How this works

Here at Amazon For A Penny we have a system.

Rather than spamming our site with worthless nicknacks and garbage that you don’t want, we scour the web in search of cool little deals that are worth buying. Our finds are all available, in some form, for a penny, and are all things that we think you’ll enjoy. This isn’t random stuff, these items are carefully selected by our staff. We would never host a product on here that we ourselves would not buy. In fact, we own almost everything you see on here.

We also have a simple posting schedule:

Enjoy the site and have fun browsing through our wares.

Also, if you like this site you might want to check out the Cracked article that inspired it. Sadly, most of the items listed have since gone up in price. That’s inflation for you.

If you have any questions be sure to contact us.

Manly Monday – Jock Jams, Volume 4

“I love CDs with continuos mixing, and this is no exception. You’ve got all the coolest pop, dance and rap hits on one collection. The highlight is Going Out Of My Head by one of my favorite artists Fatboy Slim. You also get Everybody (Backstreet’s Back) by Backstreet Boys, One More Night by the amazing Amber, mainstream hip-hop anthems such as Raise The Roof and Gettin’ Jiggy With It, and the collection even goes Old School with House Of Pain’s Jump Around. Who would have thought Quad City DJs could have made it onto yet another party collection? They did though, with the incredibly catchy Space Jam. Another great song is the 2 Unlimited Megamix which contains all of their biggest hits. If you like the music that they play at stadiums, or you just are looking for an instant party, this is definately the CD for you.”

- Amazon reviewer

There was not a bro in America who didn’t own at least one Jock Jams title. While it was tough to decide which one was the best, they are all pretty terrible, we settled on ESPN Presents: Jock Jams, Volume 4. Here’s why:

All in all Jock Jams, Volume 4 is worth a listen. Click here to snag a copy of this great American classic for only a penny. It’s an awesome nostalgia trip.

Food Friday – Shocking Gum

“My kid loves this toy. It shocks enough to scare you but not hurt.”

- Amazon reviewer

Shocking Gum is a timeless prank. It is safe and fun to do. We here at Amazon For A Penny like to mix up our packages of gum so the one of the is randomly the shocker. Then we go around our offices and give each other the shocker. In fact, yesterday our intern got a little carried away and tried to give our building’s mailman the shocker. We had to send him to therapy after that.

If you’re looking for a fun way to pull a prank on your friends and don’t want to go over budget, pick up a pack of shocking gum. It costs a penny and offers hundreds of hours worth of entertainment. Plus it doesn’t hurt the person who pulls out the electrified gum. Of all the pranks we have tried, this one is the safest. It’s even better than the infamous “Snake In A Can,” which is prone to hitting people in the face.

Text Thursday – The Essential Calvin and Hobbes


The Essential Calvin and Hobbes

The Essential Calvin and Hobbes

The Essential Calvin and Hobbes

“Watterson’s talent is pretty hard to get over. What’s the big idea, making a cartoon so consistently funny, explosively creative and accessibly brilliant that no other cartoonist could ever hope to match wits? When I saw the first Calvin strips in my paper several years ago, I knew it was something special. Here’s a little kid more clever than most adults, whose stuffed friend comes to life and has philosophical debates with him while they careen down a gully in a wagon.”

- Amazon reviewer

The Essential Calvin and Hobbes was a huge part of our childhoods. We used to sit around and read strips for hours at a time. In fact, we actually owned every single Calvin and Hobbes book that was ever released. They were all fantastic. If you’ve never read the strip before, in which case we congratulate you for just time traveling from 1876 and immediately logging onto Amazon For A Penny, you’ll be in for a treat.

The Essential Calvin and Hobbes #2

The fact that you can buy a Calvin and Hobbes book for only a penny has left us flabbergasted. It is truly a testament to the age in which we live. Pretty soon they’ll be building flying cars and robot butlers. It’s a glorious time to be alive.

Anyway, if you like to laugh and you like to think, you’ll love Calvin and Hobbes. The stories as both witty and intelligent. There’s plenty of reflection and philosophy mixed into tales of cloning, transmogrification, space exploration, and other great stuff. As far as newspaper comics go, this one is one of the all time best.

Go dig around your couch cushions and trade in your Bitcoins, because you’re going to need to cough up a penny for this wonderful collection. Click here to snag one of the greatest comics of all time at a price that is insanely low.*

* Upon seeing the price tag two of our interns had to be institutionalized. They literally went crazy from the penny cost. It was too good a bargain for them to handle.

Hammer Gel 5oz Flask

Womanly Wednesday – Hammer Gel 5oz Flask

“I’d rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.”

- Dorothy Parker

This Hammer Gel 5oz Flask is the perfect device for drinking some delicious and nutritious sports drinks. Designed for consuming “power gel,” which is like a healthy version of maple syrup that you drink, the flask is great for staying healthy and getting in touch with you body. For that reason, we have elected the Hammer Gel 5oz Flask to be our Womanly Wednesday pick of the day…

Hammer Gel 5oz Flask #2

In all seriousness

Recent experiments at our private Amazon For A Penny research facility have unveiled the fact that certain alcoholic beverages can be stored within this wonderful flask. Color us shocked, but the Hammer Gel 5oz Flask is good for storing more than just our daily honey water and nutmeg power syrup. In fact, it is actually a great tool for smuggling drinks into venues where alcohol is either overpriced or not sold at all.

