Sunday: Morphie, Tamrac, H&R, CameraMuzzle, NatGeo Telescope, Etc

Charge me up! That’s the theme of the day at the Sunday 1/31/21 [yup, just like that we ate up the first month of 2021] Meh daily deal. It’s a bundle of charging-related gear for $19 plus S&H (free S&H for Meh-meh-members). You get:

  • two Morphie 8000 mAh powerbanks with one USB-A and one 3A USB-C output ports (today’s phone flagships are too hungry for this, but can be great for smaller/older phones and other not-very-hungry electronics (Kindle e-readers, headphones, etc)
  • four 1-slot USB-A car charges
  • one 3-port 21W AC Wall charger

Then we head on to the B&H daily deals where we find a 7-pack of offerings good until 11:59pm ET on Sunday {or earlier if sold out}:

+ Camera Muzzle Sound Blip for $80
+ because there’s always someone in the room that is finely tuned to the camera-sounds and likes to complain about it early and often 😉

+ Ruggard Lux Strap with 3/8″ Connector for $7

+ Tamrac Stratus 10 Shoulder Bag (Black) for $60
+ a Dodge Stratus is NOT included in the bag 😉

+ National Geographic 50mm f/12 AZ Refractor Telescope for $40

+ H&R Block 2020 Deluxe + State Tax Software (Digital) for $22.50 in either Windows or Mac
+ all apologies for reminding you of taxes so early in the tax year BUT if you are expecting a nice refund…

+ Conair Travel Smart TS35Q Ladderkart for $60

+ 10pk Blizzard disposable KN95 masks for $20
+ I wonder what will happen to the billions of masks currently residing in homes and offices and warehouses if/when/after COVID is gone
+ I know, start working on your viral videos and listicles, “10 Ways to Repurpose Masks”, “5 Surprising Uses of Single-Use Masks”, “Out of Coffee Filters, You Got Masks!”

UPDATE #1: it’s a mix of things at the Woot daily deals for Sunday headlined by Samsung TVs (yes, SuperBowl season is fully upon us, $180 to $5600), $30 Kindle Paperwhite e-readers (but the 2013 model, aka 2nd generation – current model is 4th generation, see Wacopedia), and consumer lighting (table and floor lamps, $25 to $55), and some A/V action too with Logitech Harmony Ultimate One for $55 and a Vizio sound bar for $100…

Saturday: Sunpak, Intel i9/i7, Sandisk, WD, Apples, Etc

The current iteration of Adorama daily deals is good until Sunday at 10am ET (or earlier if sold out) and it is headlined by the Sunpak VideoPro-M 4 Tripod with True Fluid Pan Head and Case going for $55 with free US shipping…

Meanwhile at the Saturday 1/30/21 Woot daily deals they have yet another iteration of the Apple sale (iMacs, MacBooks, iPads) and the LG V30 for $200 among others…

Off we go to the Best Buy dailies where the headliners are Intel i9 and i7 processors. They also have the 12TB WD external USB 3.0 HDD for $200…

You can’t buy scrambled eggs there despite the name, but the Saturday NewEgg daily deals include a 2TB Sandisk SSD and Nintendo microSDXC, Intel i7, 8TB Seagate internal, WD Red, Acer Aspire 5, etc…

PS: is it me or is it easier to write the correct year this COVID year #2? I rarely catch myself writing x/x/20…
