If you’re going back to college, the streaming stick should definitely be on your back to school list. After all, a good one can provide hours of inexpensive entertainment when you need to relax after studying. Buying feels especially attractive today when Amazon’s latest Fire TV Stick 4K Max is at the lowest price we’ve seen since Prime Day.
Regularly $ 54.99, Amazon and Best Buy are selling the streaming stick for $ 39.99, which is only $ 5 less than the all-time low end device. We think the Fire TV Stick Max is the best streaming stick for those embedded in the Amazon ecosystem, namely because it integrates quite well with Alexa and lets you reliably issue voice commands using the included remote. We also found that it offers a great selection of streaming apps and faster performance than its predecessor, not to mention Wi-Fi 6 support. Read our review.
Excited about the premiere House of the Dragon but aren’t you so thrilled with the costly HBO Max subscription that you’ll have to watch it? Now until October 29, new and returning subscribers can get a 30 percent discount on the HBO Max annual subscription, assuming you don’t mind paying the full year up front. This means you can buy an ad-free plan for $ 69.99 instead of $ 99.99 ($ 5.83 a month) or buy an ad-free plan for $ 104.99 instead of $ 149.99 (or $ 8.75 a month).
Whichever plan you choose, you will be able to watch House of the Dragon in addition to other popular shows and movies, including Batman, Inheritanceand more. Just be mindful of the ongoing Warner Bros. megafusion that has already resulted in the removal and cancellation of many shows and movies – including Bat girl.
Speaking of college, a pair of noise canceling earbuds will come in handy as they can help you focus better by turning off your roommates. While the best ones tend to be expensive, Amazon is currently charging $ 40 off its second-gen Echo Buds. You can buy them from a wireless charging case for just $ 99.99 or a wired charging case for $ 79.99, which are some of the lowest prices we’ve seen so far on true wireless earbuds.
Sure, the newest Echo Buds may not boast of brilliant noise reduction technology like Apple’s AirPods Pro, but their ANC is effective for the price. In addition, they offer many other great benefits including good sound quality, replaceable earpieces, IPX4 water and sweat resistance, and a great relay mode to let you hear your surroundings.

If you want to increase the security of your home, you can check out today’s Ring Alarm Pro discount. The eight-piece kit is a good investment for those looking to get started with a home security system, especially as it’s easy to use and provides everything you need. While not compatible with Google Home, Apple’s HomeKit, or IFTTT, it integrates quite well with Amazon Alexa.
Typically $ 299.99, you can now buy it for $ 239.99 at Best Buy and Amazon (delayed shipping), which is the best price ever. The discounted kit includes a base station that doubles as an Eero 6 dual-band Wi-Fi router, four contact sensors for doors and windows, a motion sensor, and a Z-Wave range extender to reach sensors further away. Just remember that the system doesn’t come with 24/7 video recording and you will have to pay extra for local storage. Read our review.
