Amazon prime day is today! It started last night. I was already asleep. BUT the question is – is it worth it?
We all like sales but is this just more mindless shopping? The short answer is yes. Now I’ll show my hands and admit since April I’ve purchased TWO echo dots and a firestick. And do you know what I’ve realized? Gadgets begat gadgets. I stopped buying clothes but have set my site on gadgets and I’m ALWAYS looking to see what upgrades are out. But IF you’re calculating with your funds; this could really be a midsummer come up.
Here are some facts. You have to be a prime member first. Not one? Here. Thank me later (maybe).
I’d say stick to the gadgets because the beauty deals didn’t really strike me as a deal.
* Amazon Echo for $89.99 (save $90)
I’m a bit salty about this one but I’m going to chill. I have two dots…
* Amazon Echo Dot (2nd Generation) for $34.99 (save $15)
Again lowest price EVER. I got my first one for $50 and my second for $40. I could’ve had an echo AND a dot if I’d played the long game… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
* TP-Link Smart Plug ($19.99) that’s half off!! Combo that with the $34.99 dot and you have a dope little combo for UNDER $60!
* Amazon Music Unlimited 4 month Membership for $0.99
This is for new subscribers only, but a bargain worth trying. Just set a reminder with Alexa to cancel it after the 4 month trial! 😉
I see you 👀 MAC. It’s not even National Lipstick Day and you’re out here trying to keep up with the jonses. I’m TOTALLY not mad at MAC’s current buy 2 Lip products get one free lipstick deal and you shouldn’t be either.
But here are the details:
It’s not buy 2 lip PRODUCTS get ANY 3rd lipstick free, you only have 6 lipstick colors to choose from.
AND… In store varies from online (sad 🐼).
I went in for the color Barbecue but actual MAC locations (Columbus, OH) only had Mangrove. Two totally different colors, both bright but different. Also once they sell out of the free color, it’s gone. And they are not swapping a similar color. They have special product to (my guess is) ensure no shrinkage during this promotion.
Call ahead. I had to go to two locations and wait like a half hour just for the free lipstick and switch up my purchase options… 😒. It might sound like a hassle, but IRL it’s not if you have the time and were gonna kill time some other way (that involved spending your hard earned coins). #Mineaswell ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
All & all, I’m pleased and so much so that I figured it’s worth he sharing!
