Amazon’s Saturday Gold Box has a Valentine’s themed Vahdam teas sale, and Amazon gift cards with select Turbo Tax software and some Sony OLED TVs and Fire HD tablets (they’ve come a long way since the original 7-inch Kindle Fire tablet which if I recall correctly I bought when it came out), the outdoorsy Samsung Terrace QLEDs (you pay for the outdoorsy display, $8.5K to $10K), and things like that…
