As packages stream out of warehouses, Amazon has released some figures for Prime Day, as they do every year after the big sales event. While last year’s big achievement was simply surpassing the previous year’s Prime Day in sales, this year’s Prime Day surpassed even last Black Friday and Cyber Monday in sales, making yesterday the biggest sales day ever in Amazon history.
Last Prime Day, the best-selling item was the Amazon Fire TV Stick for $24.99 (37% off), but since Fire TV device’s didn’t go on sale for Prime Day this year in the US, the Amazon Echo Dot at $34.99 (30% off) was the best-selling product of the day across Amazon globally. However, the Fire TV line didn’t stay completely out of the limelight, since the Element 55″ Fire TV Edition television at $399.99 (38% off) was the best-selling TV deal in Amazon history, even though it sold out in under 4 hours.
The Element 55″ Fire TV Edition television deal for Prime Day has now sold out. At nearly 40% off the regular price, the $399.99 deal was too good for many to pass up. While the deal was live, it had a timer counting down until midnight. There is a very slight chance that a second Prime Day Spotlight Deal for the TV could start at midnight PT, with additon units reserved for the actual Prime Day itself. So if you missed out on the deal, try to hold out a few more hours.
Amazon has revealed some of the deals we can expected to see for Prime Day, starting tonight at 6pm PT / 9pm ET. I’ll be hunting down and posting all the best deals I can find all evening tonight and all day tomorrow, so be sure to check back then and check back often. Here are all the deals we know about so far. Read more ›
Amazon has just announced that their third annual Prime Day sales event will be on July 11. However, what’s different this year, instead of deals starting at midnight, deals will start the previous evening on July 10 at 6pm PT / 9pm ET. Prime Day is like Amazon’s own Black Friday where Prime members can take advantage of all-time low prices. Typically, for Amazon’s own hardware, like the Fire TV or Echo line, sale prices on Prime Day are lower than any other sale throughout the year, including Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Many of the “Great” prices listed in my Amazon Device Buyer’s Guide are typically only seen on Prime Day. As always, I’ll literally be spending all day that day continuously posting the best deals as they become available, so be sure to come by the site early and often. Here’s everything you need to know ahead of time about Prime Day this year. Read more ›
