The Amazon Fire Stick 4K Is Majorly Discounted for Black Friday 2021—And So Are Echo Dots
We wait all year for this one weekend when all the best big-ticket tech items go on sale, and Amazon Black Friday 2021 deals did not disappoint. So if you’ve been hoping to outfit your home with all the coolest Alexa-powered products, now is the time to act. Here are three items we’re definitely adding to cart ASAP before they sell out, including the Amazon Fire Stick 4K and several Echo Dots.
1. Fire TV Stick 4K streaming device
There are multiple Fire TV Stick models included in Amazon’s Black Friday sale, but this one is top of our list for multiple reasons. First, it works beautifully with all the best HD and 4K UHD TVs, as well as Dolby Vision, HDR and HDR10+ surround-sound systems for as close to a movie theater experience as you can get while sitting in your own living room. Second, this handy little stick is currently a whopping 50 percent off, plus, there’s an option to get an additional 20 percent off if you trade in an old Fire TV Stick to exchange for this brand-new version. Oh, and did we mention that you can use the remote with just your voice, too? So while you’re too stuffed full of delicious Thanksgiving leftovers, you can call on Alexa to access new Netflix releases and old Friends re-runs alike without so much as raising a finger.
2. Amazon Echo Dot (4th Gen)
Save 40 percent on the site’s most popular mini speaker, the Echo Dot 4th Generation speaker. You can save even more if you upgrade to the Echo Dot with Echo Auto, which gives you all the same Alexa-powered capabilities, just in your car. Set timers while you cook or work out, blast music from multiple rooms in your home and catch up on the news, all to the tune of major savings. There’s also an adorable Mandalorian stand inspired by Baby Yoda (aka The Child) for any Star Wars fans on your holiday gifting list.
3. Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen)
The 3rd Gen Echo Dot has many of the same fun features as the 4th Gen—Alexa-set timers, news briefings, impressive sound quality for playing all your favorite music—but comes at a lower price point for those looking to save even more. It’s also more compact, making it a great gift for friends who don’t have a ton of extra shelf space or who prefer the effect of practically invisible speakers (you can sync multiple Dots for a surround-sound effect). Plus right now you can add either a free Smart Color Bulb, which can set the mood for parties, cozy nights in or high-energy mornings all through your Alexa-powered Dot, or six months free of Amazon Music Unlimited to your 3rd Gen order without upping the price even one cent.
