- Amcrest Home Security/Monitoring Wifi Camera $79 or $69 (expired)
Amcrest Video Monitoring/Security Wifi IP Camera with remote pan/tilt, surveillance recording, and two-way audio for $79 with free shipping.
Available in either Black or White.
If you sign up as a brand new Groupon member, you can get $10 off with code WELCOME .
The white easily blends with the color of most walls, while the black's obvious presence can be a theft deterrent in high traffic areas.
Normally sells for $100.
Here is the user manual for anyone interested in reviewing its features.
We have one, and enjoy listening and talking to the dog from outside the house through the Amcrest app.
Took about 15-20 minutes to program the camera to access the Wifi and set up port forwarding on the home router.
Day and night video quality is excellent, even in the darkness.
We recommend this product.
If you do have a home camera, be sure to setup your Wifi router and your camera with very secure passwords.
Thieves have been known to spy on homes by hacking into cameras.
Do not use simple passwords like a sequence of numbers or your pet's name.
Use a password generator to make up a password, and write the password someplace safe (like on the inside of your kitchen cabinet, or emailed to yourself).
And please do not use a Wifi SSID that identifies your home (like your address or apartment number), which mind as well be called "rob me, please."
Consult a tech if you have no idea how to implement basic internet/wifi security.

Insta Pot IP-DUO60 6qt Pressure Cooker for $70 with Prime only.
We purchased it for the same price when it was on sale during Black Friday last year, and love it.
We call it our "kitchen robot" since healthy food can be made super easy.
Brown rice and potatoes cook in one-third the time, and soups taste incredible.
If you want to get more into healthy cooking, I cannot recommend anything better than this (except maybe the Bluetooth/App version which costs a bit more).
(Expired)Asus RT-N12 Wireless Router for $20.
Normally at least $28.
We had a more expensive Asus router (model RT-N66U) which broke in a month.
(Expired)TP-Link 5-Port Gigabit Managed Switch for $23.
Sometimes on sale for $25, normally sold for $30.
We have one, and it works fairly well.
Can log in to the switch with downloadable software, view network statistics, and do basic management features like forcing ports to certain speeds.
Gunnar Optiks Computer Glasses for $40 to $45.
We used one for a while, and it does help prevent eyestrain (headaches) when staring at a bright screen for long periods of time.
However it alone is not fully effective.
Only frequent breaks, eye exercises, low screen brightness and lots of ambient light can truly prevent eyestrain.
Kmashi 10,000mAh Portable Battery Charger for $11.
Weighs 0.6 pounds.
Reviews say it does not have pass-through charging, so it cannot charge your devices while its internal battery is charging.
This is a big downside, in our opinion.

SMS Audio Street by 50 Cent On-Ear Headphones for $30 with free shipping.

All come with a full 1-year manufacturer's warranty.
Some "open box" ones on the list are cheaper, but may not have a 1-year warranty.

They are only valid online (not available through phone orders).
Dell's Promo eGift Cards usually arrive in customers' inboxes 2 weeks after purchase, and come with a 90-day expiration date.
They are really like store credit with an expiration date, rather than a gift card.
