I'm moving into an apartment at the beginning of August, hoping there's some pretty good deals on budget 4k TVs.
Sometimes they accidentally give away the bullshit Alexa things sitting in your warehouse.
So sometimes they sell things for way too super cheap and it’s a race to buy before they fix it?Sometimes they accidentally give away the bullshit Alexa things sitting in your warehouse.
It's like "OMG click Amazon right now there's that toothbrush with the bluetooth speaker for $3.99. I just ordered 17! I hope they don't cancel my order." Of course they ship them until they've cleared the warehouse.
Last year, Target had an online checkout glitch which allowed you to stack two 30% off coupons and could be applied to any item. This resulted in people getting items like a Switch for 60% off. Someone here ordered an entire patio furniture set valued at $1500 or something and only paid $600.
Ah so this was a separate thing from Prime Day glitching through Amazon?Last year, Target had an online checkout glitch which allowed you to stack two 30% off coupons and could be applied to any item. This results in people getting items like a Switch for 60% off or really anything. Someone here ordered an entire patio furniture set valued at $1500 or something and only paid $600.
I don't fully recall all the details but i'm pretty sure the Target deal was in response to Prime Day starting/ending(?). I just remember it being discovered late one night and people had to rush to get orders in before it was fixed in the morning.
eBay announces "Crash Sale" to run on Prime Day.
Meanwhile, eBay made a more pointed reference to Amazon in its announcement. The company said it will launch a "Crash Sale" on July 15 that will include "hot deals on top brands" over 50% off, with free shipping and no membership required.
"If history repeats itself and Amazon crashes that day," eBay said, the company will include more deals. That's a nod to the fact that Amazon's website had periodic outages last year on Prime Day.
That's a win for customers. Hopefully it's just not all the same stuff at the same price. Well, whoever "accidentally" makes a price error will get my money :p
Sometimes the discounts get applied twice. Last year (or was it the year before?) there was a $500 or so graphics card that was supposed to get a $75 discount I think, but on checkout you'd get 2 x $75 off. Lasted for maybe an hour ish.
The 4K Fire TVs I own have issues all the time, especially with booting between 4K and 1080p with Netflix. I hope for your sake the 4K Fire TV Sticks handle that better and can have a native 4K dashboard.
I have one and haven’t had any real issues with my LG OLED. It doesn’t switch resolutions with different apps either.
I generally prefer Roku, but no Twitch kind of sucks, and the old app that you can use isn’t maintained and doesn’t play full quality.
