Walmart has the Quirky + GE Aros Smart Window Air Conditioner for $149 shipped today. That’s more than 50% under the original $300 listing, $81 under the typical price over at Amazon, $50+ under the next best prices, $28 under our previous mention and the best price we can find.

The Quirky Smart Air Conditioner comes with a number of intelligent features that enable it to set the temperature just the way you like it, at just the right time. It is equipped with 8,000 BTUs of power and, according to Quirky, can easily cool a room up to about 350 square feet. There is a simple installation here as it should slide right into traditional window openings from 24.5 to 40.5-inches.

As we have mentioned previously, reviews are mixed on the Aros. But this is more than 50% off the original price, from a trusted retailer, and the best price we have ever posted. More details below and over on 9to5Mac:

Admittedly, I love coffee. All the different roasts, blends and ways to make it are so intriguing to me. There has been an influx of coffee makers recently that offer a variety of different solutions for getting your morning cup of joe. I’m not sure that I’ve seen one recently as eye-catching as the Pour-Over from Quirky. This line of products – named Poppy – also has solutions for feeding your pets and your baby (separately) and will even order new food automatically from Amazon when you need it. expand full story

Update (2/17 12:20pm): Still good… go go go!

Quirky, the company that helps investors bring their ideas alive, is slashing tons of its smaller items in celebration of President’s Day. Many items are discounted at least 50%, with some garnering even larger drops. Apply coupon code MOREQUIRKY during checkout to save an additional 25%.

All orders of $50 or more ship free, otherwise shipping costs vary. The additional 25% discount should help offset shipping costs.

For example, Metal Cordies are on sale for just $5, which is a 50% drop. I have the older rubber version and absolutely love how great it is at making sure none of my computer cables fall behind my desk. The updated metal style perfectly complements the anodized aluminum of most Apple products.

My favorite gift picks for this year include a couple smaller items that’ll complement your Apple setup, one to help you cut the cord and one to make you fall deeper into Apple fandom. Only one of my picks is priced just slightly north of $50, so any of them should be good for Secret Santa or stuffing some stockings.

Rather than pointing out this year’s obvious tech gift wins, I’ve gone with a handful of items that you probably overlooked and were most likely omitted from other gift guides you’ve read so far this year… expand full story

Update: The Quirky Aros smart window air conditioner has jumped to $279

Amazon offers the recently released Quirky Aros smart window air conditioner for $249 with free shipping, which is $51 below list, $30 better than its average selling price, and the best deal we have ever seen.

This GE-backed Quirky creation is a fresh take on one of the most unexciting appliances in your home:

Dumb window A/C units only give you two options: Leave the air on all day — while burning expensive electricity — or come home to nasty, stuffy summer heat. But not Aros; because Aros is smart.

Similar to the Nest Thermostat (on sale for $229), the Aros learns from your patterns (schedule, weather, budget) so it can be as efficient as possible. It can cool medium-sized rooms up to 350 square feet and fit windows from 24.5 to 40.5-inches.
