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,” Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder and CEO, said in a statement on Thursday.

“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.”
