So yesterday was Prime day on Amazon. Billed as more deals than Black Friday we all eagerly made our way to Amazon to fill our baskets with wonderful, reduced items that would fulfil all our needs. And then there was this:

This summed up Prime Day perfectly. Thousands of items that no one really wanted at a bargain price. Don’t get me wrong; in amongst all the crap were deals to be had. I managed to pick up a Blue Mic Yeti for 25% off which I was happy about. That was pretty much it though……think of the worst car boot sale (garage sales to my US readers!) you have ever been to and then add free home delivery.
My own tweet on the subject caused a little stir. I had to switch off my phone over night because of all the notifications from Twitter. Currently sitting at 114 retweets and 239 favourites!

I even managed to get my Tweet picked up on some other sites talking about how #PrimeDayFail totally underwhelmed everyone!
I can’t wait to see how Amazon tops this next year!
