Amazon’s smart thermostat stunner is on sale at its best price to date

Amazon Prime Day is back, honey! OK, maybe not technically speaking, but so many Amazon devices are currently discounted at Best Buy and other retailers that it’s giving us a great sense of deja vu. Right now, for example, you can buy Amazon’s excellent smart thermostat at Best Buy and Target for just $ 41.99 ($ ​​18 off), a low record set on Prime Day.

The inexpensive thermostat fits most furnishings and can even learn and adapt to your habits as more expensive options. Keep in mind, however, that you can’t integrate the device with voice assistants other than Alexa, and there are no native temperature sensors. However, if these warnings don’t bother you, Amazon’s smart thermostat is a great option to consider, which could potentially help you save on energy bills. Read our review.

Developed in collaboration with Resideo, Amazon Smart Thermostat allows you to control the temperature of your home via Alexa voice commands and remotely via an app.

Some of Amazon’s smart displays and speakers are also back on sale today, despite the latest Prime Day. If you’re looking for a smaller smart speaker, you can currently buy the fourth-generation spherical Echo Dot for $ 19.99 instead of $ 49.99 at Best Buy and Target. The latest model may have launched in 2020, but it still sounds great for its size and lets you set alarms, control various smart home devices, and perform a variety of tasks with just your voice.

Amazon Echo Dot (4th generation)

The 2020 Echo Dot features a more spherical design than a real dot, but it can still do all the things Alexa does with other Echo models.

If you prefer a smart display that you can watch movies on and use to search for recipes, Best Buy also sells the second-generation Echo Show 5 for $ 34.99 instead of $ 84.99, as does Target. The small 5.5-inch display makes a great bedside alarm clock, particularly because you can use it to quickly check the time and postpone it with a simple touch.

If you prefer something bigger, however, you can also buy 2019’s 8-inch Echo Show 8 at Best Buy for $ 54.99 ($ ​​55 off). The older display sounds even better than the second generation Echo Show 5 and comes with a built-in shutter to lock the camera. Sure, the 2019 model still comes with a paltry 1MP camera and slower processor than the latest Echo Show 8, but it’s still an Alexa-powered smart display that’s suitable for the kitchen or living room.

Amazon Echo Show 5 (2nd generation)

Amazon’s Echo Show 5 is an ideal smart display for a nightstand. You can set alarms with Alexa using your voice, play music, control smart displays, get a weather report, and more. When the alarm goes off, simply tap the top of the Echo Show 5 to snooze it.

Amazon Echo Show 8 (1st generation)

The latest generation of the Echo Show 8 is Amazon’s mid-sized smart display. It features a sharp 8-inch screen and most of the features found on the second-generation model, however it lacks the latter’s 13MP camera and fast performance.

Somehow, we are already approaching the start of a new school year. And if you’re a college student who needs a powerful Apple laptop that’s ideal for content creation, the 14-inch MacBook Pro is available today to My Best Buy members for the lowest price to date.

Regularly $ 1,999, you can buy MacBook Pro in Space Gray with 16GB of RAM, an eight-core M1 Pro processor, and 512GB of storage for $ 1,699. The 14-inch machine offers an impressive selection of ports and Grade A performance, battery life that surpasses most other laptops we’ve seen, and a beautiful Mini LED display – something that even the new MacBook Air M2 doesn’t have. Note that My Best Buy is the retailer’s free rewards program, distinct from Best Buy’s TotalTech premium service. Read our review.
