- Portable Bluetooth Speaker $10-15
In addition to the Best Buy deals posted over the last couple days, here are more hot deals from Best Buy.
Requires an electrician to install, because there is a risk of electrical shock and harm when touching electrical wires.
Call an electrician if you are unsure how to safely replace a light switch.
Unlike lightpads by Lutron, Zigbee, Z-Wave, and Insteon, no special wifi router is required.
Works with a regular wifi router (or Wireless Access Point).
The Wemo does not support 3-way lighting.
A more expensive Plum Lightpad supports 3-way configurations, also works with Alexa and Google Voice, works with regular Wifi routers as well, and glows in the dark when someone is nearby.
Why smart lightpads are useful?
Install in your bedroom along with a Google Voice or Amazon Alexa, then you can say, "turn off the bedroom light" without getting out of bed.
Install throughout your home, use the included app (or voice control speaker), and turn all lights on/off without having to walk to each light switch.
- 50" 1080p TV for $280 (expired: price raised to $300)
Insignia 50-inch LED-backlit LCD 1080p HDTV for $280 today.
Normally, a 50-inch TV sells for at least $350.
1080p is being phased out on 50+ inch TVs, because manufacturers can sell 4K (2160p) screens at higher prices.
4K screens have more of a "wow" appeal when looking at the picture quality close-up, but most people do not watch TV close-up.
There is a chart in Section 2 of a Cnet article that insists viewers would need to be 5-feet from a 50-inch screen to notice the difference between 1080p and 4K.
Plus, most people do not have 4K video to play on their TV (most cable services provide 1080p video).
So, if you're looking for a deal on a big screen TV today, this is a great price on a 50" TV with good reviews.
Kindle 6" eReader in Black or White for $50.
Available at Amazon for delivery, and Target or Best Buy with in-store pickup.
The Kindle serves one function- reading eBooks on a lightweight, thin screen with super long battery life (1+ week per charge).
Unlike a phone or tablet, the Kindle does not emit light.
This means staring at the screen will cause less eyestrain than a phone or tablet, especially in dark rooms.
Also, the Kindle's plastic screen does not reflect light, making the Kindle easier to see outside in the sunshine.
- Seagate 4TB External/Desktop hard Drive for $70
