Score an Amazon Fire TV for less this Black Friday, up to $40 off at Staples

The streaming TV stick genre has plenty of options, depending on your preference or brand loyalty. If you’re a fan of Amazon’s Fire TV lineup, then this deal might be of interest to you. Staples has a Fire TV Stick 4K for just $30 during Black Friday, a nice $20 off the $50 MSRP. Amazon does offer the same discount on its website, but it looks like the device has already sold out there. If you’re interested, you had better pick one up while you can.

The device’s $50 price tag is already less than something like an NVIDIA SHIELD TV, but the price cut actually makes the device competitive against Xiaomi’s Mi TV Stick, which usually retails for $40 but limited to 1080p video output.

The e-commerce giant also offers a faster, more powerful streaming device called the Fire TV Cube. By providing hands-free access to Alexa, it can replace a smart speaker in any room with a TV. You can still get all of the features that are currently offered by the regular Fire TV boxes and dongles.

At the time of writing, it’s available for $80 over at Staples and Amazon. That’s a whopping 33% less than the original price. But if the 4K stick is any indicator, then it may not last too long. So if you’re interested in picking one up at the current discount, it might be better to do it now, rather than later.

If you don’t need that much horsepower, no need to worry. The latest Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote is on sale for $28 (originally $40). It packs in an enhanced 1.7GHz quad-core processor, making it 50% more powerful than the previous generation. The device is capable of streaming 1080p video at 60fps with HDR compatibility, and it features a new dual-band, dual-antenna design with support for 5GHz Wi-Fi networks.
