Amazon Prime Day. It’s like Christmas in July for those of us who not only love Amazon Prime but love to shop online. This year’s shopping extravaganza was pushed back due to the pandemic and is set for October 13 & 14. This blockbuster sale will feature more than one million deals. That is a whole lot of shopping.
I should say that’s a whole lot of shopping from your seat and not your feet. While we don’t know exactly what will be on sale, a few deals have been released already. But the fun of Prime Day is to see what will be on sale. Kind of like Black Friday.
