On Sale: Executive Editions of Satellit and Traveler III

Many thanks to SWLing Post reader, Troy Riedel, who writes:

“This [Executive series] sale has been going on since 18 March (and Amazon now lists that it will end in “5 days”):”

Many thanks for the tip, Troy!

Those are both great prices: the Traveler for $47.04 and the Satellit for $156.69 shipped.

Timing is great as I’ve had a number of readers ask about purchasing the Satellit lately.

Sony ICF-SW7600GR: New and open box units on sale via Blinq

SWLing Post readers know that I’m a big fan of the, now discontinued, Sony ICF-SW7600GR shortwave portable. I try to post ‘7600GR deals when I find them and they’re beginning to become more scarce as retailer inventory depletes.

This weekend, I found another deal via Blinq/Amazon.

They have a number of new ICF-SW7600GRs for $138.39 and about 3 (at time of posting) listed as “Open Box” for $108.39.

I’ve bought a number of items via Blinq (directly and through Amazon) in the past and found that the retailer is not only reliable but has a very generous return policy if you’re not satisfied. You can buy from them directly or through Amazon with confidence.

Tom notes decrease in price of Grundig Satellit 750 on Amazon

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Tom Ally, who writes:

[Grundig/Eton] radios are going back down in price. [This] isn’t the lowest price I have seen for the Grundig Satellit 750, but now is a good time to get this model if you don’t have it as that is not a bad price!

Thanks for the tip, Tom! $296.99 US shipped is indeed a good price. Most retailer list them well into the $300 price range at time of posting.

Post Readers: Do you own the ‘750? Please comment on its performance.

Holiday Deals: Open Box Sony ICF-SW7600GR for $113 via Amazon/Blinq

Traveling with my Sony ICF-SW7600GR in Taos, New Mexico

Regular SWLing Post readers know that I’m a big fan of the, now discontinued, Sony ICF-SW7600GR shortwave portable. Recently, I even wrote a post about finding some of the remaining units online.

This morning, I noticed that Amazon.com has some “Used – Like New” ‘7600GRs available via the seller Blinq for $113.39 shipped. At first, I didn’t notice the deal because it’s buried in the page: simply go to the Amazon product page, scroll down and click on “Used & new from $113.39 & FREE shipping” on the right side of the page. There, you’ll see the current offerings, if still available:

icf-7600gr-amazon

Since this offering is available via Blinq, I then searched the Blinq.com website and found the same deal:

blinq-sony-icf-sw7600gr

 

I’ve bought a number of items via Blinq (directly and through Amazon) in the past and found that the retailer is not only reliable but has a very generous return policy if you’re not satisfied. You can buy from them with confidence.

Each time a ‘7600GR deal pops up, I’m very tempted to bite the bullet. I have two working units already though–“Coals to Newcastle” as they say!
