@mfladd@mike808 It is “right”. I used to take people camping (Outward Bound, college outdoor programs) for a living and total have probably spent 5 or so years of my life living in a tent via my job. Moisture comes in via the thread holes in the seams. Some of the really expensive tents come already with seam seal applied. The rest of us cheapskates have to apply it ourselves.
3. We'll drop the price of one shirt to $0 at checkout.
4. It's only for Prime Members.
5. It's only this weekend: June 30 - July 1, 2018.

Walmart and Amazon both have the Nikko Air Elite 115 race set for $14.97. the set includes a micro drone (115mm diagonal span), controller, and a set of gates and flags to build a race course.
This drone is not FPV like the bigger Nikko from May’s deals thread but it does include Nikko (easy) mode, auto leveling mode, and full acro flight modes just like its big brother. It is also betaflight compatible and also should include the ability to download the very nice DRL Simulator and use the drone controller to fly on the computer for free.
@ruouttaurmind I have them both but haven’t taken the black one out of the box. They make different noises but probably not much else. I think they have different responses to the movies though- need to try that out.
The black B.B. unit has lights in its head and bb-08 doesn’t.
I’m pretty sure that’s the case, but possibly for Prime members who don’t have Audible membership?? I seem to recall I could still purchase Audible Daily Deal once I let my Audible membership lapse. Or maybe I’m making that up.
@compunaut He’s very into Lego, and has many thousands of bricks. That’s kind of my brother’s go-to thing. Every b-day or Christmas is accompanied by Legos.
And I agree withSabre99. If you were ever interested in Legos, you will always be interested in Legos.
I haven’t fussed with them myself in years, but I kinda want to get one of the Technic sets. Either the Porsche or the VW T1. Maybe the Supercar kit. Or the Bugatti… Ok, so just about any of the Lego Technic kits I guess.
2. At precisely 4pm CT on Tuesday, July 3, we will launch the deal with a price of $1. Click on the deal, and try to get it. There are just a few at this price.
3. If you don’t get the deal for $1, then click back to the page and wait to refresh your browser at the next launch time. If you're on the Woot! app, then click back to the main "Featured" deals tab at the top, and click the WTF banner again to refresh the page.
4. At precisely 4:10pm CT, we will launch the deal with a price of $2.50. Again, there are just a few at this price.
5. Repeat Step #3.
6. At precisely 4:20pm CT, we will launch the deal with a price of $4.
7. Repeat Step #3.
We think you get the idea. Every 10 minutes we will keep raising the price in increments, eventually landing on the final Woot price of $9.99 (which is still a great deal). So, if you don't wanna play, you can wait for about an hour and get the deal at $9.99, until the deal ends at 5pm CT (if it hasn't sold out yet at the lower prices). But if you're feeling lucky, have some time to kill, and like hitting F5, then let's do this. GOOD LUCK!
Also, let’s set some expectations so you don't get mad:
• WTF Pricing is for this one offer only.
•When you click on the offer, you might be ushered into Woot's Vestibule of Patience, the queue of customers who are trying to order.From there, you'll either be taken to the checkout page, or our servers will hiccup and kick you out to Woot's main page.
•There are only a few quantities at each price point. Each level will sell out really quickly. Most likely you're not going to get one for $1. Or $2.50. BUT YOU NEVER KNOW.
• You may get a message that your order has been denied or canceled. This just means that we ran out of inventory at that price before we could complete your order. Most likely this is going to happen, so just be ready for the disappointment.
And hey, if you ARE lucky enough to get the deal at one of the crazy-low prices, post about it in the thread below, or on social media, so other Wooters don't think this is some bait and switch deal. We can say it's not, but the internet never believes anyone. Help a Woot out, OK?
@sammydog01 Fair point. But the bloom quickly fades when quantities are so limited there’s very little chance to get the item being chased. It’s proportionate. As I suggested, the higher the value of the quarry, the more thrill delivered by the chase. Even an unsuccessful chase, in my case. Fun to have played, even if not won.
In early preparation for Prime Day, Amz is offering 20% off your purchase (limited to “sold by Amazon” items) when you pay for a portion of your purchase with American Express reward points. Maximum benefit is $100 discount.
