Each year, Amazon customers participate in the online conglomerate’s annual Prime Day. The sales event lasts for 48 hours and allows consumers to purchase practically anything they want at a significant discount. Through an Amazon Prime membership, you can participate in sales on patio furniture, TVs, laptops, clothing, and Amazon’s online collection.
In 2022, Amazon announced that Prime Day would run from July 12-13. Similar to Black Friday, though, many customers gear up for Prime Day months and months in advance. Additionally, multiple people used humor to express their thoughts on the shopping event. Here are some of the best Prime Day memes we discovered!
1. This Amazon Prime Day tweet reminds us that COVID is still out here.
Amazon Prime became a saving grace for a lot of folks during the coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdowns. Two years later, the website seemingly continues to support its customers through the pandemic, as one of its sales includes discounts on COVID home tests. While it might not be the first thing on your wishlist, it’s good to know you can buy a few at a lower price on Prime Day.
2. The face all Amazon Prime customers make when Prime Day comes.
Although Amazon won’t officially disperse all of its discounts until July 12, 2022, most Prime Day vets have already begun picking out their dream items. For some, it’s hard not to burst with glee just thinking about completing an order on a new batch of sales.
3. One online shopper enjoys watching the chaos between Amazon and other stores unfold.
When Amazon released its Prime Day 2022 schedule, the e-commerce store received competition from notable department stores. Target released its online Deal Days on July 11, 2022, one day before Prime Day, where they offer sales exclusively online to compete with Amazon Prime. Many customers enjoy the beef between the brands, as it means more discounts to choose from.
4. An Instagram meme pays homage to the Amazon Prime Day “OG.”
While Prime Day can seem like another excuse to splurge on another fake plant or that flat screen you’ve been eyeing for the bedroom, comic book fans want Amazon customers to know the true meaning of the two-day holiday. For some Transformers fans, Prime Day is a day to pay homage to Optimus Prime. Before Amazon’s launch, the fallen leader was the only thing anyone thought of when they heard “Prime” in public.
Many Prime Day followers will recall seeing some variation of the Optimus Prime meme throughout the years. However, it still remains an oldie but goodie photo to use to celebrate the event.
5. Don’t try to come in between an Amazon Prime Day customer and their cart.
Sometimes, not even a bank account balance will get in the way of a Prime Day sale. As this Bugs Bunny meme represents, some customers are unbothered by their other financial responsibilities and don’t want to hear any comments from haters.
