Amazon Prime Day really is one of the strangest sales on the internet. These items are proof.
Expected to happen around mid-July 2020, the latest Amazon Prime Day is expected to live up to its reputation as the biggest shopping day there is. In 2019, the two-day shopping event had higher sales totals than Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined, as shoppers snapped up deeply discounted Instant Pots, Amazon Echo devices and more.
But good deals are only half of the Amazon Prime Day fun, because the shopping holiday has become just as synonymous with the weird and usual. You can get a great deal on an electric toothbrush, sure. But how about a deal on a Hillary Clinton Chia Pet? Maybe a discount on a 55-gallon drum of personal lubricant is more your speed?
