Where were all these amazing deals?
I did not come any amazing deals. I did get offers for the 29$ Android 4.0 tablet that had outdated specs and was made by a manufatcurer I never heard of. Uh, and I have to pony up 149$ first and then wait 8-12 weeks for the mail in rebates that probably get magically lost...and those are for bundled software that does not run on the tablet and that anyone in their right mind would neither buy nor install on their PCs.
Or the deals that are all "sold out" just a minute after the deal was sent to me. At least I got recommendations for "comparable products", typically products that have worse specs and cost more.
Or the deals that have the low price up until final order placement where the price either magically increases or dubious fees make this no longer to be a deal.
Or the switcheroo where only at the very end of ordering a hint gets dropped in the fine print that you might be buying a refurbished item,,,and then get one that misses all the essential accessories and comes with a lousy 90 day warranty.
I rather wait until January or February when tech gear is always the cheapest.
