Over the two days of Prime Day, on July 15 and 16, sales surpassed the previous Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined.
Prime members purchased over 175 million items throughout the event. Prime Day was also the biggest event ever for Amazon devices, when comparing two-day periods.
Top-selling deals worldwide were Echo Dot, Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote, and Fire TV Stick 4K with Alexa Voice Remote.
“We want to thank Prime members all around the world. Members purchased millions of Alexa-enabled devices, received tens of millions of dollars in savings by shopping from Whole Foods Market and bought more than $2 billion of products from independent small and medium-sized businesses.”
Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder and CEO
