Here’s a selection of deals that we like and are already available.
Amazon Echo (4th gen)
Now: $59.99 ($40 off)
A cool new design is just one of the new features in the fourth-generation Echo. It also adds Dolby audio (including lossless support for Amazon Music), a built-in Zigbee smart hub, the ability to sense when people are in the room (to trigger Alexa routines), and support for Sidekick, Amazon’s new low-power neighborhood network for smart devices. No wonder this smart speaker is a favorite of our sister site TechHive.

Now: $49.99 ($50 off)
The second-gen Nest Hub is a perfect bedside companion, now featuring a sleep-tracking, radar-like Soli chip in addition to its nice 7-inch screen, slim design, solid audio quality, and intuitive touch interface.

Samsung Chromebook Plus V2
Now: $272.37 ($227.62 off)
