With Prime Day 2022 winding down, let’s hear what you all bought in the comments. What did you think about the deals overall? Did anything surprise you or disappoint you about the sale? Here is my take on the day and I’d love to hear yours.
I’m usually too busy posting during Prime Day to really spend much time shopping, but I did get a few things myself. I got both of the Fire TV Smart TV lightning deals, which were the 32″ Insignia 720p Fire TV for $49.99 and the 50″ Amazon 4K Fire TV for $99.99. I don’t need the TVs for normal use, but it’s nice having a variety of Fire TV models for testing things on and those prices were too good to pass up, so those are going into the mix. I also picked up the Kasa Smart Plug for $3.49, the “free money” Gift Card deal, and the Amazon Smart Air Quality Monitor for $41.99.
Overall, I was pretty impressed with the deals on Amazon devices. It seemed like there were more “new all-time low prices” this Prime Day than in most years. The Fire TV Stick Lite for $11.99 and the Fire TV Stick for $16.99 were genuinely surprising. I did not expect them to drop that low so soon. The Fire TV Stick 4K for $24.99 was definitely disappointing. It has been that price since Prime Day 2019, it’s the oldest device in the lineup, and the budget 4K device market is really heating up, so I was expecting it to surely drop further this year but it didn’t happen. The Fire TV Stick 4K Max for $34.99, which matched the Black Friday 2021 price, was expected because it’s still so new and the power and features you get for that price is a steal. The Fire TV Cube for $59.99 was right around where I thought it would be. It’s still a beast of a device, but it’s getting a bit old now and the Fire TV Stick 4K Max is giving it a run for its money, so it needed to hit a new low this year and it did. Lastly, most of the Fire TV Smart TVs reached new low prices, so that’s always great to see, not to mention the two TV lightning deals which were probably the best deals of the day as far as Amazon devices go.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on what you bought, what surprised you, and what disapointed you?
