Take that, Amazon! In response to Prime Day, Walmart just launched the Big Save event, and the deals are downright swoon-worthy.

The sale kicks off today, October 11, and runs through Thursday, October 15. We don’t recommend taking your sweet time, though: The deals will be gone before you know it.

One of the best ways to upgrade a TV is to simply add a streaming device to it. It’s a great opportunity to get access to Netflix, Hulu and HBO Now while also giving an old TV new life. Enter the Roku Streaming Stick+, a small, lightweight tool that instantly converts a behind-the-times TV into a streaming powerhouse.

And right now, the Roku Streaming Stick+ is on sale for just $37, or $12 off its list price.

“Roku is super easy to set up and cheaper than cable,” wrote a five-star fan. “If you do not have a smart TV you will with a Roku. It is small and you will never see it since mine is behind the TV. The remote syncs with your TV so you can turn it off and on and use the volume too. Perfect!”
