Amazon is discounting the certified refurbished Echo today, bringing it down to just $59.99. That is a really good price for the first-generation Echo, seeing as the new one is over $100, and this is still going to get Alexa updates. And that's definitely important. So if you were looking for an Echo that will provide great sound quality, without breaking the bank, this refurbished Echo is definitely the way to go. And it's only going to be $59 today, so you'll want to get it before it's gone.

Philips Hue has its two-pack starter kit, which includes two color ambiance bulbs and the Hue Bridge, for just $99. That is good for a third off of its regular price, and that kind of discount doesn't happen often. So if you are looking to start making your home a smart one, then this is definitely a deal to jump on. Philips Hue works with Amazon Alexa, so this would be a great one to pick up along with the certified refurbished Amazon Echo that is in Amazon's Gold Box Deal of the Day today. Amazon also announced the Fire TV Stick 4K yesterday, which brings 4K content in a small HDMI stick. It has all of your favorite apps like Hulu and Netflix, but it also has Alexa, and would work great with these Philips Hue lights.

All of the deals listed below are accurate for today, and will expire at midnight PST on their expiration date. But keep in mind that some of these deals may end before then, if stock runs low or simply runs out. Also keep in mind that prices on Amazon do tend to fluctuate. So if you are looking to get in on one of these deals, you'll want to do it as soon as possible.
