Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite is on sale for $21.99

The Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite is on sale for $21.99. Just like the Fire TV Stick 4K, which is also on sale, this price is pretty much the second best price you’ll see for the Fire TV Stick Lite, since it only drops lower than this during Prime Day and Black Friday sales. The main difference between the Fire TV Stick Lite and the regular Fire TV Stick, which is oddly not on sale, is the included remote. The Fire TV Stick Lite has a remote that includes a dedicated button for the Fire TV’s live channel guide, while the Fire TV Stick has a remote that includes power, volume, and mute buttons to control your TV and/or soundbar. The Fire TV Stick Lite is a significant upgrade in performance over the previous 2nd-gen Fire TV Stick and if you already have the better remote with TV controls, you can use that with the Fire TV Stick Lite to achieve a very inexpensive upgrade and not lose any functionality.

Amazon Fire TV Cube is on sale for $99.99

Amazon has just put the Fire TV Cube on sale for $99.99. At $20 off the regular price of $119.99, this deal is essentially as good of a discount as you’ll see outside of Prime Day and Black Friday, when the Cube was available at its all-time lowest price of $79.99. This 2nd-gen Fire TV Cube is the most powerful Fire TV that Amazon has ever made, thanks to its 6-core 2.2 GHz processor. It packs in 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage (2x more than the Sticks), 802.11ac WiFi, and includes an Ethernet adapter. The Fire TV Cube ticks all the boxes by supporting 4K UHD at 60fps, Dolby Vision, HDR10+, HDR10, and Dolby Atmos audio. In addition to being a great streaming device, it doubles as an Echo device thanks to its built-in Alexa smart speaker. While it comes with Amazon’s best Alexa voice remote that can control your TV, soundbar, and AV receiver, there are also IR blasters built into the Cube itself to control your home theater equipment hands-free with voice commands.

Amazon’s Alexa Smart Sticky Note Printer reaches pre-order goal and will be released

Earlier this week, Amazon launched a new crowdfunding-like program called Build It where the number of pre-orders of a product determines if the product gets released. The program launched with three potential Alexa Gadgets and, after less than 3 days, the first of those products has already reached the required number of pre-orders to be released. The Smart Sticky Note Printer, which allows you to print notes, lists, puzzles, and more on inkless sticky paper by asking Alexa, will be released later this year. Anyone who places a pre-order for the printer before March 19 will pay $89.99, while all orders after that date will pay the regular price of $114.99. The printer is estimated to be released between July – September 2021. As of this posting, the Smart Nutrition Scale and Smart Cuckoo Clock have only received 39% and 35% of their necessary pre-orders, respectively.

Amazon Echo + 2 Free Philips Hue Smart Bulbs is on sale for $79.99

The latest version of the Amazon Echo is on sale for $79.99 and it includes 2 free Philips Hue smart bulbs. The included bulbs normally cost $29.99 for the pair and the Echo is normally $99.99, so this deal saves you about $50 versus buying the bundle at their regular prices. While Philips Hue smart bulbs normally require a separate hub to work, the latest Amazon Echo has the necessary hub functionality built-in, so this bundle provides everything you need to control the bulbs. Just set up the Echo, power on the bulbs, and say “Alexa, find my devices” to get everything linked up. This bundle was available for $69.99 during Black Friday, which is the lowest it has ever been, so this sale is pretty good since it’s not far off from that all-time lowest price. The Echo is available in Gray, White, Red, and Blue colors and all colors include the free bulbs.
