55% Off Echo Dot, 3rd Generation
The most popular Amazon smart speaker is nearly half off right now. A sleek and compact design is perfect for any nightstand or desk. Alexa can help out with anything: setting alarms and timers, asking questions about the weather or news and even helping you control other smart devices in your home such as lights, thermostats and door alarms.
50% Off Kindle Paperwhite
The best e-reader on the market. After several generations of the kindle, the Paperwhite is by far one of the best reading devices especially since the new iteration is water proof, lighter than ever and pretty thin. Each Kindle is equipped with either 8 GB or 32 GB of storage depending on price.
55% Off Kindle Kids Edition
Any parent knows that a kid’s tablet is really a gift for the whole family. What better way to get your kid into reading than by letting them do it on a smart device? The Kindle Kids Edition is perfect because it’s purpose-built for reading, with no distracting games, ads or videos. With the included year of Amazon Kids+, your kid can also get introduced to hundreds of new children’s titles if they’re starting to get bored with their at-home library. Or you can download their tried-and-true favorites that they still aren’t sick of yet. Pair it with a Kindle cover to keep it safe from spills or falls.
Ring Video Doorbell (25% Off)
Enhance your home security with the Ring doorbell, which uses 1080p HD video that lets you see, hear and speak to anyone from your phone. Updates from the original Ring doorbell include motion detection, privacy zones, audio privacy and crisper night vision.
