Amazon Prime Day 2018: Time, Deals on Computers, Kindles, Headphones

Jeff Bezos

In spite of the ongoing glitches Amazon shoppers experienced during this week's Prime Day event, Amazon reports this year's Prime Day was its biggest shopping day ever.

Prime Day also helped the company expand its membership reach. Almost every device Amazon makes is now available at a deep discount, and you'll find every single one of them below.

Amazon's response to shoppers also left a lot to be desired.

"We had a ruff start", Amazon said. The site-wide sales officially kick off at 3 p.m. EDT Monday and last through Tuesday, though Amazon devices like the Echo and Kindle were on sale as of 3 a.m. EDT, along with other products.

Looking for more? Step right this way, sir/madam.

Amazon goes to the dogs after Prime Day downtime

Amazon is hoping customers don't see any more dogs, after early problems on Prime Day meant people trying to shop got only images of cute canines delivering an apologetic message.

"The Toshiba 4K Ultra HD Fire TV Edition (50-inch) and the Toshiba 4K Ultra HD Fire TV Edition (43-inch) are now the best-selling TV deals in Amazon history - together selling over six times as many TVs compared to last year's record-setting Fire TV Edition", according to Amazon. "Extending Prime Day to 36 hours this year allowed us to further reward members with unbeatable deals, access to exclusive new products and unforgettable experiences that highlight the many benefits of a Prime membership", Amazon India head Amit Agarwal said in a statement.

"Prime Day deals continue until midnight ... across all 23 categories, from toys and gaming consoles, to fashion and books, with deep discounts continuing throughout the day". Shoppers were expected to spend $3.4 billion on Amazon during the promotion, up more than 40 percent from last year's Prime Day, according to Coresight Research. About an hour later, website issues, for the most part, subsided although some still reported issues with the search functions for several more hours. "The best deals on Amazon during Prime Day are going to be private label products", he said.

The worldwide bestsellers were the Fire TV Stick and the Echo Dot, coincidentally some of the lower priced Amazon devices at $19.99 and $29.99 respectively. For this prime day alone, these businesses made over $1 Billion in sales. Amazon offers the Prime free-shipping program (which includes other perks like Prime Video) in 17 countries: the U.S., Canada, U.K., Spain, Mexico, Japan, Italy, India, Germany, Austria, France, Belgium, China, the Netherlands, Singapore, Luxembourg, and Australia.
