I have jumped on that deal a couple times. Still have a bunch of credits there that eventually I will get around to using but it is a great deal.

AMAZON workers plan Black Friday protests against inhumane conditions...

Amazon warehouse walkers could walk out over Black Friday as sales set to soar
Staff say there have been 'broken bones' and injuries among staff in the UK
Ambulances have been called six hundred times in three years, it was revealed
Amazon officials denied any reports there would be disruption as 'simply wrong'

I'm guilty of buying a houseload of crap from Amazon (though I just paid $7 extra for the privilege of using someone else).

Amazon is playing the pricing game, which is a race to the bottom. And, as Seth Godin says often, "The problem with a race to the bottom is that you might win. Or, even worse, you might come in second."

In the meantime, I try to make Black Friday and Cyber Monday "no shopping days"
