With that disclaimer out of the way, Amazon has a vested interest in increasing the ranks of Prime subscribers.

While the multitude of items in the category muddies the water considerably, it is likely that Prime is the largest single contributor. His estimate of 60 million Prime members was derived from Cowen's survey of 2,500 consumers.
