Amazon won’t soon forget Prime Day 2018. The retail giant’s website crashed last Monday under the weight of millions of shoppers searching for digital deals. In the midst of covering the chaos, the Adweek tech team took part in a little online shopping of their own, Secret Santa-style, and all for a good cause. Watch as tech reporters Marty Swant, Lisa Lacy, Ann-Marie Alcantara, Patrick Kulp and Kelsey Sutton go in search of the perfect gift for a colleague, all for $20 or less.
