The Amazon Echo (4rd Gen) deal stands out because it continues to be the best smart speaker available from any company — especially at this price.

It’s more expensive than the Echo Dot, which is on sale for $30, but its audio hardware is a lot better: A three-inch woofer and dual front-firing 0.8 inch tweeters will deliver balanced, good sounding music at moderate volumes. You can connect the Echo to a larger stereo system via Bluetooth or a 3.5mm audio cable for an even better experience.

The Echo has Alexa, Amazon’s smart assistant built in, which allows you to connect it to smart-home accessories like lightbulbs and smart plugs.

At $69.99 the Amazon Echo (4rth Gen) is the best all-around smart speaker you can get for under $100, so don’t miss out. If you’re looking for a quality speaker for your home audio setup, this is a solid one to get.’

The Best Fire TV Stick Deal

Amazon’s Fire TV Stick 4K is one of our favorite media streamers, and it’s more than worth its current $38 price-point.

The compact device plugs directly into an HDMI port on your TV, and allows you to stream movies, TV shows, and music from a variety of different services. If you’re unsure of which subscription services to subscribe to, we have a guide.

The Fire TV Stick 4K comes with an “Alexa” remote, which allows you to access Alexa (Amazon’s smart assistant) with the push of a button. You can use Alexa to turn your TV on and off, adjust the volume, or find the right TV show, movie, or song without opening an app. Alexa can also be used to control smart home accessories.

At $38 the Fire TV Stick 4K is the best media streamer in its price range, and an upgrade your living room deserves.

The Best Kindle Paperwhite Deal

Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite is the best e-reader for most people, and you can save $35 if you pick one up right now.

The Paperwhite has a 6-inch high resolution e-ink display, which makes digital text look remarkably similar to actual print. The screen won’t show a glare when you read in direct sunlight, and has backlights, so you can read at night. The device is waterproof, and its battery can last several weeks between charges if you read for a half hour per day.

You can get the Kindle Paperwhite in two storage tiers: 8GB or 32GB. In both cases, you’ll be able to store hundreds of books, but we recommend getting the larger one if you plan on listening to audiobooks, which take up more space.

At $95, the Kindle Paperwhite is an incredible value compared to Amazon’s other e-readers, and competitive devices.
