TL;DR: Add a touch of smart tech to your home with an Apple HomePod for $100 off or an Amazon Echo Plus for $70 off at Best Buy as of July 21.


Whether it’s Siri or Alexa, it’s nice to have a helping hand when you walk through the door. Well, okay, they’re not actual helping hands — they can’t grab the groceries for you (isn’t that what kids are for?) but they can help you with a ton of other tasks. 

Besides acting as 360-degree speakers, both the Apple HomePod and Amazon Echo Plus offer you hands-free assistance with everyday things like checking the weather, setting alarms and reminders, and even making calls.

Right now, you can grab the Echo Plus for just $79.99 at Best Buy. That price even includes a free Philips Hue smart bulb that can (along with other smart switches, sensors, door locks, and more) be controlled with Alexa.

If you plan on getting more than one, you’ll probably make use of the Drop In feature to instantly connect to another compatible Echo at home or send an announcement across Echo devices, like calling everyone to the dinner table or reminding the kids that it’s way past their bedtime even when you’re not in the room to witness them playing video games instead of sleeping.

The Apple HomePod is on sale for $199.99 and also comes with a free gift — 4 free months of Apple Music. So not only will you have access to Siri but you’ll also have over 45 million songs in one sleek device.

The spatial awareness of the HomePod makes it stand out from other speakers, since it can disperse the sound to best serve the space it’s in. You’ll have bass and beats bouncing off the walls and projecting to the center of whatever room you’re in.
