DEAL: Amazon Echo is $40 Off Today, Echo Dot is $10 Off

Amazon dropped the price of the Amazon Echo and Echo Dot today to $139.99 and $39.99, respectively. That’s a solid $40 discount on the bigger Echo and $10 off the already reasonably priced Echo Dot.

I’m not sure I need to explain for the 20th time what each does, so I’ll try to keep this short. Echo products from Amazon are like smart home voice control boxes, but the bigger Echo includes a decent-sounding speaker too for tune listening. Each device is good for ordering stuff from Amazon, getting news or weather or sports scores, setting timers and alarms, playing music from popular streaming services, playing games (like Jeopardy!), and more. They are very much a more seasoned Google Home because they have been around a lot longer.

If interested, these are the best prices you’ll find and we aren’t sure how long they will last. With that in mind, Amazon is showing some pretty delayed shipping times. However, a handful of additional retailers are selling these at the same prices, with Xmas-approve shipping.

DEAL: Samsung 256GB EVO Select MicroSD Card Drops to $159 Today ($40 Off)

Samsung is still one of the few companies making 256GB microSD cards and it just so happens that they have discounted their best today on Amazon. The 256GB Samsung EVO Select microSD card has just $159.99, which is a $40 discount from its normal $200 price.

While not cheap, this is storage that should last you for years, or will at least hold the majority of your music collection. Plus, you are looking at 95MB/s transfer speeds and also speeds fast enough for handling 4K video shoots.

The deal is for a limited time and does include Prime shipping.

DEAL: ASUS OnHub Router Drops to $89.99 at Amazon ($110 Off)

This may be last minute, but I think we’ve found the Cyber Monday deal of the day over at Amazon. The ASUS OnHub, Google’s Nexus-like take on a WiFi router that likely helped birth the idea behind Google WiFi, can be yours for just $89.99. That’s $110 off.

What is OnHub? It really is like the Nexus of routers in that Google created this smart WiFi platform, but had other people build the hardware. In this case, it was ASUS, but TP-Link also created one for Google. These routers are controlled via app, are dead simple in terms of control and setup, offer help and solutions when thinks get wonky with your internet, get smarter with automatic software updates, can automate parts of your home through IFTTT, and will work with Google WiFi units to turn your home into the ultimate mesh WiFi network.  (more…)
