The games R-TYPE and R-TYPE II are back on sale for $0.99 each. These prices match the lowest these games have ever been. These are classic side-scrolling space shooter games from the 80s that have been brought to the Fire TV. The games are compatible with all Fire TV models except the 1st generation Fire TV Stick. R-TYPE can be played with a remote control, but the sequel requires a game controller.
The Logitech Harmony Remote w/ Smart Hub is on sale for $58. This is the same price that it was available for during Black Friday and is the lowest price that it has ever been. Harmony remotes are among the few universal remotes that can control the Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, and Fire TV Edition televisions. The included hub connects to the Fire TV via Bluetooth, which lets it seamlessly relay commands from the remote, mobile app, and Harmony’s Harmony’s Alexa skill.
Amazon has discounted several of their Echo devices for Prime members. The new 2nd generation Amazon Echo is available for $79.99. At a savings of $20 off the regular price, that matches the lowest price that it has ever been when sold individually and matches the Black Friday Price. The Echo Show is on sale for $179.99 for Prime members. That’s $50 off of the regular price of $229.99 and is the second lowest price it has ever been. Lastly, the Echo Dot is $39.99, which is $10 off of the regular price. It was available for $29.99 for most of November and all of December last year, which is the lowest it has ever been. These Prime-exclusive prices are good through January 18 and is limited to one per customer per device.
Cannon Ballers, a defense game, has just gone Free. The last time this game was free was over 2 years ago. It’s inspired by arcade classics like Missile Defender with projectile juggling thrown into the mix. It’s compatible with all Amazon Fire TVs, Fire TV Sticks, and Fire TV Edition televisions, but requires a game controller to play.
Amazon has the Element 65-inch Fire TV Edition television on sale for $650. This is the new lowest price that this TV has ever been, which is 28% off the retail price. The lowest this TV has ever been before this sale was $764.99 during this past Black Friday, so this is a significant drop in price. The three other sizes that this TV comes in have been out of stock ever since they sold out during Black Friday, so it seems like once these TVs are gone, they’re not coming back. I’ve found evidence that Amazon is working on 2nd generation Fire TV Edition televisions, but there’s no telling when those will be released. I’m at CES this week, where these TVs were announced last year, and there haven’t been any new Fire TV Edition televisions revealed, so it seems like it’ll be a while before we see a replacement to these 1st generation TVs running Amazon’s Fire OS. If you’ve been eyeing these Fire TV Edition televisions and are looking to go big with the largest screen size that they come in, this might be your last chance to get one at an unbeatable price for quite a while.
If you’re at all interested in the stylish but strangely named C by GE Sol light fixture with built-in Alexa, it has just dropped down to $88.08 on Amazon. This is the new lowest price that the lamp and speaker combo device has ever been. It is essentially an Echo Dot with a large LED light in the shape of a ring attached to the top.

The TP-Link Smart Plug is back on sale for $19.99 on Amazon. Apart from a brief Alexa-exclusive deal over a year ago, this is the lowest price that this plug has ever been. This is the same plug that Amazon was bundling for $5 when you buy any Echo device, so if you purchased an Echo device recently with this plug and wanted more of them, here’s your chance to get them at a great price. This switch can be directly controlled by Alexa without needing any hubs or other equipment. Just plug it in, set it up in the app, and you’ll be able to control it by saying “Alexa, turn on/off the [selected name]..”
