Is Anyone Taking Advantage of Amazon Prime Day?
Nicole Dieker

I have a rice cooker and a slow cooker, both of which appear to be instant pots. Prime Day just feels like a ploy to herd lemmings on a 6 month schedule and I noticed Macy’s doing a BLACK FRIDAY in JULY! promotion to ride Amazon’s coattails. I don’t feel sorry for retail having an annual bump at Christmas but manufacturing retail holidays is unholy. Let’s celebrate something meaningful on Prime Day without spending, and save our money for the winter solstice.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
