#Trending-Mon 7/16/18: Amazon Prime Day Is Today

Amazon Prime Day Is Today . . . Will It Be Disappointing Yet Again?

 

Stores would LOVE it if there could be a second Black Friday . . . preferably without all the trampling, but hey, gotta crack some eggs to make an omelet. 

  

And four years ago, Amazon tried to get people to go into a second consumer frenzy, by establishing Amazon Prime Day in mid-July.

  

Well . . . today is the fourth-annual Prime Day.  It starts at 3:00 P.M. Eastern and runs through midnight tomorrow.

  

And even though nine out of 10 people say they shop on Amazon . . . people aren't super pumped about Prime Day.  Mainly because the deals have always been kind of disappointing.

  

According to a new survey, only 60% of people say they're even going to hop on Amazon today to check out the deals.  So hey, more stuff available for you, I guess.

  

If you ARE going to shop on Prime Day, odds are the best deals you'll find will be on . . . stuff Amazon makes.  That means things like Kindles, Alexa devices, and tablets . . . those should get pretty solid discounts.
