Default Amazon Prime Day sale

Today is the 20 birthday of Amazon. To celebrate the are having a sale billed as bigger than Black Friday. In order to compete Target and Walmart are having their own sales. Amazon's come with free 2 day shipping. One of the deals I saw mentioned was a 40" TV for $140. 40% off select food and beverage. Don't have Amazon Prime? They have a 30 day free trial that will get you the free shipping as well as all of their other services. I am not doing any mega deals like that but everything in my store is 5% off today. The link to my store is www.amazon.com/shops/Yancey.

OK, I got my Halloween candy done. I just got four 1# retail boxes (18 units in each box) of Reese's Pieces that will be chill shipped overnight to me for $6.85! I'm off to see what other deals i can find.

Thanks for the heads up Yancy. I took advantage but did not get the free shipping cause what I ordered came from a different company but there was a great discount.
P.S. I have been waiting for this item to go on sale for over two years.

Pretty much what I was thinking. Decent deals on some small ticket items but nothing on the level of Black Friday like they led you to believe.

And if you're like me and you've been waiting on buying a PS4, this is a pretty decent deal when you consider what you're getting and we don't know when there will be a price drop. $400 for a 500GB PS4 with The Witcher and Arkham Knight plus a year of PS Plus:

Walmart absolutely smashed Amazon today in sales. Along with their price match, Walmart actually had stuff people wanted to buy, not one off garage sale crap.

Yes, and I got the last one at that price. It is backup to $25ish now. Some of my things are selling well too. I have 100 items in receiving and am working on another 100 to go out later today or tomorrow.

I got some stuff, but there were just WAAAAAY to many things to go through. Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but my computer was awful slow.

Wish I had snagged that "Modernist Cookbook At Home" for like $48 instead of $105, I'd read that like a novel instead of use it like a cookbook, interesting stuff.

Good deal on the $75 in gift cards giving you a $10 credit though.

I had a good sales day even though I only gave a 5% discount. Overall AZ sales broke a record. Some were disappointed at the lack of focus on tech but most of AZ's sales are in books, household, grocery, etc. They are a retail company more than a tech one.

I ended up shipping out 4 boxes weighing 140# and comprising 150 items this afternoon to feed the beast. New inventory every week!

Amazon Prime Day was a bust overall...more like a "warehouse cleanout garage sale" than anything.

At any rate, that doesn't make me love Amazon any less. No one does customer service like they do.

This past Sunday I ordered a bluetooth stereo around 10:30pm to replace mine that had stopped taking a charge. As I left for work Monday morning at 7am, I noticed the package on my doorstep. Same day delivery is a crazy unnecessary perk but this was unbelievable.

Yeah, or the Plant City (technically Lakeland) warehouse.

...but I can understand Same Day because I order during day when they are running trucks and I get it that day also.

Ordering at 10:30pm at night and having it before day breaks is just amazing.

That was one deal I really could've used. It would've been serendipitous (probably never heard that word applied to tupperware) perfect timing since all ours had been developing cracks, except they sold out probably before I even looked!
