First, let me start with my annual "can we stop using that term" request. We no longer live in an era where people are without internet all weekend, and only get connectivity when they come into work. Also, nothing should be called "Cyber" anything, and that's been the case since Mark Silvestri's terrible Cyberforce
came out nearly 25 years ago.
Anyway, as to deals:
First, leftover deals from previous days worth highlighting:
The most important previous deal that's still active is the $10 off $25 Book Coupon with the code HOLIDAYBOOK
(full details at the link). This one expires on Tuesday, and pretty much covers all physical (non-Kindle) books in the store.
Other previous deals still active: Amazon Echo
for $139.99, Echo Dot
for $39.99, digital editions of Marvel Masterworks
for $2.99 each, $5 magazine subscriptions
, and Entertainment Weekly
for $10, Superman v Batman: Dawn of Justice
for $8.99, Home
for $3.99. Oh, and all the kitchen, DVD, board game, and book deals from yesterday
(including 7 Wonders!) are still active!.
New deals just for today include:400+ Kindle Books for $3.99 or less
! The best choice here is M.R. Carey's The Girl with All the Gifts
, but you can find authors like Emma Donahue, Nicholas Sparks, Karin Slaughter, Neal Stephenson, George R.R. Martin, Robert Galbraith (aka JK Rowling), Joe Hill, Pat Conroy, and a lot more! Some of those books are as low as $1.99, too.
Amazon's also got Kindle Unlimited
for 25-40% off their usual price (depending on the length of service). Note that this now includes audiobooks and magazines, which makes it a hell of a nice deal.
The Dash Buttons
-- Amazon's one-click buttons for reordering household items -- are on sale for $.99 today with the coupon code "CYBERDASH," and you get a $5 Amazon credit the first time they use them. Note that there is now a Cheez-It Dash Button, which is the greatest idea ever, as I run out of Cheez-Its way more often than I run out of Tide.
Another daily deal is on the Jurassic Park Collection
(with all four movies) on Blu-Ray with digital copies as well for $19.99. That's either $5 per movie, or $10 per movie for the ones you'll watch more than once.
While yesterday's PS4 deal is dead, the Battlefield 1 Special Edition Bundle Xbox One
is $254.99 (a solid $70 off other prices), while the 2TB Gears of War Edition
is $399 ($45 off other deals).
In daily Kitchen Deals, if you want something more powerful than the lower-end mixer in yesterday's post, the KitchenAid KL26M1XER Professional 6-Qt. Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer
is $219.95 (60% off). And it's a gorgeous item to have in your kitchen.
And the five-quart version of the Instant Pot
, which some folks (like zarhooie
) have been raving about, is on sale for $49 (46% off). It's a combo pressure cooker/slower cooker, etc that's supposed to be amazing. The 6-Quart version
is also on sale for $68.95 (43% off).
In fitness, there are huge sales on both Garmin
activity trackers, with the Fitbit Flex 2
for $59 being the most tempting of them for me.
In gorgeous coffee-table books (and remember to use that coupon!), Dalí: Les Dîners de Gala
, which looks awesome, is $35.99 (40% off), and Atlas Obscura
is $17.50 (50% off).
In cheaper books, the paperback of The Book Thief
is $3.89 (70% off, the price paperbacks were when I was first buying them).
More good movie/TV deals: Season 1 of iZombie
on Blu-Ray for $11.21 (72% off), Glengarry Glen Ross
on Blu-Ray/Digital for $4.99 (53% off), The Big Lebowski

is similarly cheap, $15.99 (20% off, but $6 below other sellers). And the Radio Flyer Deluxe Steer and Stroll Trike

There's also a huge Hasbro sale
, with discounts on Trivial Pursuit
, My Little Pony
, Disney Princess

And if you spend $100 on Amazon toys anytime (in one purchase) before December 31, you can get the Gund 2016 Plush
And finally, in video games, Red Dead Redemption GOTY Edition
for the PS3 is $10 (67% off), and still a great game.
