Amazon caps biggest holiday season sales ever
The U.S. economic growth seems to be still alive and kicking (despite major setbacks highlighted by the trade dispute against China) as Amazon posts a record-breaking holiday season sales thus far.
Amazon reported its top-sellers this holiday season included the Echo Dot, Fire TV Stick and Echo Show 5. Amazon’s third-party products helped to its cause as they were sold way more this 2019 than last year. It reported a double-digit percentage of third-party product sales increase.
LOL Surprise Glitter Globe Doll Winter Disco Series with Glitter Hair, iRobot’s Roomba 675 vacuum, and Instant Pot Duo80 pressure cooker were among the most popular sold products in Amazon.
John Grisham’s “The Guardians” was hailed as the best-selling book during the holidays. “Home Alone” was the most-searched holiday movie on Fire TV, and Mariah Carey’s “All I want for Christmas is You” has been the most-played song on Amazon Music since late November.
Meanwhile, Amazon’s stock increased by 1% on Thursday.
