“We’ve been working on preparing for this year’s Prime Day since essentially last year’s Prime Day [was] over," Sibay told FOX Business’ Stuart Varney on Friday. "So essentially we’re ready. We’ve been working very hard."
Despite a minor tech glitch that temporarily kept shoppers from making any purchases last year during Prime Day, the e-commerce giant still raked in a record $3.5 billion in sales.
Although Sibay declined to disclose the company’s forecasts for this year's Prime Day sales, he said: “we are expecting a record-breaking year again.”
