What are the benefits of having Amazon Prime? Watch exclusive Amazon Originals, popular movies, TV shows, sports, and live events — it’s all included with Prime. Members can watch even more by subscribing to premium and specialty channels. And the good thing is there is no cable service required.
Amazon Prime Canada offers a free trial period. At the end of the trial period, it will cost $7.99 a month, or you can save on the year plan that will cost you $79.00 a year plus any applicable taxes charged in Canada. You can cancel your subscription anytime.
Quebec residents receive a 2-month membership for $7.99 or a 13-month membership for $79.00 instead of a free trial.
While Amazon Prime members enjoy the benefit of free shipping, discounts, and more, none prime members can shop on Amazon Canada and get daily and other promotional deals. Just check out the Fire-TV-Stick-4K selling at $69.99 on sale now with a 38% off discount. See it here
My first trial experience with Amazon Smart and Streaming products was picking up a regular FireTV Stick along with an HD8 Tablet when on sale during the July 2019 Canada Prime Day. We now have these all over the house in addition to the “regular” 1080p one. One verified buyer in Canada started by saying, “I almost find this hard to believe, but this is now my 6th FireStick! I first purchased it in 2019, now at a weekend property. I recently also picked up the brand new 4K “Max” variant for my main Home Theatre, but that is a lot more money than this 4K version.
This 4K stick includes all of the same accessories as prior FireSticks—a USB power cord with a charging wall and power brick in the package. There are also the batteries to power the remote control and the refreshed Alexa-enabled option. An HDMI extender dongle comes in handy when you need to reposition the Stick due to space issues in the back of your TV.
Is there a difference between American and Canadian Amazon Prime?
Almost all products sold on Amazon US are also listed on Amazon Canada. However, you will see a difference in price due to exchange rates that do not affect service quality. Amazon US will ship to Canada, but the shipping speed can be longer, adding costs.
Amazon has constantly been the big player in e-commerce, where many product categories are listed. When you go to Amazon.ca, you have the option to save the product for later. Also, you will see if the item is in stock. On Amazon Canada, there is no shortage of discounts for a product you are interested in buying, and remember, as a prime member, you save the shipping cost. However, HST is added in some cases.
Amazon occasionally provides coupon codes that you can use to get a discount on your purchase or purchases, allowing you to save lots of money. While Amazon Canada does not regularly do advertising, you can do an Internet search and get free coupons for shopping on Amazon.
Your discount is a big saving because you save big on the total price listed on your shopping cart. In some cases, that will allow you to get free shipping on items that cost less than $25.
When you discover a coupon code for a product you want to purchase, enter to code in the promotional field, mark the “Promotional Codes” box when you decide to check out and make your payment.
