There are also many other free games and apps available through Amazon.ca's app store.

6. Free unlimited photo storage
If you're like me and have no less than a million photos of your kids (or pets or fancy dinners!), you definitely need a safe place to store them. Within the Amazon Cloud Drive is Amazon Prime Photos, you can save all these precious memories and still have access to them wherever you have internet access. So go ahead and take all the pictures you want, without worrying about storage space on your devices - or that they could get lost.
7. Free pickup
Amazon.ca's Pickup Points delivery option allows you to choose a Canada Post retail location as a shipping destination for your orders. This is a great option for those who are concerned about unattended packages at their door or who don't want to miss a delivery. Simply select the Pickup Points option at checkout.
8. Free two-day shipping
Amazon.ca offers free shipping on orders over $35. However, with Amazon Prime you get free two-day shipping on everything!!
