Amazon Prime (Day)

Postby legitimatebeef » Tue Jul 11, 2017 10:13 am

What the fuck is this gay shit? I'm supposed to get all titillated over this? Maybe I am not looking in the right places but to me it looks like a bunch of overstock crap at marginally reduced prices, all clumped together to give an impression of something special going on. I think this is like the retail equivalent of the "cheerleader effect".

Of course if anyone has any leads on some truly great bargain, please share. I am all ears. :cmon

Also am I alone in thinking that Amazon as a company ought to calm the fuck down for a minute or two. Jesus Christ.

"Amazon Prime" brand snack mix. Now they are fucking with us, just to see if anyone is paying actual attention.

Don't even get me started on those "Amazon Dash" buttons. I want to bareknuckle box the people who approved that crap.

I'm not an expert in these things but $14.99 for a belgian waffle maker seems like a goddamn steal.

lol I agree.

I did get some samsonite luggage this morning because my wife and I were needing some before our trip to Florida in October. So we specifically waited for prime day to see if we could find a deal. Paid $129 for the pair of suit cases when you can get them at BJ's for $159. So not a massive deal but good enough that we pulled the trigger on something we already needed.

But I agree mostly over stocked junk and marketing hysteria.

Pulled pork shredders, 1 pair for ten bucks. That's a good deal right?

Amazon Echo is $89.99 save $90...that's a good deal and I'd jump on it for my wife if I had the money.

What!? Wait! Dang, you mean I missed Amazon Prime Day? To think I could have purchased a bag of dried, ground camel turd (labeled Ginger Root Powder for our American audience) from a Chinese internet company for under $11. Well, there is always next year.

Prime Day was awesome. There must have been at least 20 awesome deals that I just missed out on.

They did have my favorite underwear on sale for the same price I paid for them six months ago. I just missed out on that deal, too.

There was some good stuff in there, though. I just didn't get to it in time.

My favorite part about the day, though, was Beef's play-by-play.
