17 Smart Home Tech Deals for Memorial Day (2021): Roku, Smart Accessories, and More

If you aren’t sure what you’re looking for yet, check out our guides on the best soundbars and on which Roku is right for you.

Roku Streaming Stick+ for $39 ($10 off) at Amazon, Target: This sale price is fairly common for the Streaming Stick, but it’s still the best price to nab it at. It’s our choice for most people looking for a new streaming device. It sticks right into your TV’s HDMI port, and a second cable plugs into the USB port for power. There’s dual-band Wi-Fi that has a longer range and can connect to 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz networks—this is particularly handy for apartment dwellers, where the many nearby Wi-Fi networks can interfere with your signal.

Roku Streambar for $99 ($30 off) at Amazon, Target: The Streambar is a very capable mini soundbar with Roku built right in. It’s pretty compact at just 14 inches long, so it should fit most people’s TV setups.

Roku Ultra for $69 ($31 off) at Amazon, Target: The updated Ultra is more expensive that most of the options besides the Roku soundbars, but it has stronger Wi-Fi and the ability to stream in Dolby Vision. It also has an Ethernet port and comes with earbuds that plug into the remote for private or nighttime viewing when you’re trying to be quiet.

Roku Express HD for $25 ($5 off) at Amazon, Target: This is a perfectly fine Roku if you have a standard HDTV. It has the basic Roku offerings, without some extras like voice search, and the remote can’t control your TV’s power or volume.

Amazon Fire Stick 4K for $40 ($10 off) at Amazon, Target: If you can’t tell, we much prefer Roku, but if you’re an Amazon fan, you should like the 4K Fire Stick. It works well, but just remember that the menus are heavily geared towards Amazon Prime content.

See our guide to our favorite electric toothbrushes before deciding. 

Philips Sonicare for Kids for $40 ($10 off): Our kid tester liked using brush to keep her brushing for two minutes. She didn’t love the kid-specific app, but your kid might.

Oral-B Pro 1000 Electric Toothbrush for $45 ($5 off) at Walmart, Amazon: This is a classic toothbrush without all the smart bells and whistles that can be overwhelming when you just want to clean your teeth. It’s not the biggest discount, but it’s a good brush nonetheless.
