Amazon’s latest milestone: 150 million Prime members
NEW YORK — It was another prime Christmas for Amazon. The online retailer says it now has more than 150 million Prime members, who pay $119 a year for faster shipping and other perks. That’s up 50% from the last time Amazon disclosed the number in 2018. It also beats Netflix, which has 139 million members who pay to stream movies and TV shows. And its financial results during the busy holiday shopping season were far better than Wall Street analysts expected. Shares of Amazon. com Inc. soared 10% in after-hours trading Thursday.
