It’s not entirely certain, but today is very likely the last day to get in on the $84 Amazon Fire TV sale that has been going on this week. Amazon, RadioShack, Best Buy, and Staples are all still honoring the sale price. These sales seem to be happening less frequently, so this may be your last opportunity for a while to pick up a Fire TV at a discounted price. The Fire TV Stick is finally expected to be back in stock in a couple weeks, so I expect any future sales to focus on that devices. Remember, if you’re in the market for a rootable Fire TV, you’re better off buying from a retailer like Best Buy since most of the Fire TVs shipped out by Amazon lately have been unrootable. Going into a physical store and entering the Fire TVs serial number, printed on the outside of the box, into my Serial Number Decoder is your best way to ensure a rootable unit.
