Get this Toshiba Fire TV Edition Deal
As an early bird Prime Day 2020 deal, the Toshiba 43in 1080p Fire TV Edition television is on sale for $179.99. That is the new lowest price that this 2020 model with the improved remote has ever been, beating the previous lowest price by $20. As I mentioned in my post about the Fire TV Recast sale, don’t expect this TV to be any lower when the main Prime Day sales event rolls around on October 13th and 14th, because Amazon typically doesn’t lower early bird Prime Day deals any further.
Get this Fire TV Recast Deal
Amazon has put the Fire TV Recast on sale for $129.99 as an early Prime Day 2020 deal for Prime members. This is the lowest price that the 500GB Recast with 2-tuners has ever been. Also on sale, as you’d expect, is the 1TB 4-tuner model for $179.99. That is also the lowest price the higher capacity Fire TV Recast has ever been. If you’ve been holding out for the best deal on a Fire TV Recast, here is your chance. Don’t expect this price to drop any lower on actual Prime Day, which is Oct. 13-14. Amazon never lowers an early bird deal even further when the main event rolls around. The Fire TV Recast allows you to watch over-the-air antenna channels for free through any Fire TV, Fire TV Edition television/soundbar, Echo Show, Fire Tablet, and mobile phone.
Amazon has announced that Prime Day will be October 13th and 14th this year. The big sales event, which typically occurs in July and runs an entire week, will run across those two days and feature “over one million deals” for Prime members, according to Amazon. In an effort to support small business, customers who spend $10 between now and October 12th with any of their curated list of small businesses will receive a $10 credit to spend during Prime Day. Amazon has also kicked off a few sales already and announced a few upcoming early deals. Read more ›
Amazon’s annual Prime Day sale usually takes place in July, but Amazon has now officially confirmed that the event will be postponed to later in the year. “This year we’ll be holding Prime Day later than usual, while ensuring the safety of our employees and supporting our customers and selling partners,” said a spokesperson for the company. Amazon said they will be having a discount event in India on August 6-7, but has not given a date for Prime Day in other regions. Prime Day is usually when we see the absolute lowest prices on Amazon devices. For reference, last year the Fire TV Stick was $14.99, the Fire TV Stick 4K was $24.99, and the Fire TV Cube (1st-gen) was $69.99 on Prime Day. I expect we’ll see those same prices for the Fire TV Stick and Fire TV Stick 4K this year. The current Fire TV Cube, being an all-new model, likely won’t be reduced quite as much as the old model was last year, so I’m expecting it to be priced around $89.99.
Prime Day is over and, as it tends to be every year, it was the most successful one yet for Amazon. The most popular products on Prime Day are always Amazon’s own devices, thanks to heavy discounts. If you missed out on any Amazon device deals, you’ll probably have a second chance in a few weeks. That’s because, for the last 3 years, 3rd-party retailers have had a one-day simultaneous sale on Amazon devices shortly after Prime Day. Read more ›

Prime Day is over, but if you missed out on a deal, Amazon is still offering several of the same discounts if you shop through Alexa. Just say “Alexa, order [item]” to hear if the Prime Day price is still available. You’ll be asked if you want to actually order the item after hearing the current price, so there’s no need to worry about accidentally ordering something at full price. Here is a list of items still available at a discount through Alexa. On the list are the Fire TV Stick for $19.99, the Fire TV Cube for $89.99, and more.
Looks like extended Prime Day deals through Alexa was only available for one day and has now ended.
As Amazon does every year, they’ve released some info highlighting how successful Prime Day was for them this year. Sales figures this Prime Day surpassed all other days in the past for Amazon, including Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and last year’s Prime Day. On top of it all was the Amazon Fire TV Stick as the single best selling product of the day. The Fire TV Stick reached this same achievement during Prime Day in 2016, but was dethroned during last year’s Prime Day by the Amazon Echo Dot. Amazon never reveals exactly how many units were sold but has said that “millions” of Fire TV devices were sold, with July 16th being “the best day ever for Fire TV devices.” Another Fire TV related milestone is that Prime Day’s sale on the Toshiba Fire TV Edition television made it “the best-selling TV deal in Amazon history.” Amazon says that they sold over six times as many Fire TV Edition televisions during this Prime Day as they did during last year’s record-setting Fire TV Edition sale on Prime Day.
There are still plenty of Prime Day Deals that are active, but I suspect most of you are probably done shopping. Let’s hear about what you bought and what was your best deal in the comments below.
There is currently a promotion where eBay will take $25 off any purchase of $110 or more when you use promo code PRIMO119 during checkout. Since Best Buy is selling the NVIDIA Shield TV w/ Remote & Controller on eBay for $179.99, applying the promo code PRIMO119 brings the price down to $154.99. That’s $5 off the regular price of $199.99 and is the new lowest price that game controller bundle has ever been. Amazon is currently still running a lightning deal on the Shield TV w/ Remote Only for $139, which is a great price and the lowest any Shield TV has ever been, but if you can want a game controller, you can get one for just $16 through the eBay deal. Thanks Joe for the tip!
Best buy is currently offering a very interesting bundle. They are selling an Amazon Echo Spot + Ring Doorbell Pro + 6 Month Plex Pass Subscription for $204.99. Purchased separately, those three items have a retail value of $399.97. If you just consider the current Prime Day prices for the Echo Spot and Ring Doorbell, you are still paying $274 for the pair, so this deal saves you $70 off of Amazon’s current sale prices. To get this deal, follow this link, check the box next to the Ring Doorbell and next to the Echo Spot color you want and click the Add to Cart button at the bottom. The Plex subscription will automatically b added to your cart.
