Now Food52 I think prompted me to the seasoned Lodge 10" cast iron for $15. All my lovely vintage Griswolds are buried so deep in storage I'll never see them until that is emptied.  Maybe maybe. Good size for a singleton.

that’s pretty spectacular value - one of those would set me back the equivalent of about $75 here in the uk

That's a pretty good deal - if I only didn't have a Blendtec, I'd be all over it.

Haven't  bought a thing. Just paid to have the a/c fixed, so disposable cash is in shorter supply, and there was nothing I really needed. Noticed there seem to be several makers of steam/convection ovens now, just in browsing.

Got an SD Card for my Fire Tablet to back up the excess  9_9 cookbooks I have downloaded into it. Price was 25% off.

 

CamelCamelCamel has been invaluable to me. I look something over on Amazon and then check the price history on Camel only to see the posted "sale" price isn't the best price. Saved me money a number of times...

I bought 1.1 kg of Blue Diamond Smokehouse Almonds for $1.38.

 

The sad part, having nothing to do with Prime Day or food, I ordered a limited edition Roy Andersson blu-ray collection from amazon UK.  But I got free shipping!  And then King Arthur Flour Baking offered me 10 percent off their stuff.

I've noticed this recently.  I ordered some of my beloved Gardena brand yard equipment from Amazon, and I got free Prime shipping from Amazon Germany!  At a cheaper cost than the equipment in the Amazon US.  Something must have changed recently for Amazon Global ordering.   So if you've ever wanted stuff from Amazon EU but were put off on the shipping price, look again.  It may now have free Prime shipping.

Just showed up. It is lovely. Oddly the toaster oven I ordered first has arrival "by 10pm today". As much as I complain about backup beepers they do let you know a truck has arrived and turning around in driveway.

Amazon where you are sells alcohol?

 


Amazon Germany sells alcohol - and on Prime day at interesting prices (at least for some that I was interested in) …

Amazon once tried selling wine here but they soon dropped the idea.  Possibly because each state in the US has their own constitutionally enshrined alcohol regulations.

In Canada we saved a bunch of money, because Amazon didn't have "Prime Day" due to a number of fulfillment centres closing due to Covid 19 outbreaks.

I had to send back 2 of the Prime Day purchases for a strange reason, the product description was wrong.  ! ordered a hose fitting that was described and pictured as metal even on the package, but when it came it was plastic.   The other was a mug that said it was silicone (I bought it for camping/roadtrips) and when it arrived it was ceramic.  It was a nice mug, but wrong material.

 

Hopefully 2 of these issues does not make a trend.  I will say the new "drop off at Whole Foods" Amazon returns is painless and easy.

Indeed.

 

but then you have to go to WF.

 

I won't say WF is a BlackHole , draining your financial accounts.

 

but it certainly is The Event Horizon .

Amazon personally sends UPS

 

to my door to pick up their stuff.

 

probably  because Im Special

 

and currently pretty hot.

Whole Foods has a beer bar.  I take returns to Whole Foods, I then have a great beer.  There is no downside.  UPS does not provide this service to me as of yet.

 

Seriously, for a UPS pickup, call amazon and ask.  For some returns I see UPS pickup as an option on the return screen.  Here they do not offer UPS pickup for lightweight or inexpensive items.  My favorite return method (at least for something I can carry) is UPS Store dropoff.  There is no need to pack the item or to prepare a packing slip.  Amazon issues a refund immediately.  Granted the local UPS Store does not offer a beer bar.  Although it is conveniently located a few doors down from my friendly wine and spirits monger.

From CNN:

"Amazon is starting Black Friday deals early. Like, now"

Quote

Black Friday isn't for another 53 days. For Amazon, however, it starts today.
Amazon has begun rolling out "Black Friday-worthy deals" to jumpstart the holiday shopping season that's expected to be chaotic because of shipping and supply chain issues. Amazon announced Monday "deep discounts across every category" including fashion, home goods, toys and electronics that will be available on a special webpage.

There is more info in the rest of the article.
