Amazon Prime Day continues to get bigger and longer with each year that passes, and Amazon has just announced that Prime Day 2019 was its biggest event ever. In fact, Prime Day 2019 was so large that it surpassed Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2018 combined, with more than 175 million items being purchased ranging from Amazon's own hardware to groceries and everything in between.
The top-selling worldwide deals include:
Echo Dot Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote Fire TV Stick 4K With Alexa Voice Remote
That of course comes at no surprise to anyone. In addition, some of the top-selling smart home products were the iRobot Roomba 690 robovac, MyQ smart garage opener, and Amazon Smart Plug. The big discounts on Ring and Blink devices led to twice as many sales this year than Amazon saw last year, and it was also the biggest sales days ever for things like the Echo Show 5, Fire 7 tablet, Kindle devices, and the Fire Edition TVs.
By region, there were some other popular products. This year people from 18 different countries took advantage of Prime Day savings, which doubles what Amazon saw last year. These include:

Unsurprisingly, Amazon's concert that was headlined by Taylor Swift was quite successful with millions of people who tuned in to stream it. Odds are we will see something similar, if not a bigger version of this again next year.
