“We’re focused on making this holiday season more convenient than ever for our customers, especially given how short this holiday shopping season will be,” said Jeff Wilke, CEO Worldwide Consumer, Amazon. “We are thrilled that customers continue to come to Amazon in record numbers to discover what they need and want for the holidays. Thank you to our customers and employees all around the world for making this holiday shopping weekend the best yet.”
According to Amazon the Echo Dot and Fire TV Stick 4K were the best selling products on Amazon’s stores around the world. Other popular items included the Instant Pot Duo80 – 8 Quart, 23andMe Health + Ancestry Service: Personal Genetic DNA Test, L.O.L. Surprise! Winter Disco Bigger Surprise and iRobot Roomba 675 Robot Vacuum. On Cyber Monday other popular items included Play-Doh Sweet Shoppe Cookie Creations, Keurig K-Cafe Coffee Maker and LEGO City Ambulance Helicopter 60179 Building Kit.
According to Amazon, they sold over 25 million home items. Amazon says they sold more toys on Black Friday and Cyber Monday than ever before with numbers landing in the tens of millions. Amazon sold over four million beauty products on Cyber Monday.
It is important to note that these numbers for Amazon.com only, but these are extremely impressive numbers. Sadly Amazon did not disclose exact sale numbers for the Fire TV Stick 4K. However, the sale does seem to have been very successful as Amazon currently says the Fire TV Stick 4K is out of stock until after Christmas 2019.
