Amazon Prime Day - your loot ?

Recommended Posts

A kind of not so obvious kitchen tool that is really useful to me is these neodymium hooks.   I use them on metal surfaces (fridge, range, etc....) to hang all kinds of kitchen accoutrements, like tongs.   Prime day price is really good for these and they have uses just about everywhere you can have a metal surface.

Kitchen related, I got a pack of 2 stick up LED puck lights for under my kitchen cabinets. I have dark quartz countertops and at night the overhead light doesn’t do enough. They are rechargeable via usb outlet, as I hate the waste of disposable batteries.

I bought a ThermoPen digital meat thermometer and "The Food of Taiwan: Recipes from the Beautiful Island". I used a Prime Day $10 coupon for the book. I wanted Fuschia Dunlop's "Land of Fish & Rice" but it wasn't eligible for the coupon, sadly.

A Ninja air fryer which damn well had better justify the counter space it will take up!  I have named it Jumbo.

Just cook some burgers in Jumbo and you have a lovely clean countertop rather than greasy splatter to wipe up.

They are all gone.  There is a waitlist.

On day 2 of this year's Prime extravaganza, I looked through the deals and ordered a few household items that were Prime deals at very good prices (non-stick aluminum foil, 2.5 gallon zip-top bags, Method foaming soap refills, etc.) for a total of ~ $24 in "discounts"  and ordered Pok Pok Noodles with the $5 book deal.  Last week, I got an email saying the order would be a couple of days late.  Today, I got an email saying the package had been returned by the shipper and a refund would be issued and I should place a new order - yeah, at full prices!  

Sheesh!

I recently read a review of Pok Pok Noodles and it's just as well.  Save the $5 for something else.

Can't for the life of me remember where I read the review.

I think this would be arguable with Amazon.

Keep an eye here:

https://www.rcwilley.com/Appliances/Small-Kitchen-Appliances/Other/111161703/FirstBuild-Paragon-Induction-Cooktop-View

It's an induction hub with a Bluetooth probe/mat for semi-precision temperature feedback. I got a second backup unit from them in May when it was $99. Worth it. Not currently worth $350. Hopefully it will drop again.

 

It's at $99.

Speaking of which I have to love amazon pricing.  Today is payday and I ordered a Berndes pan* for $77.00 that had been about $160.00.  Immediately the amazon price jumped to $120.89.  I had never heard of Berndes but they seem to be well regarded on eGullet.

 

 

*mainly because I fancied the glass lid for another purpose.

Prime Pantry deal on King Arthur Unbleached Bread Flour if you want to stock up.

5 lb. priced @ $3.68.   Cheaper than local Walmart price in my area

Then there's a 20% coupon to clip.   It looks like this is only applied to 1 bag of flour per order. 

Then if you buy 5 you get additional 5% off, buy 10 get additional 10%, buy 15 get additional 15%.   You can buy 5,10, or 15 of various and assorted things and get the discounts,  This stepped discount ends 11/30/19

 

Caveat: for free shipping you must have a minimum of $35 in your Pantry box.

 

I tested all the max discounts with a qty of 15 bags in my cart and it looks like it came out to $3.13 per bag, delivered.  Not a bad price for bread flour to the door.

 

Edit:  It looks like all the King Arthur flours on Prime Pantry have a 20% coupon, ie, organic, cake, gluten free......

"Amazon is delaying Prime Day, its giant shopping extravaganza, until at least August"

Quote

Amazon is delaying Prime Day, its annual shopping extravaganza, until at least August, as the online retail giant scrambles to adjust its operations to the coronavirus pandemic, according to a Reuters report on Friday.

Amazon typically holds the event every July.

Or, Amazon is making so much money right now that they don't need to create a giant sale (discount period).

 

I've ordered a couple of things from Amazon recently and the shipping dates are longer than normal. They're busy. I feel sorry for the employees.

Amazon has already said they will currently only fill "essential" orders and the rest can wait. I've stopped all my orders until saner times.
