I feel a little funny writing about this Amazon Gold Box Deal, because as many of you probably know, Gilmore Girls is now available for streaming on Netflix. (In fact, it’s what I plan on watching when I’m on maternity “leave.” (And by “leave” I don’t actually have a clue what I’m going to do.)) However, if you don’t have Netflix or just want to own the entire series, this is a great opportunity because Gilmore Girls (The Complete Series) is on sale for $52.99 at Amazon today!
This is a 42-disc DVD set that includes all 7 seasons of the show, as well as a bunch of bonus material from every season.
This is one of Amazon’s Gold Box Deals of the Day so the set is only available at this price through the end of the day today, December 19, 2014.
Amazon has been barreling through with their Black Friday deals for a week, and that continues today! They’ve got lightening deals going constantly, but with one of their deals of the day today you can save up to 65% on select headphones!
This promotion includes the Bose AE2 Around-Ear Audio Headphones, which normally cost $149.95, but are on sale today for $79.99!
Note: This sale will end once all products have sold out.
Amazon has just announced a new product that could make an awesome gift for someone on your shopping list this holiday season! Even if you’re not yet in the holiday shopping mood, you might want to reconsider if you’re an Amazon Prime member!
For the next two days only – ending tomorrow night, October 28 – Amazon Prime members will be able to pre-order the Amazon Fire TV Stick for just $19! The normal retail price of this product will be $39, so this is a heck of a discount! The Fire TV Stick will ship out on November 19.
The Amazon Fire TV Stick is a smaller version of the Amazon Fire TV (which you all know I LOVE). The Fire TV Stick works more like a Chromecast in that you hook plug the small stick directly into your television and then use the remote to find the shows you want to watch. The Fire TV isn’t much different, except that the box is larger and contains more memory. Here’s a handy dandy comparison:
You WILL be able to use the Fire TV Stick to stream your favorite shows from sites like Hulu and Netflix, and Amazon Prime members will have access to Prime Instant Video, which includes the HBO Collection. My husband and I primarily use our Kindle Fire TV for Amazon Instant Video at this point.
For just $19, this really is an amazing deal especially if you were looking for a new tech gift for someone on your shopping list… or just a cheaper way to stream channels to your TV!
I’ve talked before about Amazon’s Trade-In Program but just got word that they are already accepting trade-in requests for old iPhones from those who plan on picking up the soon-to-be-released iPhone 6!
Here are the details:
Take advantage of the 45-day lock-in period (starting 9/9-10/10) to lock in values on hot phones – Apple iPhone5s 64 GB AT&T- $400* or Apple iPhone 5 64 GB Verizon- $363.55* – while you wait to buy their new device!
(Note: *Trade-in values are subject to change based on market rate.)
Those who choose to trade-in their electronics through Amazon will be paid with an Amazon gift card. It’s probably not as optimal as cold hard cash, but usually gift card payments tend to be higher than cash payments. By comparison, Gazelle is offering $310 for an unlocked Apple iPhone5s 64 GB AT&T or $270 for a locked phone. Of course, that’s straight cash.
Regardless of whether you go with Amazon, Gazelle, or someone else entirely, it may be worth your while to do your research and lock down the trade-in price now. The more phones get traded in, the lower the trade-in value is going to be!
Hello there! After a little over a week spent exploring Costa Rica, my husband and I finally returned to Chicago late last night after a lengthy layover + delay in Detroit and then the news that my luggage somehow didn’t make it back to Chicago. (Honestly, I care little about the contents inside of the suitcase but I’m a little freaked out about the possibility – slight though it may be – that I could never see my beloved Samsonite Winfield Suitcase again.) I’m not jet-lagged, but I did wake up super early this morning reveling in the fact that it’s now June. Where is this year going?!
On the plus size, a new month means that there’s a new selection of Kindle First books available! Kindle First is a new perk for Amazon Prime members, where you can pick up one FREE pre-release Kindle book. Each month there is a new selection of four books from which to choose. If you are not an Amazon Prime member, the June books will be available for purchase on July 1.
Synopsis: When the tap water at the Hale Boarding School for Boys bursts into flames, people blame fracking. Life at Hale has always been fraught—the swim test consists of being thrown into the pool with wrists and ankles tied, and a boy can be expelled if he and a girl keep fewer than “three feet on the floor.” But the sight of combustible drinking water and the possibility that fracking is making Hale kids sick turn one student into an unlikely hero in the fight to stop the controversial drilling practice.
Winston Crwth, a Scrabble prodigy whose baffling last name rhymes with “truth,” knows what it’s like to be “fractured,” having grown up with his father in Philadelphia and his mother in California. On Winston’s comic journey to the Pennsylvania State Scrabble Championship, where he hopes to win an audience with beauty-queen-turned-governor Linda King LaRue, he matches wits with Thomasina Wodtke-Weir, the headmaster’s prematurely gray daughter and the most popular (read: only) girl at school; the state poet laureate, whose verse consists of copying out dictionary entries and restroom graffiti; and David Dark, son of the CEO of Dark Oil & Gas, the source of Winston’s scholarship money.
The Fracking King is a fantastically inventive debut about rowing crew, using all your tiles, and trying to save the world.
Synopsis: After taking a bullet for his commander-in-chief, Secret Service agent Joseph Reeder is a hero. But his outspoken criticism of the president he saved—who had stacked the Supreme Court with hard-right justices to overturn Roe v. Wade, amp up the Patriot Act, and shred the First Amendment—put Reeder at odds with the Service’s apolitical nature, making him an outcast.
FBI agent Patti Rogers finds herself paired with the unpopular former agent on a task force investigating the killing of Supreme Court Justice Henry Venter. Reeder—nicknamed “Peep” for his unparalleled skills at reading body language—makes a startling discovery while reviewing a security tape: the shooting was premeditated, not a botched robbery. Even more chilling, the controversial Venter may not be the only justice targeted for death…
Is a mastermind mounting an unprecedented judicial coup aimed at replacing ultra-conservative justices with a new liberal majority? To crack the conspiracy and save the lives of not just the justices but also Reeder’s own family, rising star Rogers and legendary investigator Reeder must push their skills—and themselves—to the limit.
Synopsis: Reeling from a bitter divorce, Adrienne Carter abandons Chicago and retreats to the sun, sand, and beauty of Southern Florida, throwing herself into the restoration of a dilapidated old Victorian beach house. Early into the renovations, she discovers a tin box hidden away in the attic that reveals the emotional letters from a WWII paratrooper to a young woman who lived in the house more than a half-century earlier.
The old letters—incredibly poetic and romantic—transcend time, and they arouse in Adrienne a curiosity that leads her to track down the writer of the letters. William “Pops” Bryant is now an old man living in a nearby town with his handsome but overprotective grandson, Will. As Adrienne begins to unravel the secrets of the letters (and the Bryants), she finds herself not yet willing to give up entirely on love.
Synopsis: Oliver Twist is one of the most well-known stories ever told, about a young orphan who has to survive the mean streets of London before ultimately being rescued by a kindly benefactor.
But it is his friend, the Artful Dodger, who has the far more intriguing tale, filled with more adventure and excitement than anything boring Oliver could possibly get up to. Throw in some vampires and a plot to overthrow the British monarchy, and what you have is the thrilling account that Charles Dickens was too scared to share with the world.
