Alexa Birthday = Amazon Hardware sales

To sale-a-brate Alexa’s birthday, Amazon is not throwing a proper party, but instead, they are running a sale on select Amazon hardware until 11/7/22. Offers may change/rotate daily or not – I’m not sure.

From this I learned that Amazon has a Fire HD 10 Productivity bundle for $145 that includes the tablet, a custom bluetooth keyboard that attaches to the device, and a 12-month Microsoft 365 Personal subscription (up to five devices). With Lockscreen Ads [because… Amazon]. So if you were already planning to get a M365 subscription…

A similar offer is available for +$30 on the Fire HD 10 Plus.

Tue: Lensbaby Trio 28 Lens with Filter Kit for $180 [X/E/m43/Z/EF-M], Feelworld, Sandisk, Benro, Cinetics, GVM 3-Light Kit, Etc

Lenze Dayze continue at the B&H Photo daily deals, that is if you consider Lensbabies to be lenses. A 50-page forum thread debating this follows 😉 Offers good until 11/1/22 at 11:59pm ET or earlier if sold out!

But first, a quick note. A new month is here, November 2022 is upon us all, even though it feels like yesterday we were singing Happy New Year 😉 YES, Black Friday Month is here! Expect your emails to be filled with “Early Black Friday” offers. After all, Black Friday is a state of mind, it’s a lifestyle, it’s not just a calendar period 🙂
