Here at wtg we believe essentially everyone should take advantage of the virtually unbeatable prices available via Amazon Prime.
- Ring Video Doorbell + Echo Dot for $70 ($80 off): Amazon has a lot of its own devices on sale, but we particularly like Ring’s easy setup and its Neighbors app, which lets you keep track of crime or safety issues happening in your neighborhood.
- Sonicare Smart Toothbrush for $196 ($84 off): We thought that a drinking glass was a pretty classy way to charge and store your electric toothbrush.
- Black+Decker Cordless Vacuum for $28 ($7 off): Fun fact: Black+Decker partnered with NASA to build dustbusters on the onboard shuttles for the Apollo missions!
- iRobot Roomba 690 Robot Vacuum for $230 ($145 off): iRobot’s mid-tier robot vacuum hasn’t been updated for a while, but its navigation software is still tops. At this price, it’s a no-brainer if you want an autonomous vacuum.
- August Smart Lock Pro for $161 ($69 off): We found August’s smart lock to be an easy way to ditch our keys, but it’s better with the Wi-Fi bridge.
- TP-Link Kasa Mini Smart Plug for $15 ($7 off): Smart plugs are an easy, affordable way to make your home more energy-efficient. I (Adrienne) have these simple plugs to turn off everything at my desk.
- AncestryDNA Genetic Ethnicity Test for $49 ($50 off): We’re skeptical about consumer genetics companies, but they can be quite enlightening, and this is a pretty great deal. Ancestry is our favorite DNA kit for finding relatives and exploring the history of your genes. The downside is that the company will try to upsell you on many extra services it offers. Just say no to most or all of them.
- 23andMe Health & Ancestry Kit for $100 ($100 off): There are always privacy concerns when you send DNA in for testing. Still, 23andMe is the best test we’ve tried for getting health information and fun traits and other info. It can tell you if you’re possibly genetically prone to fun things like hating cilantro and a few serious conditions—though the test isn’t thorough, so you’re not in the clear if you pass. The DNA matching and ancestry services are starting to become useful. The best part about 23andMe is that it doesn’t upsell you. It makes its money by asking you if you’ll consent to answer questions or have your DNA used in medical studies. You can say no.
- Tile Pro 2-Pack With Replaceable Battery for $35 ($25 off):I would never leave my house if it weren’t for Tiles. I put them on everything—wallet, fanny pack, keys—and replaceable batteries were a long time coming. This deal starts Monday evening.
- Furbo Dog Camera for $135 ($64 off): We thought this was an easy, simple way to keep track of your pets while you’re at work or traveling.
- Petcube Bites 2 for $199 ($50 off): This brand-new pet camera just arrived. I haven’t had a chance to test it yet, but it has built-in Alexa, full room view, and night vision.
