Well either accept the inevitable or stop using tech in general because the world is going Wifi and Smart Home whether you accept it or not.

The Lutron caseta stuff is pretty great with no subscription cost. Uses its own frequency, works every time and integrates into home kit, Alexa, etc. Downside is that it needs to replace your light switches. Worth looking into if you are anti wifi clutter.

The standard AirPods at $114.00 is a decent price they’re offering. You’d probably not find them much more discounted than that factory new.

Amazon needs to rename this to "Amazon BS Day". Unless it's an Amazon-labeled product there haven't been much in the way of deals. Just over-hyped BS.

I got an 87 inch cat condo for the lowest price it has ever been. I maxed out my ram with some 3400 DDR4 sticks for $90. I got a year of switch family and a 128GB SD card for $30.

Do you have a link for the switch family and SD card?

My point is Amazon over-hypes Prime Day with misleading tactics giving the consumer the impression that everything is going to be on a big sale. Kinda like Amazon's version of Black Friday. It's not. I shutter to think how this forum would react if Apple pulled this false advertising crap. I wasn't just looking for trinkets under $100. I was looking for very expensive cookware and none of it was on sale. I even checked for printer ink and none of it was on sale.

Love my Caseta stuff. Has been rock solid. Changing out switches beats the alternative of changing every bulb with something like Hue. My dining room light has 8 bulbs. Minimum of like $120 with the cheapest Hue bulbs, or like $50-ish with a Caseta switch.

I started to change some bulbs but realized it was crazy. That’s not where it’s at.

It's all stuff that either didn't sell well at its original price point, is clearance, or a lesser known brand. There are gems in there, but you have to be flexable about what you are willing to accept. I use Prime Day to get things household products, cables, and things I will end up getting anyway. I have a wishlist full of items that didn't get a discount because they don't need a discount to sell them. I am surprised you didn't find any non-OEM ink though. I saw a ton of it on sale.

Meanwhile, it looks like the interns are running marketing for Target and BestBuy. Deal Day? Early Black Friday? Can you get more unimaginative than that?

The problem with non-OEM ink is that my printer (Canon) is very finicky with it. Unless it's Canon's ink it won't show the ink levels which is extremely important and often it won't even recognize them.
