*NEW ALERT* came in while I was about to publish this blog entry on Dec. 22. (Remember that Prime member PRE-Christmas delivery was to end at Midnight EST, 9pm PST tonight (Sunday, 12/22).

I've updated the December 22 blog entry to December 26. NOTE: Special Christmas sales cited here are ENDED, as of 12/31
