What is Amazon Prime and Is It Worth It In Canada?

Amazon Prime - Worth It In Canada?

Amazon Prime Canada has been a thing now for a few years now and they've just upped their game with the addition of Amazon Prime Video. But the big question, is Amazon Prime Canada worth it?

Short answer: yes. When the average standard shipping cost in Canada is $5, after the free trial, if you order from Amazon.ca at least 12 items per year (and you enjoy 2-day shipping), Amazon Prime Canada is worth it. If you stream online or pay for online data storage for pictures, with Amazon Prime Video and Prime Photos, it's doubly worth it.

Here's a list of frequently asked questions about Amazon Prime Canada:

Is 2-day shipping guaranteed with Amazon Prime Canada?

You bet. If you receive a shipment late, go to Amazon.ca and get into a quick online chat with a friendly Amazon representative. They'll usually offer to extend your Amazon Prime membership by one month or sometimes they'll offer a $5 Amazon.ca credit, for the inconvenience.

    Great article! Helpful with answering all of my questions about Prime. I think I'll try the free month trial :)

    Shipping has become so expensive, I suspect I would save money on AmazonPrime. I think people tend to forget that they buy a lot during Christmas and other special holidays. Taking that into consideration makes a big difference. 

What do you think?
