These Are The Absolute Dumbest Things From Amazon Prime Day


Amazon Prime Day, hailed as the online retail behemoth’s version of Black Friday or Cyber Monday, has a bit of a reputation.

As bad as the Lightning Deals are, there's still a waitlist to save 36% on a 16 bar pack of soap! #PrimeDayFail

While there are definitely some good deals, particularly on Amazon devices and Squatty Potties, there’s also some really random ones.

Oh, and even these discounts are only available to people with Amazon Prime. So if you don’t have it yet, but you want 20% off a Costco-sized shipment of Axe body spray, sign up here for a free 30-day trial.

Actual review: "First thing I looked up was 'poking.' Not one word was found so I was disappointed. Haven't looked at it since. Just a paperweight now." - Dorothy K.

2. This cat sounds therapy CD that's only $2.40 off.

Actual review: "I eagarly awaited the CD only to be disappointed that it only lasts about 20 minutes. Just about the time I was dozing off... it stopped! I thought I was purchasing an entire CD (an hour?). Just sayin..." - DA

If the name didn't put you off, check out that photo.

6. 10% off this piece of "art" that looks like someone bled on a plank of wood.

It's called "Smash XVI" so that might actually be what it's depicting. And it's still $107.99???

A whole range of Ready2Hang art like this is on sale if you happen to be decorating the waiting room in hell.

Maybe Amazon is team dog?
