It's been a long week, and you deserve to splurge a little! The following deals are some of the best we could find around the net today to make the most of your hard-earned cash.
One thing you may not have thought to make smarter is something you likely use on a daily basis: your garage door. That's right, wouldn't it be nice to be able to control it from your phone, or be able to see at a glance if you forgot to close it that morning? Well, making that a reality is actually easier (and more affordable) than you may think! Right now, Chamberlain's MyQ Smart Garage Hub is on sale for just $49.99, which is a savings of $30. In the past, this kit has sold for as much as $100, but never dropped below the $60 price point, making today's sale a new all-time low for it.
79.99 $30 off
The package comes with everything that you need to convert your existing garage door into a smart one. It works with almost every garage door opener made after 1993, as long as your set up has the standard safety sensors on the doors. You'll have to connect some new door sensors to the garage door along with the included door sensor. Then connect the hub itself to your home's Wi-Fi network, and walk through the setup process in the free smartphone app.
From here you can set up notifications to be reminded if your door is left open for a preset length of time, as well as open and close your garage door right from the app. Amazon Prime members in select areas can link their MyQ account and Prime account to enable Amazon's new in-garage delivery via its Key service. You can enable voice controls via Google Assistant and IFTTT, but that does require a monthly fee of $1 or you can pay $10 per year.

Oh, man. Remember the good ol' days of last year when Amazon's 3rd-gen Echo Dot smart speaker was brand new and discounted to a super low price? What a time to be alive, you know? Well, the good ol' days are here again because Amazon's Echo Dot just dropped to $29.99. It's been selling for around $50 since the holiday sales ended, and even when it did drop it only went down to around $40 or so. Put an Echo Dot in every room of the house thanks to today's deal. Grab this deal in Charcoal, Heather Gray, or Sandstone fabric colors.
If you want to get fit for summer, it's worth checking out Withings' newest Steel HR Sport smartwatch which is discounted at Amazon by $40. This hybrid smartwatch combines a heart rate tracker with GPS (from your connected phone) so you can get the most out of your workouts while mapping your pace and distance. It's water-resistant up to 50 meters and can last for almost a month on a single charge of its battery — something that can't be said for the vast majority of smartwatches. There's sleep tracking and smart notifications, too.
Have you ever considered running a 5K at an event but didn't do it due to nerves or the price? Well, we've worked out a deal with Vi Trainer, a company that holds virtual 5K runs, and this is your chance to get in on the action. Signing up for the virtual 5K via this link drops the cost of entry down from $24.99 to just $9.99, which is a small price to pay to accomplish one of your goals. The cost of the race includes more than just the ability to run virtually with thousands of others like unique training plan and guided runs. The race takes place on June 5, but you don't need to start at any specific time. The event is open for 24 hours, so all you need to do is launch the app and track your 5K run at any point during that day.
Spring is here, and that means you finally get to see what happened to your lawn over the winter. Heavy snow and rain often makes a total mess of your garden, but fear not!
