What did they buy? The most popular items sold on Amazon Prime Day

Apparently, Amazon.com’s 150 million Prime members are still making their home. The most popular items sold on Amazon Prime Day, which finished its two-day run on Tuesday (that was June 21-22) were Amazon’s signature entertainment devices.

The online retail giant reported that a record number of Amazon Fire TVs from Insignia and Toshiba were sold on Prime Day and the two weeks leading up to it.

Amazon devices being a hot community on Amazon Prime Day isn’t new, but setting a record is (Amazon hasn’t released any numbers). Prices are dropping, in part because buying an Amazon device puts you in Amazon’s sweet spot. The company may get more money from you if you have to keep paying for a Prime subscription (currently $ 119 per year) and products to support your device (Prime movies billed for your Fire TV, digital playback material. for your new Kindle or Amazon Fire tablet).

Surpassing TV sales, the Fire TV Stick 4K with Alexa Voice Remote was Amazon’s most popular item sold on Amazon Prime Day, the company reported.

Tablets also prevailed. Amazon said Prime Day customers have purchased “hundreds of thousands” of Amazon Fire tablets as well as Fire Kids tablets. These included the new Fire HD 10 tablet, the seasoned Fire HD 8 tablet, and the Fire HD 8 Kids tablet.

More than 250 million products have been sold globally on Amazon Prime Day, the company said.

Other top-selling products in the US for Amazon Prime Day 2021 include the Waterpik Electric Water Flosser, Orgain Organic Plant-Based Protein Powder, 23andMe Health DNA Test, iRobot Roomba 692 Robot Vacuum, and the Instant Pot Duo Plus 6 Quart 9-in-1 Pressure Cook.

And parents probably relieved that in-person learning resumes in the next school year were heavy on back-to-school shopping for Amazon Prime Day 2021.

Amazon reports that Amazon Prime members around the world have purchased 1 million tablets, 1 million headphones, 600,000 backpacks, 240,000 laptops, 220,000 Crayola products, and 40,000 calculators. Amazon kept one to account for its Prime Day profits.
