Right now, you can grab Amazon's own smart plug or LIFX's mini white smart bulb for just $10 at Amazon when you use coupon code SMART10 during checkout. This pricing is impulse buy territory, seriously. At only $10 each, you can afford to give one of these a try and finally see what all the smart home fuss is about.

$10 $24.99 $15 off

With coupon: SMART10

The LIFX smart bulb is currently $23 without the code, while the Amazon Smart Plug is $25; meaning either one you choose, you're getting a great deal.

This promotion is only available to those who have an Alexa-enabled device, like the Echo Dot, linked to their Amazon account, but at this point that's likely most of you. Both of these accessories can be controlled using your Alexa device with a simple voice command, so if you've been looking to expand your current smart home system, or finally try one out, this is the best way to do it. Once you're set up with some smart home gear, you'll no doubt want to add more. There's so much you can do with Alexa, just check out all of these devices that work with the Amazon voice assistant.
