With an influx of online shopping, more and more Americans are doing their shopping from home. Amazon Prime has made it easier and faster than ever to shop for just about anything and receive it in a couple days. It was no surprise that Amazon anticipated and received a highly successful Black Friday and Cyber Monday this past year. After all, who would want to brave the long lines at major retailers if they could get the same deals from the comfort of their own home? Amazon now reports that this past Cyber Monday raked in the most revenue of any year yet, according to the Hartsburg News.
This past Tuesday, the company reflected on their prosperous holiday season. Over the five days between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday, Amazon sold over 180 million items. This breaks all past records by a long shot. Although the company has not yet revealed the exact amount of revenue they earned this past Christmas season, it will likely be brought to light soon when they conduct their end of the year earning report. This report is set to be made public upon the start of the new year.
