The notable devices, that sold highly, during the Prime Days were the Alexa-enabled gadgets.  

“Members purchased millions of Alexa-enabled devices, received tens of millions of dollars in savings by shopping from Whole Foods Market and bought more than $2 billion of products from independent small and medium-sized businesses. Huge thank you to Amazonians everywhere who made this day possible for customers,” added Bezos. 

Though there have been no specific sales figures revealed by Amazon as of now, analysts have estimated this number to lie in the $6 billion range. This is huge considering the fact that Amazon’s Prime Service has turned out to be popular and in countries like India, subscribers could also watch streams of all their favourite movies in HD quality.
