TV on sale for $84. For those interested in rooting, it’s likely the Fire TVs sold by Staples will come with older rootable firmware.
