My son wants a gaming chair (his current chair is pretty bad, so he needs something new)

Been looking at a few deals but I have no idea what I am looking for.  Any recommendations?  Thanks

Anybody know of good wireless, Bluetooth headphones suitable for running, etc.? Any I have tried don't stay connected to my Samsung Galaxy when I'm using Spotify.

I've been pretty happy with these. The sound is unspectacular but solid, they stay put while you run, and it's hard to beat the price IMO.

Same. I've been very happy with mine, and that's a really good deal. Think I paid close to $30 for mine.

ETA- I have an iphone tho. No experience linking with Galaxy.

Where did you see the Ring 2 doorbell for $99? Is that the Ring Pro or is it different?

You have to order it using Alexa I believe. Ring 2 and Ring Pro aren't the same product.

There was  a pretty insane TV deal through Best Buy/Amazon this AM around midnight PST. 75' Roku Smart TV for $399.

It was this TV:

Prices are back up but possible marked back down during prime days. I'd just recommend going to the slickdeals hot deals forum and refreshing. They do a good job of posting the deals.

Man. Id jump on that in a hot second.

I have the S517 49" in my bedroom and the R617 65" in my living room. Went TCL and won the panel lottery twice, great TV's IMO and glad I made the purchase. Tried both out post-calibration and the picture is outstanding. If you go this route, be sure to buy an extended warranty as the panel lottery from their lack of QA is a very real thing with this brand. I took the plunge because outside of an OLED when I read RTINGS forums on the higher priced brands I was interested in, I'm reading more and more about quality issues, so I figured what the heck.

There's no monthly fee right? Thinking of getting this. Looks like you can give Amazon access for package drop off? Anyone do that?

MyQis older, no Alexa no camera so I can't speak to that.   It syncs to your garage door opener like the button in your car or other remotes.

I have the app on my phone and am notified whenever it's opened.  I can open/close it remotely from my phone.

 

I will say on really windy days the sensor goes a little wonky

Eta: there is no cloud service with my opener at all so they're yeah there's no monthly fee

I ordered the MyQ because it can be used with Amazon package delivery. For $30 not bad.

I also ordered the 14 piece Ring system, the 6 additional sensors, and the Ring Video Doorbell 2.

Bye $500. Like I said though, $50 a month savings on monitoring pays for it quickly.

Same price on Amazon currently, but you have to buy online I believe to get the $45 sling credit.

Also, you could pick the HBO credit (2 months I think).  I don't think you get both.

The MyQ doesn't work with Alexa for liability reasons. For example, if you were inside the house and your kid was in the driveway standing under the garage door and you told Alexa to close it, it might close on your kid. (A lot of people have sensors to prevent that, but you know what I mean.)

Sling credits may be helpful if you want cheap option for NFL Redzone. The 3 months credit will get you NFL redzone access for $20/mo plus channels Sling offers. 

The $14.99 $fire stick package right after midnight gave the stick, 2 months HBO and 3 months $45 Sling credit. Tried searching to find it and appears now dead. Brings up "Page Not Found". Perhaps it'll come up again before the prime days end.

To confirm - redzone package with them is $35 a month, and the credit knocks that down to $20?

From my understanding that's correct. $25 Blue Package (I think it's Blue) + $10 Sports Package that includes Redzone - $15/mo credit. 

I don't think it works with existing customers from what I read. My assumption would be if you're an existing customer right now, let your current subscription lapse, then use a different email address to start service. The Sling credit must be activated by Aug 31 so if you time activation right, you can get the first 12 weeks of NFL season/Redzone at $20/mo.

Oh yeah to add. For safety reasons if you use the app to close the garage. A light will flash and it will beep for approx. 30 seconds before closing

BS.  It doesn't work with Alexa or other 3rd party apps because Chamberlain wants to negotiate subscription fees like they've done with IFTTT and Google Home. Alexa is no different than you closing the garage door with their app from inside your house while your kid is under the door.

With the wireless headphones I have tried, I don't have problems with connectivity with tablets, PCs or even my phone when I am stationary. But,when I am running outside, the connectivity can be anywhere from not  bad to awful.

I’ve been eyeing an Alienware m17 laptop for a few months. Checked out Amazon today to see if it was on sale - factoring in the prime 6% cash back, it was $400 cheaper than Dell’s website (which is also running a prime sale), and about $800-1000 cheaper than normal retail. Pretty nuts.

The Sling credit was supposed to be for all Fire devices bought anytime today and tomorrow.   I'll see if I can find it.

Here it is with the 4K stick.  I saw it elsewhere it was separate and said you get it for all Fire device bought during prime days.  If you really want it get a hold of customer service.  They are supposed to email you a code within a week or so.

Bought Galaxy Tab A $159, 4K Fire Stick $24 and 128GB mini card $20.

The good:  I had a suspicion the old lady had forgotten about the gift card I gave her for Valentines so I tired the code.  $50 off!

The bad:  The shipping said to order within the next 12 hours to get it by Wed.  A couple hours later when I pushed the button the shipping changed to Thurs.  We are out of town this weekend starting Thurs.  I imagine their shipping channels get blocked up, but, they ought to honor the ticker and Prime 2-day.  I mean they have all year to prepare.

Anybody with Bluetooth earbud experience...specifically Altec Lansing MZX635?  I've been thinking about getting a pair.  These have some mixed reviews, but at only $20, I may take a chance...   

ETA...lol...in the time it took me to post this, the deal filled up and the price jumped to $32.70.

I have a pair of galaxy ear buds i might sell. Got for free when i bought my S10 Plus and only tried them once or twice. They are nice but i just don't like earbuds with squishy tips. Really, i like my wired airbuds. Wouldn't mind trying airpods. I do have an android though so alot of the functionality isn't there.

I think these are the ones. Not "international version" or whatever though.

Those are squishy?  They don't look like it.  Anyway, hard ear buds fall right out of my ears.  I am much better with squishy ones.  I always have trouble keeping ear buds in my ears.  That is one of the reasons I have been so hesitant to get a pair.  At least with wired ones they can't fall far and get lost.  I was looking at some Bose ear buds that had a finder feature on an app. That sounds like something that would come in handy if I go wireless.

ETA...Ah, I now see the squishy side down in the case...
