1. Save 20%: This entry-level smart speaker
The Echo Dot is a best-seller through and through for its versatility and awesome features: We even included this entry-level device in our roundup of the best Amazon Echo smart speakers on the market. Between its less than $50 price point and the easy-to-use Bluetooth connectivity, it will give you decent bang for your buck. Sure, you'll sacrifice a bit of sound quality, but you can stream songs from a slew of music apps, including Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music and more, for a fraction of the cost of other smart home speakers. You can use the voice control to ask Alexa to play music, answer questions, or, if you have other smart Amazon devices in your home, command them to dim the lights or change the temperature. Right now, the Echo Dot, usually $49.99, is on sale for $39.99 but Amazon Prime members can snag two for $39.98 when they enter code DOTPRIME2PK at checkout.
2. 35% off: This top-rated USB-C adapter
USB-C imports are slowly becoming more popular than your run-of-the-mill USBs. If you haven’t picked one up yet, check out this USB-C to HDMI cable that’s on sale: Once $19.99, the site has dropped the price down to $9.99, and you can save an extra .50 with the additional 5% coupon below the price to drop it to $9.49. It’s garnered a 4.4-star rating from more than 19,500 (!) Amazon shoppers, who were thrilled with the top-quality construction. One buyer wrote that it was “sturdy and high-quality,” while another said that they “couldn’t ask for a better quality adapter.”

While we’ve yet to test out these Jabra Elite 85h wireless headphones, we’re big fans of the brand, with other models receiving high marks in our roundups for the best wireless headphones, the best headphones for the gym and more. Once $249.99, these babies are currently on sale for $199.99, giving you $50 in savings.
