Amazon’s dogs are here for you when Prime Day isn’t

PHOENIX – If you haven’t heard of Prime Day, here’s the basic rundown. But first, please share what’s it like living under a rock. Just kidding. In all seriousness, kudos to you for avoiding the madness that is Amazon’s Prime Day. Basically, Amazon is slashing prices on a million (literally) items worldwide for a limited time throughout the 36-hour event. So really, it should be called “Prime Day and a Half” but just Prime Day is more catchy.

Those one million deals are each limited to a timeframe. Different deals are dropped at different points throughout the 36-hour event. Shoppers can claim said deals within a given timeframe until the deal is 100% claimed. If that given window of time is still open but the deal is 100% claimed, then shoppers can add themselves to a waitlist. Here’s where the Dogs of Amazon come into play.

Amazon’s site has been slow, which makes sense as shoppers try to jump on the limited-quantity deals as fast as they can. So to ease the blow of an error page, Amazon’s error pages feature cute dogs. Does the picture of a dog make you feel better about missing out on a deal for an essential oil diffuser that you don’t really need? Not really, but it sure helps.

In conclusion, go shop Amazon Prime Day and a Half so, fingers crossed, you can see a cute pic like this. Good luck.
