Are you brave enough to be a part of
Christmas in July?
If you have questions and are willing to drop them in the links, we will be answering them live or in follow up on the group page. Have you always wanted to suggest something, or have an idea to put out there? Will this work with that? Do these two colors work together? What style is heading in this year? What is the favorite thing that you’ve ever made for Christmas? How many trees do we put up? Theme or no theme for tree/trees? Do you collect Hallmark KSO? Do you DVR all the new movies every year?
Now on to all things Amazon for
Christmas in July for good buys.
Prime Day has been announced and is July 15th and 16th. You may think you
don’t need anything right now, but what if I told you that we are less than 6 months from Christmas and shopping early can save you hundreds if you shop deals like Amazon Prime Day.
WHAT IS PRIME DAY?
It is one of the biggest events of the year that lasts 30-hours. Amazon Prime Day refers to a Black Friday-like discount day that provides Amazon Prime customers exclusive deals. Amazon offers thousands of products at a discount on Amazon Prime Day, and it typically serves as the company’s biggest day of the year in terms of revenue, generating even more sales than on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
