Well, it turns out that while that has indeed been my experience in the past ... it's just because I haven't been doing Prime Day right.
From the timing of Lightning Deals to the various methods of scouring Amazon for discounts, there's a lot to know about Prime Day 2018. I polled the best deal-sniffers at Thrifter to figure out how to make the most out of the "Cyber Monday of the Summer," and they were nice enough to help me out even after I repeatedly used dumb expressions like that.
