Prime day, black friday, cyber monday etc are all bs sales looking to offload old subpar shit. They reel consumers in with a few good limited deals and the rest is usually shit.
That's one way to look at it. It's usually a great time to get last-gen tech at (sometimes) very favorable pricing. Stuff that still suits needs very well - for example, streaming devices.Prime day, black friday, cyber monday etc are all bs sales looking to offload old subpar shit.

That and sell Amazon ecosystem items, Kindle, Fire stick, Echo, anything that brings you back to them to buy more stuff.
Holy Schnikes! 80 bucks. I paid $1300 for 32" Samsung 720p LCD back in 07. Amazing the reduction in price overtime.I could use another 4K Fire Stick. But I don't want to pay more than $20 for one. I did score a nice 32" TV for $80 from Amazon last week.
Yes, that's how sales work.
There are a few ways to fix that. Electrical tape is one option, or black felt. Although $15 is not bad.I bought an echo input for the home theater for $15. It can control the lighting without emitting light of its own. My current echo dot’s ring light lights up my blacked out theater every time it hears noise (which is all the time in a movie)
They go on sale every other month. I ended up paying $40 for mine. I got last gen's version because it's supposedly better than the newest one, from Amazon Warehouse (new with damaged packaging), and then 20% off because I paid with my amex.meh hopefully the kindle paperwhite goes on sale, i missed out on the last one and really want one but not paying 150 dollars for it..
Honest question only because I was looking at these a few months ago...what does that one do significantly better than this one?I got a Sonicare Toothbrush for 1/2 off (99 vs 199)
It's currently onsale for 169 and it hits 99 every now and then, but I think 99 is a pretty good price for an item that will last me several years.
If I had to guess, I'd say a few more brush modes, but I"m not sure. Truth be told, this one is missing the mode I like best on my old model, which is refresh mode. It does 15 seconds x 4 instead of 30x4. I like that, because then I just run it 1 for the bottoms and 1 for the top, but apparently it's been removed from more recent models.Honest question only because I was looking at these a few months ago...what does that one do significantly better than this one?
Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 4100 Eletric Rechargeable Toothbrush, Plaque Control, Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B078GVMVRH/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_SxbkDb9EKRHMP
Seems like an excellent value for a brush that will clean at least 95-97% as well as anything out there.
You, sir, just gave me a reason to give a shitLast year they had some pretty dope deals on wireless tools and batteries. I got a few 5 amp Milwaukee and Makita batteries for less than $70 a piece. I'll be looking again as I could always use another grinder, impact or sawzall.
I found some decent deals myself, the time finally came to update my badly aging network. Picked up an Asus RT-AC86U for $118 and a three pack of Lyras for $130 to use as AiMesh nodes. Moving soon into a two-story home w/ a basement, hoping this combo will be sufficient to achieve a solid wifi signal on all three floors.The Amazon Warehouse Deals 20% discount is pretty good so far (https://www.amazon.com/s?bbn=16931836011&rh=n:16931836011). Usually they have a lot of marked up or unpopular stuff when they run this deal, but so far have found a few good deals.
Think I can finally put the Hyper 212 EVO to rest after what seems like a decade with a MSI Cooling Core Frozr XL ($55 with discount).
Hopefully it lasts me as long .
