Almost exactly halfway to Christmas Day, Amazon’s renowned reputation for online shopping makes their annual Amazon Prime Day sale feel like a national holiday. With the Fourth of July shrinking in the rearview mirror and Labor Day still a ways down the road, Prime Day is surely leading to celebrations around the world today, and perhaps even a few parties as well.
While Black Friday used to represent early bird shopping, these days it’s not too soon to shop for year-end holiday gifts midway through July. For those looking to establish or maintain an active lifestyle, today might be a great day to snag a device, apparel or any number of other products that will help propel the fulfillment of that endeavor.
