Welcome to Kind of a Big Deal, a daily roundup of great sales on the brands and items you love (tech, shoes, style, travel, etc.), as well as great new products. Please note: Deals are subject to change at the whim of the merchants mentioned.

Philips Hue smart lights

I went budget shopping for smart lights a few years back, and ended up with a bulb that required its own remote and didn’t work with voice control. Used it once. Don’t be me, and get a two-pack of the popular (and Amazon’s Choice) Philips Hue smart lights, which offer 16 million colors, work with most lights and integrate with Alexa and Google Assistant. They also last up to 23 years, although we can’t prove that (yet). Now, they’re down to just under $78 (from $150) plus an additional 20% off when you clip the coupon.
