SD always promoting these at around $9-$10 price point to FP which is not a slick price imo.

I have a couple already but still just picked this one up. Lower than most sale prices I've noticed. Has hold and backlight features.

Who else hates cutesy names for the word link? Please stop doing this people. Please
Base price is $8.97 currently.
I scrolled down to the first promotion for 15% off any TacklifeDirect item and used the code at checkout to get deal.

Save 15% each on ★★ALL Tacklife Products★★ offered by TacklifeDirect when you purchase 1 or more. Enter code YH8FVPL3 at checkout.

I was trying to find the deal for a little bit less ($0.65 less), which I got an email alert from SD for, but that thread went poof!

Good luck and thanks for looking.

I did a search before posting, and no current posts for this one that I could find.
Not even the one that I spoke of in my OP for the same item! LMAO
I would have bought it at $6.97 if possible for sure as that post stated. Of course SD searches are a lot like playing the lottery.

Sad that higher prices get more popularity. Wonder who thinks $7'ish is not a good price (based on voting for this thread), and why not?

$9+ hits FP: https://slickdeals.net/f/10070824-nubee-non-contact-infrared-digital-thermometer-9-35?src=SiteSearch
Maybe this is due to the "It's not what you know, it's who you know." principle? Since I don't work for SD they may get less kickbacks or not know to shill it up.
I put efforts into helping my fellow SD'ers but it falls on deaf ears since it doesn't get immediate upvotes like when mods post same stuff at higher prices. I am guilty as well of skimming for popular deals first glance. I need to take a blue pill. Sigh...

I just got mine and it is not only compact compared to others I own, it's easy to load batteries, works accurately when I did a fast test on ice and room temp counter top. I am satisfied.

BTW Fakespot is mostly about downgrading for questionable reviews that are provided in compensation for discounts or freebies, which do not necessarily reflect upon the items themselves. It has its place. I am very happy I got the lowest priced unit and it works. Good luck. Don't forget Amazon has a free postage paid return for 30 days if defective.

Also look at the "Grade F" Fakespot review for the Nubee in the Front Page deal link from my OP here: https://slickdeals.net/f/10070824-nubee-non-contact-infrared-digital-thermometer-9-35

I received mine today. Cheap plastic feel, as compared the the others I have. It would read 5 to 10F low, thus is going back.

Sorry yours was not calibrated properly. That sucks.
As far as build quality this is on par with all my cheapo's. What price point are your sturdy and hefty ones and any deals for them?

Just received mine as well..it's plastic and cheap feeling but the temperature was dead on for couple of things I measured that I knew what the temperature was. I pointed at the Nest and both of them said 76 so I am happy. For 8 bucks i am pretty happy with it ..

'Nubee' on the side. Was via Slickdeals, I don't remember when. Feels better made, and the coating in a satin-feeling grip. (black handle)

Doing a search for archived deals, it looks like it was $11.68 two years ago.

The Nubee's get posted here on sale all the time. I don't know if it for same as you have,
Does yours use a 9V or 2x AAA? They have different models of that brand. Do you have a pic you could upload?
Maybe a link to it on AMZ if not?

9V. I am not going to link it, because the tread it is on states that some shilling might have been taking place. But, if one searches the forum, it is the Nubee with the black mid-handle and body.

Conclusion I am drawing is that since my post isn't being shilled, not many upvotes. I saw the thread you mentioned ans the user hasn't been active so I bet they were banned. Their user name subtitle says Amazon Shill. I wonder if SD put that there like a Scarlet Letter. lol

I see the one you have and like is around 12 or so on eBay, but afraid to bother posting it since it likely will be neglected like this one. I bet the black part of yours has a rubberized cover which is why it feels better.
