Writing gift guides is a dream come true for a former mall rat like myself. And while inventive packaging and clever marketing gimmicks no longer sway me, a good sale still manages to. Especially if it is an annual sale accompanied by a virtual Taylor Swift concert and two days of hoopla — here is looking at you Amazon Prime Day.
In the hierarchy of sales, Prime Day ranks as king, matched only by his half-brother, Cyber Monday (who is not so secretly gunning for the throne). This year, Prime Day lands on July 15-16, making it an entire 48-hour long shopping extravaganza. That is right people, it is now Amazon Prime DAYS. Hard emphasis on the “S.”
Instant gratification is defined as the desire to experience pleasure without delay. Thanks to Amazon Prime, instant gratification is only a click (and a speedy one or two business days) away.
And since you have to be a member to take in the sale to end all sales, if you are not already a Prime member, you can sign up here for a 30-day free trial. A commitment-free way to unlock this year’s deals. Hear that my fellow millennials? No commitment!
(We don’t know what the final price will be until the items go live for each, but fingers crossed!)
