Amazon customers were buying stuff at a rate of 398 products per second during yesterday's Prime Day event (AMZN)
People were quick to poke fun at some of the products on sale during Amazon's "Prime Day" shopping event — like krill oil and tubs of lube — but CEO Jeff Bezos is the one laughing now. The company says it sold 18% more units during yesterday's sale than on Black Friday 2014. That's particularly striking because Prime Day was only eligible for people who signed up for its $99-a-year members only shopping club, though the company offered 30-day free trials.
