Just like last year, Amazon is once again doing their Amazon’s 12 days of deals promotion. In preparation for Christmas, they are offering 12 different themed deals each day.
Even though I’m annoyed that they are going “backwards” IMO, there are some pretty good deals available. Today is Day 9, and it is for “techies-a-tinkering with cheer”, with deals for “techies” which means cameras, STEM toys, and various other technology. You can check out all the deals on the main Amazon 12 days of deals page, but even though that is the main focus, there are still lots of deals on other things
A few of the Amazon 12 Days of Deals deals that I saw include:
- 35% off Sypder Outerwear jackets
- Get an HTC Vive Virtual Reality bundle AND $100 Amazon Gift card for $599 (regular price $799.99)
- 30% off Parrot Bebop 2 FPV drone Fly More Pack
- 30% off Nixplay Original Digital 15″ Photo Frame – regularly $209 now $146.99

- Snap Circuits Jr. SC-100 Electronics Discovery Kit (my kids love this) – regularly $34.99 today only $17.50
Amazon has also put their Kindle brand items BACK on sale – this runs through 12/24 though of course you’ll need to order before that to get it shipped to you before Christmas. These are similar prices to what they had back on Cyber Monday
- 7″ Kindle Fire for $39.99, and the bundle pack (includes the Fire, a case and a screen protector) for $59.97. The 10″ Kindle Fire 16GB is $199.99
- The Amazon Echo Dot is $20 off (now $29.99), while the full Amazon Echo is also $20 off (now $79.77)
- The Kindle Paperwhite e-reader is $20 off (now $99.99)

Other Amazon travel deals still available
Some of the Cyber Monday Amazon deals I still saw at the lower sale price, including
