    Amazon kicked off their 20th Anniversary sale today, called Amazon Prime Day. There are hundreds and hundreds of great deals. Tons of them are flash sales and are already gone. Sadly, we already missed one of the cooler offers. They were selling the Amazon Echo for only $130 (which was $50 off), but it's already 100% filled.

    There are still some great offers available, so we thought it prudent to list a few. Obviously it would be impossible for us to list them all, but we included a smattering of some of the juicier offers.

    *Keep in mind that some of these offers are called "Lightning Deals" which means they only last a short period of time instead of all day. You may want to head over to Amazon to peruse what they have to offer as soon as possible: Prime Day

    Yeah... I must admit that this Amazon Prime Day is a bit of a let down. They really overhyped, but the deals that are actually available are lackluster. There are a few good offers, but not too many.

    Checked Walmart, too. Do these companies really think people don't shop around? Do they really think we see 40% off the regular "retail price" and just believe that?
    Wal-mart has an RCA TV. 40% off the regular retail price of $799! It's only $399!
    Regular price anywhere else online is $499.
    This is why in general I don't trust sales on just about anything.

    Yeah, the good deals I saw on the Echo, Firestick, 4K tv, sd cards, have all been sold out. Their site crashed for a few minutes but it's back up and running. They still have great deals on GoPros, Bose headphones, BluRays, etc. Also keep in mind, not all "deals" are being released at the same time, they'll be staggered throughout the day.
    Typical "black Friday" sale though where they only offer a limited supply of sale items.
    If you aren't already a Prime member, I don't know that this "sale" would be worth joining after seeing the current offerings and sold out issues so far.

    I wasted a good 45 minutes looking and didn't see a thing that was on my list of wants or needs. Rubbish.
