… the old man is shopping the Amazon Friday Sale….
What? Is that not how it goes? I thought it was.
Last week’s sale was a little weak. I’m hoping for better, today. Let’s take a look.
[Well, I made it through both Shoes and Electronics (Dear Amazon, That word, I do not think it means what you think it means. Just call it “Office Supplies,” you’ll feel better. Love, Mir) without finding anything. It’s not looking good.]
A couple of weeks ago I would’ve scoffed at the idea of towels being extra-absorbent, but now I’m eying this 6-piece towel set for $24.99 (not a bad price per towel) and reading the reviews which swear they really are very absorbent. Why? Because the cheapo towels I bought for camping actually seem to be water-resistant. Yes. Moral of the story: Sometimes it’s cheap for a reason….
This looks like a decent price on a memory foam pad if you’ve been considering one. (Or maybe, like me, you know a bed really needs a new mattress, but you’re wondering if a hundred bucks might buy you a few more years before you have to replace it.)
Hey, my favorite Anolon set and favorite Cuisinart set are still on sale. It’s good to know that you could at least get a great deal on pots and pans from Amazon, even when the Friday Sale is kind of off.
The professional-grade KitchenAid stand mixer is down to $299 again. I purr just looking at that thing.
I wasn’t sure what a Sea Beam Lantern was, so I clicked. Waterproof flashlights that float! at 3 for $15, I might have to call it a camping expense.
It looks like Amazon is going to continue with 50 MP3 albums for just $5 each for the month, rather than just five albums every Friday. That’s good news for music lovers because, hey, ten times the music (and savings) goodness!
And don’t anyone let my husband see that today’s Gold Box Deal is a weed whacker thing. It’s a good price, mind you, but those things sort of freak me out. Don’t ask.
I’ll go round up some other daily deals for today after I’ve had another cup of coffee. Or after I have a nap. Depends on how far it turns out to be to get to the kitchen….
