Although it may be too late to get free shipping and receive your Amazon goodies by Christmas, it's never too late to save some serious dough on things you crave.
Want a good way to get the most out of your Amazon gift card? Try Amazon's Gold Box Lightning Deals. Every hour on the hour, Amazon releases another item for sale at a seriously discounted price.
You'll never know what item is up next, and that's part of the fun of it. But Amazon does give you a little hint on what it could be to pique your interest so you return in an hour . . . with that gift card in hand! Yesterday I got SingStar Abba for $15 bucks (62 percent off the sticker price), which is totally going to take my SingStar New Year's Eve party to another level.
