Prepare-Yourselves-Amazon-Prime-Day-Starts-on-Monday

The chaos that is Amazon Prime Day is almost upon us once again. It officially kicks off on Monday, July 15, but this time around it’s a “A two-day parade of epic deals.” Seeing as how many of the deals start earlier and last longer, they should probably just start calling it Prime Week and be done with it. But we digress. As with past years, there will be hundreds of thousands of different items on sale on a rotating basis over the course of the event. If the past years are any indication, Black Friday in July is just as much about clearing warehouse space as it is getting you great deals on the things you want, so expect there to be a few duds throughout the sale. But that’s where we come in! We’re going to do our thing like we have previously and sift through all the crap to make it easier for you to get the stuff you want. We’ll have a regularly updating blog post on the homepage, and we’ll be putting individual deals in the Cool Material Steals section. You need a Prime account to cash in on these deals. If you don’t already have one, sign up for a free Prime 30-day trial here: Amazon Prime 30-day Free Trial.
