- Seagate Wireless 1TB Portable Drive for $120
For today, Amazon has posted a sale on a Seagate Wireless Plus 1TB Portable Hard Drive for $120.
It usually goes for around $160.
It has a built-in 10-hour battery and built-in Wifi, to wirelessly stream to your computers, tablets, and phones.
The $59 Kindle is the latest (7th generation) model, which has a touchscreen.
In our opinion, it is the best value for an eReader on the market.
Thousands of books are available on Kindle (often cheaper than the printed books themselves), and the Kindle can store thousands of books.
It uses a true LCD display and does not emit light, which is better on your eyes.
Staring at a tablet or phone is like staring at a light bulb, and can damage your eyes especially when used in a dark room.
A Kindle must be used with ambient light since it does not emit light, but will be healthier for your eyes.
The $99 Paperwhite has a built-in light, but also keeps your eyes healthy.
It emits light from the sides and illuminates surface of the display (unlike a tablet or phone that shines in your face).
- Cyberpower 1500VA Pure Sinewave UPS for $150 (expired)
Now through 4pm Eastern (1pm Pacific), Amazon is offering a Cyberpower 1500VA Pure-sinewave Battery Backup UPS for $150 with free shipping.
It is rarely sold for under $185.
In our opinion, this is the best UPS available for home offices and small offices that run sensitive computer equipment.
A battery backup (UPS) kicks in when the electricity goes out.
A pure-sinewave UPS ensures the power is as pure as possible when operating on battery, as shown in this video.
If you run a fileserver or computer, consider a UPS like this.
Power spikes are the most common cause of hard drive failures, in our opinion.
Having a good quality UPS should help the longevity of your computers and hard drives.
Last time we saw this UPS on sale was February, 2012.
Starting at about 5:30pm Eastern Time (2:30pm Pacific Time), Amazon is expected to offer a deal on a VideoSecu TV Tilt Wall Mount.

- Amazon Prime Membership $72 for 1-year, Today Only (expired)

You could try gifting a Prime membership to yourself (or someone else) at the reduced price, view & cancel your membership on its expiration date, then choose a delivery date the day after the Prime membership expires.
It is a risk, since Amazon could choose to prohibit all existing Prime members from this deal.
If so, they will credit your account the amount you paid ($72).
This Prime Membership for $72 deal will expire tonight at 11:59pm Pacific Time (3am Eastern).
Games can enhance visual perception, memory, creativity, and help develop critical thinking.
The downside of many games (in our opinion) is they are often played alone.
However, puzzles that need a group to solve (like jigsaw puzzles) are a great way to socialize by solving problems together, all while stimulating the mind.
Today's digjaw puzzle deals at Amazon are worth looking at for anyone who loves fun challenges and teamwork.
