During Amazon Prime Day 2020, there are plenty of sales you’ll want to partake in, from deals for Nintendo Switch to smart TVs and board games. However, while we tend to highlight some of the very best deals for Prime Day, it’s time to look at some of the most absurd things on sale.
Across Amazon, Best Buy, Target, and other retailers, there are plenty of discounted items you probably didn’t know existed until today or things on sale that should have been discontinued years ago. These are all items that will have you scratching your heads–right before you sincerely say to yourself, “I need this, right?”
FIFA 17 for Xbox One
$15 (was $30)
I am not much of a FIFA player, but I know it has a tremendous global appeal. Every year, EA Sports pumps out another one of these games, and people around the world pick it up. Discounting a previous year’s game is par for the course when the latest addition has been released (FIFA 21 came out October 6), but discounting a game from four years ago when the previous two years’ games are just a few dollars more, non-Prime Day priced, is a bit silly. But hey, if you want to pick up a game way out of date, go nuts.
Hurry up though, this hot, hot deal on an old, old game ends on Wednesday, October 14!
Gifts for Men Dad Husband
$30 (was $37)
You may be a little confused about the title of this product, and that’s because it was so long, it had to be cut down. This Amazon product is actually called “Gifts for Men Dad Husband, Survival Gear and Equipment 12 in 1, Christmas Stocking Stuffers, Fishing Hunting Birthday Gifts Ideas for Him Boyfriend Teen Boy, Cool Gadget, Camping Survival Kit.”
As a man dad husband myself, I enjoy many tools, all of which are located in my toolbox, But if I’m on the go, all I really need are a flathead and Phillips screwdrivers, pliers, wire cutters, and a hammer. However, Gifts for Men Dad Husband is really focused on the survivalist. It’s about the man dad husband who wants to escape his rigorous day-to-day life by spending time getting back to nature forest woods, away from civilization city humanity.
Hover-1 Raptor Hoverboard Buggy Attachment with LED Fog Blasters and Sound Effects
$70 (was $100)
Do you have an undying need for younger people to accept you, so you buy the coolest tech for teens, but you’re incredibly uncoordinated? Don’t worry, Hover-1 has something for you that will make all the kids yell, “That person in their 30s is the most swag-fleek!” The Raptor Hoverboard Buggy Attachment–a phrase no one should ever have to write–allows you to ride your hoverboard without the fear of falling off and breaking an arm. Plus, it has LED lights, fog blasters, and makes sound effects. Celebrate your Third Life Crisis in style!
The Floor is Lava!
$13 (was $17)
There are a few childhood games that can be played for the low price of $0: hide and seek, tag, heads-up 7-up, and the floor is lava. However, Endless Games has found a way to make the floor is lava into a thing you pay for. Instead of jumping from one piece of furniture to another, you jump on foam tiles. There’s also action cards that tell you to do things, like “touch your toes.” Just do yourselves a favor and play the game for free, then watch the game show of the same name on Netflix.
Kidzone DIY Number 6V Kids Toy Electric Ride On Bumper Car
$150 (was $400)
Someone has taken a seat to help infants sit up straight and put some remotely-controlled wheels and fancy lights on it. While it comes in a wide array of colors, what the Kidzone Bumper Car doesn’t want you to know is that electric ride-on full cars cost around $150 or are less. It just seems like this Bumper Car is mere seconds away from tipping over. And just as a side note, anyone else find it super-weird that the title of the toy highlights the fact you have to put the number on the car yourself?
Mr. Sketch Chiseled Tip Marker
$10 (was $13)
There is just something wonderfully nostalgic about markers that very vaguely smell like fruit. And something that never pops up in most of our minds is the ability to relive the moments when it was ok to sniff the markers. What is really weird about these markers are some of the smells. Aside from the traditional ones like cherry and grape, there are some ones that are really bizarre: nacho cheese, smoky cinnamon rocket fuel (cinnamon alone is already a smell), rotten melon alien ooze, and licorice. Come on, black licorice is gross.
RENPHO Leg Massager
$66 (was $90)
For many people, a nice, long massage is the best way to wind down after being on your feet all day. However, with the RENPHO Leg Massager, you get to combine that with cosplaying as Robocop on the lower half of your body. It uses air to inflate the bags wrapped around your legs, so it’s probably also exceptionally loud. But hey, at least you’re comfortable, you cybernetic cop with a -30 roll to stealth.
20 Two-Way Walkie Talkies
$164 (was $215)
There is no denying that walkie talkies are pretty cool. And of course, you’re going to need two of them to talk to someone else. However, this Amazon Prime Day deal comes with 20, so you’ll have to find 19 friends to hand these out to. Obviously, this pack is geared toward construction workers or other jobs where many people need to keep in constant contact with each other but can’t use computers. It’s just bizarre to see this promoted in one of the electronic sections.
