If you have done any amount of online shopping and generally haven't been living under a rock, then you have no doubt heard about Amazon. As the quintessential online marketplace, the site is a shopper's (and seller's!) paradise, offering a wide range of products that are available both from the company's own warehouses and through approved third-party merchants that are authorized to sell through Amazon's platform.
It might be hard to believe, but Amazon started out as a small online book business that expanded across borders and retail categories. Despite offering a much broader selection of items, Amazon.com and Amazon.ca are still popular destinations for books of all kinds, including: Kids Books, Kindle Books, French Books and Kindle Books in French. Amazon books are available both through Amazon's own fulfillment centres and through external sellers that sometimes offer cheaper alternatives, including used books (typically in very good condition).
Products are usually competitively priced with other popular Canadian stores. In the rare cases that the price isn't identical to that of competitors or is higher, chances are good that the price will indeed drop within a couple of hours (especially if you visit another store online and then come back to Amazon's).
Over the years, Amazon has taken the world by storm with a variety of new products, services and innovations. Perhaps the most notable of those is the Amazon Kindle reader - a device that lets users purchase, download and read books, magazines and have access to other digital media. Amazon.ca has a dedicated shopping section exclusively for Kindle products, which includes both the device itself, as well as a long list of available e-book titles and a selection of Kindle apps.
If you happen to shop at Amazon.ca often, you may have considered joining Amazon.ca Prime. The upgraded service has several advantages, including free two-day shipping, unlimited photo storage on your Amazon.ca account and access to exclusive deals and shopping events. Joining usually entitles you to a free trial period, after which point the service costs about $80 per year.
NOTE: Because not all Amazon products are sold directly by Amazon.ca, the two-day free shipping offer will not be available for all products, even if you're an Amazon Prime subscriber.
This is yet another Amazon.ca feature that may be quite advantageous for those who shop at Amazon.ca on a regular basis. The Amazon.ca credit card earns Amazon shoppers 2% cash back on every $1 spent at Amazon.ca and 1% cash back on every loonie spent elsewhere. Every time the rewards reach $20, a credit is automatically applied to the card. Sound like a good deal? Be sure to read about any additional Amazon.ca visa promos on the Amazon website.
From their daily deals to their warehouse bargains, there are plenty of ways to shave cash off your total if you're willing to look around. In general, you can find the following Amazon promo codes:
- Product-specific codes (i.e. $25 off $100 spent on Star Wars themed merchandise).
- Category-specific codes (i.e. 30% off products in the toy department).
Sometimes, you can also find external promo codes as part of a partnership between Amazon and another company such as Visa. For instance, you might get a $10 credit when you pay with Visa Debit and apply your Amazon.ca coupon code at checkout.
Found an Amazon.ca discount code you can't wait to use? Applying the code to your online cart is easy. After clicking on the Amazon deal you'd like to use, copy the code, and head over to Amazon's site. Then, enter the Amazon promo code in the "Gift Cards & Promotional Codes" field of the Payment section. Click "Apply" and complete your order as usual.
