A hot deal is a significant discount (including shipping) on DIY or workshop related tools, machines, clothing, books, lumber, or general interest items. Use your discretion. If you think a woodworker (carpenter, machinist, wrench monkey, whatever) would be interested, post it. Please include a link, if online, a description, and the price. The discount amount in % or $$ is appreciated but not required.
What is an Amazon Warehouse Deal? It is an item that has damaged packaging or the item itself may be damaged. It could have been dropped off a truck, punched with a fork lift, opened for a photograph, or a customer return. They are sold as used and the manufacturer warranty may be void. Most of the AWD I’ve bought were only damaged packaging but you are taking a risk. Note: just because they are sold as “used” does not mean they are actually used.
Amazon ‘2 Left’ Deals Occasionally there will be a super low price on a new item that says “Only 2 left in stock”. Once 1 is purchased, it jumps back to full price so it is often advantageous to go ahead and buy both at the reduced price. For example you might see a $50 item for $8, 2 Left. If you buy one, the last one jumps back to $50, but you can buy both for $8 each ($16 total).
