I'm debating whether to buy this messenger bag thingie at $20.33 (there's a 49% off lightning deal going on).

https://www.amazon.c...B01N22YAIP?th=1

 

Should I get it or hold out for a better case that may or may not go on sale? I feel more positively about the bulky cases with the clearly defined slots for everything, plus room for an additional pro-controller, grip straps, etc.

i bought the zelda one https://www.amazon.c...PDKIKX0DER&th=1

I looked at it, but decided against it once I saw the giant Switch logo on the front. I'd rather not advertise that I'm taking my Switch to work. ;)

So Prime day this year has been about the worst so far uh? I just officially got Prime last year, and I think I did one month the year before for Prime day, and those last 2 years where pretty useless.

 

I honestly have Prime for the video, which my son uses about 50% of his time, and for quick delivery on supplies for me. I guess at one point, Prime day may have been a benefit, but like with most things Amazon over the years, quality seems way down in general. If anything, Prime day should be the one day each year they do their best to make deals look inviting to the masses, so the sign up, or keep Prime if they sign up for 1 month.

 

I guess now, it's a part of the institution, but nothing they really seem like they really want to offer anymore, which seems to defeat the purpose.

The 200 gb micro sd card for 45 seems like a steal   I have never seen one of that size for that price.

Final Fantasy Dissidia NT (PS4) is $20 (lightning deal).

Newegg’s had it cheaper, but the lightning deal includes the Steelbook Brawler Edition.

For sure. I remember it being $50 on Black Friday. This is the lowest I have seen.

I only have prime for the two day shipping, i ise no other amazon “service” and when my prime expires in may.. its not getting renewed.
This prime day has been a joke, only purchased the life straw for $10. Nothing of interest yet, nothing ive seen in upcoming that i want to watch even.

Prime Day is a joke every year they have done it, glitches aside. I don't think I have ever ordered more than a couple of items during Prime Day. I do use the 2-day shipping often enough to make Prime worth it. If they drop the 20% off pre-orders I may rethink the value now that it's $20 more a year. My GCU is up in November and Prime I have until February.

Bought a copy of the D&D DM's Guide for $25 after tax between the price discount, some "click to use" $1.85 coupon and the $5 book code.  So I guess I saved 50% off MSRP.

 

Yay.

Yeah can’t remember the last time anyone went bananas over Prime Day (excluding the glitches) so I can’t really say I’m surprised with the lack of deals. Seems like Amazon has been getting worse these past couple of years hell even the Warehouse Deals are a joke anymore. I like many others will definitely have to reconsider if I renew prime or not (especially since I have GCU until 2020)

There are “good deals” out there in the sale.. just not exactly in gaming.
Some outdoors stuff on sale that are cheaper than ive seen.
My parents bought another ring spotlight cam, $140 which is a Hell of a lot cheaper than any sale ive seen before.

Deals to be had, but not much as the first prime day.

Anyone know if this would be a good memory card for the Switch?

 

Anyway, I finally bought a game on Prime Day.  I saw Gundam Versus (PS4) was only $14.99 and after a $5 gift card I had it came to just over $10 after tax.  Not bad for something I was considering picking up at $20.

So the life is strange regular edition sale was seemingly only for PS4, I got an error when ordering the Xbox version but it apparently went through and is shipping, strangest amazon experience in a while.

Has anyone ever bought a processor from Antonline with eBay and ended up not having the serial numbers match with the box? Mine didn't match when I had to contact Intel for repairs

I think the thing is that it caters to the Black Friday shoppers that sit there watching the deals and are like, "Oh!  This thing I never even wanted is 1% off!  I have to buy it before the deal's sold out!"  And people do do that.  And then Amazon considers it a success.  Most of the deals don't really seem to be aimed at those of us that look for deals everyday and tend to not buy things at MSRP (other than maybe the deals on Amazon devices that are really just them extending their proprietary reach).

There are some deals out there, but I think it's more niche. It isn't as much deals on things like TVs at their lowest price ever that lots of people would be interest in, though that doesn't happen on occasion; rather, you can get a good deal on a kitchen appliance, a new tent, etc.

 

I got $40 off a fancy rice cooker, the lowest price it's ever been according to camelx3. Last year I got a TV that didn't return to that price until Black Friday (where it was the same price as the Prime deal). The year prior, I got a PS4 bundle at a good price.

 

It's definitely overrated, but there's some stuff to be had.

^ this exactly.

The 10-20% “deals” are really not deals. Which id say most if the prime day stuff are, but there are huge discounts out there with great deals on other stuff. Just depends on what you are looking for, some good outdoor gear deals and tools etc.

- Playstation 4 Pro black with fortnite $285
- God of War Ps4 $29.99

Considering it was first prime day and that we don't pay taxes, it was good.

But looking at US prime day, the deals are Meh.

The XBO S 1TB console bundles was on sale for $230 during E3 and I think once before that this year, so that sale price isn't really anything special. Rare Replay is a great compilation, but you can easily get it used from Gamestop for about $10.

 

If you don't mind passing up on RR and the free month of online XBox services, you can get a 1TB XBO S console from rushhourwholesaler off eBay for $185 after that $25 off coupon.

Another boring Prime Day. Only picked up a Sandisk 128GB micro sd U1 for $26 for my Target Day Nintendo Switch.

50% off PS+ would have been sweet.
