DEAL: Amazon Echo Drops to $149 Today Only ($30 Off)

Amazon Echo, a cylindrical Bluetooth speaker that doubles as a semi-assistant for your home, is on sale for today only at $149.99. That’s a $30 discount, in case you were wondering.

Not familiar with Amazon Echo? It’s actually pretty cool. I have one in my kitchen, as does my brother. We both use ours to play music by using voice commands (like “Hey, Alexa, play 90s hip hop.”), ask it for answers to questions we may be having during a conversations, and set timers while cooking this or that. It really is a highly useful tool that can also take care of your media needs when in a pinch.

It does much more than those few things, though. By triggering it with a “Hey, Alexa” command (Why it isn’t “Hey, Echo” is beyond me.), you can also ask it for weather, news, traffic, and sports scores. You can also connect to services like Pandora or iHeartRadio, Philips Hue, SmartThings, and you Google Calendar. You can even shop, by asking it to re-order Prime-eligible products.

Again, it’s $30 off, today only.

Deal: Bluetooth Beanie and Touchscreen Glove Bundle Just $34.99

It’s starting to cool off in most of the country as we approach winter, but that shouldn’t mean you need to disconnect from your phone or music while on the go because of the need to wear gloves or a hat. Thanks to a deal in the DL Deals Store, you can not only keep that head and those hands warm, but you can do so while staying a fully capable tech junkie.

The deal is for a beanie and gloves bundle, where the beanie is Bluetooth equipped from the folks at TRNDlabs and the gloves have touchscreen compatible fingertips, along with a gripping material to prevent phone slips.

The beanie is a classic black beanie, but inside you get speakers built-in where it would sit over your ears for listening to music or taking calls. It also has simple controls, 33-foot connectivity, and 60-hour standby time or 6 hours of continuous use. The gloves are double-layered and should help keep those tips warm throughout the next few months.

The deal is only live for another couple of hours, so act fast.
