Amazon Prime Day sets new record

Amazon Prime Day 2018: Best deals so far including TVs, Fitbit and Echo Show

Alongside the ability to shop the Prime Day sale, Prime subscribers receive unlimited same day delivery on thousands of eligible items as well as a vast selection of movies, shows and music to browse and enjoy through Prime Music and Prime Video.

Prime Day is Amazon's annual sales extravaganza.

Like any other holiday, Amazon Prime Day brings with it stressors (as well as delights).

Amazon India on Wednesday said that its main product categories saw strong sales growth during the Prime Day event, while it added more new members to its subscription programme than in any other week. "All of this was made possible because of our many valued associates - the global team that continues to make Prime Day bigger and better".

The website-failure tracking downdetector.com notes it received 21,534 reports of Amazon being down.

PRIVATE LABEL PUSH: Amazon has been building its own brands, and it'll be offering deals on those, especially its clothing brands, analysts have said.

Amazon said it was resolving the glitches and in a tweet Tuesday lauded Prime Day growth in the first ten hours compared to previous year. The "Dogs of Amazon" photos were so popular that #DogsofAmazon began trending on Twitter - turning what could have been a Prime Day nightmare into a PR win for the company.

Conversions increased: This was the main driver of retailers' increased revenue for Prime Day 2018.

Shoppers clicking on many Prime Day links Monday got only an abashed-looking dog with the words, "Uh-oh". This year Prime Day 2018 kicks off at noon Pacific Time (3pm ET) on Monday, July 16. As of the time of publishing, #primedayfail is now trending on Twitter.

Consumers' familiarity with Prime Day: Adobe surveyed 1,000 USA consumers, revealing that 32% don't know about Prime Day and another 23% don't shop on it. It was also hoping parents would use the deals event to jump start back-to-school shopping. Plus, the day itself is consumed by a bunch of joyous online shopping, which is pretty basically a communal activity since we're all doing the same thing at the same time.

Check out all of Amazon's device deals below. "Prime Day has turned into a huge opportunity for all online retailers", said Taylor Schreiner, director of Adobe Digital Insights. Apart from saying there were 100 million products sold, the company focused on factoids while giving few actual sales numbers in the announcement, and provided none that would allow for meaningful comparisons to years past. Starting at midday Monday July 16 and ending a midnight Tuesday July 17, one million products will be discounted over the next 36 hours.

The glitches had some Amazon Prime customers threatening to quit the premium service.

Whole Foods, included for the first time in Prime Day, figured prominently into the strategy, with members who spent $10 in stores getting $10 to spend on Amazon for Prime Day.
