Amazon Echo drops to $100

The new condition Amazon Echo is now down to $100 with free shipping in either black or white at Amazon by Amazon itself. This is not a lightning deal. You can buy as many as you want.

Of deals interest, Alexa-enabled devices open the door for the Alexa Voice Ordering deals. In addition to the products shown there, they occasionally have general discount offers (eg $XX off a purchase made with Alexa) or gift card promotions and such. Amazon is making a big push for Alexa, and Amazon’s tried and true method of getting more and more people to use something is to keep offering discounts and special promotions.

New Free Shipping Offer at Groupon: Make $50+ purchase, unlock Free Shipping for the next 14 Days (without minimum purchase requirement)

There is a new development in the world of Free Shipping at Groupon Goods. In addition to their existing on-going offer to get free shipping with a $34.99+ order, they are introducing a new limited time free shipping promotion as follows:

IF you make a purchase of $49.99+ in a single transaction, for the next 14 calendar days, you will get FREE shipping on all your purchases, without the need for a minimum purchase amount. Items have to be sold and shipped by Groupon itself, not 3rd-party sellers.

Think of it a 14-day Prime-like membership, except you get the slowest Super-Saver No-Rush shipping, instead of 2-day shipping 🙂

The fineprint of the offer, cut and paste from their website:

“For a limited time, when you spend $49.99 or more on eligible Goods deals in one purchase, you’ll get free standard shipping ($3.99) on that order and on all eligible orders for the next 14 days with no minimum purchase requirement. No limits on number of uses. Eligible orders are for deals sold by Groupon Goods, Inc. that are not large, oversized, or delivered by a special or white glove carrier. Orders from third party sellers that sell on the Groupon Marketplace do not qualify. U.S. only.”

It is nice to see retailers try new things. Shipping is definitely one thing that is holding back some people from making Groupon purchases, so this offer may …unlock temporary impulse buys 🙂
