Lets face it, we love a good bargain and apparently so do most Canadians.
We just received a press release from Amazon Canada and the stats are quite impressive.
Amazon announced that Cyber Monday was once again the single biggest shopping day in the company’s history, selling more products worldwide than any other day.
Black Friday also proved to be popular with Canadians looking for a great deal, with the all-new Echo Dot, Fire TV Stick 4K with all-new Alexa Voice Remote, L.O.L. Surprise! Dolls Holiday Series Surprise, and Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 Multi-Use Programmable Pressure Cooker – 6 Quart as the best-selling products across Amazon.ca.
For Cyber Monday, Canadians took advantage of deals on AncestryDNA: Genetic Testing Ethnicity and the very popular Nintendo Switch Console making them top-selling items. In addition, many of the top-selling Black Friday products such as the all-new Echo Dot, Fire TV Stick 4K with all-new Alexa Voice Remote and the Instant Pot Duo Plus 9-in-1 Multi-Use Programmable Pressure Cooker – 6 Quart continued to be top-sellers.
Here’s how Canadian shoppers did globally:
- Shoppers on Amazon purchased a record number of Amazon devices globally this past weekend, with millions of devices sold worldwide
- Amazon customers worldwide ordered more than 18 million toys and more than 13 million fashion items on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, combined
- Sales by small and medium-sized businesses worldwide grew more than 20 per cent on Black Friday year-over-year
Did you take part in the shopping deals this past weekend? I know we bought a lot of gift items for neighbours and toys for our kids on Amazon.ca.
