amazon thermostat deal discount coupon code price cost

(Pocket-lint) - Amazon introduced its own smart heating thermostat in September during a product showcase. Called the Amazon Smart Thermostat, it offers control of heating and air conditioning systems for less than many rivals. Even better, you can now buy Amazon's thermostat on sale.

Initially priced at £59.99 at launch in the US, the Energy Star-certified thermostat now costs £47.99, which means it has already received its first-ever price break. It's unclear when exactly the thermostat launched, but it appears to not have been discounted during Black Friday.

squirrel_widget_6109457 The Amazon Smart Thermostat is easy to install and compatible with "most" existing 24V HVAC systems by multiple manufacturers.

EcoFlow's newest portable power station is the perfect companion for home and awayEcoFlow's newest portable power station is the perfect companion for home and away By Pocket-lint Promotion . 8 December 2021

It can be controlled by Alexa voice controls through a separate enabled device and can be programmed using Hunches.

That means Alexa can be set to gain a "Hunch" that you are away from home, so your heating can be reduced to avoid wasting energy and money, for example. Amazon is also selling reduced bundles of its thermostat. One combines the thermostat with a fourth-generation Echo Dot for £77.98 (usually £109.98).

Another adds a second-generation Echo Show 5 for £92.98 (usually £144.98). Both bundles may not arrive until after Christmas, however. For a look at the best smart thermostats available, see Pocket-lint's guide:

Harris Teeter Regular Double Coupon Policy Basics

Harris Teeter doubles coupons every day of the week automatically. Coupons with a face value of £0.99 or less are doubled automatically everyday (unless the coupon indicated Do Not Double). Harris Teeter will double up to 20 coupons per day, per household.

Harris Teeter will double up to 3 identical coupons (must have required product to go with each coupon). BOGO sales ring up at half price. If you just buy one, it still rings up at half price.

You can use a coupon on each item in a BOGO deal. So, if you buy 2 items that are BOGO, you can use two coupons (which is a very good thing!). Shoppers cannot use a coupon with a rain check.

Rain checks expire in 60 days. Senior discount: Seniors 60 and older receive a 5% discount every Thursday. Discount applies after coupons are deducted.

Harris Teeter digital e-coupons: Harris Teeter digital coupons are available to load to your Vic card. These digital coupons CANNOT be combined with paper manufacturer's coupons. They will not double.

The official Harris Teeter Coupon Policy can be found on their website.

Harris Teeter Super Doubles Coupon Policy Basics

Harris Teeter offers the Super Doubles Promotion on a regular basis. When they offer the promotion, we will let you know before it starts. During the pandemic, Harris Teeter is not offering Super Doubles events.

* HT should be Super Doubling coupons worth up to £2 face value. This means that a £1.00 coupon will double to £2.00, a £1.50 coupon will double to £3.00 and a £2.00 coupon will double to £4.00! * HT begins super doubling coupons at 7:00 AM on the first day of the sale.

24 hour stores do not super double coupons before 7:00 AM on the first day (at least that is how it has always worked in the past). Your best bet is to get to the store before 7 am if you want to get the freebies and best deals. Some people get there at 6:15 am or earlier and then wait in line until the register allows coupons to begin Super Doubling at 7 am.

* HT will super double/double up to 20 coupons per household per day. Spouse's cards registered with the same address are linked because the policy is 20 per household, per day. If you have twenty £1 coupons and twenty .75 coupons, only 20 total will double.

They will not double 20 coupons that are under £1 and also super double another 20 coupons that are over £1. It's 20 total coupons that are £2 or less doubled per day. * HT policy is to double up to 3 identical coupons (as long as you buy the product required for each coupon, of course).

So, if you have five £1.00 coupons for a product, the policy is to only super double the first three. The other 2 will be accepted at face value. * Printable coupons: HT will accept 3 printable coupons per like item, per store, per day, according to their policy.

So if you buy 3 identical items and you have a printable coupon for each one, you can use all three. * New Raincheck policy as of March 29, 2017: Harris Teeter will no longer let customers combine a raincheck with a coupon for the same item. In addition, rainchecks now expire 60 days after they are issued.

* If your store is out of your favorite deals (and they will be out of some of them) ask the customer service folks when the next truck arrives so you know when they will be restocking. * Enjoy the deals you are able to get and please remember that many of the best deals will sell out quickly. The stores will reorder those items, but often, the warehouse runs out so they cannot get the stock.

Please be nice to the store employees as it is not their fault if items are out of stock.

And if you are excited about your great deals, give Harris Teeter a call at their Customer Service number, send them an e-mail via their website or post a comment to their Facebook page to thank them.

Happy Shopping!

Microsoft 365 has a 50% discount for those on pirated Office software: Here’s why

Microsoft is offering up to 50 per cent discount on Microsoft 365 subscriptions to those users you are using pirated versions of Office software. Users who are on non-genuine versions of Microsoft Office have reported seeing a new promotional offer, first spotted by Ghacks via Bleeping Computer, that gets them a big discount should they switch to genuine software. "GET UP TO 50% OFF.

For a limited time, save up to 50% on a genuine Microsoft 365 subscription," the promotional offer states. If users click on the same, they are taken to a Microsoft 365 landing page where users will also be reportedly warned that pirated software poses a risk to their system's security. The risks include higher exposure to virus and malware attacks, identity theft, corrupted files, and data loss, as well as not being able to receive critical updates to the software.

