So, how do you guys do this?  I already have a membership, just wondering what the best way to watch for deals on specific items is. 

Or how do you get recs from Amazon based on past purchases?

What's the best way to watch random deals you haven't thought about but might want?

My main targets are I need a new Harmony remote, and a wireless or NAS storage drive.  Also debating a smart thermostat, but that seems like I'm just looking for ways to waste money.  Might grab a coffee grinder if a good one goes on sale - that would be worth it if I start experimenting with different beans I can get online.

My wife works in corporate retail. Be prepared for Prime Day to basically kick off Black Friday sells as well. The deals are going to start earlier then ever before bc of Covid.

I just make a list for it. If they go on sale I buy the items that day. I don’t search for unexpected deals or anything. If I don’t need it/wasn’t on my list I don’t buy it

I'll probably get a Kindle Fire. I prefer my Paperwhite, but I need a Fire for Hoopla and other library apps.

Anyone finding any decent deals? There's so much absolute shit to wade through it's not even worth taking the time to scroll.

Got my Kindle Fire, a sweatshirt for my dog, and two books. All things I had already saved in my cart for later.

I know a decent amount on here have Air Fryers. 3 questions...1. How often do you use it. 2. What type of meals do you make. 3. How much would you spend? Finding some decent ones for about $100-$130 and thinking of pulling the trigger.

Also, I finally installed the Honey add-in to Firefox.  Nice to be able to see the price history for up to 120 days.  There's definitely some decent savings to be had if you watch & wait and avoid impulse buys.

I love mine and use it several times a week. I like to make spicy chicken fillets for lunch, and I roast potatoes a lot. I really don't do anything fancy with it, but it's perfect when we want to do appetizers and it's also great for reheating leftovers. 

My stepdad makes wings in his frequently and is a big fan.

Thanks! Gonna wait another day and see if a deal is out there for even cheaper tomorrow. But some of the recipes I’ve looked at I’d pay $500 for lol.

They have AirPods for $115, which is pretty cheap. But I haven’t found anything I need to spend money on.

I spent $169 for the Ninja Foodie Grill for my daughter and $139 on the Ninja Pressure Cooker/Air Fryer

Many people i know use them almost every day. I’ve heard nothing but great things from the Ninja Foodie Grill
