I always say that cheap things come to those who wait. Turns out sometimes cheap things come again, because this super popular pre-Super Bowl deal just returned. 

Today only, and while supplies last, Best Buy once again has the Insignia 24-inch LED TV with built-in Fire TV for just $99.99 (plus tax). That's $50 off the regular price.

Roku TVs get all the attention these days, but let's not overlook the Fire TV option. It's arguably just as good, with most of the same streaming apps: Netflix, Hulu, HBO and so on. And you get the benefit of an Alexa-enabled remote, so you can just tell the TV which channel you want.

What's more, Fire TV affords access to various Alexa skills and a huge library of Amazon apps. For example, you could play the excellent party game Quiplash -- something Roku can't do. Granted, a 24-inch screen is a little small for a party game, but you catch my drift. 

The TV itself tops out at 720p (aka 1,366x768-pixel) resolution, meaning it's not ideally suited for computer use. But don't let that "low" resolution dissuade you. At this size, 1080p is overkill.

There's a built-in tuner should you wish to connect an antenna, and three HDMI inputs for things like cable boxes and game consoles. Around 80 Best Buy customers collectively rated this 4.4 stars out of 5.

I think something like this would make a fine addition to a kitchen, den, dorm room, bedroom or anyplace else a bigger TV wouldn't fit.
