Acer Chromebook 15 gets 1-day deal

Today’s Acer Gold Box is jam-packed with deals at Amazon, but one particularly notable offer is the Acer Chromebook 15 at $240. Regularly $320 or more, this is a new Amazon all-time low and the best price we can find. Features include a 15-inch 1080p display, 4GB of RAM and 32GB worth of internal storage. Check out the entire sale here for more deals on monitors, keyboards, and other Acer accessories.

Emerson’s Smart Thermostat hits the best price of 2019

Amazon offers the Emerson Sensi Wi-Fi Thermostat on sale for $89 shipped. Normally $100 or more, this is the lowest price we’ve tracked in 2019 and beats our last mention by $6. Not only will you get HomeKit compatibility here, but also Alexa and Assistant, giving you full voice control no matter what ecosystem you use. With warm weather here, this is a great way to automate your air conditioning and save some cash along the way.

Samsung 860 EVO SSD hits new all-time low

Newegg offers the Samsung 860 QVO 1TB 2.5 Inch Internal Solid State Drive for $89.99. Normally selling for $114, earlier this week Amazon and Newegg dropped it to around $100. Samsung’s SSD boasts up 550MBps sequential transfer speeds and utilizes V-NAND Flash Memory to offer 1TB of storage in a more affordable price point. Even though it is a more budget-conscious SSD, it features the same build quality as Samsung’s higher-end models

Logitech’s Harmony Remote + Hub gets discount to $54

Amazon is offering the Logitech Harmony Smart Control + Hub for $53.98 shipped. That’s $16 off the going rate found at other retailers and is lowest Amazon offer we’ve tracked in 2019. This universal remote is capable of working with IR set top boxes, game consoles, TVs, and more. The included hub pairs with smartphones and allows you to control your home theater gear without needing to fumble for a remote. Since the hub communicates with your devices, you won’t need to be in IR range when controlling it from a smartphone.

Have Assistant control TP-Link’s Kasa Color LED Bulb at $25

Amazon offers the TP-Link Kasa KL130 Multicolor Smart Light Bulb for $25. Normally selling for $30 or more, that saves you 18% and is the second-lowest price we’ve seen all-time on a single bulb at Amazon. This multicolor light integrates with the rest of TP-Link’s Kasa smart home accessories. That means it works without a hub, can be controlled via your phone as well a Alexa or Assistant, and more. And with the ability to alter its color, this is a great option for setting the mood or adding some ambiance to your space.
