If you’ve ever bought anything from Buy.com, you get put on their mailing list for daily hot items. And I find that combing through this list each day is probably way more fun for me than it ought to be. Sometimes, there’s nothing, but other times, it feels like I won at a treasure hunt.
I saw two items of note this morning: First, this Uniden cordless phone set. I know we had one of these recently at the $40 price point, but this one is notable because—in addition to an answering machine and three handsets—one of the handsets is waterproof. Pool season is coming! (And it’s never a good season to drop your phone in the bathtub, either, so there you go.)
Second, today they’re offering the Magellan Roadmate 1412 GPS for $79.99 shipped, and this unit has Text To Speech, which is really hard to find for under a hundred bucks.
Both of these items are refurbished, but I prefer to think of them as being double-checked and cheap. You’re welcome.
