Get this Free Fire TV Game
The Fire TV game PJ Masks: Racing Heroes has just gone Free for a limited time. This game normally costs $3.99 so if you have young kids around, here’s your chance to give them a bit of racing fun at no cost. It’s compatible with all Fire TV models except the 1st-gen Fire TV and 1st-gen Fire TV Stick. It can be played using the regular Fire TV remote control so you do not need to have a gamepad to play, but it is compatible with game controllers as well if you have one. Since this is normally a paid game, it has no ads which is ideal for young kids. As a reminder, if you’re not currently near your Fire TV, you can click through the link above and “buy” the game for free through Amazon.com so that it is forever available from the cloud.
Get Insignia 70in Fire TV Edition Deal
That didn’t take long at all. I just wrote about Insignia releasing the first 70-inch Fire TV Edition television last week and now it is on sale for $499.99. This is the first time it has ever been on sale. At $150 off of the regular price of $649.99, this is a pretty good price considering it is the largest Fire TV Edition television that you can buy. Typically, the largest size doesn’t get discounted as much as the smaller sizes, but this 23% discount is more than I would have expected for a first sale. If you want to read about the specs in detail, check out my article from last week, but, in summary, this is a 4K TV running Amazon’s latest Fire OS 7 operating system, based on Android 9 Pie. It supports HDR 10 but does not support Dolby Vision. It runs a quad-core 1.5 GHz CPU with 2GB of RAM, but, like all Fire TV Edition TVs, still only comes with 8GB of internal storage. However, the USB port can be used to expand that internal storage for additional apps on a USB drive, for apps that support being moved. The TV has 3 HDMI ports, 1 of which is an ARC port, Ethernet, 802.11ac WiFi, a built-in tuner, and comes with Amazon’s latest Fire TV Edition Alexa voice remote. If you’re looking to upgrade to the ultimate Fire TV Edition television, here’s your chance to save a decent amount. (Thanks for the tip, Charlie!)
Get this Fire TV Soundbar Deal
Well, this is awkward. Less than 2 days after it was on sale for $119.99 during Prime Day, the TCL Alto 8+ Fire TV Edition Soundbar is now on sale for $107.18. I can’t remember a Fire TV device ever going on sale for a better price so soon after a major sales event, but I guess there’s a first for everything. At 46% off its regular price of $199.99, this sale is the new lowest price that this soundbar has ever been. If you purchased it during Prime Day, you may want to chat with Amazon Customer Support to see if they’ll refund you the difference. Unlike most Prime Day deals on Fire TV Edition devices, which started early on October 12th, this soundbar didn’t go on sale until late into the last day of the Prime Day sales event. Perhaps it’s back on sale so soon because its short Prime Day run resulted in fewer than expected purchases. Whatever the reason, here it is for its best price yet for those who are interested. In this soundbar is essentially a Fire TV Stick 4K with all the same capabilities, such as support for Dolby Vision, HDR10+, HDR10, and 2160p video at 60fps.
Amazon currently has a great deal going for Prime Day where they are offering numerous Prime Video Channel subscriptions for $0.99 per month for the first 2 months. With channels such as Showtime, Starz, and Epix included, that’s easily one of the cheapest ways to gain access to literally thousands of great movies and TV show episodes for next to nothing. The only concern is forgetting to cancel after the promotional period ends and getting billed at full price. Here’s how to get rid of that fear and take advantage of the offer with no chance of overpaying. Read more ›
Get this TCL Soundbar Deal
Prime Day kicked off yesterday with a slew of great deals, but new deals are still trickling in on the second day of Amazon’s big sales event. Among them is the TCL Alto 8+ Fire TV Edition Soundbar for $119.99. Unlike most of the Fire TV Edition television deals, which have nearly all been new all-time low prices, this TCL soundbar price is $10 above the lowest that it has been in the past. at 40% off of the regular price of $199.99, it’s still a pretty good price if you’re looking to add 4K streaming capabilities and significantly better sound to your TV with a single device. In this soundbar is essentially a Fire TV Stick 4K with all the same capabilities, such as support for Dolby Vision, HDR10+, HDR10, and 2160p video at 60fps.
