It’s feels a little bizarre to buy Amazon’s first partygadgets from Best Buy, but they’re offering some legitimately great deals on the Fire TV Stick, the entry-level Kindle e-reader, and a bunch of Kindle Fire tablets today.

If you’re planning to build a new PC, or even just upgrade your existing rig, Amazon just posted great deals on a variety or peripherals, PC parts, storage, and networking gear to get you started. Just remember that this is a Gold Box deal, so these prices are only valid today, or until sold out. [Amazon]

Ultimate Ears’ MEGABOOM Bluetooth speaker is the supersized, waterproof version of the best Bluetooth speaker on the market, and you can save $30 on yours today in a variety of colors, which is the first deal we’ve ever seen. [UE MEGABOOM Wireless Bluetooth Speaker, $270]

Though not part of today’s Amazon Gold Box, this TP-Link 802.11ac wireless router has terrific reviews, and is down to its lowest price today. [TP-LINK Archer C9 AC1900 Dual Band Wireless AC Gigabit Router, $130]

And if you have a little more to spend, the “upside down roach” of wireless routers comes with a 1TB external hard drive for just $2 extra today, as part of the aforementioned Gold Box deal. [NETGEAR R8000 and Seagate 1TB Portable Hard Drive, $280]

If you’ve been waiting for an excuse to start or expand your Philips’ color-shifting Hue lighting collection, Amazon’s offering a great deal on spare bulbs today. All you have to do is pick any two Hue bulbs from four available models, and your total price at checkout will get marked down to $100. [Philips Hue Bulb Sale]

Note: These bulbs won’t work without a Philips Hue bridge, which you can get in various Hue starter kits.

If you’ve spent any time in fancy cocktail bars, you’ve probably noticed that many of them serve drinks with a single, huge sphere of ice. Why do they do this? Well, mostly because it looks really cool, but it also dilutes your drink less quickly, which is important when it costs $14 plus tip.

Luckily, you can make these ice balls at home yourself, and a set of two molds that will last for years costs less than a Old Fashioned at your neighborhood bar. [Tovolo Sphere Ice Mold 2-Pack, $9]

Update: Sold out

Need some reading material to tide you over this summer? The first seven books of the insanely popular Outlander series are only $2 on Kindle right now. That’s $2 for all seven, not $2 each. [Outlander: Books 1-7 (Kindle), $2]

It’s no secret that Amazon’s Fire Phone has been a flop. But considering that it started out at $650 unlocked, today’s deal on the handset might just be enough to move a few more units.

Today only, you can get the Fire Phone unlocked for just $169, which is within $10 of an all-time low. Admittedly, that’s still a decent chunk of change, but consider what else it comes with:

So really, you’d be paying about a $50 premium for the phone itself. Even if it’s not your daily driver, you could do a lot worse than to keep it around as a backup if your main phone ever breaks. Or, you could use it as some kind of Amazon-centric iPod Touch. Or pop in a prepaid T-Mobile or AT&T SIM card to test out their signal in your area, if you’re interested in switching. What I’m saying is, there are plenty of ways you could put an extra phone to use, and at this price, it might be worth a look. [Amazon Fire Phone, $169]

If people have been stealing your food out of the office fridge, or you just want to keep a couple drinks cold at the beach, this flexible lunch box is basically made out of ice packs.

KMASHI’s cheap battery packs are some of the most popular items we’ve ever posted, and their well-reviewed 15,000mAh model is down to just $14 today, an all-time low.