On top of being a good container to store liquor, this flask has the added benefit of being discrete. Much like the infamous Tampon Flask, perfect for sneaking a Bloody Mary, this unit won’t draw any suspicion. In fact, power gel is so horrible that we doubt anyone will even want to try whatever is in you flask. They’ll just assume that you enjoy drinking sugar water like that one space bug guy from Men In Black.

The Hammer Gel 5oz Flask is the perfect tool for today’s modern alcoholic. If you’re a women who is looking for a clever way to get her drink on you’ll love this device. Click here to score a penny flask. Even if the bouncer takes this away from you, you aren’t out anything.

Toys Tuesday – Random Hot Wheels Cars (Mystery Machine)

“… And I would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn’t for you meddling kids.”

- Every Scooby-Doo! villain

The Scooby-Doo! Mystery Machine is the only dirty hippie van piloted by delinquent teenagers that we endorse. The only reason that we here at Amazon For A Penny even like this vehicle is because of the fact that we can send it down or track and imagine an incredibly high Scooby and Shaggy flip out as the van careens around corners and jumps huge gaps.

Chick here if you want to get the same level of sadistic joy that we do.

Random Hot Wheels Cars Mars Rover

Toys Tuesday – Random Hot Wheels Cars (Mars Rover Curiosity)

“A cool replica of curiosity rover. The attention to detail isn’t what you used to get in the old space sets but not enough to not add it to your collection.”

- Amazon reviewer

A Mars Rover Curiosity is something that we’ve been waiting for for a long time. We’re pleased to announce that it’s just as awesome as we had imagined. While we’re too nerdy to send it down our “Tunnel of Doom” course, we do like to admire it. It’s also the closest that we’ll ever come to operating a space rover.

Angry Birds and Hot Wheels is like a deadly combination of two of the greatest kids activities. It’s cars and a popular game, why no one thought of this when we were growing up is baffling.

Food Friday – Marshmallow Peeps (Yellow Chicks)

“I needed to give my horse some pills. She is an adopted wild mustang and very suspicious of anything new that I offer her. Someone said ‘Put the pill in a peep!’ It sounded like an idea worth trying, so I placed the order and got the peeps in a few days. I put the pill in a peep. After much sniffing and thinking about it, my mare finally took the peep, pill and all. However, it was like a dog eating peanut butter! She finally gave up and spit out the squashed peep (and of course, the pill). But a happy ending: I offered the peeps to my donkeys and the gobbled them up with no problem at all!”

- Amazon reviewer

Nothing says Easter like a pack of Marshmallow Peeps. The company’s yellow chicks are our personal favorite. They are a classic and take us back to our awesome childhoods when we hunted for eggs and threw up from eating too many chocolate rabbits. Those were some fantastic times.

Now you can bring this Easter legacy to your family, or just eat the Peeps on your own, with this wonderful pack of yellow chicks. It uses the company’s world famous marshmallow and sugar recipe to make a snack that’s as timeless as it is unhealthy. While we usually like to eat clean with our kangaroo jerk and natural cola, Easter is an exception. We just love Peeps too much to remove them from our holiday tradition.

Special bonus: Peeps in Microwave

On top of being a great snack, these Peep yellow chicks have a few other uses. Our inner kids still love to play around with them and put them in the microwave. It’s a sight to behold as they swell up to gargantuan proportions.

If you want some great snacks and an afternoon of radioactive fun, you could do a lot worse than ordering a carton of Marshmallow Peeps. Simply click here to snag a box. There’s nothing better than chowing down on a penny carton of yellow chick Peeps when Easter morning rolls around.


Text Thursday – Argentine Deadline Phoenix Force #1


Argentine Deadline Phoenix Force

Argentine Deadline Phoenix Force

Text Thursday – Argentine Deadline Phoenix Force #1

The terrorists demanded seven million dollars, and for every day it wasn’t paid they threatened to cut off the head of a captive. But blinded by greed and their lust for blood, they overlooked the real threat – Phoenix Force!

- Book description

Argentine Deadline Phoenix Force #1 )An Executioner Series) is a campy men’s adventure novel from 1982. It’s basically like a prose version of Commando or Rambo. While it isn’t great literature, it is a fun read from a bygone era where men were men and non-Americans were commie scumbags who needed some extra lead in their diet. If you like your action in huge doses and accompanied by a lot of one liners and cheesy dialogue, you’ll love this book.

Although we here at Amazon For A Penny personally enjoy some of the later Phoenix Force more than this one, Argentine Deadline makes for a solid introduction. It’s the first book and gives the reader a pretty good idea of what’s in store. Packed with heroes like demolitions exert Gary Manning, super cop Calvin James, and the fearless David McCarter; Phoenix Force is always ready to fight communists and protect America.

Schooled in guerilla warfare, equipped with the latest lethal hardware, Phoenix Force battles the powers of darkness in an endless crusade for freedom, justice, and the rights of the individual.”

If you want some fun communist killing action, Argentine Deadline Phoenix Force #1 is perfect for you. The action is intense and the story is quirky. Like we said earlier, this is the prose version of an 80′s action movie.

Phoenix Force

While you can buy Argentine Deadline Phoenix Force #1 if you click here, we recommend that you also check out some other great penny pulps. Created, The Destroyer is free on Kindle, and several of the StonyMan books are also only a penny. Additionally, How to Write Action Adventure Novels can be had for three bucks. It’s a great book that we’ve gotten a lot of use out of.

Argentine Deadline Phoenix Force #1 is worth a read. It’s light pulpy fun from a bygone era where rabidly patriotic commandos squared off against terrorists and communists. If you like Rambo you’ll enjoy this.
