Amazon Fire TV Stick Stories November 10, 2015

Update (11/13 11:00am): It’s been a crazy morning, but we’ve got more deals. Best Buy added a number of pages and 300 items to its Black Friday ad, then took it down (for now). We have the latest pages from the ad and have updated our list of top deals below.

Best Buy has pulled back the curtain on its Black Friday plans and deals for this year. The jam-packed 27-page ad includes a tremendous amount of Apple gadgets, video games, HDTVs, media, and more. Best Buy stores are set to open their doors at 5PM on Thanksgiving, but many deals will go live online earlier in the day.

Don’t feel like waiting until the end of the month to shop? Some offers are available right now while supplies last.

Amazon Fire TV Stick Stories June 14, 2015

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. expand full story

Sling TV is barreling down on cable TV like a freight train. Not only is this innovative service currently the best way for cord cutters to get select TV stations, but now Sling TV has landed on Fire TV and will offer free streaming devices.

When you prepay three months of Sling TV service ($60), you’ll be able to grab an Amazon Fire TV Stick ($39 value) or Roku Streaming Stick ($50 value) for free. If you’d rather get a full streaming box, then you can also opt to save 50% on an Amazon Fire TV ($99 value) or Roku 3 ($100 value).

Here’s how Amazon is handling the promo:

  1. Sign up for your subscription on the Sling TV website and prepay three months of Sling TV service.
  2. After signing up, you will receive a promotion code that can be used for $50 off Amazon Fire TV or a free Fire TV Stick.
  3. Copy the promotional code, go to www.amazon.com/redeemslingtvoffer, and add one Amazon Fire TV or Fire TV Stick to your shopping cart.
  4. Proceed to check out. Paste or enter the promotional code in the “Enter a gift card or promotion code” field, click the ‘Apply’ button and complete your order.
  5. When your device arrives, simply plug it in, connect to the internet, and start enjoying instantly.

We haven’t heard any specific instructions from Roku as to how you can redeem its offer, but you should be able to simply sign up via Sling.

Looking to learn more about Sling TV? Head over to our complete coverage of this cord cutters dream. Or maybe your hesitant to commit to three months of service? Sling TV is currently offering a free seven-day trial of its service for those interested in taking a look first.
