Amazon Prime Day 2016

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past week, Tuesday July 12 was Amazon’s second annual Prime Day! The massive online retailer put tens of thousands of items on sale for one day only and I was able to snag a few great deals, including:


1) 30 day FREE trial of Amazon Prime!


2) Yamaha A-Series AC1M Acoustic-Electric Guitar

This guitar was regularly priced at $599, but was on special for Prime Day for $479, however it appears that Amazon is continuing to offer this item through Amazon Prime for the $479 price! In addition to the $479 price, I was given another $50 off for signing up for an Amazon Prime credit card that will also earn me 5% cash back on all of my Amazon purchases. This is a great deal on high-quality entry-level guitar!


3) Instant Pot IP-DUO60 7-in-1 Multi-Functional Pressure Cooker, 6Qt/1000W

This wonderful little pressure cooker was on sale for $69.99 on Prime Day! That is down from the regular price of $120! The Instant Pot is a 7-in-1 Multi-Functional Cooker – Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Saute/Browning, Yogurt Maker, Steamer & Warmer! I’m looking forward to putting this versatile kitchen appliance to use in the coming days! For some great Instant Pot Cookbooks, check out these options:


4) Vibram Men’s Vybrid Sneak Walking Shoe

This cool item was on sale during Prime Day for $49.95 versus the regular price of $87.50. I have always wanted to try a pair of these “toe shoes” and with my other walking shoes showing some major wear, I was due to purchase a new pair. I’ll be trying these out over the coming weeks and report back with the results!

Don’t forget the toe socks!

Amazon reported that the 2016 Prime Day was their biggest sales day ever with orders increasing more than 60% over the same event held last year! It is likely that Amazon sold an extra $500 million to $500 million worth of goods on Prime Day.
