    Anyone watching out for particular accessories during Prime Day on Amazon? Which?

    Just curious if there’s anything in particular anyone is looking out for on prime day. I have Aeronaut 30 and 45, and a few misc tumi bags. Wondering if there’s any often-recommended accessories we can grab on the cheap?

    Last time I got excited about the Amazon Prime Day, the bargains were actually kind of weird. Almost like it was confined to the inventory they wanted to get rid of, and it wasn't stuff I needed/wanted.

    Also, I'm not crazy about Amazon these days. The way they treat the factory workers is purportedly pretty bad, and their acquisition of Whole Foods has me worried. I'm ashamed to say that I haven't cancelled my Prime membership, partly because other family members rely on it, and because it gets me a reduced rate on the Washington Post. But I'm trying to pare down what I purchase from them and do more patronage of brick-and-mortar stores. (That said, it is hard to stop entirely.)

    I wound up getting a few of their house brand shirts - nice enough for the price.. nothing else too impressive I’ve seen so far.

    I was curious about Prime Day because I've seen people rave about their bargains in past years. Was keeping an eye out for Instant Pot accessories - saw that some people scored a pot for about $45, but it seemed to be a short-lived sale or a glitch. I was hoping for a deal on a Jackery though they're pretty inexpensive anyway. After all that, I scored a box of... LaraBars!! Chocolate peanut butter. LOL.

    Best deal I've seen so far is a 20 oz Zojirushi mug at half price! I scored a new kindle and the same box of larabars as Haraya....lol.

    @agland I took the liberty and moved this thread into the "not about bags" section.

    Have a great day

    For those of you who were interested in the Zojurushi mugs (16 oz Stainless Steel -- no Teflon lining), there's an Amazon Prime Lightning Deal on right now for the Black Zojirushi SM-KHE48BA Stainless Steel Mug $17.99 (not a huge savings, 41% claimed, 2 hours 40 some minutes to go. (I'm not participating in this.)

    Yes, I've been disappointed every year with Prime Day. Of course, I also started moving away from amazon 2-3 years ago as I noticed their service decline, as well as pricing strategy (e.g., Amazon not creating sales, but instead only price-matching sales of competitors.)

    I didn't buy a single thing this year. I shop exclusively from my wish list though, so I didn't really see anything they were peddling.

    The only sale was on a Kindle I have listed since mine is getting near its end and it wasn't a deep enough discount for me to shell out before mine actually died on me.
