Amazon said Wednesday that this year's Prime Day was its "biggest in history" as Prime members purchased more than 100 million products during this years event.
The Seattle giant did not provide specifics, and added it had more sign-ups for Prime on July 16 than any previous day in Amazon history. Amazon uses the discount celebration to grab new members and promote its products and service

I bought some vitamins and a coffee maker. I save about $20. I looked for things I was going to buy anyway.
Didn’t even logon. I find I am buying less from Amazon this year. Next year, I may ditch Prime® altogether.
We celebrated by dropping our Prime membership. We intend to really save money, since non-Prime members not only save the new cost of $119, but they also buy less from Amazon throughout the year.
I find Prime Day about as useless as Black Friday.
Most of their ‘bargains’ are things I wouldn’t buy for half-price at a ‘dime’ store.
Cyber Monday, however, does have some good bargains occasionally.
Deals were lackluster aand mostly for entry level or bottom rung products.
I probably won’t even try to log on to buy any normal purchases (if I was in the process of buying something anyway) next year as the site kept crashing under the traffic this year.
It was as if they held a black friday sale in July and then only discounted socks and tricycles.
Aimsurplus did a spoof “Primer Day”, free shipping on all cases of ammo.
I stopped using Amazon and started using Walmart and their free shipping about a year ago.
I went to ebay instead and saved $25. on my $114. and above purchases. I bought 2 vinyl tablecloths for the patio table, 4 plastic canisters, 2x Leather honey (buy 2 get $5. off the second), a cloth tea sock ( for draining tabbouleh) , but I was two dollars off the $114. mark, so I bought a vintage deviled egg platter that came with two little chick salt and pepper shakers for $9.99. There were no shipping charges.
Overstock.com is a neutral to conservative rival to Amazon, whereas Amazon is solidly liberal.
Despite having huge issues with their site...yeah, of course.
I buy stuff when I need it, not because it’s on sale ...
