Every year in July, amazon has a special promotion called "Prime Day" and this year it is on July 11th. They said that some of the deals actually start tomorrow night. I am not sure why, but maybe because. Of the time difference worldwide, and the sales are good everywhere. For the last few days they have been having drawings for free merchandise, and if you sign in to your Amazon account, you can see what the special giveaways are. There was over 90 pages when I looked yesterday and more things added again today. I went through the list and entered for anything that I thought we might possibly like to have; but so far I didn't win anything. Some of the drawings, you can tell right away whether you won anything or not, and some of them, they will do a drawing and notify the winners. In any case, if you have some spare time, it might be fun to browse through and see what is offered. Some things, you have to watch a 2-minute video presentation about the item in order to enter the drawing, and some of them, you need to follow the seller on Twitter. I figured that after this is all over and done with, then I have to go to my Twitter account an unfollow the ones that I don't want to follow. Almost all of the sellers are also offering a discount coupon for 20-30 % off on the item, if you do not win it. I remember that they had this last year, and we didn't pay much attention to it because there wan't anyting that we were really interested in buying; but this year I might check it out just to see how good the specials are.
