Rise and Shine July 12 – Thank you for a great Prime Day, Regal Summer movie series, Macy’s July specials, inflatable kayak, audio technica deals, more

Rise and Shine is my way of starting the day with you – almost as if we’re chatting over a hot cup of coffee or tea! I share my favorite deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help you save time, money or energy. Published in the morning on Monday through Friday  – as I’m able. 

Good morning! Whew. . . the last 36-48 hours was a little crazy with Amazon Prime day, right!?! What deals did you pick up? I ended up picking up quite a few deals personally! My favorite was probably the stand-up paddle board, which I picked up for $235, the lowest price I’ve seen it! I also got some Subscribe and Save deals, Keen sandals for my kiddos, New Balance shoes for Mr. Queen Bee and a few other things we have been needing. What were your favorite Prime Day deals? 

Make sure you’re a member of our official Queen Bee Facebook group – we’ll continue to use this group to post deals and to help you be save money and time! If you’re not on Facebook (or don’t prefer groups, you can still sign up for our email newsletters – which include Rise and Shine, Amazon deals, etc.
