Amazon.com celebrated 20 years of selling you anything you’d every dream of with Amazon Prime Day. The site boasted sales that would shame Black Friday, however, users found yesterday that this was not the case.
Not only were items barely discounted, those that were were wildly underwhelming. So what do people do when an internet sale goes awry? Take to Twitter of course!
Here are the best tweets from Amazon’s Prime Day fail.
#PrimeDay is like when grandma says "help yourself to the candy jar!" but it has nothing but raisins and sugar-free salt water taffy— Dera Luce (@DeraLuce) July 15, 2015
called "lightning deals" because you have better odds of getting stuck by actual lightning than getting something you want #PrimeDayFail— Danielle (@tiny_seeds) July 16, 2015
LOL at Amazon getting everybody excited about Prime Day & then showing up like that clearance table at TJ Maxx.— Anil Dash (@anildash) July 15, 2015
Your ancestors worked hard so you could enjoy #PrimeDay. So go get some curly straws at 83% off!— Jason Gore (@sonicdork) July 15, 2015
When I die, I want whoever was responsible for #PrimeDay to lower me down into my grave so I can be let down one more time.— Lori Smith (@LoriDianeSmith) July 15, 2015
