1. Samsung JS8500 55" 4K 3D 120Hz LED SUHD LED Smart HDTV w/ HDR Support + $400 Dell Gift Card $1,499.99 (Originally $2,999.97)
It used to be that a top of the line TV would cost you thousands of dollars. Today, Dell has a sleek 55" Samsung JS8500 SUHD TV which is one of their highest rated models and second only to their flagship: The JS900. These two TVs support the latest HDR technology, use the same 4K 120Hz panel, and an 8-core processor for a silky smooth experience and excellent 4K upscaling. The only difference is the JS9000 costs around $2,000 and has a curved panel which frankly not everyone wants. Plus this deal includes a $400 Dell gift card which is more than enough to cover the cost of a Playstation 4, sound system or even a laptop. The price is so good that it is actually cheaper than low tiered Samsung TVs.
The home monitoring system of the future is here and integrates not only a video surveillance feed, but monitors everything from the temperature and air quality, or can set off a loud 90-dB siren and directly contact the police, fire or an ambulance for whatever the situation requires. The system learns and adapts to your home and will able to detect things out of the ordinary and alert you. Best of all it is easy to set-up and has no monitoring costs you typically see with other home security systems, including 12-hours of free cloud storage.
This comfortable curved band goes beyond just tracking steps. It measures your heart rate, uses GPS to track your bike rides or runs and monitors your sleep quality. It takes all this data, analyzes it and gives you recommendations that you can take action to make improvements to your health which takes it a step beyond other fitness trackers. Dell not only matches the low price of $175 but tops it off by giving you a $25 gift card to use. Getting a fitness tracker with GPS and continuous heart rate tracking usually pushes you in the $200 to $250 range.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 is the long awaited flagship Android phone expected to save Samsung after a mediocre release of the S6. It's a premium device with aluminum and glass materials, contains the Snapdragon processor, huge battery and best of all pushes users into using virtual reality (VR). Verizon currently is offering a free Gear VR headset (which every other store is offering) or they give you an excellent bonus offer of choosing the well reviewed Gear S2 smartwatch (worth $350).
On the other hand, if you have another person in your family who also wants it, AT&T is offering Buy One Get One Free offers. Time is limited on this deal so act fast!
The worse part about cleaning is taking out the vacuum and finding an available outlet and lugging the vacuum around the entire house. Dyson has removed a lot of the barriers and the drudgery of the experience with its cordless vacuums. Just pick it up and go. These are fantastic for apartments and houses with stairs. If you have a small pick up truck or car ... it's the perfect companion. We've been using one for over a year and have never vacuumed more.
6. Philips Sonicare Essence Sonic Electric Toothbrush $34.99 after clipping Amazon coupon (Originally $50)
For those who use a regular bristle brush, upgrading to the Philips Sonicare is a great way to get your teeth cleaner and impress the dentist on your next trip. Philips has patented sonic technology and dynamic motion to get your teeth and gumline clean. It has a built-in timer to ensure you hit the dentist recommended 2-minutes of brushing. At $35 and more than 700 strong reviews on Amazon, it's hard to go wrong with this product.
