Morning Deals Round-Up

• If you are actually going to buy an MP3 player that isn’t an iPod, Best Buy has a promotion that gives you a free $50 gift card with the purchase—excluding iPods. The Sandisk Sansa 512MB player is just $100, for instance.

• Or! Ditch the gift card and get twice the capacity in the Creative Zen Nano 1GB MP3 player at Amazon. It’s $109, which isn’t bad on its own, but also has a $10 MIR.

• Or even! Today’s Woot, the Virgin Electronics 5GB MP3 player with FM Tuner and speakers for $125, shipped. These were pulled from the shelves nearly as soon as they arrived, but they really aren’t a bad deal. We say go for it.

CircuitCity has lots of little gadgets from NexxTech in deep discount, most of which would make passable stocking stuffers. Especially the Blue Bug Massager. [via DealNews]

• If there is one pointless purchase we have resisted so far this year, it would be the Back to Basics TEM500 Egg & Muffin 2-Slice Toaster and Egg Poacher aka The Egg McMuffin Machine. Amazon has it on sale for $40, shipped.

    ugh creative muvo 512s were $20 shipped from cambridge sw on thanksgiving – why would you now pay 50 for the same piece of crap?

    • Or! Ditch the gift card and get twice the capacity in the Creative Zen Nano 1GB MP3 player at Amazon. It’s $109, which isn’t bad on its own, but also has a $10 MIR.

    again, overpriced crap – why would you buy creative product from amazon when creative practically gives it away on their own?

    again, cold as ice – it’s a closeout product and has proprietary cables

    this thing came with a built in coffee maker as well on target back to school for 30 bucks –

    most people who post bad deals do so because their website is piled high with affiliate links – as this site is not piled high with amazon affilaite links – wtf are you thinking?

    yeah these are great prices compared to b&m purchases in manhattan, but so is anything!
