In all 250 companies are joining in the summer cyber sale buzz, up from 194 a year ago. Amazon enrolled more new Prime members on July 15 than on any previous day in company history, and nearly as many on July 16, making those the two biggest days ever for member signups, the company maintained. This year's Prime Day also was shown to be the biggest sales event ever for eero (home wi-fi system), as six-times as many devices were sold than in any previous sales event.
The Prime service - which costs $119 in the United States - has been a key driver of revenue for Amazon, bringing more consumers into its ecosystem with perks such as free shipping and streaming video and music.
In response to Prime Day, retail competitors, including Target, launched sales and promotions ahead of Prime Day and during Prime Day. Large US retailers - those with $1 billion or more in annual sales - saw a 64 percent spike in online sales on July 15 compared to a typical Monday according to data from Adobe Analytics.
