Great Deal on the Nest 3rd Generation WiFi Thermostat
I love our Nest Thermostat! These usually run $299 but Amazon has it for a great deal right now at $219. Also, check your local power company – mine offered a $75 rebate for a WiFi thermostat. So you save in energy costs, the energy company thanks you with a rebate and you get the comfort of checking your house temperature when you’re away from home. It’s awesome – check it out here!
Eset AntiVirus Software
- Eset is a great option for an upgraded antivirus software. There’s a discount on it now AND it’s buy one year, get a year free. Check it out here.
AWESOME DEAL – Microsoft Office 365
Microsoft is selling a 1-year subscription to Microsoft Office 365 on Amazon right now for $58! This is a great deal! Even if you don’t need a subscription now you can pick it up and use it to extend your current subscription for 12 months. It’s hard to find deals on Office so I try to grab them when they come along.
Carbonite Backup Service 50% Off!!!
This is an awesome deal that doesn’t come around often. You can backup your computer files (precious photos, data and more) manually. But, if you’re not that tech savvy, or if you’re not disciplined enough to do it regularly, Carbonite’s backup service is an awesome way to go and right now it’s at an awesome price!
If you want to boost productivity using a dual display is a great way to do it. Don’t have a second computer monitor? Use your iPad as a second monitor for your PC or Mac with the Duet app. It works great and it’s HALF OFF FOR A LIMITED TIME! (I haven’t paid for many apps but I definitely purchased this one…and it’s been worth every penny.)
