Logitech Harmony Elite (UK version) - $166.75 from Amazon.co.uk

Amazon.co.uk has a Deal of the Day for the Logitech Harmony Elite Remote for 115.83 GBP when shipped to the US (no VAT).

The Logitech Harmony remote features controls up to 15 home entertainment and connected home devices.

Shipping is only 4.95 GBP, and if you charge your card in USD - it comes out to $166.75, this beats last year's previous Front Page Deal at $168.75 - https://slickdeals.net/e/9428379-logitech-harmony-elite-remote-control-w-harmony-hub-168?#comments

Currently the Logitech Harmony Elite is $249.99 from Amazon.com

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Logitech...B014GXQOJ2

If you have a card with no foreign transaction fee (like the Amazon Chase Visa card) - you can get this for 120.78 GBP or ~$162 depending on your exchange rate from your card (Chase should charge you $161.10 in USD. I bought two and it charged me $318.27)


NOTE: This version of the Harmony Elite comes with UK Plugs, some folks have had success contacting Logitech who have sent them a set of US Plugs for free. Or you can use a converter from a UK plug to US plug which are pretty inexpensive. The Harmony Hub and Dock for the Elite remote are compatible with US voltage (120v). You can use ones like these for $1.49 each - https://smile.amazon.com/Ckitze-F...B002TZBW74

NOTE: Logitech apparently have started to region code the remotes even though there is no difference between this version and the USA version. You may need to use a VPN to change your IP address to allow the remotes to be setup. If you don't have a VPN service already - you can use a free VPN like https://windscribe.com/upgrade which gives you 10GB a month for free.

I wouldn't even do that. Just find some old micro USB chargers you've got lying around or buy some for cheap on Amazon/eBay. Both the charging cradle and the hub use standard micro USB connections (even in the EU version which I own)

YES - been waiting on this. I tried to buy it bundled with the echo and it would not allow me to ship to US. The remote alone does allow for US shipping

Thanks! Since I don't have one, I couldn't figure out if they use USB chargers or a hard wired plug. Makes it even easier, I have tons of Micro USB chargers lying around.

Region-coding a f**king remote?! Between this and the fiasco with the Logitech Harmony I'm thinking I'm going to find another solution... Now if Simple Remote came out with an Android app I would have switched already...

Yeah if you read the previous deal I linked in the original post, some people were getting a "Not made for North America" when they tried to set it up. But reported a simple VPN to change your IP location fixes it. I'm willing to deal with the trouble for almost $100 savings per remote.

Beware, if you have trouble setting it up due to the region coding, you will pay almost 40 in return shipping

Just ordered this, thanks!

I have a vpn and will run the setup that way, after you set it up can you run it just fine after with no vpn?

The US elite has been $150 (after returning bundled Google home) at Best Buy for like 2 weeks now. Am I missing something why one would want this instead?

Awesome, I've been waiting for a deal on the Harmony Elite for Black Friday. I'll just have to remember to get the VPN working once I receive it. We already have tons of USB chargers, so I won't worry about that. Thanks OP!

I don't have one, so I can't be sure but it sounds like it is just during setup and maybe when reprogramming it at most.

It also seems as if the issue is with the Harmony Hub not the Elite remote, so if you already have a Harmony Hub you could try simply adding the Elite remote to your hub and using the existing setup. I am not 100% sure though, maybe someone who already bought one last year can chime in?

From what I read in that thread returning the Google Home was a huge YMMV because the receipt specifically says it is a bundle and most CSRs wouldn't allow you to return just the Google Home.

Looks like deal is dead. Amazon UK have changed the price to GBP 139, which is $185.28. S&H extra for US.

Try adding it to your cart, 139 GBP is with VAT added. When you make the destination a USA address, VAT gets removed and the price drops to 115 GBP.
