Today’s New Deals

Make your home the smartest on the block. For a limited time, get 50% off one of the most popular hubs around. It will be your gateway to all kinds of smart functionality to your home, including lights, security, home theater, energy monitoring, and more. It’s a unique and techy way to raise the property value of your home as well.

Officially Licensed HORI Nintendo Switch Wired Controller for $25
Just a friendly reminder that you will no longer have to pay an exorbitant price to have a conventional style controller for the Switch.

Philips Hue White A19 60W Equivalent Smart Bulb Starter Kit for $49.81
This is the lowest price ever on Amazon. Includes the hub and two 60W equivalent light bulbs that can be dimmed via your smartphone. You can attach additional Hue light bulbs to the hub as well. It’s compatible with Amazon Alexa, Apple Homekit, and Google Assistant for voice control.
Bitdefender Total Security 2018 1yr Subscription for only $19.99
This is good for both new activations and renewals. The license can be used on up to 5 PCs. Currently sells for $50 on Amazon (msrp is $80) so this is a fantastic deal and direct from Bitdefender themselves.
Bitdefender is a great option because it runs on auto-pilot most of the time, is extremely unobtrusive, and offers great protection at a pretty competitive price. Unlike most programs that only cover one device for the base subscription, Bitdefender lets you install it on up to five devices, including iOS, Android, and Mac too. Plus it’s got a bunch of useful extras like phishing protection, a file shredder, password manager, ransomware protection, and parental controls too. This is a PCMag Editor’s Choice product.

NongShim Shin Ramyun 4.2oz Noodle Soup (Pack of 20) for $16.23
