Amazon Prime Day, the two-day global shopping event that sets the internet ablaze in online deals, has come and gone, and you all did a lot of shopping. 

Amazon was quick to report its top-selling items from the 2020 event, and that its members saved over $1.4 billion dollars. BILLION. 

It also noted that it marked the two biggest days ever for third-party sellers overall, nearly all of whom are small and medium-sized businesses. Overall, Amazon was primed to generate almost $10 billion dollars in sales, according to Business Insider

Unsurprisingly, the Echo Dot 3 was the most popular item purchased on Prime Day around the world. Amazon's smart home assistant was at one of its lowest prices yet at $18.99/ £18.99, most likely to make way for the next-gen, Echo Dot 4

Electronics like Fire TVs, Bose QuietComfort 35 (Series II) Wireless Headphones, and Fitbit Versa 2 Smartwatch were also called out as strong performers. 

So what rounded out the top-sellers from Amazon Prime Day 2020? Check them out, below. You can even shop them if you're bummed you missed the sale, or add them to your holiday wishlists if you feel your wallets took a hit the last few days. Black Friday deals will be here before you know it.
