15 Amazon Prime Day Deals That Amazon Warriors Can’t Stop Talking About

The gods gave us many gifts, it’s been said, and one of those gifts was Amazon Prime Day, the most important holiday since the Amazon warriors won the War on Christmas. Speaking of that situation, today you will see so many websites on the Internet telling you about “Amazon Prime Day Deals” and imploring you to go forth and obtain them. However, there’s only ONE website on the internet that spoke to ACTUAL Amazons regarding deals they find appealing. Also, there’s only ONE website where the task of imploring you to shop through our affiliate links has been given to somebody with zero passion for the task rather than to a marketing team or whatever it is they do over there in the fancy seats. Listen; Autostraddle gets a percentage of sales referred through these links, which applies to anything you buy after hitting up Amazon via link, not just the item in question. Wow! If you’re not familiar with “Amazon,” do yourself a favor and catch a matinee of Wonder Woman. It’s okay, popcorn counts as lunch.

Also, you can sign up for a 30-Day Free Trial of Amazon Prime if you don’t already have one. Look at all the fun things you could watch if you had it.

  1. Riese, this is just a work of art. On our monitors at work, we were able to have movies play while working (I’m a Programmer). I used to discretely go through the queer movie section of Amazon Prime. I mean, my word… those films, no, those cinematic masterpieces!

  2. I just moved to Canada and now I can finally do all my shopping though your affiliate link (which I already did this week!). Before I couldn’t do this because you didn’t have any with Amazon.de but now finally the glorious time has come! And it makes me very very happy each time I open Amazon.ca through the magic link!

  3. well now you’ve done it, left me with no choice but to buy the Calvin Klein boy shorts right before the deal expired. ugh. late-stage capitalism is problematic but like a gal’s gotta be battle ready???
