Bought a bunch of real 4k blurays, a G502 for my office, and some weed killer.

Maybe pickup a couple Kindle Fire 10s if I can confirm I can get lineageos on them.

Finally bit the bullet and bought a replacement for my LG G4. Went with a Prime Exclusive version of the Moto G6 for $109.

The G4 has great features, but it is constantly overheating and even with a new battery struggles to get through a whole work day.

I bought TONS of stuff, ~$600 so far.

The only thing that I bought that was a prime deal was Aquaman and MI:Fallout.

The best thing, my Amazon Prime Visa gets 6% back on all purchases. (instead of the usual 5%)

Things for my new hobby...

CNC 3018Pro with 5.5 Watt Laser kit
Heat Gun and other 3D Printing doodads
Retainer vacuformer with algenate, trays, and casting material




Will most likely buy a new phone for the mom-in-law (she kills them every years or so!). So...LMK if you'all see a great deal on an Androider (thanks, Fleksta...can you give me the link? Best I can find is $148).

It didn't seem to show up in a regular search, but I found it when going through their Prime Day deals menu:

Picked up a new Firestick.

I got the first generation firestick many years ago and it is slow as balls. Hopefully the new one is much faster, more responsive.

Amazing Grass Green Superfood: Organic Wheat Grass and 7 Super Greens Powder, 2 servings of Fruits & Veggies per scoop, Original Flavor, 60 Servings

I also got the berry flavor, both at 40% off. It was sitting in "My list" and I guess that's why Amazon notified me of the deal. Pretty neat.

It looks like the deal i got is over. I suppose it was a flash sale.

I got a ultrasonic cleaner for our 3d printer.

That's about it. It's not looking like very good deals this Prime Day.

something for my slowly being bought computer build

Crucial MX500 2TB drive

$183



Pretty crazy price, blows everything out of the water atm in ssd's in terms of value.
0.0915 cents a GB
5 year warranty + a 700 TB written drive endurance is very very decent


My only concern is I think I may have bought the version with frustration free packaging and I wanted the retail pack. Ah well not a big deal.

I bought nothing. Prime Day deals are always worse than regular sales unless you're buying Alexa crap.

This.

It would be great if they'd have stuff I actually want to buy. But it seems largely oriented around consumer electronics.

Didn't really get anything, some things I needed anyways but in all honesty the deals were not great. And alot of them were still cheaper elsewhere.

I'm shopping less, and less at Amazon every day I find alot of their prices lately are grossly overpriced and there's alot of things I've been overcharged for due to me not shopping elsewhere. Best example was some PUMA socks paid $14 for 4 pair awhile back. Thinking it was a pretty good deal (yes was sold by Amazon). Until I went to Gordmans with the wife for something else and noticed the exact same socks for $6. Ever since then I've caught countless things from them. Only thing I really get now on Amazon is chinese crap I need (like barn door hardware). Things that are hard to find specifically to a task I need.

I can see me cancelling Prime pretty soon to be honest, the value just isn't what it use to be.
