Started in 2015 to celebrate Amazon’s 20th birthday, Amazon Prime Day has grown into a holiday that rivals Black Friday & Cyber Monday in the U.S., and even Singles Day in China. From relatively humble beginnings, Amazon Prime Day is now the biggest single day of shopping in the U.S. with more than 100 million products sold in recent years’ sales.
Last year, 17 countries participated in the event and the tally was more than 100 million items ordered, or more than 771 items per second of the 36-hour event. That year, the Fire TV Stick, and the Echo Dot were the biggest sellers among Amazon products. Customers ordered more than 5 million toys, beauty products, PCs and accessories, apparel, and kitchen products. Millions of dollars were saved at the newly acquired Whole Foods as part of the Prime Day deals and more than 300,000 Instant Pots were sold. What’s more, small and medium businesses clocked more than $1.5 billion in sales.
Prime Day is also growing in terms of length, having steadily increased from 24 hours of savings, to 30 hours, then 36 hours, and now a full 48 hours of epic deals.
