Are you glued to your monitors searching and watching for that one Big Deal you just need to score—even if you didn’t know you needed that Big Deal until you saw it? How about some Prime deals that are not limited and last longer than 36-hours?
France in July. For the past 19 years, the month of July equals visiting France with very good friends. We’ve toured just about every nook and cranny of the Hexagon, from the famed cobblestone roads in the north to the never-ending fields of sunflowers swaying gently in the southern breeze.
