Amazon offers $10 smart bulbs and plugs as an early Black Friday deal

After launching a big sale for Alexa's birthday and revealing some of its best upcoming Black Friday deals, Amazon has just kicked off a smart home sale that we doubt any holiday sale will beat. You can get a LIFX Mini LED Smart Bulb or Wemo Mini Smart Plug for just $10 using promo code SMART10 at checkout. The only downside here is that not everyone is eligible for the discount. Per the terms and conditions of the offer, it will only work if you have an Amazon Echo device or Sonos One speaker connected to your account and it's your first smart home purchase.

Given how popular Echo and Sonos are, we're pretty sure a big portion of you should be able to take advantage. The LIFX smart bulb regularly sells for $24 on average there, while the Wemo smart plug can be found for $29 on average; meaning either one you choose, you're getting a great deal. There's even a coupon you can clip on the LIFX bulb's product page to save a little bit extra. Amazon is sweetening the offer even more by also extending a 20% discount to a range of smart home products, including the Ring Video Doorbell 2, Ring Floodlight Camera, and various TP-Link accessories.

Both the smart bulb and the smart plug work with Amazon Alexa, which means if you have a device like the Echo Dot, you can ask Alexa to turn off the LIFX bulb or power on something plugged into the Wemo smart plug and begin controlling them with your voice. They also work with Google Assistant and Apple HomeKit.

At Amazon, the LIFX bulb features a rating of 3.7 out of 5 stars based on nearly 300 reviews while the Wemo smart plug has a rating of 3.8 out of 5 stars based on over 11,000 reviews. While that indicates some middling opinions, it's worth keeping in mind that most of those reviewers paid full price and might have changed their tune if they'd only paid $10.
