google play books

The Amazon bargains I mentioned in last week’s Weekend Deals? (certain books or albums available for just a quarter) Those are thanks to Amazon price-matching promotions from the new competitor Google Play.

For a week, Google has been offering $.25 deals each day on one ebook, app, album, and movie rental.

“Now your favorite music, books, movies, apps, and games are all in one place that’s accessible from the Web and any Android device. Discover, buy and share like never before.”

Today’s the final day if you want any of the following for $.25:

$.99 movie rentals on Google

I have picked up Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain, Own the Night by Lady Antebellum, Mylo Xyloto by Coldplay, The Giver by Lois Lowry, and Guns N’ Roses Greatest Hits for a grand total of $1.25.

While this promotion is ending, the competition between Google and Amazon will probably lead to some more price-matching good deals in the future.

amazon holiday musci

If you need a soundtrack to go along with your holiday decorating, baking, etc. (and get a little tired of the same 10 songs on Lite98), you can beef up your tune collection by downloading a free song each day til Christmas (Update: Amazon wasn’t letting me link directly to the free music page for some reason. Follow the link provided and look for “25 Days of Free Holiday Music” image on the right-hand side of the page.) Currently available are “Ave Maria” (Celtic Woman), “Peace On Earth” (Brian Wilson), and “Adeste Fidelis” by Bing Crosby.

Amazon also has 100 Holiday MP3 Albums for $5 Each. Artists include Mannheim Steamroller, Frank Sinatra, and Amy Grant.

black friday amazon

Amazon starts celebrating Black Friday early. All week the website will be running special lightning deals (limited time and quantity) and other discounts for Black Friday Deals Week.

You shouldn’t have to stand in a long line to get a great deal. We’re searching for the best Black Friday deals everywhere–including Black Friday deals other stores are planning–so we can meet or beat their prices and bring them to you even earlier. These limited-supply deals will go quickly, but we’ll add new ones throughout the day, every day, so you can skip the long lines and still save a bundle. Plus, subscribe to our deals e-mails to get daily updates.

To keep up, you can bookmark the Black Friday page, install a special browser bar, or follow them on Facebook or Twitter, etc.

If you’re a parent and haven’t already signed up for the Amazon Mom program, you can get a free trial of Amazon Prime which is perfect for holiday shopping because it means FREE two-day shipping with no minimum purchase.

I love the Amazon Black Friday deals, but have to be careful because there are so many tempting offers!

November 1st? Must mean that…

Amazon is gearing up for Black Friday with a Countdown and Lightning Deals, as well as discounts in electronics, movies, toys and more.

There are some good sales on magazines, like Elle, Reader’s Digest, or Seventeen for $5 a year. Entertainment Weekly is $15 a year. (all are auto-renewal, so you’ll need to remember to cancel if you don’t want to be automatically renewed when your subscription runs out)
