The chance to get two-day free shipping on Amazon is apparently a bigger driver of Amazon Prime subscriptions in the U.S. than the unlimited streaming of TV shows and movies that comes along with the service.

The company found also that of those who have subscribed to Amazon Prime, more said they used Netflix (63%) in the previous month than said they used Prime Instant Video (59%), though that difference is within the margin of error.
