    Amazon Prime Day is a big deal, with big savings to take advantage of. The mid-summer sales event began in 2015, and is now one of the retailer’s biggest shopping days of the year. This year, Prime Day will fall on July 17th, but will start as early as noon Pacific time on the 16th. This means we will see a record-breaking 36 hours of deals!

    In 2017, the deals lasted only 30 hours, and there was a total of $2.41 billion in sales by price-conscious consumers, surpassing sales totals for the previous Black Friday or Cyber Monday! If each of the 100 million Prime subscribers bought something, that would be about $24 spent per person.

    Slickdeals wants to help you to hack the available sales so you can spend less on the things that you want. Wondering what deals to look out for this year and how you can prepare? Our guide will tell you what you need to know.

    Looking forward to buying a lot of stupid shit I don't need and will rarely use
     
  4. My credit card is ready. I haven't bought much of anything on Prime Day the last two years though. Mostly little shit that costs under $20. Will probably look to get a DAC with adjustable volume to connect to my bluetooth transmitter for my TV so I can control the volume for the AirPods.

  24. I'll buy it off you if the price is right. I need an Amazon product page for it though so I know what I am potentially getting.

    Does anyone know if Amazon does price change refunds?

    I've got a feeling the kitchen appliance I bought last week is going to be offered at a discount on Prime Day. Prime Day will be within the 30 days return window, so at worst I just buy the cheaper one and return it under my more expensive order number. However, it'd be nice if i didn't have to jump through hoops to accomplish this.

    Oh....go check out the price of stuff you want now.

    Amazon Jack's up the price the day before the sale to make it appear as if the discount is larger than it really is.

    I love the posters that get all cunty about Prime Day. Maybe you’re looking for something specific or maybe something completely rando. Prime Day is fun, maybe you buy a fire stick or a chef’s hat or a ukulele. Quit being Debbie Downers because the Samsung 88” QLED TV isn’t on sale for 500 bucks
