#1: Your Favorite Travel Pillow
Unlike cheaper travel pillows that you have to inflate with air, the Evolution is made of memory foam, and wraps all the way around your neck to provide support no matter what direction your head falls when you nod off. You won’t win any fashion awards while you’re using it, but you won’t care, because you’ll be asleep.
These pillows almost never go on sale, so if you have any holiday travel plans on the horizon, you won’t want to miss out on this one.
#2: A Smart Thermostat Bundle
While the Nest would beat it in a beauty contest, this Sensi thermostat has most of the same smart features in a more traditional body, and it’s a hell of a lot cheaper.
One of the most notable of those smart features is Alexa support; if there’s an Amazon Echo in range, you can change your home’s temperature with nothing but your voice. For a limited time, you can get the Sensi and an Echo Dot for just $108, which is $71 less than buying them separately, and somewhat incredibly, $21 less than buying the thermostat by itself.
#3: The Ultimate Self-Haircut Tool
If you’re enough of a daredevil to give yourself a haircut, Remington’s Shortcut Pro makes the process as simple as possible.
For $38, the Shortcut Pro can run for 40 minutes on its built-in lithium-ion battery, and includes nine different length combs to customize your look. And unlike most electric trimmers, it’s shaped like a puck, rather than a wand, which makes it much easier to maneuver around the back of your own head.I still think you’d have to be a lunatic to use this thing, but it’s proven to be extremely popular with our readers.
#4: Logitech Harmony
The Logitech Harmony Ultimate has just about every feature you could ever ask for in a universal remote, and then some, and Amazon’s offering it up for an all-time low $140 today, about $80-$100 less than usual.
The Harmony Ultimate can control 15 of your favorite devices (from a database of 270,000), including ones hiding behind cabinet doors. Its touchscreen gives you quick access to your favorite settings, and it can even control smart home devices like your Philips Hue lights, meaning you can create a “Movie” mode that turns on your TV and Blu-ray player, switches your TV to the right input, and dims the lights, all with one push of a button.
The sneaky-great reason to buy this though is the included Harmony Hub. The hub is the thing that actually controls all of your devices, and it doesn’t just work with your remote: It works with your smartphone and Alexa too. That means if you can’t find the remote, or can’t be bothered to get off the couch, you can still control your TV with just your voice. The hub by itself usually sells for about $90, so this bundle adds a powerful remote for only $50.
#5: Patent Prints
These silk screen-printed patent posters would make awesome gifts. With about 50+ posters to check out, they have something for everyone - like a Batmobile, a Gameboy, guitars, and cameras, all available in chalkboard, blue grid, and white grid. At just $15 a piece, it’s hard to not get more than one.
#6: Copper String LIghts
decorative gourd copper string light season, and we are here for it. Get a 20' strand with 60 LEDs and a remote to control it for just $7 with code BXJWREBN.
#7: Aukey’s SonOS Alternative
SONOS pioneered the multi-room audio category, and now Alexa can do it too, but Aukey’s solution looks like a great, affordable alternative.
These AudioLink speakers connect to each other over a 5.8Ghz Wi-Fi connection for multi-room audio, meaning you won’t have to connect them to your home network or fiddle with a bunch of settings.
Each one features dual 10W drivers and two passive subwoofers, so they should be plenty loud. They’re also IPX5 water resistant, meaning you could probably keep one outside. The real kicker though compared to other multi-room setups? They can run off a built-in battery for over seven hours on a charge, so you can rearrange them at will if you’re throwing a party.
#8: Iphone X Screen Protectors
If you’re lucky enough to have an iPhone X arriving in the near future, you’re going to want to keep that screen looking pristine. If you missed the deal earlier this week, Anker’s once again marked down their 2-pack of screen protectors. Get them for $6 with promo code KARAP113.
#9: Bluetooth Smart Scale
We’re getting close to the point where Bluetooth-enabled smart bathroom scales cost about the same as their “dumb” brethren. This one’s $23 in today’s Amazon Gold Box, and its app even ties into Apple HealthKit, so you can keep all of your health data in one place.
The best time to do tree maintenance is after their branches are stripped clean of leaves for the winter, and today’s Amazon Gold Box will ensure you’re properly equipped for all of your sawing needs. Inside, eight different chainsaws and pole saws are marked down to great low prices, including both gas, battery, and extension cord-powered models. Just please, please, please be careful with them.
