Update on Amazon Lightning Deals Coverage

It looks like this is the new way Amazon is doing teasers of lightning deals. Previously they gave us a 20+ hour heads-up in the Gold Box. Now the maximum future visibility we all have is four hours. More specifically four hours from the top of the hour, so it’s somewhere between 3-4 hours depending on when you check.

This means I can no longer do the nightly schedule posts because I can only “see” 3-4 hours ahead instead of 20+ hours.

Instead, I started using a brand new Gold Box tag (Bookmark This if you like; there’s also a link to it in the Blog Sidebar). I am using this blog tag to mark all the posts that talk about Amazon Lightning Deals, so you when you string them all together, you see the latest lightning deal posts.
