by

As we head into the weekend, there are a few notable discounts and offers happening at various online retailers, including sales on the HomeKit-compatible Eve Room, Anker's new 5-in-1 USB-C hub, Best Buy's tax refund sale, and more.

Eve Room

For a limited time on Amazon, you can get $10 off the new Eve Room indoor air quality sensor on Amazon, knocking the price of the sensor down to $89.95 from $99.95 and representing the first discount on the device. The Eve Room includes full HomeKit support, allowing you to track the air quality, temperature, and humidity inside your home.

Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with some of these vendors. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

The sensor sports an e-ink display with an anodized aluminum body, which displays your favorite readings so you can easily glance at data when nearby. Thanks to the ‌HomeKit‌ support, you can ask Siri for readings of your home's air quality and temperature on iPhone, iPad, HomePod, and other Siri-enabled devices. Head to Amazon to check out more information on the Eve Room.

Anker 5-in-1 USB-C Hub

Anker recently launched a new 5-in-1 USB-C Hub with Power Delivery, and the company has also shared a discount code on the device. If you head to Amazon and add the accessory to your cart, then enter the code ANKERC32 in the checkout screen, you can get the 5-in-1 Hub for $29.99, $13 off from $42.99.

This accessory is aimed at USB-C enabled modern MacBooks, providing access to additional ports including 1 standard SD card slot, 1 microSD card slot, 1 USB-A charging and data port, 1 USB-A data port, and 1 USB-C charging port. It also comes with a travel pouch.


In terms of pass-through charging, the Anker Hub has a maximum input of 60W, with 13W given to the device's operation. This leaves up to 47W pass-through charging for the MacBook when you're using other ports on the 5-in-1 Hub. For MacBook Pro, this will charge Apple's premium laptops, albeit at a slow pace.

iTunes Movies Sale

Apple is constantly updating iTunes Movies around various holidays and events, and this week has been no different. To celebrate International Women's Day, shoppers can browse a collection of movies focused on powerful women, all priced under $10.

For a limited time, Philips is offering shoppers a chance to get the Hue Bridge for free when they purchase a Hue Play double pack along with the Hue Bridge. The Hue Play double pack runs for $129.99 and the Hue Bridge is priced at $59.99, so you'll be paying $129.99 for both products when purchased together.

I have the Hue bridge, it's not that stable, zigbee is less stable than Z-wave, had plenty of trouble with it.

I've had a Hue bridge for 3 years. Not a single problem with it that entire time.
