Only $4.99 when you order with Alexa. Just say, "Alexa, order an Amazon Smart Plug."

Well, that was easy.

These plugs often run $15 and were $5 bucks for Prime Day.

...They're good, but Amazon makes it inexplicably difficult to set timers on them thru the Alexa app.

Will Collier, did you order it via Alexa? When I did, it/she stated, "you'll get an exclusive savings of $20" (or words to that effect. Then she said it was in my cart for review, and if I wanted to buy it now, I could simply say that. Instead, I stopped talking to her, went to my computer, and looked in my cart. It was there, listed at $24.99, but when I clicked "Check Out," it showed the discount. I didn't actually purchase it yet, but plan to.

Thanks, steve..., for the heads up! I was *just* about to buy 2 Kasa smart plugs for my mom for $15 in total, I think, so this is a bit of a savings, plus, we both get to order via Alexa, which is a first, and my mom will think is neat. It also sounds like these plugs *may* not require an iPhone/iPad to set up, and if they do, her iPad 2 will *hopefully* be able to do the job. The Kasa Smart app requires iOS 10 or greater, and her old iPad 2 can't get past 9.5.3.

In a pinch, my sister who lives near my mom can help her out, but if we can do it, ourselves, it'll be nice.

I did, and that cheap... AI... never said anything about a discount. No notice in my cart, either, just the full price unit.

I think Carol Baskin hacked Alexa.

When you go to check out, you should see that there's $20 bucks taken off the purchase on the verification-page right before you finalize it.

A Damn You Deal! except that I already have a few bargain smart plugs.

What I really, really want now, is a HomeKit compatible smart light dimmer switch (wall type).

Wemo switches haven't worked for me ever, while Kasa stuff works very well, but isn't HomeKit compatible.

Wemo has a second gen dimmer light switch I'll try, but confidence is way low.

Eve switches work but lack a dimmer.



Well, that was easy.

POMTL!





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Not in my case, but my wife was able to order one that way.

I'm telling you, Alexa has it in for me. Must be all the times I've ordered her to open the pod bay doors...

Yep, that's how it worked for me & I didn't check out until six hours after I placed
the order via Alexa!
