Recommendation of AWS development kit hardware (below USD $120) with no extra cost


I am new to IoT, I want to add it to my skill set for future job search. I am well-versed in embedded software and system. I just plan to play around a bit, using it at personal level (super low usage), thus I'm looking for IoT platform that has free tier for super low usage.

I have decided to go with AWS platform for IoT. There are so many development kit (hardware) to choose from. I really like Renesas RX65N AWS Cloud Kit. It's reasonably priced (USD $62.50), comes with Wi-Fi and sensors. Instruction is very clear and straightforward. However, I found that their compiler is only free for 60 days. It's pretty costly to buy the compiler, $380.

Is there a reasonably priced development kit (such as Renesas RX65N AWS Cloud Kit) that doesn't incur extra cost - i.e.: offers free tools or use open source compiler?
