The Twittersphere Hates Amazon Prime Day
It's Prime Day! Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) announced its version of a Black Friday sale in July earlier this month. The special discounts -- only available to the site's $99 per year Prime subscribers -- had customers excited about blockbuster sales on high-demand products.
Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be what they got. Shoppers flocked to Twitter on Wednesday to rant about the promotion's lackluster offerings.
For someone in need of wrist guards, shoe horns, granny panties, and tupperware, #PrimeDay really is better than Black Friday.

When I die, I want whoever was responsible for #PrimeDay to lower me down into my grave so I can be let down one more time.

But there's at least one good deal:
Greek bailout now valued at £61bn, or just £50bn today on Amazon Prime.

Amazon's stock is trading down just under a percent as Prime Day continues to be met with frustration. Earlier, Deutsche Bank analyst Ross Sandler said that promotions such as today's would "add fuel" to the "already strong" Prime story.
