Amazon Canada has announced that its popular 48-hour Prime Day sale has officially set new sales records.
In the first 24-hours of Prime Day in Canada, Prime members purchased more items than they did Cyber Monday, which is one of the biggest shopping days of the year. Amazon did not release a specific number but surely the 2-day deal bonanza will see millions of products purchased and shipped.
Amazon Canada did note the following items are some of the top sellers:
- Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote
- Echo Dot
- Echo Show 5
- LifeStraw Personal Water Filter
- 23andMe DNA Test
- Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Bulk Candy
Amazon also stated that ‘customers worldwide have purchased millions of Alexa-enabled devices.’ In addition, sellers around the world ‘saw the biggest 24-hour sales day in Amazon history.’
Amazon Prime is $7.99/month CAD (plus applicable taxes), or $79 per year. If you’re not a Prime Member, Amazon Canada is offering a 30-day free trial here. Quebec residents, instead of a free trial, receive an initial 2-month membership for $7.99.
