Prime Day Deals That Really Exist

Today is Prime Day, an artificial sale date created by Amazon to get you to spend more money on things you probably don't need. Since it's inception in 2015, the past 2 years have been full of less then stellar deals. Unless you're looking for 55 gallons of lube. Still, Amazon has cleaned up with record sale numbers for the event. While there are some decent deals today on Amazon branded products, there will be the silly stuff mixed in between that makes you wonder 1: why does Amazon have it? and 2: who would buy it?

We're going to look at some of the best and wierdest deals you can find on Prime Day. Okay so it's really 2 good gaming console deals and the rest are silly, but hey! It's Prime Day:

- PS4 Slim 500 Gig, down $70 from it's original retail price. And it comes with Uncharted 4. If you don't have the console yet, that's not a bad price to consider buying it up now.

- XBox One S, save $128. It includes the system, an extra controller, a charging station, and 3 games.

- A Log Rack, 43% off MSRP! Okay this popped up in the Video Game category and I don't know why. I'm not sure what a log rack and gamers have in common, but it was too weird to not post.

- How about $1.97 off a spiral notebook? It's ho-hum savings when you think about it. You could get cheaper if you walked into a Walmart right now.

- A Unicorn Ballpoint Pen at 43% off. I did not know this was a thing. How is this a thing? You have to split it in half to use it, and that seems kind of wrong.

- Lion Brand Yarn - Tutti Frutti. It's not the sale that amuses me, but the 1-2 month delivery time! When it finally arrives, your need for the colorful yarn will be no more!

- Garden in a Can at 20% off. Because nothing says "I am a hipster gardener trying to look white-trash" then growing oregano out of a designer-ready tin can.

- 48% off a 7 pack of silicone "wedding" rings for men. Why 7? Well one for every day of the week, because obviously you are manly and have to work out daily to require such a thing!

- How about 30% off a 36-Can Mega Pack of Play Doh? Enough fun for the whole family, and your neighbors, and their extended families, and your co-workers!

- Fish Food in bulk seems to be a big sale item for Prime Day. And, not joking, if you search Fish Food under the Prime Day settings, these BBQ non-stick mats pop up.

Happy Shopping!
