Did you shop on Cyber Monday? Given how many deals our team shared yesterday, I'm willing to bet there was at least something that piqued your interest. According to Amazon, shoppers all over the world ordered hundreds of millions of products between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday. The day was Amazon's single biggest shopping day in history based on the sheer number of items ordered.
Some of the top deals listed by Amazon included the Echo Dot, which dropped to $22 for the weekend and remains at that price if you happened to miss out, and the Fire TV Stick 4K, which was half off its regular price. Unfortunately that deal has expired. In toys, the top purchases were the Lego Star Wars Darth Vader Castle, the Disney Frozen 2 edition of Monopoly, and Hasbro games. All of these toys were featured in Amazon daily roundups on Cyber Monday, which we covered. It's a good example of why you should do some early shopping on days lilke these because those deals were available as early as 3 a.m. Eastern.
Alexa, let's go!
Amazon's most popular smart speaker is going to get a lot more popular at this price point. Use the Echo Dot to talk to Alexa, control your smart home with your voice, play music, or set up an intercom between Echo Dots throughout the home.
$49.00 $27 off
Some of the other best sellers include the Instant Pot Duo80, which was down to a ridiculous low of $64.99 yesterday, the 23andMe DNA kit that was another featured deal on Amazon and is going strong at the $79 deal price, and the iRobot Roomba 675 robot vacuum, which is still on sale for a low price of $199.99.
Amazon also mentioned the Champion Men's Powerblend Fleece Pullover Hoodie was a big seller in Fashion. The discount continues if you're interested. Just clip the on-page coupon available on several sizes from Small to XXL and in several colors.
Millions more Amazon devices were purchased this year versus the same time last year, but that's because millions more of these devices were down to crazy low prices. The Amazon Kindle hit a new low and so did the Fire 7 tablets that were down to just $30. The Wemo Mini smart plug was also really popular for smart home shoppers. That's because it was down to a super low price of just $16.
Black Friday and Cyber Monday pushed Amazon to its limits, and we saw some of the best value we've ever seen even though we've been covering these events for years. Hopefully, you saved on some items you really wanted and got some of that holiday shopping done.
