Best Buy: Atari Flashback 8 Console for $34.99 and free shipping if you pad your cart with $0.01 or more of additional merchandise (Pro-Tip: check out the clearance and outlet center to find hundreds of items for A couple bucks or less). In-store pickup is not available for this item.
@mick@ruouttaurmind if you’re in the market for this and have a Sam’s membership, check there. They had like three different versions of this (Atari, Capcom, and Sega maybe?) in for Christmas and the other day when I was there they had the Capcom one for $9.
I had it in my hand but then thought about what I was doing. I built a retropi setup that already had all those games and more, so I put it back for someone else.
@RiotDemon In the store near me they’re usually stocked along with the game disks and computer software. But last year when they were clearancing out the Guitar Hero bundles they were stacked up with all the discounted returned goods stuff.
This may be old news to many of you, but I just saw it this morning for the first time. I have no idea how long this has been going on, or how much longer the promo will run…
Chewy.com: Set up your first Autoship order and save 30% (up to $20) in addition to the 5% standard auto-ship savings. Important note here though, Chewy charges shipping for orders less than $50.
FWIW, I also had a Chewy “$15 off $50” coupon and was able to stack the offers for a total discount of $39.30 on my $86 order of dog food with free shipping. These are probably one-shot codes, but you can try this if you’re feeling adventurous: HVXKDT5X
@RiotDemon I’ve never been able to benefit from them before. Between shipping and sales tax, everything is more costly there than just picking up at Walmart or ordering from Amz. But this time I ordered two bags of chow for the free shipping and it’s really paid off. Two $43 bags of food for about $50. Not bad.
@ruouttaurmind I try to avoid the giant that is Amazon and Walmart doesn’t carry my dog’s food. I got tired of buying locally when PetSmart stopped carrying the specific type of my dog’s food. PetCo was cheaper online and they would honor the price, but it was a pain in the ass. I started doing their online ordering and it was fine for the first order, then suddenly they said they couldn’t ship canned food. If I tried to place a regular order, and not auto ship, they would ship the canned food. When I spoke to customer support they said cans got damaged in shipping, but they couldn’t explain why they could ship a regular order with cans.
This title is currently in the free Prime Reading library, so Prime subscribers can simply download the book. Non-Prime subscribers must pay 99¢. In either case, you may add the Audible audiobook version by selecting “Add Audible book to your purchase for just $1.99”.
The Audible version is not one of the PD amateur narrator versions. This is 18 hours of excellent professional narration by Luke Daniels and Therese Plummer, two of the best Audible has to offer.
@sammydog01 their site is odd. Once you add 3, it seems like the deal also works for 4, 5, or 6 units. But it stops at 7 and didn’t work for 9. This is a good deal compared to their MSRP and shipping prices, it’s like getting a discount on one and getting two more to give as gifts.
The crock reaches temperatures of 165-175°F according to their customer service reps. I’m sure that could cook ramen but not sure how long it would take to do it. They even suggest oatmeal in their site copy and then say it won’t cook oatmeal in the q&a, which was weird.
Colors have been selling out while I played with the site. From reading their q&a section, they run this sale once every few months so it will come back around.

Unfortunately CCC is brain damaged after the rebuild, so limited pricing history is available. Only 11 reviews lead me to suspect it’s a new product. Fakespot doesn’t have much confidence in the few reviews which are there, but Reviewmeta thinks it’s fine. Caveat emptor.
I just received the “compatible” baseplates I ordered from Wednesday’s Amz DotD. Eight 10”x10” plates in 4 colors for $22.46 (now back to $30).
My initial impression? Good value. Less than half the price of LEGO baseplates. The fit and finish is great. I tried about a dozen different LEGO bricks in various shapes and sizes, all fit perfectly. Firm, snug fit. The only thing that isn’t quite perfect is the color match. Green and blue are nearly perfect. Gray and sand are a bit off. They are also a bit thicker than LEGO baseplates, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing, since I don’t see myself trying to match the two brand baseplates in one project.
