1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Tony, can you create this?

    It would save us money and help PFM.

    It’s link affiliation, every time someone posts an Amazon link here it is tagged and I get a referral fee for anything bought as a result of sending that business there way. It is done automatically and largely transparently (the tag is visible in the URL). eBay is just the same.

    I’ll have a think, maybe just let this thread morph into it. I’m not sure it merits a separate room like the ‘Interesting eBay Auctions’ one, but that’s an option too if folk like the idea. The beauty is any link that appears anywhere on the site to product on works (I’m not registered with most of the international ones as we have so few outlinks to them).

    this is just so generalised. We shop all the time from Amazon - this week at least 4 things, and always I check the price and it is rarely more expensive

    Just want to say I know this and it is really why I started the thread.

    I wish the people posting in this thread just to whinge about amazon would bugger off, as a more polite way of saying what I actually think.

    Some decent booze deals, e.g. Laphroig Quarter Cask for £25 (link) and Scapa Glansa for £33 (link). The Amazon iPad app is borked though, just not showing the deals, I’m having to search via the web page, then buy via the app!

    Some classical box-set deals too (link).

    One of the best pieces of kitchen equipment we've ever bought. We have 3 of these bought after originally seeing a link to it for sale on Amazon here on pfm.

    29% off the usual price.

    This morning I’d swear I found AirPods on a prime day deal, but now can’t find them for the the life of me. Am I going mad and/or stupid, or are they there somewhere?

    The ones I saw were 119.99 with extra 20% off at check out. Perhaps they’ve disappeared?

    They would have been for purchase from Amazon Warehouse as AW were offering 20% selected items. No doubt, someone bought them and now they're gone.