You must activate the offer:
Link your AMEX rewards account to your Amz account
Make a special note of this fine print in the offer details: This promotion starts at 12:00 am PST on July 2nd, 2018 and ends when Amazon elects to end the promotion. In other words, don’t let the grass grow under your feet. Use it or risk loosing it.
@ACraigL@ruouttaurmind Been a while since I signed up for this, but my recollection:
Yes, I think you sign up for Twitch & somehow link your Amazon acct (so they know you’re Prime); that unlocks a menu for the free game(s) available.
I signed up cuz they were (may still be) offering free games (and game-related content) during the first several days of every month. Don’t have too much time for gaming these days, but I’ve selected 5 or 6 for free. Note: game usage is a bit like Steam - launched via Twitch app (which tracks what items ‘belong’ to you), so I don’t think you can play unless there’s an internet connection available.
@sammydog01 The website was hosed earlier, but they reset it and all is well. This Hope Box is a very good deal. I just finished buying many countertop 3 -tier spice shelves to display everything. If they’re in a cabinet, they get lost.
I love the way it smells. I went to the website and ordered up a case of it. I don’t know if it’s clearance or what but it’s $2.75 (regular $6.50) a bottle. Since I usually get my soap from Dollar Tree, I don’t know how to act.
Warm & welcoming with a blend of golden cognac, ground nutmeg, and fresh cream
@sammydog01@therealjrn add code TW5S2J for 25% off your entire order (at least online). To get my shipping’s worth I got some of this soap and a couple other ones at the same price, a manlyish gray and leather car air freshener for my new ride, and some wallflower refills to feed my wife’s addiction in scents that I think we’ll both like.
Google Express (similar to Amazon) is offering 25% Off (Max $100 Discount) when you apply promo code EXTRA25 during checkout. Shipping is free on orders of $35 or more.
I’ve ordered from Google a couple times to take advantage of their promotion discounts. But generally speaking, the prices there are higher than visiting participating merchant websites directly. A handful major retailers participate, including Target, Walmart, Fry’s Electronics, Walgreens, Kohl’s, Home Depot, Costco, etc.
Even @therealjrn’s new vice Bed Bath & Beyond (psssst! Use this discount to try some other products)
I’ve considered buying from them in the past, especially since I could get $10 off my first purchase, but I can save more money by buying discounted gift cards, and using them in their respective stores.
For what likely is a very limited time, Walmart is offering two Google Home Minis for $48 and free shipping or in-store pickup (choose in=store pickup for the best chance to avoid having your order cancelled).
Here’s how (works as of 10:30AM CT):
Visit the product page linky above: do not go to Walmart and choose the Home Mini Two-Pack
Scroll down the page just below the product description; find “Buy Together & Save” (see pic)
Select “Add All to Cart”
Enjoy the security and comfort of knowing Bif Brother is now hanging on your every word.
@mfladd I bought one last year. It can’t hook up to another speaker so that kind of killed it for me- I was hoping I could use it for all the free google play music I’ve been collecting. I gave it to my mom and she asks for Bach and bedtime stories so I’m glad I picked it up. But my answer is no, you don’t want one.
@mfladd After Christmas my local Walmart had a package with a Nest E thermostat and a Google Home Mini for $85. I hadn’t planned to get the thermostat, but I impulse bought the deal (and I love the thermostat, after I got around to installing it a couple of months later).
Anyway, I’ve got an Amazon Echo and some Dots and decided having the Google Home Mini would just confuse me, trying to remember who I was talking to, so I gave it to my brother.
I’ve played with my other brother’s Google Home when I’ve visited him, and I’ve used Google Assistant on my phone (and now in my car).
Google Assistant is better at answering questions (but not in the car), which isn’t surprising. Alexa is better at Smart Home integration.
I just don’t think I need both. I can pick up my phone if I need to ask Google something.
@mfladd The original deal is gone now, but if you’re just curious about comparing Google Home to Alexa, you can order one via Google Express. Walmart has them for $34.99, less the Google Express 25% off discount code = $26. Pad your order with a one penny item to break the minimum for free shipping.
