Amazon Prime Day duds instead of deals

Amazon Prime Day is just past the halfway mark and so far angry consumers say it has been a big disappointment.

Prime Day, touted as a bigger than Black Friday day full of deals for Amazon Prime members, was supposed to feature comparable Black Friday discounts on everything from HDTVs to books.

Bose headphones, an Amazon Prime Deal of the Day, cost $79.99 (47% off regular price).

And while Amazon's preview of deals showed some promising savings, when anxious shoppers logged on, they found a bunch of duds — Sharpies, granny panties, Tupperware, squeegees and candy instead of electronics like 40-inch TVs and digital cameras at better than Black Friday prices.

Twitter response to #PrimeDay (naturally a top trending topic) seems to be engaging more would be shoppers than the sale itself:

Boy if you're a knee brace enthusiast #PrimeDay must be heaven for you!!
