Is Cyber Monday really a thing anymore? I mean, the original notion was that in the '90s, people might have no access at home, so they'd wait until work on Monday to go holiday shopping online. But these days, I'm pretty sure that most of the people likely to do online shopping are also likely to have home access. Anyway, there are still deals, at least.
First, Amazon's got another Free Prime 30-Day Trial
. If you're not already in Prime, the holiday season's a great time to use it for free shipping.
You can still use that 30% off any book coupon, which is a no-brainer.
I won't link to all the past posts (there's too much churn these days), but the music deals in this post
are all still active.
The Deal of the Day is on the Kindle Fire HDX 7"
for $179 ($50 off)! And Amazon Local's got a free coupon for 40% off select Kindle Accessories to go with it
The other DotD is on Mattel Toys
, with Barbie, Monster High, Fisher-Price, Polly Pocket, Max Steel, Thomas and Friends, and other brands on sale.
The Kindle Daily Deal is actually on dozens of books across genres for $1.99 a pop
. You'll find Pearl S. Buck, Robert McCammon, Leon Uris, Ruth Rendell, Erica Jong, Dean Koontz, Alice Walker, William Styron, Pat Conroy, Albert Einstein, Octavia Butler, Barbara Hambly, Ted Sturgeon, Allen Steele, James Morrow, and even Bill Shatner. There's also a bunch of DC graphic novels for $4.99 a pop.
As always, there's a ton of good Lightning Deals
if you've got the patience/luck (today offers things like The Tudors
, The Good Wife
, an Ouya
, Despicable Me
toys, tons of kitchen gadgets, and more).
Rerunning the Deals of the Week for those not online Sunday:
The Collections Deal of the Week offers 61-71% off complete runs (to date) of NCIS, NCIS: LA, CSI: Miami, and CSI: NY
. No, original CSI
(the best of the five crime shows with acronyms containing the letters "CSI" in them) is not a part of this sale.
The TV Deal of the Week offers 64-70% off sixteen different seasons of The Simpsons
, including all of the good ones.
The Family Deal of the Week offers most of their Miyazaki movies
for 50% off.
And the Blu-Ray Deal of the Week offers Battlestar Galactica
for $89.99 (70% off) on Blu-Ray and for $74.99 (63% off) on DVD. And yes, I get that it's strange that the Blu-Ray DotW includes the DVD edition, too. Ask Amazon, not me.
Yesterday's super-deal on Les Miz
is also still active.
Joining Les Miz as cheap digital purchases, you can nab Silver Linings Playbook
for $6.99, Now You See Me
for $6.99, and John Waters's favorite film of 2013, Spring Breakers
, for $7.99 (note that SB is available for free to Prime customers to rent, and that I'm not kidding about Waters
).Saved by the Bell: The Complete Collection
is $27.99 (44% off). It does not include Dustin Diamond's sex tape. That's a feature and not a bug.Ultraman: The Complete Series
is $6.49 (57% off). It also does not come with a sex tape.
The three-disc anniversary edition of The Sound of Music
(Blu-Ray/DVD combo) is $9.96 (72% off), and almost certainly better than the Carrie Underwood version will be (note that it's backordered, so you'll want to look in "more buying choices" on the right).
Other cheap Blu-Ray/DVD musical combo packs: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
($7.49/63% off) and Fiddler on the Roof
($7.99/68% off). You can also nab the Blu-Ray version of My Fair Lady
for $13.99 (54% off).\Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures
is $34.99 (55% off) on Blu-Ray, not a bad deal for all three movies, plus some truly awful bonus features (some fan film about Crystal Skulls).
In video games, there's a Cyber Monday special for Digital Download Games
, with not only solid discounts on a bunch of titles (Dishonored, Max Payne, Batman: Arkham Origins, Fallout 3, Sonic, Metro, Far Cry 3, Borderlands
, etc), but a $5 bonus download credit in January.
If you've got a WiiU and are still waiting on the backordered Batman
from yesterday, Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two
is $15 (50% off) and in stock.
If you've got a Vita, any of Little Big Planet
, Gravity Rush
, and Resistance: Burning Skies
, and Unit 13
are $9.99 a pop! Note that if you bought the Playstation Plus membership
the other day (or even now; it's the best $50 you can spend), Gravity Rush
In toys, the LEGO Superheroes 76002 Superman Metropolis Showdown
is $8.49 (35% off), the LEGO Superheroes 76009 Superman Black Zero Escape
is $13.99 (30% off), and the LEGO Super Heroes Spider-Cycle Chase
is $13.99 (30% off).
The Sonic Speeders Starter Set
is $9.99 (29% off, but actually about 50% below other retail prices after shipping).
The Lionel Polar Express Train Set - G-Gauge
is $97.99 (30% off). Unlike other things with "Polar Express" in the name, this train never passed through the Uncanny Valley.
And finally, Bejeweled, the Board Game
is $8.88 (56% off, about $10 below others after shipping). I'm assuming knockoff board games Candy Crush Saga, Puzzles and Dragons, and others can't be far behind.
