The Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K is a cheap way to enable ultra HD video streaming on your TV or monitor, supporting YouTube, Netflix, Prime Video, and Hulu. Meanwhile, the third-gen Echo Dot can be paired with the Fire TV Stick 4K, allowing you to control the streaming stick with your voice.
Amazon Echo Spot (was $129.99, now $89.99)
The Echo Spot is essentially the Echo Dot with a 2.5-inch screen, allowing you to watch the news, see song lyrics, conduct video calls, and manage your calendar. This is, of course, in addition to the standard voice commands and the thousands of Alexa skills.

Wemo Smart Plug three pack (was $99.99, now $69.99)
Smart plugs are another sure-fire way to make your home, well… smarter. These plugs can either be controlled via Alexa and Google Assistant, or via the Wemo app. In a cool touch, the plugs are also compatible with Apple’s HomeKit and Google’s Nest.
Samsung 860 EVO 500GB SSD (was $109.99, now $72.99)
Need a solid state drive for the laptop or gaming console? You can do worse for the cash than the 500GB Samsung 860 EVO. The 2.5-inch drive comes with a five year warranty and has a maximum sequential read speed of 550MB per second.
Dual Shock 4 controller (was $59.99, now $38.99)
Console controllers can be super expensive, so we’re glad to see Amazon slash the price of the PS4’s Dual Shock controller. The official PS4 controller can also be used on PC, so you won’t have to buy a dedicated gamepad for the Windows machine.
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (was $119.99, now $79.99)
The Kindle Paperwhite e-reader has also seen a hefty price cut this week, although it’s worth noting that this is the previous generation model. You should also know that this particular variant comes with ads on the lockscreen and at the bottom of the homescreen when not in use.
Blink XT 1 home security camera (was $129.99, now $78.99)
The Blink XT 1 is a water-resistant home security camera for outdoor use, offering live HD video, motion detection, and Alexa support. The company behind the camera is also claiming two years of “regular use” with two AA batteries.
JBL E55BT headphones (was $180, now $59.95)
These JBL over-ear headphones might be the most significant discount on the list, as you save $120. In any case, you’re getting wireless cans that our sister website Soundguys quite liked, although they noted lag and unreliable connectivity.
