Amazon Prime Day is coming (July 12), but guess what? You can start scoring deals right now. That's because Amazon is offering "Countdown" deals in the days leading up to the main event.
Anything good? Out of today's six items on sale, here's what I recommend:
- The Hisense 32H3B1 32-inch HDTV and Amazon Fire TV Stick for $119.99, shipped. The TV all by itself normally sells for around $130, while the Fire TV Stick runs $40.
- The refurbished Sonos Play:3 speaker for $224. It's available in black or white and certified to look and act like new -- complete with a one-year Sonos warranty. The same speaker would run you $299 from Sonos proper. I'm less enthused by the Sonos Playbar, which is $524, refurbished. That's still way expensive for a sound bar, one CNET found mediocre at best.
- The Ultimate Bond Collection + Spectre Bundle [Blu-ray + digital HD] for $89.99. Normally $300(!), this 25-disc set serves up all 24 James Bond movies, each with digital HD versions for mobile viewing. Kind of a must-have for any true Bond fan.
