I am still literally too cheap to pay for Amazon prime. I find the $25 free shipping limit helps limit my impulse buying. Can still get in on warehouse deals! 
 
I do remember checking the lightning deals gold box back in the days, but now they have like 12 thousand items on sale at once.

Not seeing anything gaming related that's worth it.   They act like MK11 for $20 is a deal, when it's been the price on and off for the last 6 months.   Especially not worth it since the Ultimate Edition is coming out with all the DLC including the new Rambo, Rain and Mileena pack.

I got MK11 for $20 nearly a year ago from BB.  $10 would be a decent Prime Day price, not $20 - $25.

Is the 128 gb microSD and 12 month family membership worth it?
Just got a new switch and want me and the kiddo to be able to use the online as well as the extra storage.

You'll go through that storage quickly if you're buying digital copies of big games (Mario, Zelda etc). I'd recommend a larger card, unless you only plan to get a few games or are buying mostly indie titles.   Larger MicroSD cards are on sale frequently and there are some deals on the Nintendo Online service.  I've been on a 200 GB card for about 2 years and its pretty full, I have to archive or delete things I'm not playing.  I'd only get this for the convenience of not shopping around and just having it done with

Yeah it's shaping up to be a very lackuster Black Friday and Prime Day this year.  Stores don't want much additional seasonal foot traffic in 2020.  There weren't even many new releases this year.  So the sales aren't going to be very good or interesting.

I guess you’re right. I already got 5 games that might be considered big games and I’m only going to get more so it’ll probably be best for me to take your advice on the larger SD card.

Thanks for the reply.

No probs. It's annoying to buy storage only to have to upgrade it a little later.  In case you want to crunch some numbers yourself, if you go to the Nintendo page for any game in the eshop and scroll down you can see how much space it will take up to figure this out exactly for your needs.  So for example:

 

https://www.nintendo...he-wild-switch/

 

And if you scroll down some you can see BOTW is about about 15 GB and so on

I think it's a nice deal if you look at it as paying normal price for NSO and then getting a 128gb card for $5. But the card itself is worse (slower) than its non-Nintendo-branded counterpart (https://www.amazon.c...uct/B07FCMKK5X/).

I had no clue about this. One would think that if it has the Nintendo seal of approval on it (Nintendo Logo on SD card), it would be the best option available. Clearly that’s not the case here lol. I checked out the link you posted and will most likely end up going with that one if I can get the 12 month NSO family membership at a good price.

Thanks for pointing that out to me.

They are price matching Target, for those with red card.

The Office complete series actually WAS really $9.99 when they posted it.  I saw it.  It must have been a pricing error that they've fixed since.  I guess I should have jumped on it.  Oops.

Found a cheap bluetooth keyboard/trackpad combo that I’m kinda iffy on, and there’s a pretty nice deal on an Aukey powerbank I’ve been wanting so I grabbed that, too.

I miss when prime day sales and black friday sales were good. I still remember when they clearanced out the psp library of stuff they had. Got so many psp titles for 10 bucks or less.


Prime Day sales have never been good outside of very fine niches. Like PSP clearance, I guess.

They used to have great deals but yeah likely niche. Like I've gotten a few box sets of tv shows through them for 10 to 20 bucks and 5 to 8 for individual seasons. And back when the vita was a thing while this wasn't prime day deal but closer to black Friday they had the 16gb memory card for 19.99 or something. And PS3 controllers for cheap too along with RPGs like ff13-3 ninokuni atelier Ayesha and valkyria chronicles.

Prices do seem garbage tier. Hate to condemn though. Surely somebody is finding something they want. Maybe a keyboard, mouse, or headphones. Sure as hell are enough to choose from.

Do the gaming cards get 25 percent total, or is it 25 plus my normal 5 percent back?

Didn't get much.

 

Amazon matched Target's $14.99 price on :ps4: Journey to the Savage Planet, plus I had a $5 promo to use.

 

Also picked up an 80 card Switch game case. I've been eyeing this for a while and was happy to see it get a lightning deal for 20% off ($16.99 -> $13.59): https://www.amazon.c...uct/B07QST39HW/

Most cartridge cases lock the games in with plastic so you have to pry them out every time. I prefer this elastic band type.

$10 promotional credit when you buy $40 in gift cards (or reload $40 to your account).  May be targeted?

Nope. It's for everyone I think.

 

BTW, Pound HMDI cables are on sale. Too bad the Xbox version is out of stock

Nice to score some PC stuff at pre-covid prices, but these deals don't illicit the same feelings of accomplishment that knocking over a kid in the way of your deal used to
