The people at UGREEN, who make ethernet adapters that are compatible with the Amazon Fire TV 3 and Fire TV Stick 2, reached out to thank me for my articles and offered to give AFTVnews readers an exclusive discount on the two adapters that I’ve been recommending. The UGREEN Ethernet Adapter w/ built-in USB Hub can be purchased for 20% off using promocode AFTVDEAL at checkout. That brings the price down from $13.99 to $11.19. This is the adapter that I personally recommend over Amazon’s official Fire TV Ethernet Adapter because it gives you 3 USB ports in addition to an ethernet port. It works for both the new Fire TV 3 and the Fire TV Stick 2, but you will need to also use an OTG adapter, like this standard one or this mini one. The other discount is 30% off of the UGREEN Ethernet Adapter using promocode AFTVNEWS, which brings the price down from $17.99 to $12.59. This is the adapter I used to recommend before Amazon released their own official adapter. It doesn’t offer much over the official adapter, although its long cables do give you more flexibility with your positioning than with Amazon’s adapter. Both of these promocodes will expire tomorrow.
Some people have had trouble getting these adapters to work with Fire TVs and Fire TV Sticks. Myself and others haven’t had any trouble. I’m not sure why this is, so be warned that there seems to be some unknown variable that causes these adapters to not be recognized.
For anyone wondering, UGREEN did not pay me anything nor give me anything to write this post. They simply contacted me after seeing my earlier posts about their products and offered to make the custom discount codes for my visitors.
I have NEVER been paid for anything that I’ve written on AFTVnews. If that ever changes, which I don’t think it will, I’ll be sure to plaster that fact all over the article. In the very rare instances when a company gives me a product for free, I always mention it in the article about the product. That is not the case here. UGREEN has never given me anything for free. I purchased both of the adapters mentioned in this post myself without ever being in contact with UGREEN.
Can we please please please get this deal in Canada?? Since we can get the fire tv stick now!
Sorry, I’ll see if I can get them to extend the codes to other regions.
No need to apologize, I appreciate this site. It is helpful
Thanks for all you do
Question: Black Friday or Cyber Monday for the best Amazon deals?
Neither. Prime Day usually has the best deals.
But between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the better prices are usually on Black Friday. We’ll sometimes see deals on Cyber Monday for items that did not go on sale during Black Friday, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen something be cheaper on Cyber Monday when it already went on sale during Black Friday.
For Amazon devices though, as long as the item doesn’t sell out, the sale price usually lasts through the weekend and ends at the end of Cyber Monday, so it’s all just one big continuous sale for Amazon hardware.
Thanks! Wonder if we’ll be getting FTV4’s for Christmas?
This adapter does not work with the Fire Stick 2! Do not buy it!! This is really poor advice from aftvnews. The author has clearly not fully tested this with the Fire Stick 2.
