Amazon Prime Day Will Return For 2016 (July 12th): Will It Be Another Let Down?

Last year Amazon held Prime Day to celebrate it’s 20th anniversary. The sale is for prime members only, Amazon boasts that last year during prime day they sold 34.4 million items worldwide (apparently their biggest sale day worldwide). Overall the sale was underwhelming and left a sour taste in most prime customer’s mouths. It seemed to be more about moving unwanted stock than real deals for paying customers.

Amazon has announced that Prime Day will be returning, this year it will happen on Tuesday, July 12th. This year there will be 100,000 deals worldwide and it’s open the following countries: U.S., U.K., Spain, Japan, Italy, Germany, France, Canada, Belgium, and Austria. In the lead up to prime day there will also be countdown deals from July 5th till July 11th (U.S. only). One example is a 32-inch TV bundle with Fire TV stick for $119.99. For prime day itself they say they will be making more than double the amount of TV’s than they have for Black Friday & Cyber Monday combined.

I’m quietly optimistic that this sale will have better offers (and be better run in general) after the negative press and customer irritation that Prime Day made last year. Let’s hope for some easy gift card reselling deals and also some items we actually want to purchase at a heavy discount. If you’re not already a prime member, you can get a membership here for 30 days for free.

what was funny last year was that other stores, like Macys and BB were fighting Amazon and they actually had better deals. ha
Amazon sucked.

Last year during prime day they sold 34.4 million items worldwide. So, Amazon ruled.

You’ll never find the best deals through your normal deals planned out by Amazon. Even Lightning deals are lightweight. The best deals are AZ price mistakes, matches to Walmart and one no one hears about, the out of stock deals where Amazon will reduce their usual price sometimes 70-80% because they still want sales. If you are willing to wait a week to 2 months for the product, the deals are excellent. You need to know how to use 3rd party sites such as Keepa and Camel to find these deals. Amazon does not advertise them and will never do that on Amazon Prime day. Take it from a long time Amazon seller. You have to do your research.

Amazon had its best sales day of the year on Prime Day. So it doesn’t seem like they need to make the deals better.

Were there any gift card reselling opportunities last year?
