re: Found a good deal on AirPods but wonder if it's a scam - RickAstley
About 2 months ago my dad was shopping for a specific HP printer. He googled the printer and one of the first three sites in the shopping results was a sketchy website that had the printer $100 off. He didn't want to deal with the hassle of it being a scam, but he very much wanted the discount. He c...

Financial Tips for New Parents - RickAstley
MT I am looking for general tips for a soon to be parent. I did not see a specific section in the MT Guide thread, and searching for threads hasn't been as straightforward as it seems. Outside of saving money, what would you recommend an upcoming parent do to help financially prepare for parentho...

re: Nest IQ Outdoor - $100.03 at Home Depot! - RickAstley
The items are likely to be marked down, but being 75% off is TBD. An item can enter clearance in the system but be marked down between 25%, 50% and 75%. There might be some other random discount stages in there as well. All the stores on the results page for me show clearance, but only one had th...

re: Sewage Smell in Laundry Room - RickAstley
Maytag Bravos. I ran a cycle with Affresh and there weren't any bad odors afterwards. The inside of the washer doesn't smell like it did either. I'll keep monitoring, but I think this might've been a dirty washer issue....

re: Electric Lawnmowers - RickAstley
I use a Ryobi 40v push mower and I've been very pleased with it. As mentioned, you will be replacing your batteries over time. I have found using ebay is a great way to save on batteries. Also, buying tools in the same battery family can save you money. I bought a hedge trimmer and a blower with a 4...

re: Sewage Smell in Laundry Room - RickAstley
The laundry room is on the first floor along with the master bath and kitchen. Since we first noticed the smell, we haven't done anything that involved a large volume of water draining all at once. The smell appears after doing laundry, but goes away after an hour or so....

Sewage Smell in Laundry Room - RickAstley
The last two times we've run laundry, a sewage smell has originated from the laundry room (I'm not 100% certain of this, but it is where the smell is strongest). Any thoughts on what I should look for? Should I just call a plumber and not even wait another day?...

re: Getting started in home automation...suggestions needed - RickAstley
I'd recommend starting off small and building your way up. And also stick to name brands that have been around for more than a couple of years. As you expand, you will want to strongly consider a hub if you want to start including sensors into your ecosystem. The good news is just having a smart spe...

re: Wink Moving to a Monthly Subscription UPDATE - Deadline Extended - RickAstley
I've been using a Samsung Smartthings hub for nearly 2 years now. I had 0 problems transitioning from Wink to Samsung as far as getting devices paired and setting up routines. The interface is different, but overall it is easy to learn. Like some of the others have said, if you want a more DIY ap...

re: Questions about Longer-Term Storage (drives) - RickAstley
I'd be very cautious about the YouTube route. All it takes is one person to report a complaint about one of your videos for YouTube to pull the plug on your account. Unlikely to happen based on what you're describing, but we are all targets on the internet. It would be a shame to lose your footage i...

Ideas for Old Cellphone - RickAstley
I upgraded my cellphone over Christmas, and I have an old Samsung Galaxy S8 laying around. I want to hold onto it as a backup in case my new phone craps the bed (or gets broken). In the meantime to keep it in use, I've been thinking I could use it as a smart home remote for guests that stay at my ho...
