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 ›

Get this Echo Dot Deal
Amazon has thrown a curveball by starting several Prime Day sales 12 hours early. One of those deals is the 3rd-gen Echo Dot for $18.99. To make an already great deal even better, Amazon is throwing in a free LIFX smart bulb. The lowest price that this Echo Dot has ever been in the past is $22, so this is the new lowest price that it has ever been, even before you factor in the free smart bulb. The included smart bulb connects via WiFi so you don’t need any kind of smart hub to control it. While Amazon has announced the new spherical 4th-gen Echo Dot, that won’t be shipping until later in the month so it’s not expected that it will be on sale during Prime Day.
Get this Fire HD 10 Deal
Among several Prime Day deals that have already gone live early is the Fire HD 10 tablet for $79.99. This is a great deal and $70 off of the regular price of $149.99 for Amazon’s most powerful tablet. This is also the new lowest price this tablet has ever been, beating out the last best deal by $20. The Fire HD 10 features a 10.1″ 1920×1200 (1080p) screen, an 8-core 2.0 GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, USB-C charging, and a microSD card slot for expanded storage. Also available is a 64GB model on sale for $119.99.
Get this Echo Flex Deal
The Amazon Echo Flex is on sale for $9.99 and includes a Free LIFX Smart Bulb. This is a ridiculously good deal when you consider that the Echo Flex on its own has a regular price of $24.99. The lowest price the Echo Flex has ever been in the past is $17.49, so $9.99 is already a new all-time low price before you even factor in the free smart bulb. The included bulb connects via WiFi so you don’t need any kind of smart hub to use it. The Echo Flex is Amazon’s most basic Echo smart speaker. Its tiny speaker isn’t going to sound good for music, but it’s perfectly sufficient for speaking to Alexa, which is what it’s designed for. On the bottom of the Echo Flex is a USB port that can be used to charge your phone or other devices. The USB port can also accept one of several Echo Flex accessories, including a Motion Sensor, Night Light, or Clock which are on sale for $12.99. Each accessory is “smart” in that it can be controlled or incorporated into Alexa commands and routines.
Update: The free bulb has sold out, but the Echo Flex alone is still available for $9.99. You can also get the Echo Flex + Amazon Smart Plug bundle for $14.99.
Get this Echo Studio Deal
Amazon has gone live with several of their Prime Day sales, including the Amazon Echo Studio is on sale for $149.99. This is the new lowest price that the flagship Echo smart speaker has ever been, beating out the last best deal by $20. Making the deal even better is the inclusion of 2 Philips Hue smart bulbs for Free. Since the Echo Studio has a smart home hub built-in, you don’t need the Philips Hue hub to use the included smart bulbs with the Echo Studio. The Echo Studio is Amazon’s best-sounding smart speaker, thanks to its 2 side-firring speakers, 1 up-firing speaker, 1 front-firing speaker, and 1 down-firing woofer. This assortment of speakers is also why a pair of Echo Studios can be wirelessly paired to a Fire TV to produce Dolby Atmos audio.
Prime members can now get Showtime for $0.99/month for 2 months as part of Amazon’s Prime Day early bird deals. Amazon put a dozen Prime Video Channel subscriptions on sale last week for the same $0.99/month, but Showtime was not included at the time. Epix was probably the best deal out of the original 12 channels, but with Showtime normally costing $10.99/month, it’s now easily the one to pick if you’re looking to unlock a bunch of content for very little money. Remember, Prime Video Channel subscriptions are easy to cancel online in a few clicks and canceling will not cut off access until your next renewal date. So, you can subscribe for $0.99 and cancel immediately to get 1 full month of access, or set a reminder to cancel in just over 1 month to get 2 full months of access for $1.98. All channels available for $0.99/month for 2 months are: Showtime, Epix, PBS Masterpiece, PBS Documentaries, Urban Movie Channel, UP Faith & Family, Lifetime Movie Club, Pantaya, Sundance Now, Motortrend, History Channel Vault, A&E Crime Central, and Movie Sphere
UPDATE: Starz is now also available for $0.99/mont for 2 months. It normally costs $8.99/month.
