Prime members: Buy a $40 gift card and get a $10 credit 4 comments

For a limited time or while supplies last, Prime members can score a $10 promotional credit when they buy a $40 or greater Amazon eGift Card!
Go to this page. You must select the PRIME DAY gift card as shown in the graphic on the left. If you select Happy Birthday, you won’t get the deal.
 
You must buy at least a $40 card and can get that amount by completing the ENTER AMOUNT section. In the email option, I put in my email address. You may want to send the card to someone else. The $10 credit will be applied to your account, not theirs.
I added the card to my cart and when checking out, I input the promo code GIFTFORPD21. A pop-up assured me that I would get the $10 credit.

In short order, the email of my $40 gift card purchase was received and I’ve applied it to my account and Amazon sent me another email telling me that my gift card had been received. Those email bots must go bonkers when people send gift cards to themselves. Now I am waiting patiently for Prime Day.

Act now! Amazon will share your internet with your neighbors beginning June 8 11 comments

You may not have heard, probably because Amazon doesn’t want you to know, but on June 8 Amazon will begin sharing your internet with your neighbors via Alexa and Ring. We have good relationships with our neighbors, but I don’t want Amazon sharing our internet with them!
An article on arstechnica.com tells more about it:

If you use Alexa, Echo, or any other Amazon device, you have only 10 days to opt out of an experiment that leaves your personal privacy and security hanging in the balance.
 
On June 8, the merchant, Web host, and entertainment behemoth will automatically enroll the devices in Amazon Sidewalk. The new wireless mesh service will share a small slice of your Internet bandwidth with nearby neighbors who don’t have connectivity and help you to their bandwidth when you don’t have a connection.
 
By default, Amazon devices including Alexa, Echo, Ring, security cams, outdoor lights, motion sensors, and Tile trackers will enroll in the system. And since only a tiny fraction of people take the time to change default settings, that means millions of people will be co-opted into the program whether they know anything about it or not.

 
Not all Ring and Alexa devices are included in Amazon Sidewalk. The list of devices which would be included in the internet sharing program includes: Ring Floodlight Cam (2019), Ring Spotlight Cam Wired (2019), Ring Spotlight Cam Mount (2019), Echo (3rd gen and newer), Echo Dot (3rd gen and newer), Echo Dot for Kids (3rd gen and newer), Echo Dot with Clock (3rd gen and newer), Echo Plus (all generations), Echo Show (all models and generations), Echo Spot, Echo Studio, Echo Input, Echo Flex.
 
To opt out you must use the Alexa mobile app. In my opinion, Amazon didn’t make it easy. Follow these step-by-step actions to take to opt out for Alexa.
 
• Open the mobile Alexa app
• Open More (lower right corner)
• Open Settings – below Skills and Games
• Open Account Settings
• Open Amazon Sidewalk
• Slide to disable Amazon Sidewalk
 
PLEASE share this information with everyone you know who has Alexa or Ring. You can read more about Sidewalk on Amazon’s webpage. The page includes helpful FAQs.

Going to the beach?
Love this beach towel! Reminds me of bookshelves my aunt might have.
I use beach towels as tablecloths on picnic tables during the summer. This one might be too unique to risk a food stain.

Click on the towel to see a bigger, better photo.

Audible Flash Sale – Yesterday’s buys
Yesterday I bought these books during the Audible $5 flash sale:
