Your Prime Day Buys
Posted by: Ombligo
Date: June 21, 2021 08:47AM
Anyone buying today?

I bought some items from my wishlists. I was going to get them anyway, so may as well pay less. I also paid attention to those items in the outlet since many things there are carrying a 25% discount. Nothing sexy - wiper blades, air filters, and a three-way switch (well, if Newton may find a 3-way switch sexy...). Saved me around $20 all told.

Color me unimpressed. I've been looking to buy some additional Ring equipment, but the stuff I want isn't showing up as a Prime Day deal, and the prices from Ring themselves are actually better on a couple of items.

Got a good price on some high-speed SD cards which I was going to buy anyway but that's pretty much it.

Amz Warehouse with the 25% off for Prime members is where the real deals are.
"Amazon Renewed" & USED Like New (packaging damaged) seem to be the safest buys.
(Plus there's the free returns just to be really safe.)
ymmv

OK, I revise my previous statement ... was able to pick up a Ring refurb cam for $60 (this matches the price on Ring's own website when the refurb was on sale) and a used solar panel to go with it.

Ombligo,

Definitely a good time to buy a Ring alarm system if you're in the market for one. Very steep discounts.

FYI ... it looks like they're doing the +$10 on at least a $40 gift card promo for Prime subscribers again. The fine print says that it's only one redemption per Prime account-- but I went ahead and did it, and when I went through the checkout process, it said that I qualified. (I had done it the last time someone here mentioned it.) I figure at worst, that I won't get the $10, but why not give it a try... YMMV.

Was looking for a RAID enclosure, didn't like the Sabrent that was on sale, ended up going with OWC direct from our sponsors.

BTW, OWC is having a sale this week.

I got a bunch of firearm maintenance stuff, and some pistol bags.

Last month, there was a Prime Day credit of $10 if you purchased a $40 or more Amazon Gift card. So I did that, and sent it to my business e-mail. So free $10 there. And if you got the offer, or saw the banner on the Amazon page, if you linked your Discover card, and redeemed Discover points, you would get 40% off, up to $40, on items sold by, and shipped by, Amazon.

One of the pistol cases was $20 as a Warehouse item, down from $25, and for some reason there was a 25% further discount. So it was $15 instead of $25. And of course the free $40 on the just over $100 I spent. I redeemed 75 cents in Discover points, and got $40 off.

But since I already had that $40 gift card, and free $10, and the free $40 credit from the Discover Card, and some room on the discover card..... I win! smiley-music039

This was all stuff I have been waiting to buy for the last month..... just waiting.....

I bought a 34oz container of Planters's deluxe mixed nuts for $12.59, which seemed like a fair deal.

Got a generic replacement toner cart for my Brother MFC. Not a huge discount, but cheaper than usual.
