Hungry for Friday?

So, just in case you thought it was your imagination that the Amazon Friday Sale seems to be shrinking lately, go take a look. Today it’s only one category! Amazon, what the heck??

Look, I’m not saying there aren’t any deals to be had. But it’s kind of disappointing, nonetheless. Sure, they have Oskri bars for $13.60 shipped after Subscribe & Save, and that’s a great deal (plus I love me some Oskri), but I’m not sure that’s enough. And yes, fine, I’m actually running low on our beloved Designer Vanilla Whey (I don’t know if it’s “designer,” but I do know it doesn’t contain the artificial sweeteners and chemicals most other whey does) and two pounds of it for $17 is a great price, but still. And I suppose that a 24-bar variety pack of Clif Kid Zbars for $9.34 shipped after Subscribe & Save is pretty good, too. But still. These things do not a Friday Sale make, Amazon.

No. No. Don’t try to make it up to me with February’s 100 MP3 albums for just $5 each, Amazon. You’ve crossed the line this time.

Check out today’s Target Daily Deals, instead, maybe. They’ve got a glider and ottoman just like the one that I spent my kids’ infancy rocking them in for just $135. Use coupon code URTYJLI8 for another 10% off, too. Or check out those wireless speakers, if you don’t have a baby to rock. Heh.

Meanwhile, over at, today’s deals cover Reef, Steve Madden, Vaneli, Penny Loves Kenny, and more. I don’t know about you, but I may need a new pair of shoes to cheer myself up after that pitiful Friday Sale showing.

If you need another daily deal fix, did you know that Meijer has a Daily Steal? It changes every day at noon, and like the others of its ilk, it always ships for free. Right now it’s a portable elliptical thing, but check back midday for another option.

Well, I’ve got my coffee and I’ve ordered some whey. It’s not an awful start to the day, but I am still making very stern eyebrows in your direct, Amazon. Hmph.


  1. I notice the list of “Today’s Deals” categories on the left is pretty long, and looking briefly into a couple of them, the prices are Friday-sale-ish. Looks like they might be transitioning or something. Having said that, this is a huge time-waster. So, I guess we’re done with this.

  2. If anyone has a Keurig, The Sale does have a fantastic deal on K-Cups. 50 for $18.50. I paid $10 for 18 last night, so I obviously stocked up this morning!

  3. Is it just me, or does that portable eliptical thing look like an accident waiting to happen? I’d fall off it within 10 seconds guaranteed!

  4. I took a VERY deep breath and ordered the glider. The extra 10% off helped seal the deal.

    Please let this not jinx our adoption!

  5. Thanks for the notice on the whey – ordered 2! We love it for our smoothies!

    And apparently I had a lot of coffee this morning! So, here’s a few more exclamation points for you!!!

  6. I can’t believe you didn’t mention the Pirate’s Booty! 12 4 oz bags for $18.40 with S & S. I’m happy! 🙂
