Chances are that you bought something on Amazon this weekend; the online retailer had plenty of enticing Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals across technology, toys, and home goods. So many people took advantage of the savings on Cyber Monday that, as far as the number of items sold, the retailer had its “single biggest shopping day.”
Black Friday was a huge success, as well as the company broke its own sales record. Amazon says that it sold “hundreds of millions” of products between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday, and while that’s a bit vague, it’s impressive.
Amazon says that the top-selling categories worldwide for the timeframe include toys, home, fashion and health and personal care. In the US, the best selling items on Black Friday included Amazon’s own Echo Dot and Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote, Play-Doh Sweet Shoppe Cookie Creations, Keurig K-Cafe Coffee Maker and LEGO City Ambulance Helicopter Kit.
Amazon is used to breaking its own records. This happens almost every Prime Day after all, as well as Black Friday or Cyber Monday. This volume of sales is what has keeps the company on top year after year. We likely all bought something. I know I did.
