Last week, while everyone was losing their minds over the upcoming Nordstrom sale I was more focused elsewhere.

Prime Day

While I still think the marriage between Amazon and Whole Foods is the greatest thing since crazy feta {seriously, get you some!}, it doesn't benefit me as much as I'd wish. But, if you spent $10 at Whole Foods in the past 5 days, Prime members received a $10 Amazon credit to use on Prime day. Guess where I was on Friday.

I admit there's opportunity to spend money on things I don't actually need {looking at you 2016} but this year I was smart and knew what I was looking for then sat back as the deals rolled out. Even with the site and app crashing, here's a look at that I picked up.

Echo Dot Kids Edition

I bought this for Little Miss for Christmas. It will play kid-friendly music, as well as tell jokes, read stories, and answer questions. She's always asking to talk to Siri or Google, so this was a must. Cost: $47.97

Clarisonic Acne Facial Cleansing Brush Head

I'm not sure if it's hormonal changes {every 7 years!} or just this season but my face has been freaking out this summer. I'm in need to replacement heads so I picked this up at a steal. Cost: $18.71

Clarisonic Radiance Brush head - Twin Pack

This was another nice pick up. I don't plan on using the above brush head daily so these will work nicely. And at $27 each, I was thrilled to get a twin pack for less. Cost: $25

The Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey Body Butter

This was definitely an impulse purchase. However, I need a good, thick cream for the coming winter months when I get very dry. Cost: $11.99

NYX Studio Perfect Primer, Green

This was an impulse as well. But NYX primer for less than $7 was worth it to me. This primer is supposed to help eliminate redness, which I tend to have at times. Cost: $6.82

TWOBIU Popcorn Machine

I used to have an amazing popcorn maker... then someone melted it. We replaced it but the 2nd version just wasn't as good. I pretty much stole this. It was marked down for the sale AND the there was a coupon for $10 off. Guys I paid $4.96! I only do air-popped at home so I can't wait to pop a big bowl as I snuggle into the couch. Cost: $4.96

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil

I have seen and ehard about this product non-stop. It's supposed to be amazing at removing makeup, etc. and I'm looking forward to trying it. Cost: $16.40

Amazon Fresh Delivery

This just happened to work out for me. I needed to hit the store and there was a promo for $30 off $100. So I picked up fresh produce, frozen 365 pizzas, lots of chicken breast, cheerios, hummus, TP and paper towels, and a few snacks for $100. All to be delivered to my door Friday before 7 am. Cost: 59.64

$50 J Crew gift card

I wasn't going to pass up a discounted gift card to a store I love. Better yet, a nice gift! Cost: $39.50

Kindle First Reads - All 6 July books

This was awesome! I got an email late in the afternoon about ALL the First Reads books being available for free to Prime users. I had already made my July selection but naturally I went and downloaded the other five - even the kid book. Frees books are free!

*       *       *

I'll admit I bought {a lot} more than I intended but I was selective in my purchases. 

Total cost: $230.99 - groceries {because these were needed and it's about what I would have spent in-store} = $171.35

All in all, that's not too shabby in my opinion. How about you? Did you score any good savings for Prime Day?

  1. not bad! the free books though...I didn't see that one. then again, i logged in, saw all the broken links, got mad and then forgot about it. the stuff i really wanted wasn't on sale but i bought them anyway *shrug*

  2. I didn't participate in Prime Day but I'm kind of glad I didn't because all those technical difficulties would have made me rage. You got some great stuff though! I didn't know there was a kid's edition of the Dot; that's such a great gift! I'm interested in hearing how Amazon Fresh works for you. After they changed their Pantry free shipping policy I've been boycotting.

  3. Ok so I wasn't getting your posts and then I realized that, on bloglovin, I had to follow here - and not this one - Just in case you didn't know that! It doesn't work when I click your name through disqus either, FYI.
