SEATTLE (Dec. 26) - Amazon.com Inc. said Wednesday its 2007 holiday season was its strongest to date, with Nintendo Wii game systems and the "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" DVD among its top-selling products

The online retailer said it sold about 17 Nintendo Wiis per second when the product was available. The fifth Harry Potter movie led DVD sales, followed by "Planet Earth: The Complete BBC Series" and "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End."

Other products that sold well included Garmin GPS systems, the Apple MacBook and KitchenAid stand mixers.

I love Amazon. What's better than sitting in your toasty warm P.J.'s, with a cup of coffee, or a beer at 1 AM for a great deal!!

We should look at our Amazon thread from 12/10 and see how much we contributed to those sales, lol. Amazon has done an OUTSTANDING job coming through for everyone this year. I give their customer service an A+.

I agree they have been the best this year when other had been lossing my packages and on hold for hours amazon was right there and I replaced all of my lost stuff with them because they can be counted on!

My total shopping can be broken down in: Amazon - 85% Staples.com - 10% Leapfrog.com - 5% :D I am onto finding 2 more people to sign up for Prime.