@ruouttaurmind Thought about it, and I am going to pass. Between all the car repair, camping, and kayak shit I have purchased in the last month - Me Gotz No Moneys
One cool thing I did get was this canoe loader. The kids can’t help me load/unload the canoe on the top of the car and it is not light.
Haven’t tried it out with peashooter yet. Need to get the roof done.
@sammydog01 I’ve been on the fence about this too. I have the AMEX 20% off discount available which would bring my final price down to $104.
I personally have no use for them, but am considering one as a gift. I just don’t know if there’s $100 value in that device. The “show” bit really seems to have limited usefulness outside of watching Prime Video.
@sammydog01 I feel the same thing about my Fire TV Stick. When I first got it, I could do Vudu, MoviesAnywhere, UltraViolet, YouTube… even Google movies. Now I have to merge my Google, UV, Vudu and MoviesAnywhere libraries, and even still many titles in my library aren’t available on the Fire TV Stick.
@sammydog01 Maybe this will tip the scale for you. Echo Show Refurb for $110. I’m paying with AMEX, using at least $1 in points to save an additional 20% for a pre-tax price of $88. Full warranty, guaranteed to work and look like new. Only a $20 less than the brand new one, but why throw away an extra $20 when I don’t have to.
So… This is for my brother’s birthday. But last week I ordered that Spero R2 for my brother’s birthday. Apparently my Sphero minion army will be starting sooner than planned with R2-D2.
Amazon Prime Members: get $10 on Amazon for Prime Day when you make a single purchase of $10 or more in Whole Paycheck Foods between 7/11-7/17 and scan your Prime Code or use your linked mobile number at checkout.
@f00l after much digging through the Amazon app I determined that you have to get the whole foods app to get the code to scan. Or you can just use the phone number Amazon has associated with your Prime account.
Starting in July, McDonald’s is offering free french fries every Friday through the end of the year. All you have to do is make a purchase of at least $1, and you’ll be rolling in the crispy, salty starch sticks. (As long as you’re capable of rolling in the number of fries that come in a medium order.)
The nation’s second-best fast-food french fries can be attained by downloading the McDonald’s mobile app and registering for a free account. The app has been loaded with all kinds of deals – not dissimilar to the kind of deals you find on the Wendy’s app – that will help you make the most of your trip to the Golden Arches. Other deals include a free medium soda with a $1 purchase or free hash browns with the purchase of a breakfast sandwich.
Also while you are there (eg clicking on my link) log into your account and check your address and phone. Someone had gone in and changed both of those to something not mine, but oddly left my email address and password alone. I am thinking they were trying to order something using my account and credit card without me being alerted by a password change, have it sent to them instead of me, but the joke was on them since I don’t keep my credit card information online unless I am forced to. Reported it to Petco and changed my information back to me and then changed my password.
@communist@PlacidPenguin I own this (in white). Fantastic phone. Midrage features combined with flagship level performance. No complaints from me. Of course, now that Essential is shuttered, we’ll see if my story changes with the next couple OS updates. But still, for the price I paid, I’ll be satisfied if I can get a few years out of it.
So far, Prime Day is a spectacular flop. Trying to access the list of deals on their website results in a blank page, with only the Prime Day banner displaying. App isn’t working any better. WTG, Amazon! Puff up an event, then bellyflop when you hit the water.
@ruouttaurmind WTF. I cancelled the order saying I had to change payment type, and now amazon is all wonky and I can’t proceed to checkout. My cart totals keep changing. When I hit proceed to checkout it keeps sending back into saved for later
@mfladd Have they already charged your AMEX? If no, then they’ll cancel the transaction like it never occurred.
BTW, I never use all my AMEX points. I’ll always leave a few dollars worth in the account exactly for this sort of occasion. These Amz/AMEX offers are common, so I always want to be able to have the option if I choose.
Last offer I used was 30% off for AMEX points about three weeks ago. So be sure to leave a few bucks in there!
@ruouttaurmind Future reference: If you cancel something you bought with points it takes 4-6 days to get them back. Spoke to customer service when they didn’t show up right away. Still saved a ton of money with Amex deal activation.
