  • Free two-day shipping on millions of eligible items to most cities in Canada
  • Discounted one-day shipping for as low as CDN$ 3.99/item

  • No minimum purchase required

You can read more about the service here and we'd definitely recommend checking it especially because it's a free trial.

    • I usually get my stuff from Amazon 2 days after or the day after (assuming item ships same day as purchase). So what's the point of this? Is it only beneficial if you live in rural areas like the NWT?

    • just noticed this as well!

      free trial here I come.

      Might cancel after though, since my free shipping usually gets here in 1 days anyways! sometimes longer.

      now we just need movie and tv show streaming here!

      It also removes the $25 minimum requirement for free shipping.

      Hopefully it's the start of Amazon bringing their multimedia (VOD) component to Prime in Canada very soon. Then it's very worth it.

    • No free movie/TV streaming, no free monthly Kindle book. Same price as the US with half the stuff. Are they f'in kidding me. You can't even share an existing account with .ca and .com.

      How is this hot again??

    • So i am guessing third-party sellers wont give free shipping with this correct?

      Makes it a terrible deal without it. But I'm guessing they're finally working on digital content since Kindle books are finally available through the .ca store (which was always a giant WTF to me before that they weren't).

      On the other hand, Amazon announced in 2007 that they'd have a digital music store in Canada in 2008. Still hasn't happened. So I won't be paying anything until they deliver the goods.

    • Compared to US we have a lot of services removed. Don't know if it is worth $79/yr. US also has free membership for students I believe.

      "He says the company was ready to bring Amazon Prime to Canada once its second fulfillment facility was opened in Delta, B.C., south of Vancouver in the fall.
      It also operates a similar facility in Mississauga, Ont., west of Toronto that assists with filling Canadian customer orders."

    • So wait, if I already have Amazon Prime for .com, it doesn't automatically cover .ca?

      In the Canadian Press article, Canada's country manager says there are "no plans to offer <those> in Canada", so Amazon's introversion policy is holding strong.

      Oh, the Star article linked above says that too:

      Amazon Prime has been offered in the U.S. since 2005, and recently expanded to include a free e-book lending service for Kindle users and a television and movie streaming service to its subscribers.

      At this point, Oliver says there are no plans to offer these options in Canada.

      Realistically, how many orders under $25 are you going to place in a month? Maybe order 1 item a day under $25 just because you can instead of placing a few orders over $25? Question; did you sign up for the trial?

      My US Prime had a 1 month trial, but it came with the free monthly Kindle book and unlimited streaming. That was a hot deal.

      PRIME is all about the free content...the shipping is a just a throw in. Only in Canada do they offer the 'throw-in' and we call it a Hot Deal. With that type of attitude what incentive do they have to provide us something other than garbage?

      No I checked, they won't link accounts just like your .ca and .com account are different.

      Read that too. Until Amazon has more products like their US counterpart and/or free streaming, Prime for Canada isn't a worthy deal.

    • It's surprisingly frank for them to admit that they aren't even working or planning on non-US service delivery, which really erodes the value of their tablet offerings.
