    Those are terrible "deals". $10 off or so is not a bargain. I mean, it beats a sharp stick in the eye, but for a special sale day, not too impressed.

    The only good deals I've seen are:

    Samsung 970 Evo Plus 2TB for $300, though B&H Photo has the better deal as they give tax back on their store card, which can be higher than the 5% Amazon gives on theirs.

    Samsung 870 QVO 4TB at Amazon has a 25% cash back total offer, bringing it down to $337.50, or $84/TB.

    WD Red Plus 10TB NAS HDD for $189 at Newegg.

    Nintendo, XBOX, and Playstation cash cards 25% cash back total at Amazon today.

    Otherwise it's all pretty mediocre so far.

    Yeah, I don't see many good deals at all. Not great deals on Newegg, either.

    What a waste of time this has been.

    I don't know why you guys are so down on this stuff. These are some pretty decent deals for people who would enjoy several-dollar discounts on obsolete clearance items, paying half off an "original price" that is double msrp, paying a subscription fee to use physical spyware built by a company that explicitly pays people to review private recordings taken from always-on microphones and cameras... And don't even get me started on that awesome Razer stereo headset that is physically incapable of playing 7.1 sound.

    My point is the $120 SSD I was going to buy regardless is $4 cheaper today than it was 2 weeks ago, and $7 cheaper than it was 2 months ago. So this is the first time ever I've bought anything on Prime day. I'm very thrilled to be getting a "64% off original price" prime day exclusive deal ™

    The Oloy RAM is back up to 52.

    Amazon had a lot of door buster sales that only lasted 12 hours.

    A couple of good deals like the Logitech keyboard and the Samsung 970 evo plus but other than that it looks like regular discounts. Black Friday scam strikes again.
