Amazon Prime members purchased over 175 million items during Prime Day, but the company did not disclose specific sales revenues. Amazon did note that “Prime members worldwide saved more than one billion dollars throughout Prime Day.”

Globally, some of the top items purchased were the Echo Dot, Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote, Fire TV Stick 4K with Alexa Voice Remote, iRobot Roomba 690 Robot Vacuum, Amazon Smart Plug, Echo Show and Echo Show 5.
