The 15 Best Amazon Prime Day Deals For Parents


Black Friday? Pffft. Amazon’s Prime Day is here. Is it simply an excuse for another day of haphazard consumerism? Yeah.  But sometimes a deal’s a deal. And this day has deals. Starting tonight at 9 pm ET and for the next 30 hours, Amazon Prime members will have access to exclusive markdowns on everything from 40-inch 1080p TVs to Jump N’ Dunk Trampolines. Prime Day has quickly established itself as one of the premier shopping events of the year, rivaling only the day after Thanksgiving in terms of consumer holidays (Prime Day is expected to rake in nearly $1 billion dollars in 30 hours for Amazon). As there are hundreds of thousands of deals happening, the whole thing can be a bit overwhelming. But, it’s far less so than a crowd of shoppers throwing elbows on Black Friday. Anyway, here are some deals of note.
