Amazon Prime Day 2018 Was Bigger than Cyber Monday and Black Friday, but Only Globally

The Amazon Prime Day 2018 is history. Amazon touts the records.

Amazon announced today that Prime Day 2018 was the biggest sales day for Amazon in the little book shop's history. Members worldwide purchased more than 100 million products during Prime Day 2018.

"On a day (and a half) with more than one million deals worldwide offered exclusively to Prime members, sales this Prime Day surpassed Cyber Monday, Black Friday and the previous Prime Day, when comparing 36-hour periods, making this once again the biggest shopping event in Amazon history. Prime members worldwide purchased more than 100 million products during this year's Prime Day event," says the statement.

The way I read the whole press-release is that, yes, globally, Prime Day 2018 set a new record. It did though not do that in the United States because of the server issues in the first hours of Prime Day that killed the momentum. On the actual Prime Day, nobody talked about Prime Day anymore or its deals.

Amazon is now a global company, so it doesn't matter in the bottom line if the US sales are not setting a new record. The Prime Day 2018 deals have been great. The Toshiba Fire TV Edition Smart TV is the new star. "

The Toshiba 4K Ultra HD Fire TV Edition (50-inch) and the Toshiba 4K Ultra HD Fire TV Edition (43-inch) are now the best-selling TV deals in Amazon history – together selling over six times as many TVs compared to last year's record-setting Fire TV Edition," according to Amazon.

Amazon revealed the following details about Prime Day 2018 in the United States:

July 17 was the biggest sales day for smart home devices in Amazon history, with over a million devices sold.

Ring had its biggest day ever on Amazon on July 16, with the Ring Video Doorbell Pro selling out.

The Amazon Cloud Cam was the best-selling security camera deal in Amazon history.

For the first time, U.S. Prime members celebrated Prime Day with a week of savings at Whole Foods Market. Members saved millions of dollars at Whole Foods Market with Prime Day deals, of which the best-selling deal was organic strawberries.

Members purchased more than 300,000 Instant Pot 6 Qt 7-in-1 Multi Use and 150,000 LifeStraw Personal Water Filters.

Members stocked up for back-to-school and off-to-college season, purchasing millions of pencils and pens.

Some of the top sellers from Amazon brands, by category, were Stone & Beam Ceramic Geometric Table L Presto! Ultra Soft Toilet Paper; Daily Ritual Women's Jersey Short-Sleeve V-Neck T-Shirt Dress and AmazonBasics Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Skillet.

Amazon Prime Day 2018 is over, but Amazon is having a heart, actually its Alexa. You can still get Prime Day 2018 deals on Amazon devices using Alexa voice shopping. Through Alexa, you still can get the Fire TV for $19.99 and all other Prime Day deals on Amazon devices.
