Plenty of Amazon devices have gone on sale with discounts during the first half of the year in 2021, but Fire TV Stick deals have generally been few and far between. The good news is that Amazon remedied that with a few surprise bargains this week.

Our readers have been flocking to buy the Fire TV Stick Lite, which is down to just $24.99 right now, but we don’t think any of you should jump on that deal. Why not? Well, it’s because the wildly popular Fire TV Stick 4K is such a huge upgrade compared to that entry-level model, and it’s on sale right now for only $5 more if you use the coupon code HELLOFTV at checkout. There are also deep discounts on two more popular Fire TV products. It’s almost like Prime Day 2021 just started early!

Amazon wrapped up the year in 2020 with some fantastic deals on so many different Amazon devices. Then, the fun continued in 2021 because so many of those incredible sales carried over into the new year. Unfortunately, however, just about all of the hottest deals we’ve seen on Amazon’s various device lineups over the past few weeks have now vanished since Valentine’s Day and Presidents’ Day are both behind us. All those great bundle deals are gone too, and only a few Amazon devices are on sale left this week.

The good news is that the list of remaining Amazon device deals happens to include two of the most popular Amazon gadgets you can buy. It’s also a bit of a surprise since these particular Amazon gadgets haven’t been discounted very often over the past few months.

The Fire TV lineup is neck and neck with Roku in terms of popularity among our readers. Now, the most affordable product in that lineup is even more affordable thanks to a great discount.

Head to Amazon and you’ll find the Fire TV Stick Lite on sale for just $24.99. For those unaware of this latest addition to Amazon’s Fire TV product catalog, the device itself is exactly the same as the regular Fire TV Stick. The only difference is the remote, which is still an Alexa Voice Remote but lacks the extra power and volume buttons to control your TV. If that’s not a deal-breaker for you, definitely take advantage of this bargain!

That’s a solid deal, but we recommend skipping it despite how attractive it is. Our reasoning has nothing to do with the Fire TV Stick Lite itself, of course. Instead, we recommend snagging yourself a Fire TV Stick 4K for just $5 more.

There is perhaps no streaming media player at the $50 price point that comes anywhere close to matching the Fire TV Stick 4K, and it’s on sale right now for just $29.99. Just use the coupon code HELLOFTV at checkout and you’ll drop the price all the way down to a penny under $30. That’s the lowest price of 2021 so far.

Finally, there are two more Fire TV deals that our readers need to know about. if you want it all you can pick up a $120 Fire TV Cube on sale for $99.99. It’s basically a Fire TV Stick 4K combined with an Echo Dot, and people love it! And last but certainly not least, the Fire TV Blaster that lets you control your TV and soundbar using Alexa voice commands is on sale for $19.99 instead of $35.
