For a limited time, Amazon is dropping the price of the Alexa Voice Remote from $29 to just $15. Amazon said this 50-percent off promotion will run as long as "supplies last," and it wouldn't elaborate on just how long the company expects current stock to last. Just last week, I wrote about the benefits of the remote and declared it a must-have accessory at $29. But, at $15, it's even more appealing. The recently revamped remote adds volume controls, a mute button, and a power button. That may sound like standard remote features -- and they are -- but previous Fire TV remotes lacked that functionality, forcing users to keep a TVs remote nearby for basic functionality, along with the Fire TV remote nearby to navigate its interface.

For a limited time, you can get Ring Video Doorbell 2, Ring Chime, and one-year of Ring video cloud recording for $149.99 from Costco -- with shipping provided at no extra cost.

Plus, according to tracker site CamelCamelCamel, Ring Video Doorbell 2 and Chime usually cost $199 and $30, respectively. So, based on their regular prices, you're looking at a bundle valued around $230 to $260. But you can get it from Costco for just $150. The only catch is the deal is a members-only sale, and becoming a Costco member starts at $60 (go here for more details).
