- Fire TV 4K for $40 With Prime
Amazon's Fire TV streaming media player with 4K output is on sale for $40 for Amazon Prime subscribers only.
Price shows up as $70, and changes to $40 when logged-in to an Amazon account with an active Prime membership.
Note that the Fire TV does not work with services owned by Google, such as YouTube.
If you want the best of both worlds and okay with HD (1080p) instead of 4K output, we love the Roku Streaming Stick with Remote for $49.
Works with all streaming video services (Amazon Prime Video, YouTube TV, etc), so you don't have to feel locked in to one company.
Amazon Prime membership costs $119/year for a household (or $59/year for active students) and includes free 2-day shipping on many items, free same-day shipping on certain items, and streaming movie/TV/music services.
If you don't want to pay for Amazon Prime, there are free alternatives on free shipping, including:
- 25% Off of Select Clothing and Shoes
Amazon is giving an automatic 25% discount during checkout when buying clothes and shoes on the list.
Discount should appear automatically (no coupon code needed).

Note, it only applies to items sold by Amazon (not third-party sellers on Amazon).
Some clothing and shoes may be out-of-stock by Amazon after choosing a size & color.
Look for the words, "Ships from and sold by Amazon.com" written under the price, below the size/color pulldown.
- 6-Pack of Men's White T-Shirts $10.20
The reviews mostly good considering the price.
Several people complain about the quality, but say it's still a good undershirt for the price.

This deal is only available in cities where AmazonFresh provides grocery delivery service.
These areas include: Boston, Baltimore, Dallas, Chicago, New York City, and parts of California and New Jersey.

One-time Purchase - final price will be $10.90 after $5 coupon.
If you choose Subscribe & Save, remember to cancel your Subscribe & Save after your order ships, otherwise they will automatically re-order this item for you after a specified time has elapsed.
If you don't want the hassle of remembering to cancel, choose the One-time Purchase option and spend the extra $0.80.

- Amazon Fire 8" Tablet for $50
Amazon Fire HD 8 Tablet for $50 with free shipping.
Amazon's tablets are definitely the cheapest when compared to the prices of iPad and Android.
The Fire has far fewer features than more expensive tablets, and far fewer apps & games in their download library.
It won't sync (or Cast) the display with a TV and won't play YouTube videos, but will play a large selection of shows & movies with an Amazon Prime membership.

Aukey 10,050mAh Portable Battery Charger for $27, and code ZDGWM8R7 changes the price to $18 during checkout.
Weighs just under a half a pound, which is about the heaviest we would like to carry in a purse or pocket.
This one only charges one device at a time, versus many other large-capacity chargers which have 2 charging ports.

- Sale on Anker Products
Amazon is hosting a sale on Anker charging products, including car chargers, portable battery packs, and charging cables.
Their products are twice the price of many generic brands, but Anker is known for good quality.
They are also one of the few companies giving an 18-month warranty and 30-day money-back guarantee on their products.
Anker 20,000mAh Portable Battery Charger for $42.
Normally over $50.
Realistically, this will fully charge an iPhone 7's battery about 7 times, an iPad Mini about 3 times, or an iPad about 2 times.
However, this battery pack weighs about 0.8 pounds, which is pretty heavy to carry around in a purse or pocket.
During checkout, apply code SMART10 to get $17 off.
This coupon only works for Amazon customers who had not previously used a promotion on TP-Link Smart Plugs before.
A smart plug works with Wifi to connect the power outlet to your smartphone and smart speakers.

- Amazon Fire TV Stick for $20
Best Buy stores and BestBuy.com are selling the Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote for $20.
Shipping is free, and same-day in-store pickup is available.
$20 is an amazing value if you are OK with not having YouTube.
Since Amazon and Google are competing in the same space, Google's YouTube (and YouTube TV) do not work on a Fire TV Stick.
And, Amazon's Prime Video (including Amazon original series) do not play on a Google Chromecast.
All do play on a Roku.
Hulu, Netflix, Vudu, and other streaming apps work on the Fire TV, on Chromecast, and on a Roku.
We chose Google Chromecast in our home because we use YouTube TV for live shows (mostly sports and the evening shows).
We enjoy unlimited DVR per account, and up to 5 accounts included means everyone in the home can watch anything in their own TV library.

This is the cheapest rechargeable fan on Amazon, but is meant for a desk or flat surface only.
This is not the best choice for outdoor use, since it has no clip, clamp, or tripod for sitting on an uneven surface.
Even still, the price is a great value for a desk fan.
