if you're a student or teacher the NYTimes is offering you a subscription for a dollar a week.

I just went through the process & was approved despite the fact i'm attending a continuing ed department. Here's the link

Forum Housekeeping:

Adding "Random Deals/Sales" to the title to help clarify the thread's main topic and purpose.

Hopefully, more people will post a deal or flash sale of the day that they come across.

OK people I was waiting on Black Friday to upgrade my phone. Costco just leaked their BF Ad. In it they are advertising the Samsung S10 for $429.99 with the stipulation of 'requires activation on device payment'

now a lot of time you need to activate a new line for these deals which is why I was holding off cause the savings is eaten by having to have a new line of service that costs $20 a month and you need to keep that line for $24 months. However this just says device activation and not device activation on a new line or new line required, or anything similar to that. So do you think I am interpreting it correctly that the phone is $429.99 and there is a one time fee for them to activate the phone or do you think it will require a new line?

Given that this is Black Friday I am thinking just the one time activation fee

$630 was about what i paid for the s9note last BF for a verizon platform [member=1222]mllNY[/member]

the only requirement was that i sign up for the monthly no interest payments for the device but i could pay it off at any time. i think it worked out to be >$25/m
that might be what they're trying to say
Title: Re: Random Deals/Sales (The Buying Season is Beginning...)
Post by: mllNY on November 01, 2019, 09:57:14 AM
I think so too, otherwise it really makes no sense cause the phone base price is $899. So $430 plus the new line for 24 months ($20*24) would be $480 which is $900 which is no savings at all so I have to take it as $430 plus whatever the activation fee is (usually about $20 to $30) which is still a good savings on a $900 phone.

Just gotta wait for what Verizon is going to do as well to see which is better

I saw that screen door, it was neat but I didn't end up getting one.

I got some Christmas gifts for the family. They aren't on here so...Airpods are only $115 and 23andMe is $99 (50% off). Good deals!

The only thing that interested me was the self emptying robotic vacuum.  I already have Roombas but not having to empty the bin each time is very appealing.  The price is only about $60 lower than Costco.  I'm not sure it's worth it considering the Costco warranty.

If you don't want your DNA sold, make sure to turn that off.  The default for consent is on.  I didn't know that 23andme sold DNA until years later and then I turned it off.  Which is like closing the barn door after the horse has already run off.  My DNA is out there floating about in untold databases.

i was looking at those - but all the stuff i'm getting is in the under $20 range that i've been wanting for months. Plus i really like my current vacuum

It's time for the annual tradition to cancel the account made with last year's $1.99 promo and make a new account with this year's $1.99 promo. This year they offer to let you keep the $1.99 price with no end date when you go to cancel but that's not reflected on the billing page. It says the next payment will be the full price even after you accept. There's a glitch somewhere. Whether that's on the billing page or on the retention offer.

Actually the ad said it's good for existing customers too
So we *should* be able to roll it over

It says it's good for returning customers.  A returning customer is different from an existing customer.  A returning customer is an account that as been unsubscribed for 3 months or longer.  The ad explicitly says existing accounts on the $1.99 plan from last year are not eligible.

I've had probably 5 Hulu accounts since the service started. Black Friday 2018 I used one account to get the 99 cent deal. 2019 I cancelled that account and used a different account to get the 1.99 deal. And this year I was able to use the same 2018 account (the one I cancelled in Nov 2019) to get 1.99. In fact they sent me an email for it specifically. I simply logged into that inactive account, hit resubscribe, and listed the 3 plan options, including the $1.99 option. It's weird that it wouldn't let you do the same.... but you can probably just sign up for another account using another email address (and probably another credit card, but I'm not sure).

Through Roku, 2 months of Epix, Starz and Showtime are 99 cents/month.  Then it reverts to full price.  2 months for $2 each is enough time to binge a lot of series.

thx, i wish i had roku. I'm tied into the amazon fire stick #sigh

I did just pick up a Ring 3 for $99 at amazon. To get that price you'll need to order it through Alexa. Being away from my alexa device I was able to order it through the alexa app on my phone.

You may have seen them at cons; they always have a table full of fancy, geeky chocolates. Their chocolates are works of art, and they were hit hard when they weren't able to go to cons this year. Pick up a chocolate light saber or Tardis or Harry Potter wand... you won't regret it.

Epic games has started their 15 days sale.  I think it's a new free game a day instead of once a week.  It definitely is endless $10 coupons.  Claim your first $10 off coupon and use that to buy a game.  You'll get another $10 coupon to buy another game.  Endlessly.  So $10 off as many games over $15 at Epic as you want.
