5,000-dollar minimum deal size (number of units multiplied by deal price)
Can someone elaborate on this? Is that the number of units I will need to have in my inventory ready to sell?
BTW, for certain categories the minimum is $2500. It shows this when you go to sign up.

What's the question?

It's a legitimate Amazon event, but it's not the biggest shopping day of the year - that's still the on the Friday -- Monday after Thanksgiving (in the USA), or 'Singles Day' (November 11 in China).

You can choose to participate (or not).


Last years Prime day beat both black Friday and cyber Monday in gross sales.

I guess posting the whole email in an open forum is not technically forwarding.

They take the same fee but on a lower sales price (because you have to reduce the price to at least the amount the computer suggests). The benefit is the advertising.

My favorite part about this email..

"Thank you for working with us on this unique event."

Like they invented discount days or something.

lol, actually, I think Amazon is worried you'll click on the link if it's forwarded, so someone else can screw up your offer. I assume they verify the email or something to make sure it's you and just the delete the mismatches--but who knows.

I thought I remember a lot of talk last year about how Amazon Prime Day wasn't panning out as expected. I guess individual results must vary based on what some of ya'll are saying. Oh well, signed up!

So how does one get selected for this? I haven't received an email. Is there a certain criteria one has to meet for Amazon to send the invite?
