Support TKP on Amazon Prime Day

Shop at Amazon? There's a one-step way to help TKP out in the process.

For those of you who shop at, and want to support The Key Play, TKP has an affiliate account setup up with Amazon. In less technical terms, when you use TKP's affiliate link to buy something from Amazon, The Key Play gets a (small) cut of the sale.

Today is Prime Day, which is an opportunity to remind the community at-large of this simple way to help TKP.

This is TKP's affiliate link: Click it, then shop at Amazon. That's it. Boom!

It can be tedious to click a link each time you shop, and if you're a Chrome user, the Philanthropist extension removes the effort.

  1. Install the Philanthropist extension.
  2. Use TKP's Amazon affiliate ID: thkepl-20.

When you shop at Amazon, the green top hat indicates purchases you make will support TKP.

Thank you for your support!



I learned something new today with the philanthropist extension - thanks for sharing that piece, guys! I have set that up!

Is there a way to see how much one has contributed with philanthropist?

They'll really get after ya

Now, Cole, when you shift the gear and that little needle on the tach goes into the red and reads 9000 RPMs, that's bad!

Thank you for reminding me it was prime day, now I need to figure out what stuff I need to buy.

edit: Weird that it doesn't officially start until 3pm EST, feel like that doesn't make a lot of sense? Has it always been like that?

It's supposed to be 36 hours this time, so it starts at noon Pacific (where they're headquartered), and then run all day tomorrow.

Done! MrsO won't appreciate the new A/V equipment, but I'll tell her it was for a good cause

Anyone finding any actual good deals? Every time I have looked on Prime Day in the past it's just filled with a bunch of inventory cleaning of junk.

Lots of good deals on the Fire TV equipment (half off Fire stick and 4K). The rest of the deals will show up around 3:00 EST

Three years ago (wow, having a weird moment about how quickly it's gone by, excuse me) right before I started my career in the real world, I used Prime Day to get a few really good deals on a lot of electronics for my apartment, such as a TV, Sound Bar, etc. Most of prime day is garbage but I usually find at least one thing worth buying with a good deal, even if it's something as small as a new beard trimmer.

I just got a new beard trimmer and also some of those athletic pants with the zippered and tapered ankles. Each item was in my mind as something I wanted at the right price point, and ~35% off total on Prime day was that price point. Coupled with credit cards rewards redeemed in amazon credit, and it was zero dollars out of pocket beyond the opportunity cost.

I bought a bunch of parts for a new computer I'm building. Got some decent discounts but nothing groundbreaking.

I haven't really found anything good. Most of the stuff is like 5% less than elsewhere or out of date electronics. Not to mention the deals page is awful to browse.

I'm seeing better deals at all of the other stores that are trying to undercut Prime Day.

Eh, nothing specific. Mainly seeing links to Wal-Mart and Target and the like for stuff like blu-rays.

The only one I was interested enough to try to jump on was a disc+digital deal for the Back to the Future trilogy at Vudu. It was $10, which would have automatically put the digital copies in my Vudu account, and then I still would have gotten the blu-ray set complete with another digital code inside (which would have made a great gift). Alas, it sold out before I could jump on it.

I always use the TKP link when buying from Amazon, but not buying anything now. I thought we might buy stuff for the youngest going to college, but not seeing deals on anything on his list.
