I’ll admit it, I am absolutely addicted to Amazon. It has become a running joke at my house that a package will be at my door every day. From protein supplements, to computer glare-reducing glasses, to new underwear, I have turned to Amazon for almost everything in my daily life. Before I know it, I will probably be buying my milk and bananas on Amazon. I fought against spending 100 dollars to get a year’s subscription to Amazon Prime almost every day before caving in. And now that I have that guarantee of two-day delivery, my useless spending has reached an all-time high.
So, it comes as no surprise that I have been anticipating Amazon Prime Day more than Christmas. Lightning deals all day that will show up at my door in two days? Sign me up! As soon as I woke up, I began the day long process of watching the deals. Almost every half hour, Amazon unveiled new deals. Sadly, the disappointment across my face could be seen a mile away. Amazon did not have anything GOOD to sell.
And I was not the only one who felt this way. Thousands of users took to Facebook and Twitter to voice their displeasure about the sale. In fact, #PrimeDayFail has been the most popular hash tag as of today. Gizmondo did us the favor of gathering some great user quotes. Here are a few:
“At least on Black Friday you can go to the store and punch someone to get the items you want. #PrimeDayFail”
Needless to say, after all of the stuff I have bought on Amazon over the years, July 15th was a major letdown! Hopefully Amazon will have decent stuff for the next go-round.
