Belkin Wemo Smart Plug or LIFX Smart Bulb
Lowest By: $10

This week's smartest of deals isn't open to everyone, but the Editors' Choice offer had to be included here: the Belkin Wemo Mini Smart Plug and LIFX A19 60W-Equivalent WiFi Light Bulb are selling for just $10 for Echo owners who've to make a smart home purchase through Alexa. That puts each of these gadgets at at least half the price of any other store today.

2nd-Gen Amazon Echo Dot
Shipping: In-store pickup, or $8.95 s&h
Lowest By: $7
It might not be the newest tech on the market, but this is a great price for the 2nd-generation Echo Dot, and about as cheap as you'll get a smart speaker. It's tied with the price we saw just before the holidays and, if it arrives in time, would allow you to make use of the Echo-only smart deals above (since buying both the bulb and plug at these special prices yields a $24 saving altogether, you can purchase the Dot at Belk and still stand to save!)
Note: A 90-day Amazon warranty applies.
