10. Nothing beats Amazon Prime and now you can gift 3 months for $33 or a full year for $99 more. Once you have prime, pick up the 9to5Toys product of the Year Amazon Echo Dot for $40. Prime is pretty much the best deal you’ll find anywhere on free 2 days shipping, free music, movies, books, ebooks, etc etc.

Best Buy’s Ebay site has 16 AA Rechargeable batteries for $11.99 shipped. (also available at Best Buy) That’s typically the price for 2 or 4 so this is a no brainer deal, especially with the holiday gifts coming in at record speed. These are on clearance and may or may not arrive by Christmas unless you add shipping or in store pickup (Delivered Dec. 23-28th) but get impressive 4.6/5 star ratings. 

You’ll need a battery charger for these which start at around $8 if you don’t already have one. 

In fact, these 200mAh Dynex Batteries are nearing the price of premium non-rechargable batteries meaning that even if you just go one and done, you are still pretty much breaking even. I just bought 4 so you might want to hurry… expand full story
