A little while back the geniuses over at Amazon had the brilliant idea for a PR campaign called #PrimeDay that was billed for weeks as a day with more sales than Black Friday. However, what they were discounting was what they failed to mention.
Sadly, the reality is that the majority of featured items on sale were just embarrassingly bad. The internet has coined the day everything from “Amazon’s Garage Day Sale” to “one huge troll by Amazon.”
Needless to say, based on reactions to the deals offered on a day Amazon had hoped would catapult its Prime subscription to the next level of online shopping, it has been anything but a triumphant sale.
Thankfully the reactions were all worth the epic garage sale. We’ve included some of the actual deals available on #PrimeDay just for reference.
