REUSING Amazon Packaging Rather Than Recycling The Boxes — A PROPOSAL.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


Recycling boxes, i.e., cardboard, though better than just throwing it away, is extremely inefficient and costly in terms of energy.

The boxes are RE-PULPED then reconstituted again as paper or cardboard. That is wasteful.

It would so much better just to reuse the boxes as many of us do …

We also reuse boxes when we do returns.

So, why can’t we have a scheme where we can RETURN Amazon boxes to a Post Office.

USPS can send them back to an Amazon Fulfillment Center. In many cases they will be sending trucks to Amazon EMPTY — to pick up new loads of deliveries. So, this will make those trips more productive.

I cannot see why Amazon and USPS could NOT be able to get this to work. Yes, there will be some initial costs but Amazon will quickly be in the BLACK. Boxes are expensive, even for Amazon.



It is possible that there might be some Amazon customers who are squeamish about having things delivered in USED boxes, though to be fair you never know where a box has been. I have got plenty of Amazon boxes with cuts, tears and stains.

Yes, maybe Amazon could irradiate the returned boxes to appease all.

And, then there is another option. It can be part of your SHIPPING PREFERENCES. Amazon could give you a small DISCOUNT for checking an option saying “Will Accept Reused Boxes”.

I am sure consumer will buy into this. We take the cardboard to be recycled. So, taking it to a post office will not be that different.



I really would like Amazon to think about this.

What do YOU think?

Garmin Vivoactive 3: Price Reduction On ALL Models Precipitated By Delays To Slate – Gunmetal Version.

by Anura Guruge


All this as of Tuesday, November 14, 2017.

Click on images to ENLARGE them.


Current Pricing At Amazon; $279 for the ugly models.


All because the Slate — Gunmetal is still back-ordered!


But Amazon, per PHONE CALL, insists that I will get mine
on November 20, 2017.

There will be hell to pay if I don’t and I have informed Amazon of that.

Hell to pay” — will translate into a $48 (i.e., 15% rebate). {Smile}


Best Buy has already done its Price Match.


And at Garmin. This is a pretty POOR show on their part.


Garmin appears to have screwed-up pretty badly — in making the Slate/Gunmetal version available.

It appears that 2 or 3 New York “Time Square” camera shops got a FEW units early. But, I don’t trust any of these places.

That Amazon did NOT get a shipment as yet is SCARY.

Amazing that they are discounting the Vivoactive 3 already — within a couple of weeks of availability. This discount has trickled down to all the other Garmin products too — as would have to be the case. Glad I am NOT a Garmin shareholder.

Olympus Discounts Zoom Lenses By $100 Ahead Of OM-D E-M1 Mk II.

by Anura Guruge

$100 discount already appearing on Amazon. Click to access Amazon listing.


$99 for a 40-150mm zoom is pretty attractive even if it is but a ‘middle-of-the-road’ lens.

Interesting move my Olympus. Yep, this could sway some to seriously think about the OM-D E-M1 Mk II.

I have no Olympus (or for that matter any Four-Thirds) lenses. This would be a great start.

Some Very Arresting Olympus Discounts On The Fairly New OM-D E-M5 Mk. II.

by Anura Guruge


I subscribe to e-mails from Olympus and on Monday got two touting the quite compelling Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II at $899. See below. That looked like a decent price.

Then, as is my wont, I happened to check on Amazon.

Ritz Camera is offering a M5 Mk. II with a 40-150mm lens for $999!
That is insane.

I, of course, know of Ritz Camera BUT have never dealt with them,

Wonder IF there is a catch?

HUGE Up To $550 Discounts By Canon On Digital Cameras — Check It Out.

If I was still in the market for a Canon, and the only Canon that even vaguely appeals to me these days being the G5 X, I would be all over this — though interestingly (and logically) the G5 X, being rather hot, is not being discounted. Some great values here. The 7D Mk II bundle and the M3 with EVF & 18-55 mm look real good — and, I just checked, these prices are ALREADY reflected at Amazon.

New & Exciting “VIBES Gourmet Burgers” In Concord Offering 50% Introductory Discount — For 6 Days.

by Anura Guruge


vibes5for10

Click to access offer from the “Concord Monitor”


VIBES Gourmet Burgers” is part owned by a very good friend of ours from Gilford. Quite literally the ‘salt of the earth’. We haven’t been to Concord, atypically, in ages, so we have not had a chance as yet to try this place out. We have heard rave reviews. At a 50% discount these Burgers are at Wendy’s prices. How can YOU lose? I am dying to go and take some pictures. I really need to get out more! But please go and try them out. Cheers. If you see a General Manager named ‘Gary‘ tell him that the brown guy sent you.

This, now that I think about it, would be a GREAT PLACE for the New Hampshire Primary crowd.

I got five of these these 20% off codes as part of the convoluted negotiations that involved me getting a Sony RX100 II (M2) from BuyDig.com last week.

I do NOT need these 5 codes. I actually have a 6th code somewhere and most likely get another next week! Yes, I do a LOT of transactions with BuyDig.com. Plus, if I want $10 off, I will just call and beg for it — and they will give it to me. They know I am a good customer.

So, I will give these 5 codes to you. They told me I could. Friends and family — and anybody who reads this blog, by definition, is a friend.

So IF you want a code just e-mail me. You know how. Hope this helps.
