I hope they actually do a video game and movie calendar like they have in the past. I used to get a bunch of that stuff at Amazon, but when it changed last year (?), it made it too difficult to find and track the deals, so I went elsewhere. I haven't even bothered renewing Prime yet.

I would love that but don't think they are doing it since we haven't seen anything yet

Thanks! Grabbed my Paperwhite and a case. One more thing off the list. Now I’m just waiting on the $29.99 Dots (from somewhere) as far as Amazon goes.

I'm still waiting for the Dots and the Fire HD8. But mama is getting the HD10, so she will see the message from me in the morning when she gets up. She's been asking when it would be available to purchase. Thanks Brad!

For the next couple hours if you have an Alexa device you can order most (all?) of Amazon's device BF deals (Echo, Kindle, Fire, etc.):

(or you can wait and order them through GD when the actual sale starts :P )

It seemed like you could order through the Amazon app ( I got a push notification) but you can’t

Will more DVDs be added to the lightening deals as the day goes on? I'm not at all impressed with the ones they have listed right now

Yes. Usually the popular ones hardly give any notice. You can't just check out the Upcoming deals, but have to keep coming back every hour to see if more are scheduled. It sucks.

Ok I will remember that so they add more popular ones at the top of each hour? That way I know when to check

Lol, no. Just randomly I've found it. I just try to go back every hour to see if the list updated.

I can't get my cart to load. The page acts like it is finished loading, but then there's nothing there. 

 

 

The last 12 hours have been a nightmare for online shopping.

Don't forget if there's something you don't think will be on sale to still check... Two things on my list I didn't think would be discounted are $50 off today! Hooray!

Might pick up more tomorrow, but usually they try to get in there before you go shop at the other guys.... times are changing, though.

Has anyone tried clicking on the "Free TV Wall Mounting on Select LG TVs" on Amazon?  It only shows free setup for fitness equipment.  It's on page 9 of the Black Friday section under electronics.

Can't post exact details, but Amazon is going to have a lot of deals tomorrow. Seems like way more than today.

 

Some vague details on their Gold Box daily deals:

 

- Ring stick-up camera & solar panel bundle

- Segway miniPro

- Instant Pot Duo 80 8-Quart (lowest price ever, by quite a bit...)

- watches from top brands

- Garmin vivosmart HR+

- TP-Link smart home & networking

- Asus

- toys from Barbie, Hot Wheels, WWE, Disney & more

- Under Armour

- gaming laptops & hardware

- furniture, mattresses & rugs

- Dremel

- Jeans

 

and those are just a few

I hope so. Thus far their lightning deals have been horrible. Typically I spend a thousand plus at amzon and as of right now I am at like 150.00.

Anyone else feel this way or is it just me?
