Prime Day starts tomorrow. Should you care?


Prime Day(s) start tomorrow. If you’re considering any of the deals, be aware that the Prime Day savings generally are what you’re looking at as standard pricing a couple of months down the road. There are a few doorbuster savings, but do some research and remember third parties beat Amazon all the time. Amazon’s just got a major name advantage.

You can check historical pricing over at places like CamelCamelCamel (no account or extension required,) where you get to watch the prices drop, and mysteriously jump up $50-$100 a couple of weeks before a sale:

Should be noted the above picture is for illustrative purposes only – no idea what’s up with pricing on this product or if it’s on sale on Prime Day.

This is the time when all of the companies out there are hell bent on getting their name out.

From my inbox looks like a few of the brands I deal with on a regular basis will be having some sales tomorrow. XGIMI, Roborock, Sense, DreameBot, ILIFE. I don’t know what’s particularly on sale at the moment but those are some of my choices for fairly decent products.

Alexa and Amazon products will probably enjoy steep discounts.

Someone in your timeline will post that this day Optimus Prime should be remembered.

Prime Day – still not as exciting as Costco’s savings to me.
