The company said it sold millions of devices that work on the Alexa voice-activated platform, with top-sellers including the Fire TV Stick streaming device with an Alexa Voice remote and the Echo Dot voice-activated speaker.

Shoppers, meanwhile, have lots of sales to choose from as other retailers offer promotions to try to take a share of the spending.

Prime Members can get a sneak peek at upcoming deals by visiting the Prime Day landing page. But it's not too bad because right now the Cube is down to $89.99, which is the same price Amazon offered to Prime members willing to pre-order it back in June. However, since this is an Amazon Prime Day deal, you'll actually get nine months' worth of membership for that price.

Amazon Prime Day is already off to a roaring start, despite a few bumps in the road.

That not only gets you Nintendo's terrific little hybrid console, but also the phenomenal Super Mario Odyssey.

"I'm candidly shocked that they're not prepared for the traffic", Forrester analyst Sucharita Kodali told Bloomberg. The retail think tank estimated that Amazon could earn as much as $3.4 billion this year, during its extended 36-hour sale (last year's only lasted for 24 hours). "No Prime Day specials at the store". For Prime Day, though, Amazon is offering Bose QuietComfort 25s, a pair of wired, noise-canceling cans that normally go for about $200, for just $125. Workers in Spain are out on a three-day strike, meanwhile, in Poland they are staging a work to rule, Verdi said.

Germany is the company's second biggest market after the US.

This week's strikes have also inspired widespread calls for shopper boycotts on social media platforms such as Twitter. Some 49.1 percent of online retail sales go through the e-commerce giant, eMarketer found, up from 43.5 percent previous year.

Prime Day, created by Amazon.com Inc.in 2015 to mark its 20th anniversary, has inspired other e-commerce companies to invent their own shopping holidays.
