Did you end up buying anything or Amazon Prime Day? #amazonprime #amazonprimeday
The Amazon Echo was a tempting treat but the Echo Tap won out just because it was more portable. A few wifi plugs coming up for review and testing on the Sulit Blog!
A few days before the sale, you could get the refurbished Echo Dots including promos that bring it down to $29each! Several deals to be had.. especially if you ordered thru Alexa, some give $10 less. Training everyone to shop by Voice and if 1click shopping is activated, shopping becomes a breeze! There are some deals that go fast.. literally minutes.. some last 5 hours.. but others deals last up to 24 hours…talk about pressure to shop! 😉
The Winner on our shopping list! Amazon Tap
Another Deal we discovered is the VAUX Cordless Home Speaker + Portable Battery for Amazon Echo Dot Gen 2 available in Black or Carbon by Ninety7 Inc. Is this same as the Echo Tap? not really.. the connection to the Echo dot is by a Jack and not wireless thus giving out better quality sound.
One of the other deals we tried! Home Automation.. simple but thats that the place to start.. just a warning to those that plan to start, check voltage of the plugs your buy some of them are rated to be used in the US only and have 110V ratings.. you need to find the ones that take 220V for countries like the Philippines. Some of the plugs are said to be very energy efficient that they can lower your monthly electrical bill but they cost more and come with their own energy monitoring apps! The cost does justify bringing them in and you will hear more about them when they arrive
So tempted to get a thermostat but the nest home learning thermostat is so steep, studying alternatives that may go on sale!
One of the best deals you will get .. Amazon Prime Membership, it opens more doors to deals and discovery. This is not a paid promotion.. just excited to share something sulit! 😉
