Amazon Prime Day

Amazon Prime Day is July 15 and July 16. Amazon is going to have mega-deals that some people will not be able to resist. Walmart, eBay, and Target are also running mega-deals on July 15 and July 16 at an attempt to compete with Amazon. Interestingly, Macy’s is already running their mega-deals in an effort to stay ahead of the competition.

Amazon Prime Day isn’t an actual holiday, but it’s gotten so much traction in past years it’s becoming a holiday for other retailers to contend with. Of course, they want you to spend, spend, spend!

But, we are urging you not to. There may be one or two things that you need and can pick up at a really good price. Good for you. But, think about how many people will completely overspend on things that they do not need, will never need, won’t use, and should never have purchased just because it was on sale. It makes me think of all the people who go to Mexico on a cruise and buy a huge Mexican sombrero.

That sombrero may have seemed like a good idea at the time, but then they had to get it back on the plane or the boat and when they brought it home, they realized it was an impulse buy (let’s blame it on Margaritas).

Unlike the Mexican sombrero shop where you purchased the hat, Amazon will probably take back all of you are over purchases on prime day. But, you may have to wait 30 days or so to get your money back.

Let’s all resist. We promise you’ll be happy you did!
