Amazon prime day prices

Aibu to be annoyed at this?
Item advertised at £16 something down to £6.99 Or similar on the prime day. Lightening deal. I searched for the same item description as thought it might make a good present and lo and behold the exact same item is being sold under a slightly different description but the same seller at a regular price of £7.50. Still that price today.
So aibu to think that prime day is a complete joke and that they are pulling the wool over people's eyes?

I saw loads of that. I think Amazon do it in general actually, most of the time I see something advertised as money off it's just "reduced" to the prices every normal shop sell it for, or it's "reduced" to the price that Amazon have been selling it at for ages.
Really annoying, but Amazon always have things like this, not just prime day.

Definitely true. DH uses a site called camelcamelcamel to track what different prices things have been sold at over time so he can tell if it's genuinely a good deal. I think you paste in the URL of the item you're looking at and then choose some filter settings like if you want to include third party etc. and a line graph comes up with the price over a period of time showing how it went up and down. Results can be quite surprising.
