Amazon lightening deals - anyone got a bargain?

I have been using the lightening deals this last week not sure if it runs all the time but what with xmas coming up I have been looking to see if anything takes my fancy.

Only thing I got so far was 'Bluedio T2+ (Turbine 2 Plus) Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Headphones Micro SD Card/FM Radio Bluetooth 4.1 Headset On-Ear Headphones (Black)' for £18.99

A lot of the items original prices seem inflated and also a lot of the items that interest me will be listed but are not even reduced.

Anyone had any good buys?

And what's the weirdest thing you've seen listed? I've seen a belly dancing outfit and the other day a porn dvd called 'swing' where there was a naked lady on the front cover wearing a sex toy oO

Plenty of the 'deals' are for items which I already have, and have been sent FOC for reviewing purposes (headphones being a prime example. I have them coming out of my ears).
When I see the RRPs, it sends me looking for a deal on incontinence pads.

How do you get stuff for review purposes, I'm a very active prime member and a good reviewer posting reviews with photos and video but I never get to review anything for free sample

1) Get in the top 10,000 (I'm about 3,500)
2) Put your email address in your profile (preferably a spare account)
3) Have your details harvested by half of China

The golden days are over now due to Amazon.com's TOS change, but there are still freebies to be had.

I hate reading reviews now just so many fakes and people being bought to give a favourable review. Shame really almost impossible to trust anything you read now.

there are none, £9.99 then £19,99 then lightning deal £11.99

They've devalued Black Friday with this crap. They need to just do one main day of excellent deals..

I just tend to ignore the ones that confirm they got a free sample, and look and the rest with a level head. Not much else you can do.

I hate Amazon's Black Friday this year, they're not doing any lightning deals at all on DVD/blu ray, games, books or music which is pretty much all I buy from them and I used to buy (waste!) loads of money in BF week. I know they've got separate offers on but none of them are coming up in the lightning deals which is half the fun.
