    I don't think I've ever shopped specifically on a Prime day, unless that's when I bought my InstantPot a few years ago. Is there a strategy? Do you put things in your cart and hope they go on sale?

    ^^^ I sometimes keep a "wishlist" - an actual thing you can do on Amazon. That is easy then to click on and see if the item has a reduced price offer.

    I often like watching the timed deals - ones that will go up for sale and then either be for a certain period of time or until the item is sold out. Sometimes they show the % of the item left in stock - a tactic I'm sure!

    If you're a Prime member, spend $10 at Whole Foods and get a $10 certificate for Prime Days. (Have to scan your bar code.) I think the offer is still going.

    We are looking for 2 iPad airs, 2019 version. Will likely buy them at Costco, but am waiting to see if there are any prime offers.

    In the past, there has been a promo code for books. You didn't have to be a Prime member to use the promo code.
    Other online retailers now piggy back on Prime Day. I will be seeking them out. Last year Eddie Bauer had 50% off everything on Prime Day.

    Eddie Bauer 50% off days aren't that uncommon.

    Target is supposed to have something to compete with Prime Day.

    It'll be like Christmas in July with the retailers all trying to get a piece of the action. :)

    I read there will be a lot of Amazon's own products on sale... I'm hoping to snag one of those under-the-seat carry-on suitcases on sale.

    Do we agree to use this thread to post any good deals we see? Agree if you agree!

    I also will look at rugs. Last year my D got a couple of nice 5 x 7 rugs for her apartment. I could replace a couple 8 x 10 rugs in the house.

    If looking for Apple products I have had great luck and the products are basically new. Most are just returned and like never used. Also same full warranty so really nothing to lose. FYI for comparison.

    My past Prime buys were 2 Bose noise canceling headphones (impulse buy, but they were so cheap and work great!) and Li ion battery powered leaf blower by Greenworks (AMAZING!!!). Oh, and the Instapot and a bag of cat litter deeply discounted (but dang only one bag was offfered!). Not sure what I need and if I need anything...

    We already have everything we want by now- scored discounts from various sources over time. Been there, done that so often.

    Don't forget to look at the Tech Bargains website for a good take on deals from Amazon and elsewhere.

    The Amazon firestick is really cheap. We use them on all our tvs and cut the cable cord. FYI

    My daughter has an old Kindle, which she says is "fine", but I'd love to get her a new one.

    FYI - We are returning our second Fire 4k stick. We bought the first Fire 4k stick a month ago, and immediately had weird glitches. I attempted to return the stick, and was directed to Chat instead of the usual return sequence. Amazon sent a new stick and told me to not return the first stick, but "do what I wanted" with the old one, which I thought was odd. The new stick caused the picture to become dim, and we have asked for a refund. This time there was no chat option, but we were directed to call or email. In the past we owned the original model fire stick, and then the box. We had no problems, but wanted to upgrade.

    I don't have any 4k tvs and the regular sticks works great

    “Fire 4K stick”? “4K tv”? I am feeling so old and so out! 😂
