Of the major HDMI stick media players, Amazon’s Fire TV Stick is the one that we see the least amount of deals for. Sure there was the insane $20 launch promo and the free offer with Sling TV (still available), but aside from those deals there really hasn’t been any other opportunity to grab one at a discounted price. However, it looks like Amazon wants its diminutive streaming media player in the hands of dads this Father’s Day since it has just dropped down to $34 at Amazon, Best Buy, and Staples.
Chromecast is usually the go-to choice when it comes to streaming sticks, but Amazon Fire TV offers a couple features that Google’s player doesn’t: Fire TV Stick has a robust 8GB of storage for downloading games/apps, a dedicated physical remote control, and integrated voice search. It’s also really popular with buyers having garnered a 4.2 out of 5 star rating from 42,197 reviewers.
