It’s the middle of April, yet I woke up to the sight of “wintery mix” (that’s snow, sleet, and rain all at once for my warmer climate readers). To quell my disappointment in this so-called spring season, I’m doing whatever I can to stay positive—and that means hunting for bargain buys online.
From underneath the pile of blankets on my couch, I’ve managed to find a few really great deals on Amazon. Granted, Amazon’s always got tons of stuff on sale, but the deals I found are for things that I know for a fact are actually worth the money. Whether I’ve used them myself or my company has put them through in-depth testing, I’m confident that if you are interested in the things on this list, buying them would be a great decision. So let’s talk about these deals already!
1. A smart air conditioner you can control with Alexa
So, I know I said it’s cold and miserable where I live right now, but that just makes me crave summertime even more. And while I’d love to bask in the sun on a boiling hot summer day right now, I know I’ll want something to keep me cool too.
The Frigidaire Smart Window A/C is at the top of my wish list right now. I’ve had a WiFi-enabled Quirky smart air conditioner for the last couple years, and I love being able to control it with an app on my phone. But Frigidaire’s model also works with Amazon Alexa, so I could just utter a command to cool things down when I’m extra lazy and melting in the summer heat. Pinch me, I’m dreaming.
