- $10 off $50 on Open-Box and Used Products
Save $10 on your first order of $50 or more when using code WD1STTIME in the Amazon Warehouse Deals section.
Since most products sold in the Warehouse have a short warranty period, and since most have been previously used then re-shipped, beware of buying electronics.
Anything with moving parts, such as Blu-Ray Players, hard drives, and printers are more likely to break unless well packaged and taken care of.
Many products in the Warehouse come with little warranty, so beware of the potential hassles.

- Cards Against Humanity Game for Adults for $20 (expired)
Cards Against Humanity is on sale for $20 through tonight.
It is an adult board game meant for parties of 4 or more.
Gameplay can get raunchy, nonsensical, and weird.
Many people love this game, as you can see by reading the very positive Amazon reviews.
However not everyone will love it.
Some sensitive people may find it offensive, and some people looking to be creative (such as this reviewer) may be disappointed.
That being said, if you have played this game at a friend's house and want it for yourself, this is a pretty good deal at $20.

- Manduka Pro Yoga Mat $78
Manduka Pro Yoga Mat in black for $78 today.
We own this mat.
It is one of the better mats available, and normally goes for around $100.
- Inteset Universal Remote Control for Streaming Devices $25
Many people (including ourselves) are using less cable, satellite, and broadcast TV, and more streaming media services.
Buy a Roku, an Amazon Fire Stick, or a Google Chromecast, and you can sign up for Hulu, Netflix, CBS, and many other streaming video services.
We purchased a Inteset Universal Remote Control for $25 a few weeks ago, and love it.
Like most universal remote controls, this is designed to control up to 4 devices, and is fairly easy to program.
However the Inteset is one of the only remotes that can control streaming media devices (Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Xbox One, Western Digital TV Live, etc) as well as a TV and Receiver, and is priced below $50.
They also just released an IR Repeater/Extender for $26, for controlling your devices behind a cabinet or wall.
For comparison, a Logitech Harmony Smart Control can control the same devices as the Inteset (8 devices instead of 4), but costs much more than the Inteset.
Granted the Logitech also includes an app, but these days, your mobile phone and tablet may give you the same home control features using a Roomie app.
While more people switch from cable TV to streaming services, it is good to see a new affordable universal remote controls compatible with streaming devices.
If you are looking for a remote control for your streaming devices, Receiver, and television, the Inteset might be a hot deal for you.

That being said, this still is a great deal if you are looking for a good computer mouse at a good price.

- Gunnar Computer Glasses for $40
Gunnar Optiks Glasses for $40 each.
They usually sell for around $100 each.
They can help reduce eyestrain when staring at a computer screen.
We tried one for a few years, and noticed headaches disappeared after a long day in front of a computer screen.
Beware that these are meant for indoor use only, and can damage your eyes if used in the sunlight.
Eyestrain is a serious issue, because it can cause serious damage to your eyes.
Gunnar eyewear can help, but there are other things you can do too.
Reducing the brightness on your screens and devices, and increasing the amount of ambient light in the room can be a huge help.
Do not stare at a bright screen (monitor, tablet, or phone) in the dark, it can cause the same irritation as starting at a light bulb.
If your screens have glare (reflective light), especially tablets and phones made of highly-reflective glass, re-position them.
Also, stand up from your desk and look at objects far away at least one per hour to exercise your eyes, preventing focusing fatigue.
Here is an article outlining the steps you can take.
