[Last Day] Best Prime Day VR Gaming Deals So Far

Over a two day period, customers bought twice as many Ring and Blink devices as they did during the event a year ago too.

The lowest we've seen them new is 47% off, but at $140 these now go lower than Apple's AirPods even, and are the lowest offer so far for a new pair of these nice cans you can relax to. "Huge thank you to Amazonians everywhere who made this day possible for customers", Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said in a statement.

Amazon Prime Day is proving to be a beneficial day for other large retailers in the United States.

The protests weren't the only issues to mar Prime Day. Last year, according to Adobe, niche retailers saw a decrease in revenue on Prime Day.

Some other eye-popping category numbers from Amazon: Over the two days Prime members purchased more than 100,000 lunchboxes (it seems lots of kids still use these), 100,000 laptops, 200,000 TVs, 300,000 headphones, 350,000 luxury beauty products, 400,000 pet products, 650,000 household cleaning supplies and more than one million toys. "But in the USA, there aren't really restrictions on what you can do with this kind of data".

Nearly 18,000 fulfillment workers joined a private Facebook group to gripe about long Prime Day shifts. The company did have site stumbles previous year with periods of downtime and unavailability - but there were plenty of cute Amazonian dogs to mollify angry customers. The standard Amazon Fire TV Stick is also on sale today, at just $14.99. He said Prime Days and spinoff sales are still very new to the retail world and many small business owners can't afford to slash prices as much as box stores can. Target's two-day sale ends Tuesday night and Walmart's sale continues until Wednesday. Their data finds that email campaigns brought in a 7% increase in revenue and that brands delivering a good email experience saw a 50% revenue increase. According to Adobe Analytics, Prime Day 2019 marks only the third time ecommerce has pushed past the $2 billion, single-day-sales make outside of the holiday season. Day one of Prime Day was a 64% gain compared to a typical Monday.
