Prime Day Once Again Sets Records For Amazon

"Extending Prime Day to 36 hours this year allowed us to further reward members with unbeatable deals, access to exclusive new products and unforgettable experiences that highlight the many benefits of a Prime membership", Amit Agarwal, country head, Amazon India said in a statement.

Amazon is hoping customers don't see any more dogs, after early problems on Prime Day meant people trying to shop got only images of the cute canines delivering an apologetic message.

There's 3 months of KindleUnlimited for $0.99, 3 free audiobooks from Audible and free games each day in the run up to July 16 and beyond from Twitch Prime. Hopefully, the website will be able to recover quickly so customers can enjoy the deals without frustration. That's a huge discount as Amazon Music Unlimited streaming is usually £9.99 a month, or £7.99 a month for Amazon Prime members. And without saying how many, it says it also signed up more new Prime members on July 16 than any day in its history. Shoppers have lots of options, as many other chains have offered sales and promotions to try to capitalize on the Prime Day spending.

Prime Day also lasts six hours longer than past year and is four new countries.

The top-selling items in the US for Prime Day were the Instant Pot 6-Quart 7-in-1 Multi-Use, 23 and Me DNA Test and LifeStraw Personal Water Filter.
