A little insight to the naïve ones
If you have been living under a rock and don’t know what Amazon Prime day is, then you probably missed a very good opportunity. Amazon prime day is somewhat similar to the Black Friday where Amazon slashes off prices from tech items through a course of 30 hours. This started from July 11th and for most countries, you probably missed the offer. Although the offer may still remain depending on which corner of the world you live. But what sets this sale apart from usual ones is the prices are not stagnant. Amazon keeps putting them down and pulling it back up throughout the 30 hours. You can go to Amazon.com/primeday or use the app to know about the offers and order them. You can add things to cart but if you don’t buy it within 15 minutes, the offer is no longer available in your cart and rather goes to the ones in the waiting list.
Now that you are caught up, let’s look at the deals you missed sorted accordingly.
