Smart locks usually involve a tedious installation process which can be intimidating for many, especially if you rent and don't want to lose that deposit. A good option to get around this is an August Smart Lock, which can be retrofitted on existing locks without much effort. Today's Father's Day sale knocks the price of the Smart Lock Pro's 'Smarter Hosting Bundle' down to $206, a whole 25% or $72 less than anywhere else.
If you want a smart speaker with a whole lotta sound, the Google Home Max sure is a good option. Originally $400, the speaker's price was later reduced by $100, and we've seen it drop to as low as $262 in a sale before. Today's Father's Day deal marks a new low — $242 for a Home Max, with a Home Mini thrown in for good measure. Read More
If your pop's idea of Father's Day involves home improvement, this ongoing promotion for Google Nest hardware might be of interest. Right now Google has a ton of its smart home hardware on sale for the upcoming holiday, notably including a rare discount on the Google Nest Cam IQ Outdoor, which can be had for $50 off ($300) for one, and $80 off ($518) if you get the two-pack.

T-Mobile is eager to get a head-start on Father's Day sales. In a new promo, the magenta carrier is allowing both new and existing customers to pick up a 2nd Galaxy S8, S8+, V20 or LG G6 for free with the purchase of their first one. There are terms and conditions associated with the deal, and the cost of the 2nd phone is reimbursed via a mail-in rebate, but it's not a bad offer if you've been looking to pick up a pair of the devices.

It's Father's Day. If you have a dad and you appreciate him, go have lunch with him. If he's too far away, call him on the phone, like people used to do before things like touchscreens and smartwatches and Taylor Swift. Don't send him a text message or IM that says "Happy Father's Day" - that's just so tacky. It's the communication equivalent of a last-minute drug store gift card.
If you decide to ignore this advice, and you send Dad a "Happy Father's Day" message through Hangouts, Google won't judge you as harshly as I will. In fact, they'll actually reward you with a series of custom animations, as is their wont for wide-reaching holidays lately. Read More
Dads love their music. Well, some dads do. And with Father's Day fast approaching, that makes now a good time to place an order for something that can make their music sound better and still have it arrive on time.
As a Father's Day Goldbox deal of the day, Amazon is offering a large selection of Bluetooth speakers with their prices cut. And we're not talking minor discounts. A speaker from House of Marley is going for $90 off, bringing the cost down to $130.
A couple, such as this one from Outdoor Tech or an option from NYNE, see discounts of $70. Read More
Father's Day is approaching, and if you plan on ordering something online, it's better to do so sooner rather than later. Today eBay is offering a coupon code to save $15 off purchases of $100 or more. Applicable products include goods in the home & garden, sporting goods, and tech categories, but naturally only one of those gets our interest around here. The code itself is C15FATHERSDAY.
The discount will apply to many things. One example is the 16GB Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4, which you can bring down to $185 by using the code. Others include a refurbished HTC One M8, which you can reduce to $205, and the original LG G Flex listed at $200. Read More
HTC's flagship phones are well known for their all-metal design, but that's not the only element that contributes to their style. Like its contemporaries, the M8 knows how to put on a new coat of paint. In just two days, Verizon Wireless will start offering the slick handset in a glamorous shade of red and an attention-grabbing shade of gold.
Since Father's Day isn't far off, Verizon's willing to part with any phone priced at $199.99 or higher (with a two-year contract) for $100 off. This includes the HTC One M8 in both of its new colors, along with the pre-existing shades of silver and gray that might just be more dad-friendly. Read More
If you thought yesterday's app/game sales post was all we'd have this weekend, think again. Just in time for Father's day, we've found even more apps and games to keep you (and those close to you on Dad's day) glued to your respective mobile devices all weekend. As usual, we'll keep the list up-to-date as we discover more sales!
Back in May, we teamed up with Samsung to offer one lucky person a chance to show their mum how much they care with a Galaxy Note II. Since dads are pretty awesome, too, we've once again joined forces with Sammy to give one lucky soul a chance to show his or her dad that he's the man with a Galaxy S4.
The Galaxy S 4 (our review) has all the things that a dad can appreciate – a good camera, a blazing-fast user experience, and more bells and whistles than you can shake a stick at (not sure why you'd shake a stick at something like bells and whistles in the first place though). Read More
