  • Possible Amazon flub resulted in crazy discounts for Prime Day 2019

It was so successful that Prime Day has returned every year.

Seems like Prime Day didn't turn out to be that good for Amazon as it has discounted a wide range of camera gear for Prime Day this week but it turned out to be the best deal for the photographers instead and might have cost Amazon a hefty amount. Prime members from 18 countries shopped during Prime Day, twice the number of countries in the 2014's inaugural Prime Day event. This year's edition was a bit different from the rest as the online retailer announced weeks before that Prime Day would last 48 hours instead of the usual 36.

On July 15, Amazon signed up more new Prime members than on any other day in company history. Prime members purchased more than 175 million items throughout the event.

Founder and CEO Jeff Bezos expressed Amazon's gratitude. Typically, the retailer cancels these orders after realizing the mistake, however generally lucky bargain hunters receive the products they discovered for the method under market worth. During the two-day event, the e-commerce giant sold 175 million items worldwide, topping the combined results of Black Friday and Cyber Monday at the end of a year ago. "Huge thank you to Amazonians everywhere who made this day possible for customers". Though Amazon 100 million Prime members, there are still shoppers who arent members who are looking for deals without the price tag of a membership program. This year the biggest-selling smart home deals included the iRobot Roomba 960 Robot Vacuum, MyQ Smart Garage Door Opener Chamberlain MYQ-G0301, and the Amazon Smart Plug.

It was also the best Prime Day ever for Kindle devices.

Prime members saved more than one billion dollars throughout Prime Day. The top items were: LifeStraw Personal Water Filter, Instant Pot DUO60, and 23andMe Health + Ancestry kits.
