Amazon is currently discounting its Fire TV streaming media player. Prices start at $84.99 for just the player and run up to $124.99 for the Gaming Edition. These are the best deals we’ve seen since Prime Day back in mid-July.

*Also available via Best Buy

Amazon Fire TV offers support for 4K Ultra HD video thanks to a quad-core processor, 2GB of memory and 802.11ac Wi-Fi. It also has 8GB of internal storage that can be expanded to 200GB. Rated 4.2 out of 5 stars from nearly 16,000 Amazon reviewers.

It doesn’t include an HDMI cable, but that’s not a big deal since you can pick up one for only $5.

The cost of college tuition in the U.S. is completely out of hand and soaring textbook prices are just adding insult to injury. Amazon wants to help you fight back by taking an extra $15 off new textbook orders of $100 or more when you apply coupon code TEXT15 during checkout. You can place a single order with multiple books in it to help you hit the $100 threshold. It’s not a huge amount of savings, but every little bit helps. Amazon sells textbooks for a range of subjects including business, computer science, law, education and more.

Amazon Vehicles is “a car research destination and automotive community” with loads of specifications, high-quality images, reviews, pricing details and more for new and classic cars.
