    Amazon.com Prime Day 2020 is October 13-14th. I'm not expecting much in the way of computer component deals, but it's worth a browse.

    Not sure how VALID this notice is, but this is probably TRUE for the country. I could see the need to close during the Black Friday frenzy. 

    "MALLS & OUTLETS CLOSED ON THANKSGIVING DAY 2020"


    Expected VMWARE Black Friday Discount:
    "2019 Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals coming from VMware! Shop vmware.com starting on Wednesday November 27, 2019 to save up to 60% off on Fusion, Fusion Pro, Workstation and Player."

    Exepected Microsoft Store Black Friday Discount
    "Save on Surface, Xbox and more!"

    Expected Bose Black Friday Discount
    "This year you’ll save 40% to 50% off select audio products when bought directly from their site."

    I will post more as I see them coming.

    I think after November 3, 2020 we will see a lot of the state-level restrictions on business lifted. Florida and Indiana have already lifted all restriction on restaurants, so the ball is rolling.

    First thing I've noticed on Prime Day computer components: Up to 30% off Build-Your-Own PC components from AMD, MSI, ASUS and more

    Oh, don't forget to check out NewEgg as well.

    Be sure to check Amazon price history sites like camelcamelcamel to check how good a price you are seeing is.

    I bought a Crucial MX500 2TB SSD for $177. That's the lowest price ever and  $50 lower than the same item on NewEgg.

    Just picked up a couple HAM radios on prime day sale. If you are interested in outdoors, trails, hiking, outlander, off-road, 4x4, camping, prepping, then you know HAM radio is a must.

    2PCs Baofeng Radios UV-5R MK5 8 Watt - $75.44 for 2 or $40 for 1. 

    I still need to get my HAM license, I know I know.... (and no you don't need a license to buy ham radios for those that are curious about my comment)

    I bought a Baofeng several years ago to go with my General and hardly used it. I need to get with a local Ham group for some stimulation.

    OK, well, APD for computer components was good if you were looking to build a mid-level system with Ryzen 7, ATI GPU, and MSI mobo, which makes a good gaming system. Unfortunately for me, higher-end stuff wasn't on discount. I ended up buying a Thermaltake C35 case to get my game build off the ground and a few small items. I'm hoping the BF deals will be wider and better.
