I hate to rain on the parade here, but 15 is not a prime number.

Its called Prime Day because Amazon is turning 20 on July 15th, not because 15 is a prime number.

And you got to that by adding 3 numbers, you know what has three points?
A Trinagle

and the total was 37, which is the number 3. and then a 7 is the number 3 added twice and 3 times approximately an infinite number of 3s after a decimal.

And you know what letter isn't in amazon or booksurge? an I
Sounds like they are trying to hide Is.
Which is no mistake that I sounds like EYE

add it together and we have eye triangle. sound familiar?

Wake up bgg
Amazon, Illuminiate, confirmed.

Just remember to cancel it the day after the sale because it will charge you for the year after the month. You'll be stuck ordering from the same site for every product, even when they are cheaper elsewhere, until you die!!!! (or until you hit the cancel button, whichever comes first)

I've had Prime since 2005 and it's pretty great. I use Prime Video to watch all types of shows, and buy household items in bulk and save money. It depends on your situation of course (ie: proximity to CostCo, etc), but for me, Prime works out very well.

My girl friend forgot to cancel her prime trial, didn't use any of the services after the go live date and got a full refund about two weeks later.

And now with the No Rush shipping credits our non-Prime movies are generally free. Of course, we live in an area where even No Rush packages arrive in just a few days.

Re: "Amazon's Prime Day sale will have more deals than Black Friday" - July 15th
This was just a deal of the day:
http://www.amazon.com/Monster-Action-Figure-Bucket-Frankenst...

On sale for $13, when it's normally $18, with an MRSP of $30.

So, this deal is already over, but that company makes a ton of other nice figure buckets that would make some ideal Chrome to bling out your games (I'm planning on using these figurines to replace some of the Minion pieces in Defenders of the Realm). So that could be something to look out for.

It's so true - when I'm ordering something that I don't need immediately, I just hit no-rush shipping and get the credits, then use them to watch movies for free. And as someone else said, their customer-service is incredible.

If you're paying for prime then funding movies by choosing no rush credits, you'd need to watch like 20 movies a year to make it worth it. Otherwise it'd be cheaper to buy the movies and unsubscribe to prime. Just saying.
