Each morning, as part of the Daily Dealer, I scour the Internet for deals. More often than not, I stumble upon deals that I genuinely think people will like. Today, for example, I found deals on boots and jeans, two clothing items that belong in every American’s closet. Boots and jeans are products that I understand, and I have little to no difficulty telling you about them.

Other times, I come across deals on products that confound me. One of today’s most popular deals is on something called a bluetooth “weather radio.” The thing is made by Eton (a respected radio company) and is the #1 bestseller out of all portable radios. The deal is pretty exceptional: normally $130, this device is on sale today for $50. For perspective, the non-bluetooth version is not on sale and costs $80. The value here seems obvious.

The selling point of this weather radio seems to be that its a must-have for emergency kit and that it is perfect for use in the great outdoors.

Eton FRX5 – All Purpose Weather Alert Radio with Bluetooth on sale for $49.99

Since I’m probably not the best person to explain this product to you, I’ll let the description do the work:

In need of a weather alert radio that is rugged, rechargeable, reliable and uses nature’s power for the latest weather update and news? Look no further because the FRX5 BT can deliver it all and now it also has Bluetooth technology for easy streaming of your music and podcasts anytime and anywhere. The FRX5 BT is solar-powered, splashproof², smartphone and tablet charging, Bluetooth streaming and with S.A.M.E. technology. With the rechargeable lithium battery, super duper solar panel and hand crank power generator, it is an essential for everyday use at home, at work, or in the great outdoors. You now are essentially getting two products in one – a rugged weather radio with alerts and a speaker system where you can stream anything at anytime and anywhere!

Further on in the (rather extensive) Amazon page, it breaks down six functionalities:
  • Traveling Buddy
  • Radio From Any Adventure
  • Stream Your Music
  • On Extra Alert
  • Always Be In Charge
  • Enjoy Life Outdoors

Each of these comes with a paragraph description, and I implore you to read them. Even though you may not actually be interested in a weather radio, at least you will come away learning something new. Sometimes, that’s all you can ask for.
