If you go to Amazon.com/primeday you can see all the current deals
Remember there are lightning deals that go away after a while

The Fire 10 tablet is $79 right now, that's 50% off

Ok I realise I wasn't clear in my post.
I bought two of these a month ago for the full retail price and shipped them via skybox no issues.
Now I am seeing it for the $79 on the site but when I add to cart and try to checkout even with my Prime membership I am not allowed to purchase because they suddenly won't ship to my skybox address.
Anybody else experiencing this or similar or is this just an issue on my end? This only happens when I try to checkout though.

Factory refurbished is usually no problem. Factory refurbished items are usually open box from customers who returned it to the manufacturer and a component was replaced. So it's like new. eg. if the hard drive wasn't working, or the wifi wasn't working, with mass production techniques today, they just replace it with a new component, QA test and send it back out labelled as "refurbished" by USA law. The item is usually a bit cheaper. The only thing is about those refurbished business computers... they're old spec. Which means they were made long ago. And Dell/HP took it back from a business which was running the components hard. Which means shorter life cycles for the electronics. Not worth my money for old stuff like that. Only current market specs refurbished.

i have taken the risk in the past and it had worked out ok. Amazon has a warranty, and the manufacturer would have an international warranty to fix at a local authorized center.

Black Friday time again. I hope Pricemart and all other local stores stretch out their sales the whole week this year instead of causing a crowd during a pandemic- or have online sales

Right now it’s madness with shoppers in Pricesmart. Almost every trolley has a TV in it. Seeing a JVC Smart 50” for $2500

last year i bought a samsung 4k tv and i think the warranty was 1 year, so maybe for TVs it's 1 year but other/cheaper electronics it's less

I literally just exited Pricesmart, Chaguanas and counted 20 JVC TV's being cashed out in the space of around 10mins. You would have never guessed that we have a job stability issue in T&T right now. I must say, I am impressed with our financial capabilities.
