Elsewhere at the Best Buy deals du jour they have, no, not the soup du jour, but the 256GB Sandisk Ultra Plus microSDXC for $45…

On the utilitarian front, the Meh daily deal is 200 single-use 3-ply masks for $35. Their joke about “600 plies” can be a bit confusing because most people skim-read and they may think they are getting 600 masks. Then there’s the picture text of “$60 at mask”. Again, as regular readers can attest, I’m all in for all kinds of jokes, BUT you have to make sure the jokes don’t create confusion on what you are buying, the quantity and the price. These are off-limits for shopping-jokes 🙂

Lenovo laptops (around 800 euro) are the headliners of the Amazon Germany Tuesday deals du jour… Note that German computer keyboards are QWERTZ not QWERTY… I do not know whz thez like them that waz 🙂

And at Amazon USA the headliner is a Razer Blade 15 gaming laptop going for $1400…`
