You and your family deserve time to relax after the post-school chaos has subsided. Once Fire TV Stick 4K and your TV are synced, you’ll have access to hundreds of streaming apps and channels, including Prime Video, Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Disney+, HBO Max, Apple TV+, Starz, Showtime and more.

Want to track your reading? Kindle holds all the books you’ve bought, but weighs only 6 grams. It also gives you access to Amazon’s Kindle library, where you can shop thousands of titles and have them delivered straight to your e-reader. Made with a 167ppi screen, you can read in sharp contrast.
“I love this Kindle,” said one five-star reviewer. “It’s REALLY light, which I appreciate. It’s responsive. When the Kindle is in sleep mode, you can choose to have the book you’re currently reading as the sleep Lock Screen, which is a thoughtful touch and makes it feel more bookish -as.”
Let’s be honest: You deserve a break. The Omni Series TV is here to help – and it has an integrated hands-free Alexa voice assistant. So you can say things like “Alexa, turn on the TV” without having to touch anything. And, with a $130 discount, this price is a total steal.

Access videos, TV shows, movies or news with Prime Video, Hulu, NBC and more, plus listen to internet radio stations, podcasts and audiobooks via Amazon Music, Spotify and Audible. And how’s this for a bonus: You’ll also get an Echo Show 5 with this purchase!
“I love the digital post-it note feature. You just say ‘Alexa, make a post-it note’ and tell it what you want it to say and it sticks it together with your widgets,” said one satisfied customer. “You can also go into art mode and choose from many pre-installed parts, or let it cycle through artwork. …Overall, I love this unit and will be buying more to install throughout the house. This is a home run .”
