There are many reasons why we love Amazon—the convenience, great prices, and wide selection of goods, just to name a few.
Over the years, Amazon has branched out and released their own wide range of Amazon Fire TV devices. These video streaming devices plug into your TV easily via an HDMI port to turn any TV into a “smart” TV and make watching your favorite shows, movies, events and channels a more enjoyable experience overall.
So if you’re looking to upgrade your TV set-up with an Amazon Fire TV device, we’ve highlighted the best deals going on right now so you can save money getting your dream products. Enjoy!

Other top Amazon Fire TV deals of the moment: Amazon Fire TV Stick, Amazon Fire Stick 4K Max, Amazon Fire TV Cube
- Amazon Fire TV Stick
The main advantage of the Fire TV Stick 4K is its ability to stream content in UHD or 4K resolution, which provides a higher quality picture. However, if you don't have a UHD or 4K TV or if you're looking for a more affordable option, the standard Fire TV Stick may be sufficient for your needs.
The Amazon Fire TV Stick is a great choice for streaming movies, TV shows, music, and more, on your television. So far, it’s got over 320,000 reviews on Amazon and an average star rating of 4.7. You’ll still get support for Dolby Atmos audio, but no 4K streaming capabilities.
Easy to set up and use, all you need to do is simply plug it into an HDMI port on your TV and follow the on-screen instructions to connect to your home Wi-Fi network.
Got an Alexa-based smart home? You can use the voice control remote included to control other smart home devices that are compatible with Amazon's Alexa voice assistant. But even if you don’t, the updated voice control remote lets you skip the slow process of searching for titles and speak them into existence, instead. The shortcut buttons for streaming apps like Prime Video, Netflix, Hulu and Disney+ make things even easier.
The Fire TV Stick usually retails at $39.99, but you can currently get it for just $24.99.

- Amazon Fire Stick 4K Max
The Amazon Fire Stick 4K Max is a pricier, more feature-packed version of the classic Amazon Fire Stick 4K. Why should you get the Max over other Fire TV devices?
Ultimately, it comes down to speed and performance. The Max is Amazon’s first-ever streaming stick with Wi-Fi 6 support. This means faster, smoother streaming and gaming across multiple Wi-Fi 6-connected devices. While it’s compatible with other wifi routers, you’ll need a Wi-Fi 6 compatible router (like the eero 6 mesh Wi-Fi 6 router).
Right now, you can save $20 on the Amazon Fire Stick 4K Max with a 2-year protection plan, getting it for just $41.98. The Amazon Fire Stick 4K Max on its own is currently sold out, but this bundle package is a killer deal, considering the Amazon Fire Stick 4K Max alone usually sells for $54.99. And if you really don’t want the protection plan, you can return it and get a full refund within the first 90 days.

- Amazon Fire TV Cube
The Amazon Fire TV Cube is a good option for those who want an all-in-one solution for streaming media and controlling their home entertainment system. It combines the features of the Amazon Fire TV Stick with those of an Amazon Echo smart speaker, allowing users to control their TV and other home entertainment devices using voice commands.
Its octa-core processor also makes for a lightning-fast streaming experience, twice as fast as the Amazon Fire Stick 4K Max. It comes with an 8-foot cable so you can place it in hard-to-reach locations such as behind closed doors, in a cabinet or closet.
In a nutshell, if you're new to Fire TV, or have a very old TV, this is a really great device and we heartily recommend it. If you're upgrading a Fire TV device or something relatively recent, then you’re better off with a cheaper option from this list.
The Amazon Fire TV Cube isn’t currently on sale, but you can keep your eye on it, because Amazon runs discounts often throughout the year.

How often does Amazon Fire TV offer deals?
It’s not rare to find special offers or discounts on Amazon Fire TV products at various times throughout the year, such as during holidays, Black Friday, and other shopping events. To get the best bang for your buck, it’s not a bad idea to check Amazon and other online retailers, like Best Buy, for deals and special offers on Fire TV products.
But there’s no better day for discounts on Fire TV devices than Prime Day.
Prime Day is an annual shopping event exclusively for Amazon Prime members. It typically takes place in mid-July and offers steep discounts on a wide range of products, including electronics, home goods, and more. During Prime Day, Amazon offers a variety of deals and promotions, including limited-time Lightning Deals, which are discounts on select products that are available for a short period of time. Amazon Fire TV products are often included in the deals and promotions offered during Prime Day, so it can be a good time to snatch up a device you’ve been eyeing for a while!
To participate in Prime Day, you must be a member of Amazon Prime, which is a paid subscription service that offers a range of benefits, including free two-day shipping, access to streaming video and music, and more. If you are not already a member of Amazon Prime, you can even sign up for a 30-day free trial to take advantage of Prime Day deals.

Is Amazon Fire TV better than Roku?
Roku is Amazon Fire TV’s largest competitor when it comes to streaming players. Which is better? To be perfectly honest, there’s no right or wrong answer here. It all depends on you.
In a nutshell, when we compare the two devices, they aren’t so different. Roku devices start at a lower price point, at $17.99, while Fire TV sticks start at $19.99. This balances out since the premium Roku products are more expensive than the premium Amazon products, but they do offer more in terms of features.
Generally speaking, we’d recommend Amazon Fire TV over Roku if you already have an Alexa-based smart home, and don’t mind frequent Amazon Prime ads. Amazon also discounts its products better and more often than Roky does.
What can you watch on Amazon Fire TV?
Amazon Fire TV devices allow you to access a wide range of streaming services and other content, including movies, TV shows, music, and more. Some of the popular streaming services that can be accessed on Amazon Fire TV include Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max, Disney+, and many more.
In addition to streaming services, Amazon Fire TV devices also allow you to access other types of content, such as music, news, and live sports.
Our takeaway: Amazon runs deals year-round, but biggest sales are on Prime Day
If you are looking for deals on Amazon Fire TV products, it might be a good idea to check online retailers such as Amazon or Best Buy. You can also check for sales and special offers directly on the Amazon website.
It is always a good idea to compare prices and read reviews before making a purchase to ensure that you are getting the best deal and a product that meets your needs—but there’s no better day for discounts on Fire TV devices than Prime Day, which runs in the middle of July.
