If you’re looking to step up your TV game and make watching movies and gaming more immersive, Govee offers a range of colorful lighting kits that also make for great holiday gifts. One of its most appealing products are the Immersion TV LED backlights, which sync to whatever you’re watching on your 55-inch or 65-inch screen, making it appear as if the TV colors are bleeding out of the frame and onto your walls. Responsive LED strips like these are typically expensive, but right now Govee’s 2020 backlighting kit costs just $61 once you clip the $10 off coupon at Amazon. That’s the kit’s best price to date.
Prefer not to shop at Amazon? Govee is selling this product direct for $63. There’s a newer version of these lights, which farther extends the backlighting with Light Bars. Typically $150, you can buy this one for $130 from Govee or for $140 from Amazon when you clip the on-page coupon.
If you intend to gift these to multiple people, Govee is additionally taking 5 percent off your purchase total when you buy two, 10 percent if you buy three, and 15 percent off if you buy five of them. Use the promo codes XMAS5, XMAS10, and XMAS15 depending on the amount you’re purchasing. We found that both the 2020 model and this year’s version offer great value for the money, even before the discounts.

If you don’t mind buying refurbished, Sonos is discounting several products right now. For those interested in the Sonos Beam, the first generation is selling for $319 as opposed to $399, the full retail cost when purchased new. Although the soundbar lacks support for Dolby Atmos like the second-gen model, we found it’s still a competent smart speaker that shares many features in common with the newer version. Sonos is also discounting the third-gen Sonos Sub, selling it for $599 refurbished. That is $150 less than if you were to purchase the wireless subwoofer new. The second-gen model, typically $699, is also selling for $549.
All of the products in this sale will arrive in a box with all original accessories and cables, and they’ve been certified directly from Sonos. That means the company has tested and given each an internal and external cleaning and inspection. They also come with a one-year warranty and a 45-day money-back guarantee.
