If you’ve been reading the WLR, you’ll know that one news story I have been following with interest is the stockpile of merchandise that retailers are sitting on. And what this means for U.S. consumers is a holiday shopping season that commences before the leaves start turning.
The latest attempt by Amazon to offload its inventory is something called “Prime Early Access Sale,” which is available exclusively to Prime members (if you aren’t a subscriber, check this page to see if you are eligible for a free trial). Early access to what exactly, you wonder… and according to the original press release, it’s really just the holiday shopping season kickoff event, so don’t dwell on the name too much. Just think of it as Prime Day 2.0.
On the whole, the deals aren’t particularly exciting, but quite a few things in my closet are marked down, so I’ve highlighted them below for those with more immediate shopping needs.
The only promotion that I’d recommend without reservation, unless you don’t use Amazon at all, is the “Buy $50.00 Amazon Gift Card, Get $10 Credit” offer.
