In case you haven't heard (ha!), Prime Day is coming. We know a thing or two about Amazon's big sale, so we've devoted this entire episode to Prime Day tips and tricks -- not including this sweet late-breaking deal, which emerged after we'd recorded.

We also circled back on a couple earlier discussions. Is it possible I was wrong (gasp!) about the value proposition of Microsoft Office? And how did we forget to address the virtual elephant in the virtual Oculus Quest 2 room?

Another bit of news on tap: The new Cheapskate text-message system is up and running! Find out more about it -- including a little secret I haven't mentioned elsewhere. By the way, I wanted to call this the Cheapskate Broadcast System, but apparently "CBS" is already taken. 😜

It's a lively discussion, folks -- hope you'll tune in! You can listen to the new episode (and past ones) right here:
