Philips Sonicare Essence+ for $26 w/FS with coupon

Brushing teeth many may consider a boring chore, but when you see the dentist bill for a crown or a root canal, you’ll see it as a financial savings task instead! And if you are too sleepy at night to brush vigorously, a powered toothbrush can do most of the work for you.

Which brings us to a limited time $10 off clip-on coupon at Amazon, it’s the new condition Philips Sonicare Essence+ rechargeable electric toothbrush going for $26 with free shipping after the clip-on coupon is factored in. The price is just over $25, so non-Prime members get free shipping too.

The color scheme, the “Mid Blue”, model HX3211/30 goes for this price. On the same listing there are two other colors that currently go for $4 more.

Note that both the prices of these and the coupon can change at an time. They are not a gold box deal, so there’s no preset amount of time. On the other hand, they could continue to be offered for days or weeks. Only Amazon’s bots know for sure 🙂

Rent (HD) for 99c: “The Foreigner” with Jackie Chan

If you are planning to have free time to watch a movie in the next 30 days (it may sound like a joke, but a number of digital movie rentals expire unused), and you have 99c to spare, or you have Amazon digital credit or store credit, for a limited time Amazon is offering digital rentals of “The Foreigner” with Jackie Chan and Pierce Bronsan for $0.99.

Once you rent the movie, you have 30 days to begin watching it. Once you begin watching it, you have 48 hours to finish. You can watch it as many times as you want during that 48 hour time period. If you don’t start watching it, there is no refund. Hollywood wins 🙂

If you are a fan of the classic white men’s briefs, Amazon is currently having a 7-pack of them on sale for $7, that’s $1 each. You can buy up to four 7-packs on sale, so $28 gets you four weeks worth 🙂 As of the time of writing, only the Large, Medium and Small sizes are going for $7. The other sizes go for more.

This is not a lightning deal, so it’s hard to guess when the offer will expire. One way these offers expires is when they sell out. If not, they may continue until Amazon’s AI robots decide to change the prices 🙂

YMMV $3 Kindle store credit towards select ebooks

Check your Amazon emails if you are a Kindle ebook reader! You may have received an email that offers you a $3 store credit that can be used towards 28 specific ebook titles. The majority of these ebooks are $3.99 or $4.99, so you’d be getting one of them for 99c or $1.99, or free if you are “slow shipping credits” in your account.

All of them are “Kindle Unlimited” ebooks (which is probably what gives Amazon flexibility to do a promotion like this since the big media publishers are too uptight), but they are among the top rated or most read. I recognize a handful of them…

Remember, you can’t get the $3 off discount from the website above. You need to have receive an email from Amazon offering you this $3 off promotion…
