Specifically, Prime Day starts at noon Pacific time, or 3pm EDT. If you are a prime member, you have probably been deluged with email ads already. I certainly have. Surprisingly, most of the “deals” I’ve seen so far are for things that don’t really interest me.
I say, “surprisingly,” since Amazon is known for its ability to cross-reference nearly everything about you in order to more accurately target their ads.
But here’s a sample of some of the things they have pitched to me this week. Now, maybe I’m just weird or something — and some of these items might tickle your fancy, just not mine.
It’s a little better tasting (and possibly healthier) than either milk or non-dairy creamer (which is mostly sugar). But I almost always keep real cream in my ‘fridge.
Ah, here’s one that is a little bit closer to something that would interest me, since I occasionally do tele-presentations. However, I already have a good, comfortable USB headset with boom mic that works just fine. If I were doing stage presentations, I might spring for this ($65, down from $100) just for the sake of appearance.
Ok, there’s nothing wrong with any of these deals. They just don’t appeal to me. I hope that when the Prime Day deals start for real tomorrow, that they do a better job of targeting.