@mfladd Sry about that. I guess you can still apply the points as an account credit at AmericanExpress.com and it will be the same net effect.
I’m selfishly hoarding my AMEX discount offer, looking for just the right thing(s) to use it on. Was considering Xbox One X, PS4 Pro, Ninty Switch, various tools, a plasma cutter… too bad Amz doesn’t sell HVAC systems.
putting a micro sd card into the copter would be pointless
But can’t you still initiate video recording directly from the controller? That’s how I did video recording for a couple years before I had my first FPV configuration. And still how I do much of my recording.
@sammydog01 It’s looking like Best Buy is all out of Sphero R2-D2, and only have R2-Q5 left in stock. I haven’t opened D2 yet, but I’m contemplating getting him a nemesis Q5 while they’re still in stock. I don’t think they’ll make it down to $30.
Audible promotional offer: Use book 2 credits, receive a $5 account credit. Use 3 book credits, receive a $10 account credit. Offer available until 7/18 and is available for current members only. (that’s TODAY only kiddies)
If you have any credits banked up, now’s the time to grab a few items from your wish list and cash in.
@f00l Me too. In case you missed the convoluted terms of the offer… within a few days they’re going to email a redemption code for a coupon. You have to execute the redemption code within 30 days of them sending the email. Then you will be issued a coupon code. You have to use the coupon code within 30 days of receiving it.
Kinda weaselly way to handle it. I mean, just issue a $10 credit to my account and be done. Even if the credit expires in 30 days… but whatevs.
Microsoft is offering a 12mos Xbox Live Gold subscription for $40 (normally $60). IIRC, you can stack up to 3 years of prepaid Xbox Live Gold subs, so if you’re feeling wealthy, grab three. I just tested, and MS let me get to the last step of the purchase process for additionals, so it looks like they’re not limiting you to one offer per customer.
@ruouttaurmind Hmmm…Gift price is still $59.99. (wanted to gift to my nephew) Seems they want to lock you into an auto-renewable subscription.
“By selecting Subscribe, you agree to the Store Terms of Sale. We’ll charge you $39.99 plus applicable taxes for the first year and $59.99 plus applicable taxes every year after that. You’ll be notified before any future price changes. Cancel any time”
It seems like it would let me subscribe as of today, but I doubt you could do any stacking… I only have like 2 months left on my pre-paid 12-month gold card.
@medz A week ago I registered a 3mos card I bought on eBay. When I purchased the one year today, it’s now showing a 14 mos expiration date. So it stacked at least that one year on top of my existing subscription.
I mentioned above, the MS store let me get to the final stage of purchasing another year, so I’m thinking you can probably stack at least one more year. I bailed out since I don’t want to commit to that much time.
EDIT: BTW, immediately after receiving the email confirmation of my 1 year purchase, I went to my subscription options and turned off auto-renew.
Misfit Swarovski fitness trackers are on sale for $9.99 and the coupon SUMMERON is good for an extra 30% off (that may be an error). I love these things if only for the rainbows they make on the roof of my car when it’s sunny. Sooooo sparkly. https://misfit.com/summer-sale-2018
Solar powered lanterns that really are bright, half price today. I have the Luci Outdoor and the Luci Lux Mobile Charging (USB charger and lantern in one). Limited to 20 per person. They also have a ‘BYOL-Build Your Own Luci Solar STEM Kit’, which looks awesome. Hurricane season is upon us, and I am tired of stockpiling batteries. The ones I have last at least 6 hours on ‘high’ which is very bright indeed.
Penney’s is giving away Quebec seasoning with a $5 purchase because Canadians are nice and cinnamon sugar with no purchase because they love children. I ordered online because it’s raining and spent $14 for the freebies and 3 little bottles of on sale barbecue seasoning. Plus they seem to toss in freebies and stickers when they ship. Gonna make some snickerdoodles!
@lisaviolet@ruouttaurmind this cool box of boxes is $10 (normally 39.99) at Michaels. With competition match coupon of $10 of $10 from Joann, cost me .64. If you have any % off sale items, it should work also.
