Amazon's Happy Holiday: Over 4 Million Try Prime During A Single Week

That seems par for course these days, which itself is pretty remarkable.

More than 6,000 trailers and 32 Amazon Air planes were active in the USA during the holiday season.

Over 4M people started Prime trials (free or paid) in one week. Prime ($99 per year in the U.S.) offers free shipping on millions of items, as well as access to Prime Video and Prime Music and other perks.

The lower cost Echo Dot topped Devices in sales and was the best-selling product from any manufacturer on Amazon.

Many consumers feel that they get a good value by spending $99 a year for a Amazon Prime membership.

Across North America and the Europe, associates at 10 fulfillment centers picked, packed, and shipped more than one million customer packages in a single day.

Amazon said 2017 was its biggest holiday season with customers all around the world shopping at record levels. "We look forward to another great year ahead".

Since Thanksgiving, over a billion items were ordered from Amazon. The most popular item viewed with AR view throughout this holiday season was a black chair with ottoman.

The most requested song from Alexa customers this holiday season was "Jingle Bells".

Amazon, established in 1994, is a top American electronic commerce and cloud computing company based in Seattle, Washington state on the USA west coast.

Alexa customers asked for tens of millions of jokes this holiday season. Compared to last year's holiday season, Amazon sold "millions more" Amazon devices during this year's holiday season. Earlier today, the online retailing giant issued a press release noting that the 2017 holiday shopping season was its biggest yet. Amazon saw an impressive 70 percent uptick in customers around the world shopping on its mobile app.

"The more that Amazon cannot just get its Echo devices out there, but get its Alexa technology embedded in a variety of things, including cars, that'll be the long-term win", Mark Mahaney told CNBC's "Squawk Alley" on Tuesday.
