These are the 5 best Amazon deals right now

Have you finally recovered from Amazon Prime Day 2018? You've had time to enjoy everything you purchased and are now ready to get back on the horse and try to find more deals.

Hopefully you are, because the conclusion of Prime Day does not mean the end of good deals. There are fewer, sure, but they exist.

Whether you'll find something to buy is totally dependent on what you need or want. But if you want a quick glimpse of what you could find, read on because here's a brief list of deals you may not want to miss.

Add a few more USB slots

More and more devices use USB, whether to connect to a computer or simply to charge. The problem is many laptops offer just a couple of ports, making it difficult to plug in everything at the same time.

That's where USB data hubs come in, and the Anker 4-Port USB 3.0 Ultra Slim Data Hub is a good option. It works with both Apple and PC laptops, and can handle USB flash drives, mobile HDD and more.

The data syncs at speeds up to 5 Gbps, making it possible to transfer an entire HD movie in just seconds. The hub is normally $9.99, but right now it is on sale for 20 percent off if you tap or click here.

Get into some smart bulbs

You've probably read a lot about smart bulbs but have yet to take the plunge. They provide more than your standard bulb, meaning you'll never look at one the same way ever again.

In this case, the Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance A19 60W Equivalent LED Smart Light Bulb Starter Kit would not be a bad way to go. The bulbs provide 16 million different colors and shades of white, and they can be controlled remotely from a smartphone, tablet or many virtual home assistants.

You can create custom scenes, and the bulbs have a lifetime of about 25,000 hours or 23 years with normal use. They install like any other bulb and can be had for 33 percent off if you tap or click here.

Leave cleaning up to the robot

Do you have a friend or family member who has happily shown off their robot vacuum? Did you watch it go to work and think, "Wow, that's cool and I wish I had one?"

Snag the Neato Robotics Botvac D3 Wi-Fi Connected Laster Navigating Robot Vacuum, and you will. This vacuum works with Alexa and can be operated through the Neato App to start, schedule and receive notifications.

It features technology that allows it to scan, map and methodically clean your floors as well as a design that ensures it will clean wherever dirt is, including close to walls and deep into corners. It works on all floor types and is on sale for 33 percent off.


A device that would be great for any student

Got someone who is heading back to school without a computer to work on? That's no good. Fortunately Amazon has a bunch of its Chromebooks on sale, including this one from Samsung.

Packed with 2G of memory and 16GB of storage and run by an Intel Celeron processor along with an 11.6" HD anti-reflective display, it will provide plenty of power for any student. Its keyboard is also spill-resistant, and there are built-in security features to ensure it is protected from viruses and malware.

This Chromebook will last up to 11 hours on a single charge, and it is on sale for 30 percent off the normal price.

Keep an eye on things while you are away

Whether you want a little extra security or to monitor a child or pet, an indoor camera is a helpful thing to have. There are plenty to choose from, but the YI 180P Home Camera is one of your best bets.

This camera offers 24/7 Full HD recording as well as two-way audio that will let you transmit and receive audio from any location that has a Wi-Fi connection. It also has enhanced night vision, which means you can see things clearly in the dark.

The camera provides activity alerts for things like baby crying and motion detection, and it can be accessed through the YI Home App.


Speaking of deals, get great free stuff at your local library

Your local library is chock full of things to do and check out at zero cost, so yes, you have to get out of the house to access a few of them, but all you have to worry about is the cost of getting there! Need some convincing still, or just more details? Tap or click here to see what you can get.
