Today, Amazon announced their Quarter 4 financial results, showing a 21% jump to $87.4 billion for the final quarter of 2019. That number is up from $72.4 billion year over year.
For all of 2019, net sales increased 20% to $280.5 billion, compared with $232.9 billion in 2018.
Earlier this month, we reported that Amazon’s Fire TV now has 40 million active users. Amazon announced that number again in their report, noting that Amazon announced the new Fire TV Edition at CES 2020, which includes a set of tools, features, and services that make it even easier for developers, operators, device makers, and manufacturers to integrate Fire TV into their products.
“Prime membership continues to get better for customers year after year. And customers are responding — more people joined
Prime this quarter than ever before, and we now have over 150 million paid Prime members around the world,” said Jeff Bezos,
Amazon founder and CEO. “We’ve made Prime delivery faster — the number of items delivered to U.S. customers with
Prime’s free one-day and same-day delivery more than quadrupled this quarter compared to last year. Members now have free
two-hour grocery delivery from Amazon Fresh and Whole Foods Market in more than 2,000 U.S. cities and towns. Prime
members watched double the hours of original movies and TV shows on Prime Video this quarter compared to last year, and
Amazon Originals received a record 88 nominations and 26 wins at major awards shows. A huge thank you to teams across
Amazon for their dedicated work to build, innovate, and deliver for customers this holiday.”
