Anyone getting a bunch of stuff they don't need for cheap?
I picked up 2 FireSticks for $15 each yesterday, and today they had Firestick w/Echo Dot for $12, so I picked up that, I would have gotten more, but it only let me get one.
I don't need any more Firesticks, but for that price I can program them and sell them for $60 each easily. Plus I get a free Echo Dot out of the deal....
They also had 4K firesticks for $25.

I was told that come winter, if I didn’t run with a base layer... I would regret it.
I have the under armour under layer product. I like it but it’s only good to the thirties (F) for me. And that’s a stretch.

I cancelled my Prime membership two years ago and haven't noticed anything different in my life except I have more money in my account every month.

I recently saw a program that talked about all the counterfeit, 3rd party crap that gets sold on Amazon.

I didnt even realize Nike does not directly sell their products on Amazon, yet there are Nike products all over that website. There is no guarantee of any of it being legit.

Then there are massive issues with the review system, which also cannot be trusted.

I've stopped buying high priced items on that site without a thorough investigation first.

But dare I ask, how do you acquire your goods?
I take a daring trek...outside of the home. I brave the elements to the land of the old. Stores, the elders called them. They have all the goods found available by the Overlord. It's simple and outdated, I know. But I'm a simple man. I lead a simple life.

Btw should you chose to venture to the land of the old, please put a covering on your face. You'll be thankful for it later.

You can fit everything in your buggy? Your horse can pull it all?

Not only does my buggy have plenty of space but also has the power of three hundred five horses...perhaps I'm not as simple of a man that I have led you to believe. My apologies.

Yep bought counterfeit Airpods last year from Amazon and made sure Amazon was the seller. Tried pairing them and they just wouldnt pair correctly, my son grabbed them and said these are too light, compared them to his and they were fake. Went online googled counterfeit Airpods and the box was legit though the Airpods weren't with no serial number.

Started investigating and basically the theory is that Amazon has their bucket of Apple products, in this case Airpods. Seller Bob who is using Amazon as his drop shipper sells Airpods, all Airpods go into the same bin and are not sorted by seller but as a product. So Baghdad Bob pulls one over on both Amazon and the consumer.

this is a good time for another PSA

Counterfeit items can be dangerous. Something labeled “body safe silicone” might be porous and toxic.

I would not recommend amazon as the purchasing platform for any of these items.