Here is a massive list of all of the Amazon devices currently on sale for Prime Day. If you just want to scroll through everything worth considering and all the various bundles and configurations available, this is the list for you.
10/14/20 I’ve gone through and added new deals that have recently popped up and marked the old deals that have ended.

IPVanish VPN service is joining in on the Prime Day fun with up to 73% off of their subscription this week. Their 1-year subscription is $39.00 for the first year, a discount of 73% off of the regular price of $143.88. If you don’t want to commit that long, a 3-month subscription is $13.50, which is 63% off of the regular price of $35.97. If you just want to give it a try for a month, you can pay $5 for 1-month of service, which saves 59% off of the regular $11.99 cost. I’m not a big VPN user, but it does occasionally come in handy for accessing international streaming services on Fire TVs, since IPVanish is fully compatible with all Fire TV devices through their Fire TV app. In full disclosure, IPVanish is the only VPN I’ve tried on Fire TV, mainly because it’s the most popular VPN app on Fire TV, and I am part of their affiliate program.
Get this Fire TV Stick 4K Deal
The Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K is on sale for $29.99 for Prime day. At $20 off of the regular price of $49.99, this sale is just $5 shy of the lowest price that the 4K Firestick has ever been. Very surprisingly, select customers who qualify for the long-running upgrade promotion using promo code 4KFIRETV can get an additional $25.00 off, bringing the price down to just $4.99. The two deals working together might be a mistake, so if you qualify for the promo code and $4.99 price, do not hesitate to order because the code may soon be disabled. The Fire TV Stick is the best performing budget-friendly Fire TV device, thanks to its 1.5GB of RAM, as opposed to the 1GB of RAM in the 1080p Fire TV Stick models. Even if you don’t have a 4K TV, it’s beneficial to get the Fire TV Stick 4K over the regular Fire TV Stick or Fire TV Stick Lite for the extra performance. The Fire TV Stick 4K supports 2160p video at 60fps, Dolby Vision, HDR10+, HDR10, and Dolby Atmos. It comes with the latest and best Alexa Voice Remote which can control your TV, soundbar, and AV receiver. The only step above the Fire TV Stick 4K is the Fire TV Cube which is also on sale for $79.99, a savings of $40 off of its regular price of $119.99.
Get this Fire TV Cube Deal
The Amazon Fire TV Cube is on sale for $79.99 for Prime Day. At $40 off of the regular price of $119.99, this is the new lowest price that Amazon’s flagship Fire TV has ever been, beating out the last best price by $10. Since none of the Fire TV Sticks are on sale for Prime Day, if you were looking for a good Prime Day deal to upgrade your Fire TV, this is it. The 2nd-gen Fire TV Cube is the most powerful Fire TV that Amazon has ever made, thanks to its 6-core 2.2 GHz processor. It packs in 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage (2x more than the Sticks), 802.11ac WiFi, and includes an Ethernet adapter. This latest Fire TV Cube supports 4K UHD at 60fps, Dolby Vision, HDR10+, HDR10, and Dolby Atmos audio. In addition to being a great streaming device, it doubles as an Echo device thanks to its built-in Alexa smart speaker. While it comes with Amazon’s best Alexa voice remote that can control your TV, soundbar, and AV receiver, there are also IR blasters built into the Cube itself to control your home theater equipment hands-free with voice commands. Whether you plan to use all of the included bells and whistles or not, the Fire TV Cube is a fantastic streaming device that is well worth the purchase or the upgrade to any previous Fire TV at this great price. Internationally, the Fire TV Cube is on sale for £69.99 in the UK, €68.23 in Germany, and CDN$ 99.99 in Canada.
Amazon is offering certain Prime Day Deals only if you order through Alexa via voice commands. These deals must be ordered through an Alexa device, like an Echo or Fire TV, to get the lowest possible price. You can also order by voice using the Alexa app for iOS or Android phones. Currently, there are only 5 Alexa-exclusive deals, but, during previous Prime Days, Amazon has cycled new deals in and old deals out throughout the day, so keep an eye on this page for the latest Alexa-exclusive deals. I’ll keep an updated list of current and past deals here as well. Read more ›
