Saturday: Bag the …Batteries Bags for $15 + S&H

We have a very special Bag the Bags for you for Saturday 9/9/23, mayhaps the first time ever mentioned on this blog, it’s battery bags! That’s right. The Saturday Meh daily deal are bags that hold AA and AAA and B and C and CR2023 batteries! There are two sizes in the bundle and you get BOTH for $15 plus shipping (free for paying Meh-Meh-Meh-members). The bundle also includes two battery testers and two mini screwdrivers!

The battery testers can be quite handy because batteries that may appear dead in high-drain devices actually have enough juice in them to be used in low-drain devices like remote controls and such.

The kits are available in three color schemes from the fashionable “leopard” to the more subdued black and slate gray options.

At Adorama, they continue to be in Top Deals mode with a PTZ camera [I think that’s the correct name] headlining the action.

Fire TV devices, Samsung S22 flagships, Sony electronics and more can be found at the Amazon USA Gold Box.

If you are a fan of the “Bag the Bags” segment, there are 135 options in the Bags and Cases section of the Mega Deal Zone! I can’t list them all individually (obviously), but here are some eclectic (okay, RANDOM) selections from this list, me being such a prolific taste-maker of course 😉

ORIGINAL POST
Monoprice strikes back with a Big Overstock Sale with coupon promotions that go up to 80% off.

Yes, thanks to coupon code 80SALE you can get this 6ft Monoprice 4K HDMI cable for just $2. That’s $10 minus 80% off = $2.

The Big Overstock Sale also has select offers with 60% off and 70% off coupons, aptly named 60SALE and 70SALE.

But that’s not all, there’s also the 50% off Overstock sale with coupon 50SALE.

There’s also a 40% off Overstock sale with coupon 40SALE.

And if you follow the link-tab over there, you will also find the 10% off, 20% off and 30% off coupon sales, with the coupons predictably named 10SALE, 20SALE and 30SALE.

It pains me to say but there’s no 100SALE coupon promotion 🙂

Neewer is not the only game in town when it comes to budget Amazon-ian studio/lighting type of accessories, in this sale, there are 30 options of UBeeSIZE products. You can be the photo-hipster at the Thrifty Photographers Club that keeps irritating everyone by telling them “I was using these before they were cool” 😉

Not sure if this is a Black Friday sale, or the impending European Union Lightning Cable Death Sentence that is causing this, but coupon code BUYCABLE ges you $3 off these AmazonBasics brand Lightning Cables at Woot. Various sizes and colors, prices range from $4 to $8 before coupon. Prime members get free shipping, so that is mayhaps what encouraged this offer to become the #2 best seller at the Woot Charts
