Outside of the shipping perk, I have never been able to have any other advantages as a prime member. Their prime deals can never be searched, I can't have any alerts set up..useless. 99% of prime deals are in fact gargabe and can be gotten directly from AliExpress and the like, as someone has mentioned already.

Too bad, I guess we'll see what this round brings, it'd be nice to find a Bosch trim router for $80 ;)

Expect a ton of sales on such coveted items as...

USB cables
Oil diffusers
Hair dryers
No name cameras
Smartphone case after case after case after case & other exciting accessories
watches from brand names you can't pronounce
Dvds + blurays
a wide array of dollar store items with a +600% mark up
... then an O-K deal on something like an instant pot.

On slightly more serious note, the types of deals I've seen over the years that some people may be interested in...
Diaper discounts (a surprising number of people on here seem to love those)
144hz monitor and SSD deals
and Instant Pots

Can't think of much else.

Diapers are a huge expense for parents, man. Big discounts are a good thing. I feel like they did some Nest/Ecobee discounts for Prime day last year too. Those were tempting, but ultimately I decided to hold off (which was good, cuz then I got my free Ecobee a few months later :))

All the whiners complaining about cheap chinese junk, what do they expect, LG Oleds, Macbooks for a few 100 bucks? It is the inexpensive Chinese products that keeps inflation low and allows consumers in the West to afford stuff that they generally wouldn't/couldn't b4. A few examples, the gas spring desk mounts that use to cost over $150 easily just several years back are now selling for $30ish, and dual/triple monitor HDMI USB 3.0 docks that cost half for the same capability of expensive desktop video cards. All of this becus of made in China, make that in a Western country and all of these whiners will cry over their wallets. If the product is right for u, buy or don't, these retailers are not forcing you to. Once the global trade war goes full swing, see how bad prices get here and the same people will whine quietly to themselves why these Chinese junk cost so much now . . .

I love Prime Day. Hopefully they'll put something special up like the larger Lego sets. Or cool socks.
Don't talk about it, be about it

I wonder if aliexpress will have deals to steal some thunder from Amazon.

I've ordered a few things from Aliexpress, the problem is the shipping time. The best thing was two sets of polarized lenses for my oakley sunglasses, they were $35 in total with shipping and all, they are in fact polarized and fit in fine for the Holbrooks. Oakley wanted $90 for 1 pair...

Honestly, Amazon should consider to change the time next year. Either the event is on the weekend/holiday OR during AFTER regular office-hours. People will not have time to do any research or product searching during regular office hours. If it is too many deals need to post, then change from Prime Day to Prime Week and spread them across different days.

I am all for buying chinese made items. I think you missed the point of the complaints. It wasn't the fact that there were chinese made items for Prime day but that these items are not really on sale and can regularly be purchased for the prime day prices or less from AliExpress and other Chinese websites. The amount of these items make it difficult to search for items that are truly on sale and a good deal.
