Amazon may be looking to offer a new service for its Prime members. Bloomberg News is reporting Amazon is in early talks with wireless companies to offer mobile phone plans for its U.S. Prime members. Yahoo Finance Tech Editor Dan Howley explains why Amazon may want to expand its Prime offerings.
Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) rose to prominence on the back of its now sprawling e-commerce business, which has become not only the largest digital retailer in the U.S., but also the world. While not all of its ventures have been successful, Amazon's track record has been sufficient to strike fear into the hearts of those it might rival. Oftentimes, stocks will fall at the mere prospect of having to compete with the company -- a well-documented phenomenon known as "the Amazon effect."
Amazon (AMZN) closed at $124.25 in the latest trading session, marking a +1.21% move from the prior day.
Telecom stocks including AT&T (NYSE: T), Verizon (NYSE: VZ), and T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) were all pulling back Friday on some surprising news. According to Bloomberg, Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) is considering entering the wireless market, as it's held discussions about offering nationwide mobile phone service to Prime members, either for free or at a discount. Bloomberg said that Amazon is negotiating with Verizon, T-Mobile, and Dish Network (NASDAQ: DISH) to get a low wholesale price for service that it could then turn around and offer to Prime members for $10 a month or even free as an incentive to join and stick with the membership program.
Shares of Dish Network (NASDAQ: DISH) are up 17.1% as of 2:02 p.m. ET Friday in response to reports that Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) is considering a partnership with the company that could offer low-cost or no-cost wireless service to Amazon Prime subscribers. The same possibility was floated by The Wall Street Journal a little over a week ago. Perpetually looking for ways to attract and retain Prime subscribers (who tend to spend more at Amazon.com than non-Prime members), Amazon offers a suite of digital offerings like on-demand video, audiobooks, discounted restaurant delivery, and free shipping on most items ordered online.
