- While Amazon’s Kindle lineup of eBook readers is the first device line Amazon ever released, two other Amazon devices have long since surpassed the Kindle in popularity: The Fire TV Stick and the Echo Dot.
- While the Fire TV Stick is Amazon’s best-selling streaming media device overall, the upgraded Fire TV Stick 4K has topped it more recently.
- Amazon is offering a little-known deal that gives you a big 20% discount when you bundle the Fire TV Stick 4K with an Echo Dot.

It’s pretty difficult to believe that Amazon got its start as an online bookseller. It seems like a lifetime ago. When we think of Amazon these days, we think of two main things before anything else. First, we know that Amazon is the place to order just about anything you can imagine and have it express-shipped to your door for less than you would pay elsewhere. And second, we know Amazon as the company that makes all sorts of great hardware products that undercut rivals but still offer outstanding user experiences.
Among all of Amazon’s popular hardware device lines, there are two gadgets in particular that outsell everything else right now. Kindles still fly off the shelves and the new Echo Show 5 is also hugely popular (and $20 off right now if you buy a refurb), but the Fire TV Stick 4K and the Echo Dot are Amazon’s top sellers right now by a landslide.
The entry-level Fire TV Stick is still Amazon’s best-selling streaming media player overall, but the upgraded Fire TV Stick 4K has sold even better in recent years. For just $10 more, you get support for 4K resolution and HDR content. Considering how affordable 4K TVs are these days, the Fire TV Stick 4K is clearly the better choice for most people.
On the Alexa side of things, it obviously goes without saying that the Echo Dot is Amazon’s best-selling Echo speaker. It’s Amazon’s most affordable Echo speaker by a sizeable margin, so it’s easy to buy a bunch of Echo Dots and ensure you can access Alexa and speak voice commands no matter where you are in your home.
The Fire TV Stick 4K costs $50 if you buy it on its own, and the Echo Dot is also $50 as a standalone purchase. Neither individual product is on sale right now on Amazon, but if you bundle them together you get a big 20% discount. That shaves $20 off the total bundle price, getting you both the Fire TV Stick and the Echo Dot for a total of just $79.98.
