Amazon is gearing up for Prime Day 2021 — which is happening on Monday, June 21st, and Tuesday, June 22nd — by releasing some teaser deals for Prime members. Today’s big deal is on the Eero 6 mesh Wi-Fi 6 router. It’s normally $129, but you can get one for $83. This is a good starting point if you have plans to build a multiroom mesh Wi-Fi system to blanket every corner of your home in reliable internet access.
This router has two ethernet ports, one for a modem and another for any other device you’d prefer to have wired for the fastest speeds. The Eero 6 claims to cover 1,500 square feet with Wi-Fi signal, and you can easily add another one to your network to expand coverage.
If you want to dive into the Eero ecosystem more fully, Prime members can also grab a three-pack of Eero’s latest networking gear for the best-ever price. Get a router plus two extenders for $181 (originally $279). Note that the extenders (usually $89 each) lack ethernet ports, but it’s still a good deal if you want Wi-Fi all over your home.
Facebook’s latest Portal smart display is $100 at Amazon and Best Buy, dropping well below its original $179 price. Previously, the best-ever price was $130. We’ve recommended displays like these several times during the pandemic, but they’re useful to have for more normal times, too. With this model, you can jump into video chats with friends and family on Facebook or WhatsApp or with work or fun meetups over Zoom. This model can find you in the frame by panning and zooming automatically as you walk around the room. It also features Alexa integration for smart home control or just to ask Alexa a question.
