- 2.(2 days ago)96W USB-C Power Adapter Click the $3 coupon under the $60 price, then add one to the cart. On the final checkout page, enter code EFTKYOZJ Final price is $27 plus tax. Includes a 6-foot USB-C cable, and connects to a laptop or battery pack that accepts USB-C power input.
Normally, USB-C chargers capable of up to 96W power would normally sell for $50 to $80.
We are excited about USB-C power cables because many modern laptops and some tablets support a lot of functionality by plugging-in a single USB-C cable. More than just power, adding a USB-C hub like this one can give power to the laptop or tablet, add an external monitor, gigabit ethernet, and USB devices over a single cable. Not every laptop/tablet can do USB-C power input, but if yours does, you can get more than just power input from a single USB-C port.$27

The price is average during pre-Covid times, and is a hot deal today because of limited supply.

- 7.(1 week ago)For this holiday weekend, Whole Foods Market posted automatic discounts for Amazon Prime members on many products. Lots of deli meats, snacks, and fruit have "prime member deal" discounts posted next to the prices. Some discounts are 15% to 33% off.
There are far more discounted items than those shown on their page. The only way is to search for groceries, and look for the green "prime savings" next to the prices.
Whole Foods, like many grocery stores, offers curbside pickup. Front door delivery is also available at many locations.
- 8.(1 week ago)Ecobee 5th Generation, also known as the Ecobee SmartThermostat with Voice Control, is on sale this weekend at most stores: for $200 at Amazon, Best Buy, Lowe's, and Home Depot. Update: Sale ended. Normally sells for $250.
It replaces the thermostat already installed in your home. Requires a professional to install.
This Ecobee comes with a remote temperature sensor, so you can better keep the room at the temperature where you spend time. Keep the sensor on your nightstand next to your bed, to have the thermostat better regulate the temperature of where you sleep.
Depending on where you live, some local electric companies provide rebates when purchasing a smart thermostat, because they help save energy.
Do a Google search for your power company name, followed by the word "marketplace" and see if they sell thermostats with discounts on the Ecobee (and other smart thermostats).
For example, Dayton Power & Light in Dayton, OH sells the Ecobee with Voice Control for $69 for their customers only. South Jersey Gas sells the Ecobee with Voice Control for $69 for their customers only. Georgia Power sells the Ecobee with Voice Control for $144 for their customers only. BGE Power in Central Maryland sells the Ecobee with Voice Control for $144 for their customers only.$200
- 9.(1 week ago)50-pack of basic surgical-like face masks for $29, in-stock with 2-3 delivery for Prime members. That's 58? per mask.
Other deals are available for half this price, with delivery times of 2-10 weeks. This deal delivers within a couple days.
Do not buy this mask expecting you will be protected from getting Covid-19 by wearing it, but rather, are for being a good person by helping others from catching anything you may be carrying.
Masks like these can be effective when everyone in a room wears them and practices social distancing, because the mask redirects germs and viruses downward rather than spreading freely in the air. Studies show most infections of Covid-19 happen from people who are asymptomatic, so in lieu of testing, if everyone in a room wears a mask like this and stays 6+ feet apart, the spread lowers.
Healthcare workers and anyone put in contact with Covid-19 patients use better protection with N95 masks, face shields, and clothes/shoe coverings which are in short supply because they are effective at protecting the wearer from becoming infected.$29
- 10.(2 weeks ago)Not a deal, but a tip for people working from home.
With so many people video calling/conferencing from home, having fast Internet throughout the home is more important than ever.
If your wifi signal is weak because it's too far from the router, ethernet wires are the best way to get reliable Internet.
Some modern homes/apartments have ethernet (Cat-5e and Cat-6) jacks in rooms, but what about older homes with just coax jacks?
If your home has coax cable jacks that are unused, you can get a pair of coax to Ethernet adapters for $155 and follow the steps to get gigabit ethernet via coax.
For example, if the router is in the basement and there is no Ethernet cabling but coax is available and unused by TV signals, using these adapters can send the Internet to another room in the home without worrying about unreliable wireless signal. Plug an Ethernet Switch or a powerful wireless access point like this one near your devices to get strong Internet to your home office, living room, kitchen, or wherever you need it.$155
- 11.(2 weeks ago)6-pack of Softsoap antibacterial soap in dispenser for $12.
Note that washing hands with soap is one of the most effective ways at preventing spread of Covid-19.

