Amazon offering $10 off when buying new Fire TV and Game Controller together [Expired]


Amazon is currently running a promotion where they’ll take $10 off your total when you buy the 2nd-gen Fire TV and the new Fire TV Game Controller together. It’s not much of a discount, but it’s significant since Amazon has literally never put any of their game controllers, new or old, on sale. Buying a Fire TV and the game controller with this promo will cost the same as the Fire TV Gaming Edition. The difference is you’ll essentially be trading the 32GB microSD card and two free games, which come included with the Fire TV Gaming Edition, for a Fire TV voice remote, which does not come with the gaming edition. Simply add both the Fire TV and the game controller to your cart and you’ll automatically see a $10 discount labeled “Controller Discount” when you checkout.
