An Amazon Prime subscription costs $99 per year, and covers the cost of free shipping on millions of items, access to online music, TV show, and video streaming, and a handful of other benefits. But if you buy Amazon’s Fire Phone you get a 1-year Prime membership at no additional cost once you activate the phone.

Amazon used to sell the phone for $449, which might have been a tough sell for a device that gets mixed reviews, at best. Recently the price dropped to $199, and right now Amazon is offering the Fire Phone for $169.

But we can do better — because you can pick up a Fire Phone from QualityCellz for just $140. That’s like paying $99 for a Prime membership and getting a phone that you can use as a media player, if nothing else, for just $41.

You can also install CyanogenMod on the phone if you hate Amazon’s software.

  1. The value of the Fire Phone assumes you take advantage of
    the Amazon ecosystem. Otherwise, the Prime membership is
    a wasted expense.

    Also, the Fire Phone has significant shortcomings including
    no microSD storage, awful user interface, lack of Google
    Play store access. For now, its biggest draw to me is
    its many LTE bands, although the new Moto X
    appears to surpass it (and even equal the Apple iPhone 6) in
    flexibility (the 2015 gen 3 Moto X, which comes unlocked,
    appears to work with all 4 major US carriers, just like the
    iPhone 6, and may even work globally). Plus, the Moto X
    has real Android and the Google Play store, even if it
    lacks a microSD slot.

    As the Fire Phone ages, you’ll likely see it offered on deal
    web sites, at fire sale prices (pun intended), without the
    baggage/”benefit” of the Prime subscription.

    Offered at $99 new, the Fire Phone may sell out just like the
    HP Palm OS tablet. At that price, I may still not be interested.
