Black Friday. President’s Day. Labor Day. All of these arbitrary holiday designations for retail sales weren’t enough for Amazon, so they had to invent an entirely new holiday: Prime Day. Well, two: Now, in addition to Amazon’s summer deals event, there’s Prime Big Deal Days, scheduled for October.
