Oh boy.


Good deals on Amazon services, though. Kindle unlimited, audible, and Amazon music all on trial Deals at good prices.


Couple of sites have done an in-depth analysis of the prime day sales for 2015 and 2016. What they found was the selection was much more limited than the Black Friday sales and there was a lot of weird stuff on sale that most people weren’t very interested in. But of the big items that were on sale, like a few televisions, a few Xbox Models, A few small kitchen appliances, A few personal care items like shavers, the prime day prices were mostly equal to or better than Black Friday.

So you didn’t get that sense that there was a lot of great stuff on a lot of great sales, but if you happen to see something that you like, the special day price probably was a bargain.


Also remember that last year Walmart, target, and Best Buy already all ran some sales to compete with Amazon, so it’s worth checking them as well. Again, limited number of items, but decent prices.

Really want an Echo Show but then again, maybe I don’t. Will see if Prime Day pushes me over the edge.

And the $20 credit for getting the wand last month


XBet ceramic Magnets, 18mm, north side marked. These will be a prime day deal at around 6 AM Eastern time. Not sure what the deal price will be yet. But these are good quality, a good size for home automation projects, and good value at the regular price.

Grade 5 (9 kg Pull force)

Two: safety notes:

  1. These are ceramic, they will shatter if you drop them on a hard surface

  2. Like all magnets, these are very dangerous if swallowed by a child or pet. So don’t just leave the box around, keep it secured.

Just tried to order a couple dots but only one came with the $15 off. I guess it is only one per customer at the lower price?

(Realy Living Dream) #20

so order 1 white & 1 black ?

Say Alexa, add a black echo dot to my cart. Then go to your cart and see if you can adjust the number there
