I'm not much of an Amazon shopper. In fact, I'm not much of an online shopper. However, I do love good bargains. Therefore, when Amazon announced Prime Day I was excited! 

Yesterday, Amazon had a huge one day only sale. It was advertised that Prime members would be able to take advantage of awesome deals! Prime Day was going to be the next Black Friday. The deals online would be equal if not better than Black Friday. 

All this Prime Day hype had me excited!!! I became a girl with a mission. 
Prime Day would be the perfect opportunity to jump start my Christmas shopping. 

Yesterday I was ready to shop. First thing in the morning, I checked Amazon's website. After a few minutes of looking at all the bargains I ended up with one purchase. 

Now don't get me wrong, this a good deal. Nivea Body Wash is expensive, and I got 3 bottles for the price of one. But these aren't the type of deals I was expecting. In my mind, Black Friday equals cheap electronics. Not at Amazon! Instead, Prime Day ended up being a huge garage sale. 

Overall, it was a disappointing shopping experience. Not only were the deals/products lame, but it's obvious I fell for Amazon's huge marketing scam. Frustrating! I have a degree in Marketing!! I know better than this, and yet I fell for Amazon's plan. 

The good news is I only fell for half of Anazon's plan. I did not pay $99 to subscribe to Amazon Prime; which was Amazon's main goal. I was just a sucker who wasted time looking for a good deal.

Sorry you got conned. Hugs! I heard that others were upset that they waited all day at the computer for not much of anything. I'm not sure how that was supposed to boost numbers, but anyway.

Glad you got a good deal on your body wash.

When I first checked it out, I was like... am I crazy, or is this a super lame sale? Then I realized everyone else had the same though. :) Glad you got some body wash, though!

Ann- I was the same way. Yesterday, I read many articles about people being disappointed. It made me feel better.
