The Logitech K400 Plus keyboard with built-in touchpad is on sale for $17.98 at Amazon for today only. That matches the lowest price this keyboard has ever been. Many Fire TV owners, including myself, swear by this keyboard as the best bang-for-your-buck keyboard for couch use. This is not a Bluetooth keyboard and instead uses a wireless USB dongle to connect. That means it will work with the Fire TV 1 and 2 out of the box but needs an OTG adapter to work with the Fire TV Cube, like this one, or an OTG cable with power to work with the Fire TV 3 and Fire TV Stick 2, like this one. This sale is part of a larger sale where multiple Logitech accessories are discounted until midnight.
Amazon just started a new promotion that gives 10% Cashback on select Alexa devices when you use either an Amazon Prime Visa or an Amazon Prime Store Card to pay for the purchase. These cards normally give 5% cashback, so this promotion adds an additional 5% savings. Eligible Alexa devices are listed here and include all of the Echo devices and the non-kids Fire tablets. Fire TV devices and third-party Alexa hardware are not included in this promotion. Since most of the eligible devices are already on sale right now, this is a pretty good opportunity to get some great deals. This 10% cashback promotion ends June 25th, but the sale prices will likely end this weekend.
Amazon is currently having a Father’s Day Sale on most of their devices, including Fire TVs, Echos, Tablets, and more. Several of their accessories are on sale as well. Unlike past sales when most devices get discounted all at once, this one actually has some prices that are new all-time lows. An example is the Echo + Echo Dot bundle for $99.98, which has never been this low in the past. Even the Fire TV Game Controller, which hasn’t been on sale since 2016, is currently discounted at a new all-time low price of $34.99. Here is the full list of Amazon devices and accessories currently on sale. This sale is expected to end Saturday (tomorrow) at midnight. Read more ›

The game Warhammer Quest has gone on sale for $1.49. That’s down 75% from its regular price of $5.99. This game is a mix of role-playing and strategy. It is based on the Warhammer tabletop game. It’s compatible with all Fire TVs, Fire TV Sticks, and Fire TV Edition televisions. The game can be played with either a remote or game controller, like Amazon’s Fire TV Game Controller which is going through a rare sale right now at $34.99.
Amazon has just put their Fabric Cases for the Echo Dot and their Sling Covers for the Amazon Tap on sale for $4.99. This is the first time either of these device accessories have ever been this low. The Echo Dot cases were permanently reduced from $14.99 to $9.99 about a year ago and have been as low as $7.99 in the past. They are available in Indio (blue), Charcoal (black), and Sandstone (white) at the $4.99 sale price.
The leather versions are not on sale. The Amazon Tap sling cases are normally sold for $19.99 and have only been as low as $14.99 during past sales, so this sale is a significant discount. They are available on sale in Black, Blue, and Tangerine for $4.99. The sling cover also comes in Magenta, but that color is strangely not on sale.
The leather cases for the Echo Dot have now also gone on sale. (Thanks Tom!) They’re $5.99 each, which is down from a regular price of $19.99. The lowest price that the leather cases have ever been is $14.99. The leather cases come in Merlot (burgundy), Midnight (black), and Saddle (tan).
Looks like the sling cover sale for the Amazon Tap only lasted 24 hours and is already over. The Echo Dot case sale is still available.

The Alexa Voice Remote for Echo devices is currently available used in “very good” condition for
$10.24 $9.84 from Amazon Warehouse. While this looks a lot like the Fire TV Alexa Remote, it’s made to be used with Echo devices so that you can remotely control media and talk to Alexa from a distance. The new remote sells for $29.99, so this is a significant discount if you’re okay with not buying a completely pristine remote. The remote works with all Echo models, including the 1st and 2nd gen Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Spot, and Echo Show. It does not work with the Amazon Tap and does not work with any existing Fire TV device. It’s unknown if it will work with the Fire TV Cube, but I’d say it’s unlikely. The remote lets you talk to Alexa through the mic built into the remote, but there is no speaker in the remote, like there is on the Dash Wand. You can also control volume and media playback with the remote. I have one and find that it’s most useful to use for controlling music when I have the volume turned up so high that I would need to practically yell for Alexa to hear me over the music.
Look out the window because you might see pigs flying. That’s because the Fire TV Game Controller is on sale for $34.99. This is an extremely rare occurrence because Amazon’s first-party gamepad hardly ever goes on sale. The last time it was on sale was in 2016 for $39.99. Not only is this a rare sale, it’s also the new lowest price that it has ever been. One day you’ll tell your grandkids that you were around when the Fire TV Game Controller was on sale for $34.99 and they’ll call you a liar.
The Fire TV Game Controller is a fantastic and very well made gamepad that feels as good as the PlayStation and Xbox controllers, which is probably why it hardly ever goes on sale. It is compatible with all generation Fire TVs and Fire TV Sticks. Before you ask, yes, it is also compatible with the new Fire TV Cube. The only devices it is not compatible with are the Fire TV Edition televisions. The last thing you should know is that the built-in headphone jack only works with the Fire TV 2, but other than that, all functionality works with all Fire TV devices, including the built-in Alexa microphone.
Just after Amazon’s Prime-only sale for the new Amazon Fire TV Cube came to an end, they’ve put the older Fire TV devices on sale as part of their Father’s Day Sale. If you’re not interested in the Cube’s universal remote or hands-free Alexa capabilities, you can get the Amazon Fire TV (pendant) on sale for $49.99. The Fire TV shares the same video playback capabilities as the Fire TV Cube, which includes 4K @ 60 FPS and HDR support. The key spec differences are 8GB of storage for the Fire TV, versus 16GB for the Cube, and no expandable storage support for the Fire TV, whereas the Cube will support USB drives for app storage. If you don’t need 4K or HDR, then the Fire TV Stick on sale at $29.99 is still a great choice. Both of these Fire TV and the Fire TV Stick sales are just $5 more than the lowest price these devices have ever been.
As part of their Fathers Day Sale, Amazon has just put the Amazon Echo on sale for $79.99. This is a great price because it matches the lowest price the Echo has ever been. An even better is the Echo + Echo Dot bundle for $99.98. This is the first time that this bundle has ever been this low. Essentially, you’re buying the Echo at regular price and getting an Echo Dot thrown in for free. Or you can think of it as getting an Echo at its all-time lowest price and getting an Echo Dot for just $20. No matter how you see it, it’s a killer deal and the best that has ever been offered. If you’re not interested in the full-sized Echo, you can still get a pair of Echo Dots for $59.98 by just adding two to your cart at the discounted $39.99 price and getting $20 off automatically at checkout.
Today is the last day for Prime members to save on the all-new Amazon Fire TV Cube. If you place your pre-order by midnight tonight, June 8th, you’ll save $30 and pay only $89.99. A limit of 3 can be purchased at this price. If you’re on the fence about buying the Fire TV Cube, I suggest placing a pre-order today and then making a final decision over the next couple of weeks. The Fire TV Cube doesn’t ship until June 21st, so you’ll have until then to cancel the pre-order if you change your mind. If you’re not a Prime member, you can sign-up for a free 30-day trial to be immediately eligible for the $30 discount. Everyone who registers a new Fire TV Cube by July 1st will also receive a $10 Amazon Video credit for free.
