On Wednesday, following weeks of advertising “More deals than Black Friday,” Amazon Prime Day was upon us. Unfortunately, the Amazon Prime only sales event did not live up to its advertisement’s hype.
With just an hour into Amazon Prime Day, many shoppers took to social media to share their displeasure and disappointment in what was planned to be one of the biggest online shopping days for the massive retailor. Amazon’s hashtag for the event, #HappyPrimeDay, was quickly outnumbered on Twitter and other social media networks by #PrimeDayFail and #AmazonFail.
We compiled a handful of the many responses to the day which will forever live on in infamy. Enjoy!
When I die, I want whoever was responsible for #PrimeDay to lower me down into my grave so I can be let down one more time.

#PrimeDay is a bigger disappointment then I am to my parents

#PrimeDay is like receiving a treasure map & when you find the treasure chest, it's filled with shoehorns & compression socks. #PrimeDayFail

Thanks @amazon for reminding us that there is a day more disappointing than Monday. #PrimeDay

It’s not too late to spend $99 on @Amazon Prime so you can save $2 on shampoo and band-aids during these revolutionary #PrimeDay deals.

#Primeday is the time your parents say you are going to Disneyland and they take you to the dentist instead.

Ok, with all those tweets above it is important to note that some people actually did have a #HappyPrimeDay!
