In a new Back to School sale, Amazon is discounting several of its own hardware. That includes its line of Fire TV streaming devices, like the 4K Fire TV Stick which is $10 off right now at $39.99. But if you’re in the market for a cheap 4K TV with a built-in streaming hub, Amazon’s smart TVs are on sale as well.

50-inch versions of both Toshiba and Insignia Fire TV Edition 4K TVs are $100 off at Amazon, and include a free Echo Dot (3rd generation.) Those 4K TVs aren’t the most powerful on the market, but they’re solid starter sets, and perfect for dorm rooms.

Amazon is also offering a bundle for the new Switch Lite console, due out on Sept. 20. The bundle includes one of Sandisk’s official Switch microSD cards (which is just a microSD card with Nintendo branding.) The bundle starts at $214.01, which is the cost of the Switch Lite plus a discounted 64 GB microSD card. Those microSD cards are also on sale on their own, so you can save money on extra Switch storage even if you’re not picking up a Switch Lite.

Plus, pre-orders for the Switch version of Dragon Quest 11: Echoes of an Elusive Age are discounted by $10 (for everyone, not just Prime members,) PowerA’s wireless GameCube-style controller is back down to $36.99, and several of the Lego Star Wars 20th Anniversary sets are on sale.

And if you’re looking for even more gaming deals, most of our exclusive codes are valid through the end of the month.
