$20 is really cheap for the 2016 Roku Stick (3600R, which it appears this is). Between this and the sales everywhere, I wonder if they're going to release a new stick this year after all (everything else got replaced earlier, but the stick was newer).

  Super easy.  It will let your current month run out.  I've used it on/off when there's something specific I wanted to watch.

Was going to get the Roku Stick at Target today with extra 15% off, but this deal is better especially with the Amex $5 off $15 offer. Thanks.

rated:
Service starts as soon as you order. WTH? It starts and I don't yet have my Roku stick to watch. Grrrr !!

rated:
Thanks OP. Just waiting for shipment notification.

  Is there an AMEX offer that I just didn't get, or is the $5 off just for using my Amex card?
found my answer... 3 cards and no offer for me 😡
In anyways... Thanks OP

  If you have Windows 7 or higher, there is a free app you can get. Here are the other options as you await your Roku

I have offer on Amex Bluebird but cannot use the card to complete the transaction because Sling "doesn't accept prepaid cards".

Deal is still going tonight Dec 2, I just got one.
Very nice deal for a second tv, $21.08 shipped.

I ordered on Nov 29 and the Roku has not shipped yet according to the "order is being processed" email I received. Did anyone actually get their Roku yet?

rated:
You also get 2 months of Showtime, Hulu and CBS with a new Roku.

  Ordered on Nov 28, got shipping notice email on Dec 1. Expected arrival on Dec 5.

rated:
Ordered on Friday, says I should be getting the Roku stick on Wednesday this week. I hope it's all what it says it is!

The promo is still on, but instead of a Roku Streaming Stick 3600R ($50 retail, on sale for $35 at Staples, for example) they have a Roku Express 3700R ($36 retail, on sale for $30 at Roku) when you subscribe for $20 (1 month). They still have the Roku Premiere+ ($90 at Staples) 50% off for 3mo prepaid ($60) and the Apple TV for $89 with 3mo prepaid.

The Express offer isn't as good a deal as the Stick was, though $20 is still less than retail.

=aw

rated:
I'm not sure if I did something wrong but I signed up for the $25/month plan and got the $5 credit from Amex. My ROKU showed up today and it's the Premier 4K box, not a TV stick. I'm pretty sure I didn't sign up for a 3 month plan (which gets you a TV box for 50% off).

rated:
Same thing happened to me. Signed up for the 1 month Orange plan and ordered the stick. Was charged for the stick. Double checked on their site and my CC company. Roku sent me a brand new Roku Premier by mistake. 

rated:
this kind of deal I love
 

rated:
I wonder if they ran out of Sticks and started sending Premieres as a stop-gap. The offer is now for an Express (retail value = $30, though Staples charges $36).

=aw

rated:
That's what I'm thinking. Funny thing is. I actually need the stick for a wall mounted TV in the kitchen. Guess I'll sell the Premier on eBay

rated:
I ordered the free Roku Express through sling with 1 month prepay on 12/17. They sent me a Roku Premiere FWIW. Note: Roku Premiere, not Roku Premiere+

rated:
I was kicking myself for not signing up earlier (just because of Express vs Stick), but I went ahead and ordered with the free Express anyway. It's still a bargain even if I only get what I paid for.

Yes. Faster processor, 4K compatible are probably the biggest differences. Only plus for the Express is it has composite output in the unlikely event your TV doesn't have a HDMI port.

 for clarity for all -  note there are two different models - Express and Express+ . only  Roku Express+ has composite output, not the Roku Express

Got the stick . For $15 after Amex it's a great deal. Works fast and well. I also have premiere + on my 4K and can't tell difference in speed but then again I haven't exactly used it for more than just basic watching of Slingplayer, plex, etc

rated:
I am signed up for direcTV Now, which is, to say the least, somewhat buggy. I also got Sling TV for $15 (with Amex offer), for just one month so I can use it while DirecTV sorts out their issues and try out roku stick. I already have apple TV (through direcTV Now offer) and latest Fire TV player.

Anyone can suggest what I can do with Roku?

Can someone also confirm that we get 2 months free of showtime with new roku stick?

Thanks.

rated:
Yes, there is a 2 month trial for Showtime. https://www.roku.com/offers/showtime

The fine print says you have to activate the Roku by 1/14 and start the subscription from the Showtime channel on Roku by 1/21 and be billed through the payment method you set for Roku (if you continue beyond the trial period). You can see all the other current free Roku offers at https://www.roku.com/offers

My Roku Premiere came from Sling by Priority Mail. A friend's Roku device just shipped from Sling and it went First Class Package. I'm wondering if that means it's lighter and thus might be an Express rather than a Premiere (offer was for an Express). They'll know Monday.

  1) Remote is radio instead of IR
2) Has an SD card port.

Faster CPU too, I think. Roku has an good PDF comparing all products. It's linked from this page (click "compare all products" and a PDF should open). https://www.roku.com/products

  Priority mail means it's a premiere. 1st class means it's a stick or express. The premiere can't be shipped 1st class because it weighs too much.

I got a Stick and canceled after about two weeks.  Have a second on the way.  Many testimonials over at Slickdeals, if you're bored.
