Unlock an extra 20% discount with trade-in

Want to upgrade to the latest streaming kit from Amazon? There's never been a better time to switch to something new, thanks to a superb deal for those willing to part with their old Fire TV Stick.

Amazon has slashed prices across its Fire TV Stick line-up — with discounts of up to 33% available.

But don't head to the checkout yet as Amazon is offering a clever way to supercharge that discount. The US shopping giant will cut an extra 20% off the sale price if you send an old Fire TV Stick back to the company.

It's a decent discount, although Amazon will offer you even more if you're willing to part with an old Amazon Echo smart speaker.

Yes, if you have an ageing Fire TV Stick or Fire TV Cube that's starting to run a little slow and you'd like to exchange for something new, Amazon will supercharge discounts across all current Fire TV models. Even if your Fire TV kit is broken, it will still be eligible to trade-in, Amazon says.

With the maximum 20% trade-in discount — plus the 33% price cut in the sale, you can bag the Fire TV Stick 4K for roughly £32. That's a huge discount to the RRP of £59.99.

Fire TV Stick offers access to some of the biggest streamers, catch-up services, and apps available with its Alexa-powered software


Amazon refreshed the Fire TV Stick 4K last year with a speedier processor coupled with 2GB of RAM to unlock a 25% speed boost over the original model, which launched back in 2018. Not only that, but Amazon added support for Wi-Fi 6 — a newer wireless standard with faster speeds and improved reliability.

While Fire TV Stick 4K enjoys the biggest discount — a whopping 53% off with both offers combined — there are deals available across every model of Fire TV Stick. Amazon offers the ability to spread the cost of your purchase over five monthly payments interest-free to make things even more affordable.

These are the steps to trade-in a Fire TV device on Amazon:

  1. Select any eligible device(s) linked to your Amazon account or search for the model if bought elsewhere
  2. Answer questions about the condition of your device(s) to receive a trade-in quote
  3. Even non-working devices will be eligible
  4. Print a shipping label and send your device(s) for free
  5. Amazon will verify the condition within 3 days after its engineers take delivery of the device
  6. Once your trade-in is complete, you'll receive a limited-time discount towards a new Fire TV Stick
  7. Not only that, but a bonus £2.99 gift card will be applied to your account

Here's the list of Fire TV devices included in the sale —

Fire TV Stick Lite

Looking for the most affordable way to bring the Fire TV experience to your television? The Fire TV Stick Lite is the ideal model for you. This entry-level dongle plugs directly into the HDMI port and unlocks dozens of streaming services, catch-up apps, and games from the Amazon store. Everything is available to watch in High Definition.

Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote

The next model in the line-up arrives with an Alexa Voice Remote, so you can use the chatty AI assistant to launch streaming apps, find shows from a particular director, control playback, and more. Streaming quality is still limited to 1080p HD, but there is support for Dolby Atmos too.

Fire TV Stick 4K

This second-generation Fire TV Stick 4K was unveiled last year, with support for Wi-Fi 6 for improved wireless streaming, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos picture and sound quality, and a 25% speed boost, thanks to the new chipset and 2GB of RAM. You'll also find the Alexa Voice Remote included in the box.

Fire TV Stick 4K Max

Want to future-proof your streaming with a little more speed? Fire TV Stick 4K Max is all about raw power, with support for the latest Wi-Fi 6E wireless standard, 40% more processing power than the standard Fire TV Stick 4K, and twice as much storage too. It's also the first model to support the new Fire TV Ambient Experience, which displays over 2,000 pieces of museum-quality art and photography when your telly is not in-use.

Amazon Fire TV Cube

This top-of-the-line device combines the functionality of a Fire TV Stick and an Echo Dot, so you'll be able to use hands-free voice commands with Alexa. The smart assistant can change channels, control playback, load up apps and games, as well as answer general knowledge queries, control smart home devices, set timers, add items to your calendar, and more without touching your remote control.
