PS: note that “store pickup” sometimes means a product is available immediately for pickup, other times, it may mean that the item will get shipped to your chosen store, so it may take a week or two before you can pick it up ~ this may explain some of the store pickup date discrepancies you may observe…

PS: speaking of deals, retailers often (ab)use the “Christmas in July” theme but once in a while a “Christmas in July” sale-a-bration is “Christmas canon” (as Comic Con canon-obsessed fans like to say). Such is the case with this Monoprice sale which is full of Christmas lights and ornaments and stockings and stocking stuffers 🙂

You can find them by perusing the 70-odd offerings that are currently available in the Camera and Photo category

Or if you want to cast a wider net, there are over 600 offerings in the Electronics category, of which “Camera and Photo” is typically a subset. Typically because I can’t really test every single listing, so I can’t say with 100% certainty 🙂

And speaking of Prime Day deals, here’s a bundle of potential interest for Googloid fans, the 12.3″ Pixel Slate bundle consists of the Slate (12.3″, 2-in-1, Core m3, 8GB RAM, 64GB storage) bundled with the Pixel Slate keyboard, all together for $700 for Prime members…
