The nation is looking to snag a bargain this Amazon Prime Day, but with one in four shoppers regretting purchases they have made in the past, consumers should be aware of the ‘false allure’ of a discounting day.
According to new research from customer experience marketing agency Gekko, more than half (52%) of respondents expect to spend this Prime Day, with one in five (20%) planning to spend more than £100.

Just 17% expect to reduce their Prime Day spend.
Despite the excitement felt when securing a bargain at the time, one in four (24%) have regretted a purchase made on Prime Day, suggesting that consumers should be mindful of their spend.
