You should have seen the super-lame first Prime Day.

The Shield TV is up for a lightning deal if anyone wants a HTPC.

About 100 items from my saved-for-later list in the cart vanished during this sale. One gets the feeling that Amazon wasn't fully prepared for all this traffic.

Re: Amazon Prime Day - July 16, 2018

I bought a handful of things from Amazon, including an Echo Spot and some movies. Much better then previous years, and I've been looking at some excellent deals but just couldn't pull the trigger on like a new Samsung SSD.

There's a lot of random things that always go on sale, so the people that are most disappointed seem to be the ones that want to see a lot of just video games or movies go on sale.

They seem to have the site issues fixed today, but the prices & selection aren't anything all that special (especially on media).

The best deal seems to me to be all of the various Kindle readers, but mine works fine.

There’s a bunch of great UHD titles for $14.99. I got a good selection of those.

Re: Amazon Prime Day - July 16, 2018

I was hoping that somehow Amazon would see what I had saved in my list and then offered many/most for a discount. I had a few items, Honeywell Lyric T5 thermostat and new Cable modem, that never were discounted (that I saw). Oh well, there is always Newegg to check.

I didn't know you had to click on cart & wish list items to see price drops. STUPID on Amazon's part.

Magnificently stupid indeed. I spent a good portion of my day going back and forth clicking and checking if they had a sale. I ended up buying 3 items. Had I not click I would have not ended up getting anything with their prime sale.

I hope next year or whenever they do this again they have a more simplified solution to make it smooth to make those sale purchases.

Re: Amazon Prime Day - July 16, 2018

Yeah, I thought that those titles which qualified for 20% off would have shown up in the "Saved for later" portion of the cart. They *did* indicate that in the cart proper. I spent way too much time checking each title to see if it qualified. Only 3 out of ~100 did. I didn't purchase any of them as they'd all been on sale for the same price, or less, in the past year which is a fair indicator they'll be that cheap again. If people wouldn't make knee jerk purchases because Amazon says it's a "deal" maybe they'd offer something other than the "let's see what we're overstocked on" items.

I did see the 20% off shown in my saved for later cart, but not right away.

Did they get rid of the Today's Deals tab altogether? I thought it was just a Prime Day thing but it's still gone. Dumb.

Weird. I wonder if I'm getting Pickup Location instead because of my area.

Or it could be one of their brain-dead cookie based experiments. You got lucky with the random cookie to test if you click on certain features. Try clearing your Amazon cookies - but be sure to close all Amazon windows/tabs, then clear Amazon cookies, then restart your browser. Or just try a different browser or computer as they don't always push those feature test cookies to every browser/computer you use.
