With Amazon Prime Day just around the corner, starting July 16 at 3 p.m. ET and running for 36 hours, questions beg: What do I buy? What do I avoid? Do I even play into the hype of what some consider an overblown garage sale?
As in Prime Days past, Amazon Prime Day 2018 will feature deep discounts on a few cool products — and deep discounts on lots of mediocre merchandise you probably wouldn’t otherwise consider.
