Prime Day is here, full of hope, possibility and solutions — like unbelievable discounts on luggage. And if the deals seem more extreme than in the past, you're not imagining things. "It’s a consumer’s market this year,” says Rakuten Retail & Shopping Expert Kristen Gall. She cites the cumulative $45 billion in overstock across U.S. major retailers as the cause — orders placed during the supply chain crisis of 2021. Amazon, like other retailers, is eager to clear out. Maybe that's why Samsonite, American Tourister, and Kenneth Cole luggage is marked down by nearly 65 percent — Get on it!
