7. Are prime Day deals better than Black Friday?
I personally haven’t tracked both in a given year. I may do this year on bestselling products from their bestselling categories (Alexa, Kindle, gift cards etc.) but according to US magazine Fortune.com
“Black Friday might still be considered the king of deal days by many, but when you look at the numbers, PrimeDay might be the best time to buy.”fortune.com
They run a four years comparison to establish which event Prime Day or Black Friday saves us more money when shopping on Amazon.

Final piece of advice : if you like some product(s) place it in your basket ASAP. That should hold its price- if not you can discard that in case its not such a bargain.
