I was hoping that was Australia where they'd probably be wearing real crocodiles.

[QUOTE]I love one thing and one thing only on planet Earth, and that’s getting a deal. I freaking LOVE DEALS. I love a dollar store. I love a coupon code. I love a free shipping offer. I love T.J. Maxx.
You’d think I would be thrilled by Amazon’s “Prime Day” — a newly minted midsummer sale extravaganza with deals that supposedly rival Black Friday’s.
But I’m thrifty — not a piece of human ****. This is garbage **** and you can’t fool me.[/QUOTE]

HOLY! Was that a lightning deal or price error? Only for the black? I can't believe I missed that :'(
Don't remember if it was a lightning deal or not, I just grabbed it ASAP lol.

I know it was a price error for sure though. The discount was applied twice. Once on the actual item page and then discounted again when checking out.

I think it was all colors that were available to ship by prime, if I remember correctly, but I wanted the blackout, so.

As has been mentioned - this is a direct consequence of a weak Canadian dollar. Something to keep in mind when the fall federal election rolls around....

Diaper sale was very good, but they seemed to not have a lot of stock. Most of the other stuff was a joke.

I was waiting for the Dragon Age Inquisition "Lightning Deal". Seeing as how it was 39.99 before I was thinking maybe it would get to $19 or even $29 I might bite... nope, it was 44.99 LOL

Guess what.. its now 39.99 again and you don't even need prime.

Yeah why not? Crappy (Canadian) Tire does it all the time.

While most of the things were terrible there were a few things like this that were just stellar.
You just had to be there to see them.
