Fire TV Stick with TV voice remote: $30 (save $10)

Sarah Tew/CNET

If you prefer an Alexa-compatible video streamer (versus Roku, below), the updated Fire TV Stick is right up your alley. That model is discounted by 25% today. It includes the newer, improved remote control that offers voice recognition (if you don’t already have a standalone Echo speaker) and TV power/volume control. But if you want the 4K version, you’ll need to spend $10 more.

Roku Express for $29.88

Sarah Tew/CNET

Roku and Amazon have a boatload of video streamers available in the under-$50 price range. But if $30 is your cutoff, this entry-level Roku is your go-to choice. It delivers pretty much every video service you can think of, from Netflix to Hulu to countless more obscure apps, as well as the free-with-ads Roku Channel, too. You’ll be hard-pressed to find more entertainment for your TV at this price.

Anker PowerCore Fusion battery pack for $26

Anker

This handy Anker 5,000-mAh battery pack is about the size of a MacBook power supply, and it can charge two USB-powered devices simultaneously. Best of all, it doubles as a wall charger, and the AC prongs fold up for easy travel. It’s now available in white and lipstick red for $30, too.

There are plenty of cheap smart plugs out there, but the Belkin WeMo Mini is one of the few at this price that deliver the hat trick: compatibility with Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple’s Siri (HomeKit). In other words, this plug will smarten up any lamp in your home, regardless of which digital assistant you’re using.

If you prefer Google Assistant to Alexa, Google’s very own — and very capable — mini smart speaker is back to its full price of $49 if you purchase one. But buy two, and you’ll get $20 off each. That’s two for $58 total.