Should users then go ahead with the purchase, they will see a 50 per cent discount coupon applied during checkout for the first year of an annual Microsoft 365 family subscription. This subscription costs £99.99 per year and supports up to six users with 6TB cloud storage. The offer can also be used with the Microsoft 365 Personal subscription that applies to one person, offers 1TB cloud storage, and costs £69.99 per year.

Microsoft is trying to curb the number of users indulging in piracy with the new strategy, while also increasing the number of active subscriptions to Microsoft 365.

The 50 per cent discount may not appeal to all pirated users of Office software, but might be enough to push some people into making the switch.

NI high street voucher: Almost 5,000 still waiting for card ahead of next week’s spend deadline

Almost 5,000 people are still waiting to receive their GBP100 Spend Local card just a week before the deadline to use it. he Department for the Economy confirmed around 4,700 people who were verified are due to receive their cards this week. Around GBP145m was allocated to the pre-paid cards, granting everyone over the age of 18 GBP100 to spend in bricks and mortar retailers in a bid to boost the high street. There is one week left to use the card before the December 14 deadline, with GBP116 million having been spent in the local economy using the card according to the department.

Any money which has not been spent before 14 December will be returned to the Department for the Economy. They also said around 3,500 verified applicants are being re-issued their cards after advising they had not arrived. The deadline to use the card was extended by two weeks at the start of November after tens of thousands were still awaiting verification on the system.

A Department for the Economy spokesperson said: "Most people will have had at least four weeks to spend their card and every effort is being made to ensure everyone who was verified receives their card and has enough time to spend it. "Around 4,700 people who were verified are due to receive their cards this week. A further 4,000 verified applicants are being re-issued with new cards through next-day delivery as they told us their cards did not arrive.

"Other emails received by the Department are still being checked to see if they relate to verified applications. "Over GBP116 million has been injected into the local economy so far as a result of this scheme. Encouraging figures from the Northern Ireland Retail Consortium have also shown that footfall on our high streets has significantly improved compared to other areas of the UK.

"The Department encourages everyone to fully spend their card right up to the scheme closing date." On Monday it was officially confirmed by Economy Minister Gordon Lyons that a GBP100 tourist voucher scheme has been scrapped. He said the Executive had not given its support to the 50% discount off a two-night stay in a local accommodation, after his departmental officials found it would not provide value for money.

Mr Lyons said he had urged the Executive to consider backing the scheme despite the value for money concerns, arguing it would have provided a "significant economic boost" to the struggling tourism and hospitality sector.

NI High Street Voucher: Almost 5,000 Spend Local cards to be issued this week ahead of deadline

A number of people across Northern Ireland are still waiting on their Spend Local cards to be issued ahead of the looming deadline. It has been revealed that almost 5,000 pre-paid cards will be issued this week before the spending deadline next Tuesday. Applications for the pre-paid GBP100 cards opened on September 27, with the initial deadline for spending them set for the end of November, before being changed to December 14.

"Other emails received by the Department are still being checked to see if they relate to verified applications. "Over GBP116 million has been injected into the local economy so far as a result of this scheme. Encouraging figures from the Northern Ireland Retail Consortium have also shown that footfall on our high streets has significantly improved compared to other areas of the UK.

"The Department encourages everyone to fully spend their card right up to the scheme closing date." UUP East Belfast MLA, Andy Allen, has called on the Economy Minister Gordon Lyons to further extend the spending deadline for the scheme. Mr Allen said: "I continue to be contacted by many people from across East Belfast and further afield who have still not received their spend local card despite applying at the outset of the scheme.

"Presently, the Department has set the 14th December as the deadline for anyone to spend their card, however, with just a week remaining those who have not received their cards will not be afforded sufficient time to avail of them. "It is my view that nothing is preventing the Minister from extending the spending deadline until the end of January 2022, which would allow ample time for the remaining cards to be received and spent. "I would therefore call on the Minister to bring forward an extension today to provide much-needed certainty for those still waiting on their cards."

Last month, the Department for Economy revealed that around 129,000 Spend Local cards that had been issued to people had not yet been activated.

Asda giving 10% discounts to emergency staff this Christmas

Emergency workers will be able to get a 10% discount at Asda this Christmas as part of a thank you to the nation. The supermarket will take 10% off shopping bills over the Christmas period for holders of a 'Blue Light Card' - a scheme providing NHS and emergency service workers with discounts at a range of retailers. The discount is available in all Asda's 633 stores across the UK until January 2, 2022 and includes food and drink, George at Asda clothing and homeware, toys, gifts and optical.

Blue Light card holders can receive the discount by presenting their card at the checkout. "Blue Light Card holders work in difficult and dangerous situations every day of the year to provide support to people across the UK who need it the most," said Asda chief merchandising officer Derek Lawlor. "We wanted to recognise this and thank them for everything they do by offering a discount in our stores this Christmas."

Blue Light Card CEO Tom Dalby said: "After last year's restrictions, this Christmas will feel particularly special for those who were unable to see their loved ones during the festive period in 2020.

"It's often the norm for so many of our members to work long hours in the run-up to the big day, but at Asda they can save so much time on their Christmas shop by buying everything under one roof." The Blue Light Card is a nationally recognised scheme which provides workers in the NHS, emergency services, social care sector and the armed forces with a range of discounts. Other businesses backing the Blue Light Card include Domino's and Starbucks.

Derek Lawlor, chief merchandising officer at Asda, said: "Blue Light Card holders work in difficult and dangerous situations every day of the year to provide support to people across the UK who need it the most.

We wanted to recognise this and thank them for everything they do by offering a discount in our stores this Christmas."
