Wednesday's top deals: YI security cameras, smart scales, and more
Figuring out which deals are great and which deals are lame isn't your job. It's ours! Save yourself some time by browsing our easy-to-digest roundup featuring only the best deals of the day.
YI is a company that strives to offer affordable security cameras for both inside and outside your home. There are different models to choose between based on your budget, and sometimes you can even snag a nice discount on one. For instance, right now YI is throwing in a free YI 1080p Home Camera (opens in new tab) with the purchase of the YI 1080p Outdoor Security Camera (opens in new tab). You'll just need to add both items to your cart and then enter promo code INOUT2CAM during checkout.
$109.98 $30 off
YI's Outdoor Security Camera records in 1080p resolution and uses a 110-degree lens and universal ball mount to cover every direction around it. It's weather-resistant too, making it a suitable fit for both indoors and outdoors. You'll get motion-activated alerts and app notifications sent directly to your phone, and that feature works on both iOS and Android. You can use two-way audio to communicate through the camera, and it even features 12 infrared LEDs for night vision up to 50 feet. It comes with a free one-month trial to YI Cloud, and supports microSD cards up to 32GB.
Meanwhile, the YI Home Camera isn't weather-resistant and has quite a different look to it, but it'd make a great pick to keep somewhere in your living room or as a baby monitor. Check out the rest of today's top deals below.
Amazon Prime Day is next week but you don't have to wait until July 15 to start saving. Amazon is already offering its Prime members a hefty discount on Ring's Video Doorbell Pro, dropping it down to a new all-time low price, and throwing in a free Amazon Echo Dot to boot. It's currently on sale for just $169 which is $80 off its retail price and lower than we've ever seen it go, even beating last year's Prime Day offer by $5. It hasn't been available for less than $190 since then.
The Withings Nokia Body Smart Scale is more capable than most scales when it comes to helping you lose weight, and that's because it does much more than just tell how much you weight. Right now, you can even save on its purchase at Amazon, where it's currently on sale for $48. That's just cents above the lowest price it's ever had there and $12 off its regular cost. Up to eight users can utilize this scale to track weight, BMI, and more. It also pairs with a free app for iOS and Android to help you set goals, view calorie budgets, and see your history. The scale syncs with hundreds of health apps, including Apple Health, Google Fit, and Fitbit.
Now at $140, this is the lowest we've ever seen this OPODEE Robotic Vacuum Cleaner go and it very rarely drops from its $200 price tag. The discount is a part of Amazon's Prime-exclusive deals of the day as we count down to Amazon Prime Day itself. It features a powerful 1800Pa suction along with five cleaning modes such as Spot Cleaning, Edge Cleaning, and Single Room. There's also a built-in gyroscope that helps the vacuum navigate your home and, thanks to its height of less than 3 inches, it can glide under furniture and catch all the dust bunnies that have been hiding.
Free up space on your smartphone or quickly transfer files between your USB-C-equipped tablet and laptop with the SanDisk Ultra 64GB USB-C flash drive. It has fallen to $14.99 at Amazon for the first time in its history, taking over $5 off its average price there. With a super-thin, retractable design so you can easily slip it into your laptop bag or clip it to your keys. If your phone or tablet is USB On-The-Go-enabled, you'll be able to plug in the drive to move photos and other files around using the free app, and if your computer is rocking USB-C ports it'll be plug and play there.
Spark your savings
If you find yourself reaching for a lighter frequently, you know that they have their own set of issues. Provided nobody nicked your Bic, you often have to shake it, hold it up to the light to see how much fluid is left, pry off the weird metal piece that makes it hard to ignite, and replace it once you inevitably lose it. Enter the Tacklife Electric Arc Rechargeable Lighter. Usually, it costs $13, but today at Amazon you can enter code GZ2Y24C4 to nab it for only $6.36. We've seen sales on these in the past, but there hasn't been one for quite some time, and there's no telling when it'll be discounted again.
Apple just yesterday announced an updated 2019 MacBook Air and today we're already seeing retailers drop the price on existing stock to make way for the new arrival. At Amazon, several models of Apple's 2018 MacBook Air have dropped in price by as much as $200. It features a 13-inch Retina display, 1.6GHz Intel i5 processor, and Touch ID fingerprint sensor. It also has two Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports and battery life of up to 12 hours. With either a 128GB or 256GB SSD you'll have plenty of space for documents, photos, music, movies, and more.
