Need a portable way to watch flicks, read books, play games, attend Zoom meetings and more? The super-popular Amazon Fire HD 8 Tablet can do all that and more, and right now it's a steal at just $45 (was $90).
The Fire HD 8 has a brilliant 8-inch HD display and is a great, affordable alternative to the pricey Apple iPad. It's super zippy and holds an impressive 12 hours of battery life. This model has 32 GB storage with 2 GB RAM. (Want more? The 64 GB model is on sale too!)
It's no wonder the Fire HD 8 has 101,600-plus five-star fans! "Love it!" wrote one happy shopper. "HIGHLY recommend for media consumption and kindle reading. Super affordable, comfortable to hold thanks to the larger uniform bezels and portable for on the go usage. Battery life is also great considering the brightness levels I keep it at and charged via USB TYPE C which is a bonus."
Get nearly 30 percent off Echo Buds (2nd Gen)
If you still don't have wireless earbuds, it's high time to snap up these on-sale Echo Buds. For just $85 (was $120), these babies not only let you listen to your fave music/podcasts/audiobooks hands-free but also feature active noise cancellation. They are small, lightweight and sweat-resistant with a customizable fit for ultimate comfort!
And they have nearly 5,700 five-star reviews! One fan wrote, "Stands tall against other name brands, at half the price...These buds are great. I tested them side by side against the Airpods Pro, Samsung Buds Pro, and the Huawei Freebuds Pro. In sound fidelity, soundstage, and overall roundness of sound, the Echo Buds win...They also include the most ear and wingtips to cater to almost every ear type."
Eero's Beacon WiFi range extender is down to $95
Eero customers who are irked by internet dead zones will be pleased to see that the company has a Wi-Fi range extender, the Beacon. By simply plugging in a Beacon and following the steps in the app, you can expand your existing Eero mesh Wi-Fi system — and you can add as many Beacons as you need. In addition to strengthening your internet coverage, the Beacon has a built-in nightlight that automatically adjusts to the brightness levels of the room.
One very pleased reviewer said their home is now free from dead spots: "I have five Beacons in my 6,600-square-foot, three-level brick home and I have no dead spots. I also have Wi-Fi outside, about 20 feet from the house. (I haven't tried farther than that.).... With the Beacons I no longer have a problem with slow internet.. We were paying for fiber-optic cable but not getting the benefit until I bought the Eero system. I love it. We have about 12 gadgets (cellphones, iPads, laptops, kindles) and Smart TVs (3) and everything works all at the same time. Great investment."
The Fire TV Stick Lite is just $19!
The Fire TV Stick Lite is currently 37 percent off, which comes to a mere $19.

The voice remote gives you access to Alexa and all her talents; just hold down a button to speak and have your smart assistant recommend movies, find TV shows, play music or access your other smart devices like cameras or thermostats. The Fire TV Stick Lite has legions of fans and more than 176,000 five-star reviews. One reviewer said, “Oh my, I shouldn’t have waited so long to purchase. I wasn’t sure if I needed it, but now I don’t know what I would do without it. It was super easy to connect to my TV and setup…I was ready to watch my shows in under 10 minutes!”

This TV has not disappointed us, and we are very pleased with the purchase.” Another happy customer said “Setup was a breeze, took only five minutes….