- 12.(2 weeks ago)TP-Link Kasa Smart Plug for $15. Normally about $18.

- 13.(2 weeks ago)Poo-Pourri Antibacterial Hand Sanitizer, 2oz bottle for $6.
Not a good price considering the small size, but is one of the few hand sanitizers available for delivery within 2 weeks.$6
- 14.(2 weeks ago)6-pack of Suave Hand Sanitizer Spray, 10oz bottles, for $27 ($4.50 per bottle).
According to the label, this contains 65% Ethyl Alcohol which, according to the CDC, is enough to kill Covid-19 and other viruses. Note that "Ethyl Alcohol" is the same thing as "Ethanol Alcohol", and this product's 65% is higher than the CDC's 60% recommendation.
A 10oz (295ml) bottle is pretty large for a sanitizer. We would guess that each bottle could provide at least 70 sprays.$27
- 15.(2 weeks ago)60-pack of individually-wrapped 4x3-inch 96% alcohol wipes for $17.15 (29? per wipe).
This looks good for: Wiping down groceries and containers that come into the home, Cleaning door handles after someone touches them, and Sanitizing a steering wheel or phone, when someone else uses them. Its 96% Isopropyl Alcohol content can kill viruses on hands, plastic containers, hard surfaces, and cardboard boxes.
However, as explained in this article, adding a little water to the pads could make them more effective. It seems too much alcohol can be less effective than alcohol mixed with a little water. So these pads CAN work, but may work better if you ADD water.
Otherwise, regular soap can be a good alternative for killing the virus. If you have a sink nearby, soapy paper towels and a little water should be another way to clean surfaces. And, of course, hand washing (with soap) after touching something that someone else has touched, is the best strategy to minimize your risk of catching Covid-19.$17
- 16.(3 weeks ago)Six-pack of 32oz Silk Almond Milk, Unsweetened for $12. This brand is carrageenan-free, a good thing for non-dairy milk.

Six-pack of 6oz Colgate Whitening Toothpaste, Sparkling White for $8. Normally over $10. 20-Pack AAA Alkaline Batteries for $4.60 when choosing Subscribe & Save and clicking the 30% coupon under the $6.96 price. After your order ships, be sure to cancel Subscribe & Save if you don't want Amazon to auto-reorder this item for you at a higher price on a future date. Grey Poupon Mustard, 8oz for $3. Same price as sold at grocery stores, but ships to your door. Single Dumbbell Workout Weight, 15 pound for $21 each, or 20 pound for $25.50 each. Note, each order comes with one (not two). Home workout equipment like this had been in very low stock, since people started staying at home. Note that Amazon has come under fire for the way it treats its workers. According to employees, it has been very slow at installing protections from Covid-19 and is under investigation for firing employees who complained about safety.$12

- 19.(3 weeks ago)(expired)
Non-contact voltage tester for $11, and click the $3 coupon under the price.
If you feel like attempting electrical work yourself, this tool can be very helpful. For example, if you bought "smart" light switches, replacing existing switches will involve handling electrical wires. Figuring out which wire is "hot" is important, because touching a "hot" wire will result in electrocution. Even with the power shut-off, it's best to be very sure by getting a second opinion with a tester like this.$7

- 28.(1 month ago)One of our friends nearly lost his life to Covid-19, with no way to say goodbye to family because his phone ran out of battery and family was not allowed to visit the ICU because of Covid-19.
If you would like to help others, check our their GoFunMe page, money goes to buying chargers for Covid-19 patients.
We recommend putting phone chargers, portable USB battery chargers, and cables in a "go bag" near the front door, a quick grab when en route to the hospital.
Our brand of choice for phone chargers and battery packs is, RavPower.
Here are some RavPower deals.
Chargers: RavPower 4-Port USB 8A Wall Charger for $17. Plugs directly into an outlet, so you may need long USB cables to reach the USB ports.
