%name Amazon somehow still has Echo Dot refurbs in stock at their lowest price ever by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

We’ve told you about a killer sale happening on Amazon a few times this week. In a nutshell, Amazon is clearing out refurbished smart speakers ahead of the release of the hotly anticipated new Echo Show. We’ve seen some seriously great prices on items like the refurbished Amazon Echo, which is still only $135 right now. Even better than that, however, is the discount Amazon is offering on refurbished Echo Dots. For just $38 a piece, you can snag as many Echo Dots as you want and fill your home with Alexa. Refurbs are fully certified by Amazon and they come with warranties, so you’ve really got nothing to lose.

%name It’s pretty crazy how good Nintendo Switch sales have been so far by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

This time last year, people would have laughed in your face if you merely suggested that Nintendo was about to launch the hottest home video game console in the world. The Wii U was in its death throes, its position cemented as one of the most disappointing gaming machines in recent history.

Fast-forward to today, and it’s still impossible to get your hands on a new Switch console unless you’re willing to pay a premium to order one right now on Amazon.

We’ve seen evidence time and time again of just how impressive Switch sales have been so far, but now there’s a single new data point that will really put Switch sales into perspective.
