So Amazon Prime Day (earlier this week, on July 12th) wasn’t as crappy as it was last year! That’s a major plus!

I remember Amazon hyping the hell out of the deals we’d see last year and it turned out everything was completely lacklustre. This time around, we actually saw some substantial price drops on LOTS of items for sale. I bought an AmazonBasics 6' Lightning cable, a new power strip (with built in USB chargers), a lightweight/cheap backpack for travelling, and the pièce de résistance... An Xbox One, bundled with Forza 6, Halo 5 Guardians: Limited Edition, The Division, Fallout 4, and an extra controller!

So my question for you is: What’s the best sale you’ve taken advantage of? I know we’ve got some DealMasters on TAY, so I’m expecting to be blown away by them!

If you don’t want to talk about about this, or sift through your playlist, then feel free to talk amongst yourselves!
