New Amazon Dash Wand with ALEXA

Before I start my review, I want to post some tips

1.) $20 Credit – This is NOT a gift card.. This is a promotional credit that shows up if and when you buy eligible products.. The nice thing about the “Wand” credit is that it will show up on MOST items sold by Amazon

2.) As stated in the description THIS DOES NOT play music.. BUT it is good for other things in the kitchen. Think of it as a “Mini” Alexa without all the expensive features

3.) The main purpos of this is a barcode scanner! Yes, that’s true BUT now that it includes ALEXA for simple features which I think is a great plus!

1.) Essentially Free
2.) The Alexa features are nice! But I purchased this as a barcode scanner to help me reorder stuff
3.) I find the Amazon prices on stuff I buy to be comparable to other stores.. I know some folks complain about high prices and who knows what they are buying.. I also know some stuff on Amazon is expensive BUT for the stuff I buy, it’s not
4.) Makes it easy to build a shopping list!
5.) Good battery life

Test Purchase:  Sun Bum Shampoo Normal cost everywhere else is $17.99.. Amazon cost after scanning barcode was $17.99 but free because I used my $20 credit..  So yeah! Price is fine!

Overall: I will update this more as I use it more.. Mine just arrived but so far I am impressed with it

Outdoors Portable Lightweight Single & Double Camping Hammocks with Stretch Resistant Parachute Nylon Ropes and Steel Carabiners for Backpacking, Travel, Beach, Hiking, Yard

Background: I love hammocks an own all the major and popular brands (ENO, Grand Trunk, Bear Butt, Chill Gorilla, Kammok, and others).. I only recommend hammocks and gear that WILL NOT FAIL YOU while being used outdoors!! I have had gear fail on the AT (Appalachian Trail) and it is not fun so all gear I recommend will last!

Short Review: Awesome and WELL BUILT hammock that includes straps! The straps that are included are similar to the Grand Trunk Tree Slings!! Basically its a “Hybrid” rope/strap combo that still protects the trees and allows easy hanging!! The materials of this hammock are the same of the big boys so the hammock should last for a very long time! It is a very comfortable hammock!!

1.) Includes Straps – Straps not only make it easy to hang the hammock but they also make hammocks safer for the user and for the trees! Keep in mind, a lot of campsites now require some sort of “Tree” strap and the included straps with this hammock will work out fine!!

2.) Holds OVER 400 pounds!

3.) Awesome HIGH QUALITY materials!!

4.) Straps fit inside stuff sack with hammock!

5.) Durable Carabineers

6.) Easy to hang


Overall: I highly recommend this hammock! its a great deal and a great way to save money VS some of the others on the market.. Don’t get me wrong! I love ENO hammocks and love the expensive hammocks BUT not everyone can afford them.. This hammock by PolarBear will give you a hammock that is JUST AS WELL MADE for a much lower cost!! I highly recommend it
