As we noted yesterday, today is Amazon Prime Day 2016. It’s a lot like Black Friday, only in the middle of the summer for some reason and exclusively for Amazon Prime members (Not a member? Sign-up here for free.). But the idea here is that Amazon is slashing the prices on thousands of products to get you to shop, because, shopping. Seriously, I don’t get the point other than Amazon seems to think we need a mid-year Black Friday to blow more money on fun stuff. I don’t have issues with that, it’s just odd. Shopping, though!
Amazon did give us a preview of what to expect in terms of Amazon Prime Day deals and now we get to actually browse through them all and decide if they are worth the trouble. Anything good? Here are some that are sticking out at the moment.
