Amazon Prime Day

So did anybody notice any deals out there for tank stuff or purchase anything on Amazon today? I've had my eye on an Finnex LED but thought it would be cheaper.

I picked up a like new light from the Amazon Warehouse..prime members get an additional 15% off today. Other than that, I didn't see anything all that great.

Sadly, I didn't find any great deals on any equipment related to hobbies. Too narrow of a market I suspect. Except a Sous-vide cooker; which I guess could be used as an accurate heater/thermostat if you have to keep a small tank within a 0.1 degree temperature range or if you have a magical fish you found living in a hot spring and need to keep in 160 degree water.

For the first 2-3 hours of the day, 12am-2:30am on the west coast, There was a 20% off coupon on Kessil LEDs in the "outdoor and garden" section. I grabbed 2 A150, 2A160, and a 360 Tuna Sun, (I think thats it), don't really know if i'm going to use them or sell them, etc

Also grabbed a 24inch Finnex Planted+ 24/7 I thought it was sold out... apparently not, Never used finnex, everyone always speaks so highly of it.

I was on there looking at some misc things...didn't even know a deal was going on so obviously nothing good.

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.

I have to agree. I've come to expect nothing but greatness from amazon; but this was a total let down and a complete waste of time. I really think they jacked up their prices on a lot of things just to make it look like it was on sale yesterday. Not related to the hobby, but I was looking at a folding table and chairs via the prime sale. Original price was close to $200, on sale for $150ish I think and with the prime deal it was like $80.....walmart's normal online price for the same exact thing was less than $70!

Yes i think thats exactly what amazon did. Those type of report have been popping up. They jack up the price and say they cut it by so much percentage.
