Amazon Prime has revealed its 2018 bestsellers. Perhaps not surprisingly, Amazon’s own Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote was the best-selling product overall. Earbud headphones by Panasonic were also popular. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel was the most awarded show, with Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan and Homecoming amongst the most binged. Justin Timberlake topped the music chart.

Amazon said that the Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote was the most purchased item on its Prime service during 2018.  Another Amazon product, the Echo Dot, was in second place. ErgoFit In-Ear Earbuds Headphones, which are compatible with the iPhone, were also one of the purchased items in the electronics category.

The firm said that the two of the most binged Prime Original series included Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan which starred John Krasinski, and Homecoming, which starred Julia Roberts. Amazon said that mystery novels were the most popular among its customers. Marvel’s Black Panther was the most enjoyed comic-to-movie adaptation on Prime Reading.

Justin Timberlake led the list of the most listened to artists on Amazon Music. His album Man of the Woods was one of the most streamed albums on the service, along with Camila by Camila Cabello, Astroworld by Travis Scott and Mitchell Tenpenny EP by Mitchell Tenpenny.

How Quick Can I Get it?

Amazon Prime is now available in 17 countries and has over 100 million subscribers. It gives users access to deliveries in one day, or, in some cases, faster than one day. Indeed, the fastest delivery apparently happened in just 8 minutes. The speedily received item was a Hartz Home Protection Lavender Scent Odor-Eliminating Gel Dog Pads, delivered to a customer in Berkley, California.

Other customers received items in just 9 minutes. These included a TriggerPoint Foam Massage Ball and Excedrin Migraine Caplets to a customer in Los Angeles. A Nintendo SNES Classic was delivered to a customer in Kirkland, WA in that time too. Someone thirsty in Seattle also received their La Crema Pinot Noir in 9 minutes.

In a blogpost revealing the top-rated items, Cem Sibay, Vice President, Amazon Prime said: “Prime members worldwide ordered more than two billion products for one-day delivery or faster in the last year, which is pretty amazing.”
