Amazon Prime Day is set for Tuesday, July 12th and Amazon is promising that it’s going to be way bigger and better than last year! This will be welcome improvement over last year when the “good stuff” was hard to find and lots of the deals were on weird products no one wanted or needed. Remember all the chefs hats on sale and the #PrimeDayFail hashtag all over Twitter? Although…I did snag an incredible deal on my Instant Pot electric pressure cooker! I use it so often that it’s hard to imagine I’ve only had it for a year now!
Anyway, according to Amazon, there will be almost twice as many TV deals as Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined…plus huge sales and discounts on toys and other popular product categories as well. There’s also talk about deals on Amazon Echo, Kindle Unlimited and more…so it’s worth being prepared.
I’m the unfortunate position of having to appear for Jury Duty selection on Tuesday, which makes me so sad because there’s nothing I love more than snagging an amazing deal, and I’m having major FOMO over the whole situation, but I wanted to post ahead of time because I don’t want you missing out as well!
