Glad the sale sucked to be honest. I've been trying to spend less but tend to jump on good deals for things I want/need. I only spent about $140 and got...

$45 of Amazon Gift Cards w/ $10 Amazon promo code.
Pride of Baghdad Deluxe Edition
The Art of Mad Max: Fury Road
VHS Video Cover Art: 1980s to Early 1990s
A hard gun case that had a lightning deal. Had been neglecting to get one for a few months now.

Saved $20 on those last three since I have an Amazon card and the order totaled $103.

How much was the Mad Max artbook going for? Missed it.

Kingsman Bluray for 10 bucks. I would have bought the PS Camera if I'd have been paying attention when the deal was up, but I am hardly devastated without it. What a shit tier sale.

Amazon will suffer for this come november
Amazon was never a huge Black Friday competitor. It is more for brick and mortar and e-commerce companies that don't normally hold sales or discounts. Amazon is pretty decent the other 364 days of the year. They just fucked up by hyping this and comparing it to BF.

No they won't. People will forget about this in two weeks' time and go back to shopping at Amazon, if they haven't already.

Nobody is going to "take a stand" and stop shopping or avoid their Black Friday just because of a crappy sale six months prior. All they need is one good deal for people to start salivating again.

I'm not going to take a stand, or avoid Amazon in the future. However, I did quietly end my automatic renewal. The promotion led me to realize how little of their services (music/streaming) I use, and with overall rising prices I don't think the $99 membership is worth the free shipping anymore.

Sales sucks but Amazon customer service is still tops for me, and i am sure for many others too. So we still will keep going back to buy from them, no choice

So the only item I bought that was part of a 'lightning deal' during Prime Day is currently selling at the same price. Luckily I bought it mostly to hit the $100 so I could knock off $20 with my card. Still, pretty scummy of them to do.

Apologies for the bump but if anyone signed up for the Prime trial you should make sure to disable the auto-renew feature if you're not planning to continue the subscription.

I'm a dumbass and forgot to do that so I got charged for the whole year today.

I tried. They said no. I actually do think Prime is a decent service so I'm not too annoyed about paying for it. Just feel a bit stupid that I forgot the most obvious thing.
That's against their own policy: http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=201118010
