I'll do my best Crazy Eddie's imitation for my commercial and I'll make sure you're on the credits list.

The 4 months of Amazon music for $4 is particularly annoying to me.  I just signed up for a year of it for a discount price of $59  ($20 off) ???  I knew I was making a mistake, dang it!  At the time I thought, "hey, this will be great for when I'm on the road - driving, during booth setup, etc."  :( :( :(

In the UK they temporarily slashed the price of Prime to £59, from the regular price of £79.

I'm still old fashioned--I want my CDs. I do have a Pandora account for all of my 80's music but if I want to own the music, I buy the good ole fashioned CD. Heck, I even have a few cassettes somewhere around here. I don't have any records or 8-tracks, though.

I will admit that I pared down my CD collection to one box.
I ripped them into iTunes and Amazon Music.

We are getting so spoiled with Alexa.
Alexa, Play <insert name of band or soundtrack> and she searches Amazon Music.
Alexa, Play Fleetwood Mac in My Music.

And voila it's playing!

We have albums!
We pared those down as our middle son (hipsters are majorly into vinyl and cassettes) wanted them.

Our 8 tracks are long gone.
But what I hear from my second son who has friends in Portland (the epicenter of hipster) that they are scrambling everywhere for 8 tracks.
<smile>

I relied on Pandora outside of the house but have since moved to Amazon Music.

Actually thought about paying the special .99 a month for every month but nixed it.
My second son has Spotify and swears by it, but the Amazon Music for .99 covers the same music pretty much.

Working on getting sales set to ebb and flow during the next 3 days.
Fingers crossed we are all successful.

All hands on deck!

Yep. And I have my sale prices for certain items to go into effect tomorrow night at 6 and all through Prime Day on Tuesday. I imagine I will be busy replenishing certain products and celebrating the junk I've gotten rid of.

I still have a drawer full of cassettes and some 8 tracks

Just saw this that is going to hurt some of the 3P sellers - not only does Amazon have several books on sale today, but they have a $5 off $15 promo for books and reportedly works on calendars too.  Coupon code: PRIMEBOOKS17

They're also having tons of glitches today. Some people are having trouble getting that coupon to stay applied (it'll say it's applied but then it takes it off after you finalize the purchase).  There was a glitch earlier that let some people buy the Echo for $0.01, and a similar glitch let people buy TP-Link wifi outlets for $8 each.  That one was simply by asking Alexa to buy it.  The Echo one was ask Alexa to buy it, say no when it asks you to confirm, add it to cart manually, and at checkout it came out to $0.01.  It was discovered because person tried to order it via Alexa but Alexa said it'd be full price instead of the Prime Day price, so he said no and manually added, but when got to last step of purchasing, lo and behold...

It seems most of the glitches are Alexa ordering related, so hopefully it wont mess up 3P vendor sale prices.

Damn, I'd have loved to have scored an Echo for one cent.
<smile>

I placed an order via Alexa and the credit was immediately was deducted.
I'll double-check that order now.

My sales seem to be between YAY and So So.

Just read a thread about another product price glitch. This one was for the Segway Mini Pro.  Current Amazon price $499 but due to a glitch last night, people were getting the black model for $184 - $189.   No telling how many glitches happened yesterday.  Hopefully no 3P FBA prices were affected.

Looks like Amazon is trying to get people to sign up for business accounts again.  Now they're giving away the Echo Dot to business accounts http://www.amazonbusiness.com/echodot  Account creation requires submitting EIN.  Not sure if existing business accounts are eligible.

Hope everyone had a good Prime day event.

Re: Prime Day
Not great.
Not horrible.
So far better than last year.

The upside is: My inventory is clearing out of the warehouse which will help my LTS fees in August.

I had a surge of about 30% yesterday. I was hoping it would be more, but I can't complain. I did move a lot of stuff that had been sitting around. Between yesterday and my price slashing, I'm watching my LTSF go down and my inventory turnover ratio go up. Not bad.

All in the middle of the summer, too!
Congrats!
