Black Friday 2019 started it all, then Cyber Monday kicked in just a few days later to deliver more deals for holiday shoppers looking to outfit their homes with the latest in connected home tech. And as Cyber Week wrapped up, Green Monday has arrived to continue with a deluge of deals. Here are some of the best deals out there on Amazon devices, Sonos wireless home audio, Bose home audio, and Samsung QLED 4K UHD TVs.
Amazon Echo and eero Device Deals
Among the special deals on Amazon devices are the latest iteration of the capable Echo Dot smart speaker, powered by the Alexa assistant of course. This third generation version is available with a digital clock built into its shell, making it ideal for use on a night stand. Also there are deals on the eero mesh Wi-Fi system, the company that started the distributed home Wi-Fi genre (and now part of Amazon).

If you missed out on the Black Friday weekend deals on Sonos, you can still get these deals on the Sonos One SL, the latest evolution of the standard Sonos wireless speaker. These speakers do not have the onboard Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant voice assistant microphones like the more costly Sonos One (also on sale), so are ideal if you are taking a more measured approach to using voice activation in your home. They can still be controlled by the two major voice assistants, but you will need a separate compatible smart speaker to make that happen.
Bose home audio systems rarely goes on sale, but these deals bring welcome relief on the latest Bose Home Speaker 500 (with onboard Alexa microphones), as well as the SoundTouch 500 soundbar—ideal for your big-screen TV.
We are big fans of the Samsung QLED line of 4K UHD TVs, and have personally purchased two of them. The great holiday deals on these stellar sets march on, but we are not sure how long they will continue. Below are purchase links to the Q70 Series, but the Q60, Q80, and Q90 versions are also on sale at historically low prices.
