Fire TV Stick

  • Regular Price$39.99
  • Okay Price$34.99
  • Good Price$29.99
  • Great Price$24.99

Price Reasoning

The lowest price the current generation Amazon Fire TV Stick has ever been is $29.99 which occured during Black Friday in 2016. That would normally make the "Great" price $29.99, but the previous generation Fire TV Stick, which also had a regular price of $39.99, had an all time low price of $24.99 so it's plausible that the current generation Fire TV Stick will also be offered for $24.99 later in its life cycle.

Fire TV Edition Televisions

Fire TV Edition televisions come in both Westinghouse and Element branding, but both brands are identical because they are both made by the same parent company. The features and specs of the different screen sizes are also identical to each other, so the only thing to consider when buying is the screen size you want and price.
  • Regular Price$449.99 (43")
    $549.99 (50")
    $649.99 (55")
    $899.99 (65")
  • Okay Price$399.99 (43")
    $499.99 (50")
    $599.99 (55")
    $799.99 (65")
  • Good Price$349.99 (43")
    $399.99 (50")
    $499.99 (55")
    $699.99 (65")
  • Great Price$299.99 (43")
    $349.99 (50")
    $399.99 (55")
    $599.99 (65")

Price Reasoning

Pricing is difficult to predict for the Amazon Fire TV Edition televisions because they are still very new devices. Only one of the sizes has ever gone on sale, which is when Amazon offered the 55" Element television for $399.99 during Prime Day in 2017. That sale was a "Door Buster" deal that sold out in less than 4 hours, so it's not a deal you should expect to come around often. Regardless, it's the only sale price there is to go off of, so all prices listed use that sale as a base.
