The very cute Echo Dot Kids Edition comes with some parental controls and a one-year subscription to Amazon Kids+. Alexa can read your kiddo bedtime stories, play age-appropriate music, and more. Keep in mind that the Kids+ subscription automatically renews at $3 per month, so don’t forget to cancel if you’re not interested in paying for it.
Echo Dot for $29 ($21 off)
This recently-updated spherical speaker has Alexa built in. Our tester loves it so far, and says it has better sound than previous versions. You can bundle it with a Sengled Smart Bulb for the same price.
Echo Show 5 and Blink Mini Camera for $50 ($30 off)
The Echo Show 5 isn’t our favorite gadget, but it’s a good option if you want a small smart display for your kitchen counter or front entryway. You’ll get a mini indoor camera bundled in, too. Alternatively, you may want to check out the bigger Echo Show 8 for $20 more (the camera can be bundled for an additional $5).
Nest Mini for $19 ($30 off)
If you, like us, prefer Google Assistant to Amazon’s Alexa, this is a good deal on Google’s smallest smart speaker. Check out our review for more.
Nest Hub for $50 ($40 off)
This little hub doesn’t have a camera or great speakers. It’s best suited for entryways to manage your smart home devices or to see upcoming calendar events and reminders. You can also use it to check your security cameras. The Walmart deal includes $20 in Vudu credit if that’s something you want (yes, you can watch movies and shows on this hub, too).
Nest Learning Thermostat for $199 ($50 off)
Use the Nest app to adjust your home’s temperature remotely or set schedules to avoid paying for unnecessary heating and cooling. Nest learns as you use it—so, for example, it’ll keep your home cooler while you’re asleep and not moving around. Check with your energy provider—you might be able to get a rebate for installing a Nest thermostat.
