Did you know that Amazon Prime Day started last evening at 6:00? (July 10, 2017)

Seeing some of the news reports about this, is somewhat amazing to see what is offered at discounted pricing. According to some news reports Amazon’s sales upped by 60% last year on prime day. I assume this is 60% of daily sales.

According to one report, las year on prime day they sold around 90,000 TVs, two million toys, 200,000 headphones and 14,000 of a single brand of  laptops.

Watching other news, it appears that eBay is also running ads to compete with this highly competitive day of sales on Amazon.  I find it interesting that eBay has its own search engine built into the site. Have any of you tried it?

Reports also say that several of the big brand retail storefront outlets are being affected by losing sales to online outlets.

I wonder have  any or many of you switched to purchasing items online versus retail shopping?

Even Wal Mart is upping their marketing programs with their purchase online and drive in and pickup your items. Does our local El Dorado Wal Mart offer this? Or does any one know?

One this is for sure, things have changed a lot in my generations’ lifetime.
