It's Amazon Prime day

And at 11am there's some kind of a deal on the Pen F plus 17mm lens (for Prime members only).

How did you find out about the Pen F deal? I'm having a look through upcoming deals and can't see anything...

EDIT: Found it...only the black body so not for me...

Not for me either. I've already splurged on a (dirt cheap) EM5 mk 1 and a brand new MacBook Pro this week. My spending is ending.

Re: It's Amazon Prime day

I must say that other than a couple of things that have tickled my fancy, big Makita tool set, bike rack for the car, there haven't been too many things I've genuinely been interested in.

What I did learn last night is that Homebase seem to be clearing stock left, right and centre in order to accomodate the new product lines. There are some DIY and home bargains to be had, particularly in the Habitat sections.

Re: It's Amazon Prime day

I've got Prime, but other than an Ian Rankin Kindle book for free that I hadn't read, I haven't been attracted to anything. If you were going to get a Pen F anyway that was a decent deal.

Re: It's Amazon Prime day

Agreed. This is the most uninspiring sale (at least for my tastes) I've seen on Amazon.

Re: It's Amazon Prime day

Disappointly so given all the hype. Satisfied my GAS though, purchased some new screwdrier (good price on Amazon anyway plus I've used some vouchers I have), some stepper motors from eBay and a box full of electronics kit from elsewhere, both of which are for another distraction. Project, I obviously mean project

I'm still waiting for anything I'd be even slightly interested in to appear on Amazon Canada deals or sales. I'm getting a little fed up with Amazon Canada, it took them 9 or so days to ship a panoramic rail that was in stock when I ordered it.

Re: It's Amazon Prime day

I have love/hate with Amazon. I often complain and the deliver on the problem with good(questionable... see below) customer service. Often the extend Prime for a month free or chuck gift vouchers at you. Its a pain to complain though, I often get lost trying to find the correct way to do it on the website, but it does come up good if you can get there.

Earlier this year a friend wanted to take advantage of my Prime for some cycling kit he wanted for the weekend. Ordered, delivered next day with all the tracking, but it wasn't there when he got home, nor was there a delivery card. I contacted Amazon, they sent another package straight out, arrived the next day but my friend found it on his doorstep.

My thought is that it was left there the first time and an opportunist took it - he's had a bike stolen from the same address. I politely informed Amazon that the package was left on the doorstep, in view of the street and that gave them my theory. Cue a reply from a "call centre" email address stating that they were very sorry that the item hadn't turned up and they would be refunding me the whole 150-odd.

A little justice, Amazon paid towards their tax bill that day and both of us split the refund to buy yet more things we don't need!
