“Tens of millions of members around the world enjoy the many benefits included with Prime, and in fact, more new paid members joined Prime worldwide this year than any previous year,” said Greg Greeley, Vice President, Amazon Prime. “In 2017, more than five billion items worldwide shipped with Prime and members used digital benefits like Prime Video, Prime Music and Prime Reading more than ever before.”

The Echo Dot and the Fire TV Stick were dubbed as Amazon’s best devices of the year, listing as the best selling products to Prime customers within the US. Further, The Grand Tour was named the best of Prime Video, whilst Believer by Imagine Dragons and The Handmaid’s Tale topped the Prime Music and Prime Reading categories respectively.
