Rachio 8-Zone Smart Sprinkler Controller – 2nd Generation on Sale @ Amazon for $127.84 (Requires Prime w/ Alexa)

No direct link — must order via Alexa. Say, “Alexa, order a Rachio smart sprinkler controller,” and it should come up with the $127.84 price.

Check your local water company for rebates. Where I live, we receive a $125 rebate for upgrading to this unit, making the net cost $2.84 + tax.

Amazon Dash Wand Essentially Free @ Amazon After $20 Credit (Prime Required)

Direct Link

Must be a Prime member. Upon registering the device, you will receive a $20 promotional credit in your account that expires on June 18, 2018. You may only use the credit to purchase items shipped and sold by Amazon.com, but given that you have a year to use it, this essentially makes the dash wand (almost) free for most people.

It is not exactly free because you do have to pay sales tax on the initial purchase.

Sony MDRXB650BT Extra Bass Bluetooth Headphones + Sony SRSX11 Ultra-Portable Bluetooth Speaker + $30 Spotify Gift Card for $49.98 @ Verizon Smart Rewards

Direct Link

First of all, this deal is only open to Verizon customers. The package will cost $49.98 after deducting 18,000 Verizon Rewards Points, which are mostly useless anyway.  The headphones and speaker are $98 and $48 on Amazon, respectively, so I value this package around $180.

As mentioned in the post title, the items included are:

  • Sony MDRXB650BT/B Extra Bass Bluetooth Headphones
  • Sony SRSX11 Ultra-Portable Bluetooth Speaker
  • $30 Spotify Gift Card
