Amazon Friday Sale (Awesome Queen Mattress Sale Edition)

Written by

As many of my regular readers know by now, every Friday Amazon has a sale. Usually it's a good place to pick up some highly discounted kitchenware. In fact, about half my kitchen was bought from the Amazon Friday Sale. Every week, I hope Amazon puts on a new or unusual product, because, let's face it, reading about a sale on drinking glasses isn't that entertaining. As always, deals are for today only, so attack the deals quickly before they are gone.

I didn't spot anything too unique. Check out the Ninja Star Knives below! However, I also thought the sale on a particular mattress warranted a post. Then I found a couple of other items that I thought might be worth talking a bit about.

  • 10 inch Memory Foam Mattress (all sizes) - Memory foam mattresses aren't cheap. If you go with the Tempur-Pedic brandname be prepared to drop some decent cash. The Queen size version of this mattress is usually $1200, but it's on sale for $339... with free shipping. That's a savings of 72% off. If you go for the twin it's only $250 a savings of 75% off. The king size will cost you $550, but that's still cheap considering. The mattress comes well-reviewed receiving and average of 4.5 stars out of 5 from 25 customers. In my mind, there are great deals and then there's something like this that takes it to the next level.
  • Legnoart Ninja Star Knives - I have always wondered what my kitchen was missing and now I've found it. This product isn't really called Ninja Star Knives, but that's what I'm calling it. I know ninja stars are supposed to be flat, but why deal with two-dimensional weapons when you hurl a three dimensional star of pain at your enemies. Little Billy will quickly learn not to spoil his dinner with cookies with this around.
  • Calphalon Commercial Hard Anodized 12-Quart Stockpot - We have one of these stockpots for when we make our own beer. Ours might be a little bigger than 12 quarts, but I'd be surprised if it's that much bigger. I believe ours was $30 for cheaply made stainless steel version. Spending an extra $16 for a name-brand quality one like this seems like a no-brainer. With 130 customers giving it an average review of 4.5 stars out of 5, the odds are good you are going to be happy with the purchase.
  • Cloer Electric 57-Ounce Cordless Water Kettle - We have an ordinary looking aluminum one of these and use it quite often. This is one of those times, that I have to fight the urge to buy something I don't need because it looks so damn cool! Amazon is helping me out greatly by only discounting 10%. If it was 50%, I might be in deep trouble.
  • Blue Rhino SkeeterVac Mosquito Eliminator - I point out this product, because I wanted one back when I lived in Boston. However, Amazon is giving you less than 10% which just isn't that good for a Friday Sale item. Amazon you can do better.
  • Space Bag Vacuum-Seal Storage Bags, Extra Large, Set of 2 - This is another quality product. It's well worth the money to reclaim some space. However, at a Friday Sale savings of $1.00 (or 7%), it's as if Amazon is driving me to go look on Ebay for a better deal.

    you aren’t saving anything on the Sarah Peyton. The artificial list price is just that, besides, the matress has been at that “sale” price for like forever. it is sort of like those persian rug or any other stores which have perpetual liquidation sales to get people to think they are getting huge savings, when the sale price is actually the regular price.

    anyways, not all memory foam beds are created equal.

    I know that all memory foam beds are not equal. However, I haven’t seem one that cheap and it is well-reviewed – especially with free delivery.

    You are right that it’s not as big savings as I thought as it’s around $400 today (just $60 more than the extra sales day).
