A very Pittsburgh Amazon Prime Day for yinzers

Impulse buys for your hometown pride.

Amazon box

Today is Amazon Prime Day, the day each year that we take time to feed the e-commerce gods in hopes Jeff Bezos will reward us by not blotting out the sun.

In Pittsburgh, the sun is mostly blotted out already — so we’re probably good. But if you’re not actively boycotting Amazon’s plan to colonize the city, you might be looking for a deal on, say, a television that’s too big for your living room or an Alexa to speak Pittsburghese to.

Alternatively, you might be a proponent of HQ2 coming here and, assuming Bezos personally scans every Amazon order for copies of his biography, you might be eager to show him that your Pittsburgh pride knows no bounds and no particular price point.

More likely, you just can’t get enough Pittsburgh esoterica and kitsch to feed your cravings at the usual brick and mortars. If so, we’ve got you covered with our list of useless charming Pittsburgh items for sale on Amazon this Prime Day.

Happy hunting, and praise be to Bezos.
