I saved some items in cart this past last week, planning to buy on prime day discounts but today I saw that all the items had their prices increased! (I know that cuz of one gets the price fluctuations in message above cart).
I have a bad feeling about this sale day 😞
Is anyone else noticing it with their shopping list?

Yep i noticed that too.
I mostly bought my items from Flipkart already.
Only 2 items left of negligible amount. So no regrets. I had learned that from last years Prime day sale.

Now I feel like an idiot for not buying some of the items, which were around 40-50% off 😖
It was a bit rare to get them at that discount and I wasted it.

It’s normal.
Prices go through these fluctuations before sale
Doesnt mean they will stay this price after sale

There should be poll after sale on which platform provided better prices during the sale, Amazon or Flipkart.
This will help the dimers in future.

I had wishlisted same items both on Flipkart and Amazon.
Right after the sale started on 24th 12 AM i saw price reduction both in Amazon and Flipkart, but flipkart was more giving more discounts, so ordered right away from Flipkart itself. Only items are left that are not available on Flipkart

This time I feel no bugs will happen and no great deals.

This might become true. As per my understanding, Amazon India is now trying to make profit after spending so much money throughout these years. so now they are giving less discounts and cashback as the day progresses.
You might consider the following points which i found relevant -
1) Amazon has stopped combining multiple offers for cashback wef 01.01.2020
2) Now no monthly 100% recharge offers, there are some, but very user specific.
3) User specific offers has been given more and more thrust.
4) People used to have multiple Amazon accounts to loot maximum possible, but now 99% offers are on UPI only, and as we know for UPI to work we need bank account linked phone numbers, which leads to lesser number of amazon accounts.

Now for Flipkart, until 2019, amazon was doing better, but after being taken over by Walmart, Flipkart has become very aggressive in pricing, because they have cash now, to burn and acquire regular customers.

By considering the above points, we can conclude that, amazon is going to give less and less offers as the day passes by, whereas Flipkart will give offers until they gave gathered substantial customer base.
