Here is a quick deal roundup of deals that I felt were of interest. Do not forget, there is a new Special Deals page that does not post to the BoardingArea home page or the BA twitter feed, so make sure you follow me on Twitter or check in on the Running with Miles site as I begin to post these other deals on a more regular basis. These deals were ones that I knew would interest the more general audience at large so I dropped them in this roundup.
ProForm 2000 Treadmill – $979
Amazon has again showed some kindness to the runner by making their Deal of the Day a running item – a big one! This treadmill is at least $220 off the closest prices from competitors, plus you get free shipping with this. Even though we are in the midst of summer, it is never too soon to start thinking about the colder weather and trying to find a place to be active. One of the things I miss the most is having my own treadmill. I used to go down late at night, put on a baseball game, and just enjoy the quiet, personal time while racking up miles – fun times!
For you that are looking for a treadmill that can really help with your speedwork, this treadmill goes up to 12MPH (5 minute per mile pace). Combine that with the decline and this treadmill can give you some great fun for workouts. The treadmill I owned in the US (and put around 1,800 miles on it in 2 years) only had a 2.25HP motor – this one offers a 3.5 HP motor. My treadmill worked very well for me so you should be able to get even better performance from this one.
Memory Cards, Flash Memory, and SSDs
If you are in the market for more memory for your various devices, or even want to upgrade your computers hard drive to a solid state drive, Amazon’s bonus deal of the day will be of interest to you. There are a lot of good deals to be found within these categories, so check out the prices and what is available.
Amazon Fire Smartphone w/ Amazon Prime – $139
This phone has seen a lot of discounted prices as of late but this one is even cheaper than it was the other day from Amazon. The catch is that this is on eBay, not Amazon, so would not eligible for a difference if the phone you already bought (or are planning to buy) is discounted even more. I bought one from Amazon last week and am really hoping that tomorrow’s big Prime Day has it for $99. I will certainly get it matched to that price! Failing them matching it, I will simply return the one I bought and buy it tomorrow!
But, if you do not have Prime or do not wish to wait for a better deal, this is as good as it has been so far! For $139, you get a smartphone that can be unlocked to work with GSM carriers all over the world (the unlock code comes with the phone) and, more importantly, a year of Amazon Prime! Since Amazon Prime regularly costs $99 for a year, that is like getting a smartphone for very cheap!
