It's rare to get a multi-piece home theater system for less than a zillion dollars, let alone one with a real life receiver. But until the end of the day, you can snap up this six piece set from Onkyo, complete with receiver, subwoofer and five speakers, for a cool two hundo until the end of the day. The ad copy states this setup is ideal for "smaller living rooms, home offices, or even dorm rooms," meaning it's perfect for your greasy roommate who spends all day gaming in bed.
Are you trying to upgrade your dumb home into a smart home? Amazon's miniature version of their Echo smart home hub lets you do a lot of cool stuff with a simple voice command, utilizing Amazon's Alexa service to control lights, fans, thermostats and the like, play music from leading services like Spotify and Pandora, set alarms, message people, and a bunch more. Through November 12, you can get refurbished, second generation models for a cool $10 off.

But if you're a normal person who wants drinkable coffee (or tea!) in the morning at a reasonable cost, then do I have the sales for you!
