But you’d be remiss to think of these deals as just “cheap stuff.” We carefully comb through the myriad sales to find budget-friendly items that are worth your time and dollars, even at these lower-stakes prices: like a 4K-capable Fire TV Stick or a small and lightweight wireless earbuds.

The third-gen Echo Dot from 2018 with two GE Cync color smart LED bulbs is $17.99 (about $46 off) is $17.99 ($22 off). This Echo Dot is a bit old now, and soon to be two generations behind, but it’s still fine for issuing voice commands for an Alexa-connected house. The bundle with the GE bulbs is like a smart home starter pack.


The Roku Express 4K Plus replaces the Roku Premiere as Roku’s entry-level 4K player. It sports a faster processor as well as support for HDR10 Plus.


Amazon’s Fire TV Stick 4K packs support for 4K Ultra HD, Dolby Vision, HDR, and HDR10 Plus, along with an Alexa-enabled voice remote that controls most TV sets.
