Amazon Cyber Monday 2017: Biggest Shopping Day in Company History


Amazon has announced Cyber Monday 2017 was the company’s “single biggest shopping day ever”, eclipsing Prime Day 2017. Also, from American Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday, customers helped set a record for small business sales, with almost 140 million items sold.

“Amazon customers shopped at record levels during the Turkey 5, ordering hundreds of millions of products from toys to fashion to electronics and Amazon devices,” stated Jeff Wilke, CEO Worldwide Consumer, in a statement.

What did you buy on Black Friday and Cyber Monday from Amazon?


  • Olivier

    Nothing purchased on Amazon during this weekend.

  • MathieuM

    Was disappointed to not find any deals on Qi wireless charging stands (not interested in the flat mat versions). Oh well…fingers crossed for Boxing Day!

  • Olley

    I feel that this year’s deals were much better than they were in 2015 and 16. More price worthy stuff to get.

  • mcfilmmakers

    The deals were absolute garbage. They were worse than last year by far and last year was a bad year to begin with

  • SOB

    All I saw on Amazon was junk.
