A little earlier than previous years.

Wonder if it’s to allow them to start BF sales earlier?

From the article:

 

"When asked about the Prime Day timing, CFO Brian Olsavsky said on a call with investors: “In many areas, July is vacation month, so it might be better for customers, sellers and vendors to experiment with a different time period. We believe that it might be better timing later in [the second quarter], so that’s what we’re testing this year.”

 

I think that's a pretty legit reason. There have been times when I was on vacation in July and had to "waste" 1-2 days running the site for a Prime Day sale.

In case you didn't want to read the article:

1. Amazon exceeded earnings expectations and the stock went zoooooom.

2. Prime Day will be sometime in June.


GO BRUINS!

Ya ya ya I didn’t read it. :)

It makes sense. We have skipped things in the past since we are at the cabin mostly in July. We can have things shipped there but it’s a pain when the car was already full going there.
