"Every year it seems as if the excitement grows and grows,” she told Inside Edition. “It just goes to show the power of Amazon. Amazon is the new Hallmark. It can get us to buy on a day they created.”
The biggest sellers included the Amazon Echo Dot, the puck-like device works as a personal assistant. Thousands were sold every minute.
A 55-inch 4K Ultra HD smart TV from Element was also a major seller, as its price was slashed from $650 to $399.99 for the sale.
