Deal Savings Price

Early January isn’t known for especially good sale prices, but we’re in the aftermath of a very unusual year. That means it’s still possible to find some pretty decent discounts, including some gadgets that are priced within a dollar of their all-time low Black Friday prices. This might be fortuitous timing, especially if you have some gift cards burning a hole in your pocket

So whether you’re in the mood for an Amazon Echo Show, a Lenovo laptop, a Galaxy Watch or an Apple Watch, there are still opportunities to save some money and buy yourself something you can enjoy through all of 2021 (which will be a better year, I am sure of it). 

At or near Black Friday lows

Amazon’s compact smart display with a 5.5-inch display has all the smart home and voice-command smarts of the Echo Show 8 in a smaller package.
