Disappointed with Amazon Prime Day? Check out - launching Tuesday, 7/21. Prime Day deals except all the time

Very underwhelming and I never liked the way they assembly line the deals. Plus it is very misleading the way they say % off when they say that anyway for items never on sale. Tip of the day: Go to Camel Camel Camel to see the actual price history of Amazon items and determine if you really are getting a great deal this time around.

Don't count on being paid though. The Amazon categories you get paid back for are specific per portal. Many of the items within a category will not qualify either and you won't know. If you mix category and non-category in your purchase you may not get paid anything at all. Go through the portal anyway if your item is in a category, but don't be shocked if you do not end up getting a rebate.

I didn't realize that the portals also offered % discounts on Amazon shopping. Thanks for the tip!
