So many top-selling products have been discounted lately at Amazon, from best-selling Powecom KN95 face masks and Purell hand sanitizer pump bottles to AirPods Pro and just about anything else you can think of. In fact, we can’t even remember the last time we saw so many fantastic deals on Amazon, and it’s providing a much-needed break from everything else going on in the world right now.

Anyone who follows BGR Deals has undoubtedly been saving a ton of cash lately. That means you have some extra money to pick up something fun for yourself! There’s one deal in particular that you should check out at Amazon because it’s one of the best-selling smart home gadgets of the season — and you can basically get it for free thanks to a special promotion.

When the Chamberlain MyQ smart garage door opener was first released, it cost $100 and it was worth every cent. This awesome device installs in under 20 minutes and lets you open and close your garage door using your smartphone or even just your voice, thanks to Alexa support. Whether you never want to wonder again if you remembered to close your garage door as you rushed to work or you’re just sick and tired of dealing with that annoying keypad that never seems to work on the first try, the MyQ is an awesome purchase. It also works with Amazon’s Key service for in-garage deliveries, and you can get a $30 Amazon credit if you enter the promo code KEY30 when placing your first Amazon Key order.

Chamberlain’s MyQ smart garage door opener is back in stock right now and it’s down to the same $29.92 price that it cost during Cyber Week last year. But if you also take advantage of that Amazon Key promotion, you’ll pretty much get a MyQ from Amazon for free!
