Home Depot has partnered with Overstock.com to offer free shipping on all orders of $500 or more, as well as free shipping in select areas, for a limited time.
Home Depot will also give away one free full-sized Amazon Echo smart speaker to a lucky winner.
The offer is limited to orders placed through August 26, 2018, and will last through the end of the month, according to the official promotion.
Overstock founder and CEO Max Levchin is a big fan of Amazon and says it’s an excellent place to shop.
Over the years, Levchin has worked with Amazon on everything from online video to video game consoles to books and more.
He told me he was looking forward to spending some time in the home automation world.
“I’m looking forward for my children to have a new toy, to have an experience with toys, and I’m looking for a home that I can go into,” he said.
“I want my kids to have the opportunity to have some of the best experiences possible, but I also want them to have my toys, which is exactly what Amazon has provided.”

(Overstock) Levchin’s interest in Amazon is obvious.
He has worked on numerous projects for the online retailer, including an entire home automation system for a customer.
In 2013, he also worked with the company on the Echo Dot, a speaker that can play music from Amazon’s Echo Music service.
“When you’re not working with an Amazon team, you’re always trying to do things on your own,” Levchin told me.
“You’re always looking for ways to get your ideas into production.
You can see how this technology has been used to create a new home automation experience, and it’s incredibly helpful.”
He also believes that a lot of smart home products come down to software.
He recently talked to me about a project where the team at Amazon decided to turn his Echo into an alarm clock, and the results were stunning.
“They took that idea, they had it in the palm of their hand, and they were able to take the idea and apply it to the world of smart devices,” Levch said.
He said Amazon is a great company for anyone looking to make the leap to smart devices, but he’s also not too keen on going through all of the hoops and risks that go into making a product like an Echo.
“A lot of the time, the process of trying to create the product, or the design of the product that you want to do, it’s just not really that straightforward.
And when you’re trying to sell something that’s going to be used in hundreds of thousands of homes across the country, you don’t really have a great idea of what the market is going to look like,” he explained.
“So I don’t think there’s any reason why it’s not worth the effort and effort to just have the best product that Amazon has to offer.”
While it may not be the smartest idea, it does work out for the best.
I asked Levchin if there are other smart home devices that could potentially be made cheaper, and he told me that it’s definitely possible.
“There are smart products that have a lot more features than the Echo,” he told my colleague.
“And that’s not just because there are more features, but because you have the ability to make them cheaper.
There are a lot cheaper alternatives.”
Levchin said he’d love to see smart home ideas made into something more affordable, but the real issue for his customers is the potential loss of privacy.
“What’s happening right now with smart home technology is that the government is trying to regulate this stuff,” he argued.
And if you don;t, you’ll be able to see what you’re doing on this system. “
If you don, you will be locked into the system for life.
