Well what do we have here, bargain hunters? Amazon devices were obviously a huge focus on Prime Day, but we haven’t seen many solid discounts since then. On Friday, however, Amazon surprised us all with a pair of deals that you should definitely check out. The Fire TV Stick is Amazon’s best-selling Fire TV product and the Echo Dot is Amazon’s best-selling Alexa speaker, and they’re both on sale today. The $40 Fire TV Stick is down to $34.99, while the Echo Dot gets an even bigger discount from $50 to $29.99. There’s no telling when these deals will end, so you should hurry up if you want to get in on the action!
