I went to Best Buy to see if they would price match an item on Amazon, she didn't even look at it. Said they can't price match Amazon during Prime Days. I said oh ok, and she asked me if I still wanted the item, I said nope, Ill get it from Amazon. LOL
You walked into a Best Buy for that?

Ring Cameras on sale.

$134 for the spotlight HD battery. Get a extra battery pack or a solar panel if you get enough direct sunlight.

Worth every penny. Thinking about upgrading the doorbell camera.

Heck of a deal.

I finally got a replacement Logitech MX Master for my original. At cheaper than the original one still goes for.

Worth it. Now when I put iPadOS on my new 2018 iPP, I can use the original MX Master I hope with it.

P.S.

I think all of you are missing the real significance & tragedy of the day...

It’s sad that #PrimeDay has become so commercialized that we’ve forgotten the sacrifice that this day is intended to honor.

An offer to install amazon assistant gave me £10 (which I uninstalled). As did signing up for Audible trial, cancelled as soon as I received credit. So free money, thanks Prime day!

So many of these deals aren't really deals. I love camelcamelcamel.com because it shows the historical prices of amazon products. So many items are not really discounted at all, and many are discounted a few bucks (but listed as discounted many bucks). I even found a weighted blanket that was cheaper before prime days.

I think I bought a glitch. $80 for a 5-camera/base/doorbell combo Arlo Pro setup when it first went live last night. It’s already shipped. Awesome... saved like $500.

Ah, Prime Day. The digital version of your local flea market. You may, MAY, find one or two gems, but the rest is trash.
It may not be trash but it's probably nothing I really need either. I usually set July aside as the month in which to pitch the most money towards the reserve for my winter heating fuel contract that I make at the end of August... so Prime Day is generally window-shopping only for me, and just as well I set that rule up front for myself. Otherwise it's too easy to get sucked into "oh wow, that's a lot less than I imagined it would be, maybe I should get it while it's cheap". Well maybe I should skip it and it's even cheaper?

Still the window-shopping can be fun. But...I just kill my browser if I start to get really interested.

Theres Definitely some gems in there if you look for them. I took advantage of their New gen Philips hue bulbs/echo deal for $60. Gonna sell the Dot for at least $20 easily and get two Hue bulbs for $40, instead of spending $90+ tax on the same kit.

Got an echo plus for £69 after they offered me their creditcard (which I'll cancel immediately). Time to get some smart bulbs on the go :)

No, it depends how long it takes and how much your time is worth. IDK about now, but the Prime Day deals were so lame the first time that I threw it into the "not worth my time" bin. Pizza sales a lot more worth; you save like 30% just for a quick Google search.

Original redacted post has a point.
