Alexa, Amazon’s voice assistant, has turned another year old, and to celebrate, several Echo and Fire TV products have been discounted to their lowest prices. Most of the current products available are represented, including the range of Fire TV streaming devices, Echo speakers and smart displays, and other Alexa-powered gadgets — though, not everything is here (looking at you, Echo Studio, along with the new, spherical Echo speakers). Perhaps we’ll see even deeper price cuts the closer we get to Black Friday, as many of these deals match the Prime Day offers.
The new Fire TV Stick Lite with Alexa remote is $18 (usually $30). This deal is also happening at Best Buy. Amazon’s new Fire TV Stick that includes an Alexa remote that has TV controls is $28 instead of $40 You can bump it up to 4K resolution for just a few bucks more with the Fire TV Stick 4K at $30, down from its usual $50 price For the most high-end streaming device Amazon makes, the Fire TV Cube is $80 instead of $120 If you want to record content and play it back on your other Amazon products, like your Fire TV Stick or Fire HD tablet, you’ll want the Fire TV Recast. It costs $130 ($100 off) for the 500GB version. Photo by Dan Seifert / The Verge
