Goodness there are so many deals coming up on Amazon Prime day! The Chicago Tribune expects record sales this year. How can you get the biggest bang for your buck, the most for your money? What’s the wisest use of your dollars?
I started doing research on Amazon Prime Day because I keep hearing about it; it’s popping into my media feed. It’s marketing genius, it is. People are getting worked into a frenzy and that’s exactly the result intended.
I have to admit when I started looking online at CNN, CNBC, and the Chicago Tribune, ideas popped into my head as to how I might use this, or who might need that. I was just doing research! It’s easy to see how quickly one can get sucked into the spending frenzy. You can buy anything from barbies to televisions, electronics to home goods.
