AMAZON PRIME DAY DEALS:

If you missed out on Amazon Prime Day, here are some deals that are still going on (as of the time of this posting – prices are subject to change*):

Fire 7 Tablet (Under $50!)
So versatile, so portable, so AFFORDABLE! Seriously we love iPads, but it’s not always kosher to carry around a $300+ piece of machinery, esp if you’re headed to the beach, or plan to lend it to your 5 year old nephew while you’re playing video games — ahem, babysitting 😉. The new Fire 7 has better graphics, better battery life, and is thinner and lighter than its predecessors. This ain’t your Momma’s Fire Tablet! (But she’d love it if you got her one).

Fitbit Alta Fitness Tracker* (save $30)
Sooo, if you’re like us and have a bad habit of staying inside and staring at screens all day, it’s probably a good idea to try and get some exercise! Thankfully, even just walking around town or up the stairs to your office/apartment/house, can count, if you do enough of it 😉. Track those steps and make sure you’re staying healthy with this neat little number. It’s small and unobtrusive, and you can even save some dough if you nab it before deal’s end!

Oculus Rift & Touch Virtual Reality System* (save $100)
We are in LOVE with Virtual Reality (our Founder Desi spent 4 hours straight in VR the first time she tried it, and we’re lucky she ever came back out lol). But the price? Not always as loveable 😂. But this sale on the Rift system might just make VR your sweetheart too. Get it now before they jack the price back up! 😮

$10 Bonus on Amazon Gift Card refill
Whenever you don’t know what to get someone for their birthday/the holidays/when you borrowed something and broke it then tried to glue it back together which only made it worse, it’s time for an Amazon Gift Card! Best of all, it’s reloadable, so if anyone gifts one to you, you can keep it topped off and even get some free $ to boot.
