The Best (and Worst) of Amazon's Prime Day

It looks like, Inc.'s (NASDAQ:AMZN) Prime Day has gone horrible awry

facebook X logo linkedin, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) has been hyping today's Prime Day for some time, and it seemed coming in that expectations were fairly high. And that's understandable: What sounds better than getting great deals without having to step away from "Cupcake Wars"? Excitement built to the point that Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE:WMT) decided it should do something, so it's having an online sale of its own.

Most of the focus has remained on Amazon, though, and that is not a good thing. It seems Prime Day is making a name for itself by promoting a lot of strange items. Let's take a peek at the conversation taking place on Twitter.

It's never good when customers add "fail" to the end of your trending hashtag. Many other people disapproved of the lack of Optimus Prime appearances within Prime Day.


Other shoppers were happy to get some Pop-Tarts, though.

Many have compared the event to a garage sale, or clearance event.


From the look of it, AMZN shoppers think Prime Day is a disaster ... and it's hard to blame them. Amazon said the event would be bigger than Black Friday, you know, when consumers get awesome deals on cool items, like TVs and other electronics. Not transaction checkbook registers.



This must mean Wal-Mart won the "sales showdown," right? Well, maybe not. From the looks of it, Wal-Mart isn't exactly offering the most exciting products, either...
