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

expiredRoku discounts each of its streaming media players by $10, new Roku 3 w/ voice search down to $90 shipped

Early last month Roku updated its streaming media player lineup. The top-of-the-line Roku 3 gained voice search and the Roku 2 was the recipient of a generous processor bump that brought it in-line with the performance of its big brother. Roku 3 is generally considered to be the best streaming media player on the market thanks to its exorbitant amount of content and feature-packed remote, even by avid Apple fans.

All of Roku’s streaming media players are getting $10 discounts on Amazon. Most notably the Roku 3 is down to $89.99. We briefly saw it hit $85 right after it was released, but there haven’t been any discounts since. Here are all of the deals:

discounts are also available via Roku.com:

Groupon is offering the Roku Streaming Stick with 2 Months Free of Hulu Plus for $40.49 shipped using code LABOR10 during checkout. That’s $9.50 or nearly 20% off the regular $50 price tag and within $0.49 of the lowest price we’ve ever seen. Most major retailers charge between $49 and $50 plus as much as $4 shipping.

The Roku Streaming Stick works offers much of the same options as its boxed counterparts, except this is just a Chromecast style (and sized) HDMI dongle that remains hidden on the backside of your display. It features 1080p streaming and access to more than 1000+ entertainment channels including HBO Go, Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, live sports and many more.

Purchasing and activating a Roku device before Sept. 30, 2014, will net you 2 months of free Hulu Plus as well. You’ll also get the remote and the free mobile control apps, for quick access to your favorite channels.

The Roku Stick includes a 90 day warranty from Roku and has received a 4/5 star rating from nearly 1,500 Amazon customers.
