Thanks to competitive pricing and a wide assortment of good products, TP-Link has quickly become one of the leading smart home device manufacturers. They’ve announced a series of new products at CES 2019, including smart doorbells, security cameras, and smart plugs, but the most interesting new device is a smart light switch with a built-in voice assistant that you talk to through its integrated speaker and microphones.

Amazon has started a new large promotion on several Alexa compatible smart home devices. Most devices are 20% off with the promo code SMARTHOME20, but two special sales are easily the best deals of the bunch. If you use promo code SMART10 at checkout, you can buy either the TP-Link Smart Plug Mini or the LIFX White Smart Bulb for $10. You are limited to one purchase at a discount, so you cannot buy each for $10. The TP-Link plug is among the most popular Alexa compatible smart plugs. The lowest price it has ever been in the past was $19.99, so this is a fantastic deal. The lowest price the LIFX bulb has been is $21.49, so it too is a great deal at $10. Both of these smart home gadgets do not require any kind of hub. Simply plug/screw them in, set them up on your WiFi network, and you’ll be able to control them through Alexa or through their smartphone apps. Offer is only good for “owners of Echo Family and 3rd party Alexa-enabled devices.”
Amazon currently has great deals on their various Echo models, but what makes those deals better is the ability to add a TP-Link Smart Plug Mini to any Echo purchase for just $10 more. The smart plug being offer currently costs $24.99 on its own. It has been as low as $19.99 in the past, so getting it for $10 is a great price. The smart plug allows you to control whatever you plug into it through an app and through Alexa. The bundle is available to purchase with the Amazon Echo for $79.99, Echo Dot for $39.99, Echo Spot for $109.99, and the Echo Show for $139.99. If you’ve already purchased an Echo but didn’t get the smart plug bundle, you may still have time to cancel the original order and place a new one.
Amazon has just put the TP-Link Smart Plug on sale for $19.99 and the TP-Link Mini Smart Plug on sale for $24.99. These are the lowest regular prices that either of these smart plugs have ever been. Both plugs function identically, but the newer mini version won’t block the adjacent outlet like the original one does. Both of these can be controlled by Alexa and don’t require any kind of hub. Just plug them in, connect them to your WiFi using their app, and then ask Alexa to discover your new devices. You’ll then be able to control whatever you plug into these smart plugs with your voice. Since Alexa now lets you designate that a light is connected to a smart plug, you can include these plugs in your Alexa routines and turn on lamps with natural commands like “Alexa, turn on the lights.”
The TP-Link Smart Plug is back on sale for $19.99 on Amazon. Apart from a brief Alexa-exclusive deal over a year ago, this is the lowest price that this plug has ever been. This is the same plug that Amazon was bundling for $5 when you buy any Echo device, so if you purchased an Echo device recently with this plug and wanted more of them, here’s your chance to get them at a great price. This switch can be directly controlled by Alexa without needing any hubs or other equipment. Just plug it in, set it up in the app, and you’ll be able to control it by saying “Alexa, turn on/off the [selected name]..”

If you’re planning to purchase any Echo device during Amazon’s Black Friday Sale, you can add a TP-Link Smart Plug to your order for just $5 more. The promotion is available to anyone purchasing an Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Plus, Echo Show, or Echo Spot between now and November 27th or while supplies last. Simply add the TP-Link Smart Plug to your cart along with one of the Echo models and you’ll see a discount automatically applied at checkout that lowers the price of the plug to $5. If you’ve already ordered an Echo device but didn’t include the plug, you can probably cancel the order and place it again with the plug included. Just be sure both items are still in stock before canceling your previous order.
