Samsung currently is running a promotion on their SmartThings accessories for the NVIDIA SHIELD TV. They have the SmartThings Link USB stick on sale for $9.99 when you use the coupon code SHIELDLINK at checkout. Normally $40, this $30 sale is a rarity for Samsung. Shipping is free on orders of $25+.

They also have the SmartThings Lighting Kit on sale for $49.99 shipped when you use the coupon code SHIELDBUNDLE at checkout. This is down from the retail price of $90, and again not a normal thing for Samsung, especially for new products.

These products are brand-new to the Samsung and NVIDIA lineup, with a very recent launch. There are no consumer reviews for these products yet due to their new launch, but Samsung and NVIDIA generally receive great reviews.
