Can you feel my aggravation from here? I figured out why Mailchimp stopped sending my blog posts to subscribers. Unfortunately, it’s far more complicated than starting over. Apparently, my links and photos add unwelcomed code to the feed and Mailchimp rejects it.
I can not win. I’m not sure where that leaves me. So many people were following me through email. Bear with me while I try to figure something out. In the meantime, know that I post Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays at 7am CST.
That said, I think I’m going to make an exception for this Tuesday, July 12th. Tuesday is Prime Day at Amazon.
Last year was pathetic. First, they didn’t have enough inventory, and navigating the web site for these deals was clumsy. It wasn’t like the old Amazon at all. Apparently, they knew they goofed big time, and promised an easier shopping experience and more inventory.
From what I understand, the deals are only for customers with Prime memberships. But here’s where you can beat the system. You can opt for a FREE 30 day trial for Amazon Prime. (Just don’t forget to cancel after the 30 days are up.) Try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial.
The Gold Box deals have historically been good ones. I’ll be interested to see if they continue the trend for Prime Day. I suspect Amazon learned it’s lesson from last year, so I expect them to do better this year.
I was slow to get my Prime Membership, but we finally did it because the shipping costs were getting out of hand. The other reason is that Amazon has virtually everything!
Yesterday our air conditioner went out. My handsome mechanic/husband, Greg took a look and figured out it was the capacitor. We replaced the capacitor four years ago. We searched all over locally and finally found a place that sold it to us for 90 bucks.
We later learned that $90 was highway robbery, but we were desperate. Yesterday, on a fluke, Greg said, I wonder if Amazon carries these capacitors. They did. Nearly 75% cheaper than the local store. Oy! We ordered two.
Do you have a Prime Membership? If you don’t I recommend the Free Trial. You’ve got nothing to lose and you might score some good deals. I’m already shopping for Christmas so I’ve got my radar on for deals. My mother’s birthday is next month too and I want to get her something special.
