If you are tired of hearing about Amazon Prime Day, well, put your hands over your ears because there are more on the way.
The e-retail giant's self-created holiday Tuesday generated 60 percent more sales globally than its inaugural Amazon Prime Day in 2015. In the U.S., year-over-year sales were up 50 percent, according to the Seattle-based company.
What's more, consider how successful a day it was for robots alone: Amazon Prime members purchased more than 23,000 iRobot Roombas, the autonomous robotic vacuum cleaners.
So, it's not surprising that Greg Greeley, vp of Amazon Prime, said in a statement Wednesday morning, "After yesterday's results, we'll definitely be doing this again."
Here are some of the highlights Amazon provided:
- Globally, more than 2 million toys and more than 1 million pairs of shoes were bought.
- More than 90,000 TVs were scooped up worldwide.
- More than 1 million international customers used the Amazon app for the first time.
- In the U.S., it was Amazon Echo's biggest day yet, beating the previous best performance by two-and-a-half times in terms of sales.
- Cascade, Charmin and Tide were the most popular branded Amazon Dash button brands.
- More than 14,000 Lenovo laptops were sold.
