When is Amazon Prime Day in Canada?

By Kate Musgrove

Amazon Prime Day is one of the most-anticipated shopping events in Canada and has quickly grown to become the #3 biggest event on RedFlagDeals after Black Friday and Boxing Day. Due to its undeniable popularity and enormous levels of hype, you might be asking yourself – When is Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Canada held Prime Day 2022 on July 12 and 13 and the event was a huge success for Amazon, as the company announced afterwards that it was the biggest Prime Day ever. Prime Day 2022 was also the first time Amazon held their flagship shopping event in Canada since 2020, after the event was cancelled in 2021 due to pandemic-related shipping and supply chain concerns. We're looking forward to another good sale. If you're not a Prime Member, it's worth signing up for a free trial! You'll get 30 days of no-obligation free shipping and fantastic deals. And right now, you can get a year of free DoorDash DashPass with your Prime Membership. If you're a student, you can get an extended six-month free trial of Amazon Prime Student here!

What's Amazon Prime?

Amazon Prime is a subscription service with perks including free shipping on most orders and access to Amazon's suite of entertainment services including Prime Video, Prime Music, Prime Gaming and others. Subscriptions are available on monthly or annual terms and free 30-day trials are available – all subscription levels will have access to Prime Day deals.

What's Prime Day?

Prime Day is Amazon's worldwide shopping event held exclusively for Prime members, originally as a one-day event from 2015-2017, then shifting to a two-day event since 2018. Prime Day is typically held in mid-July, with notable exceptions coming in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

What's the Deal?

Prime Day deals are a mystery until the event starts, but Amazon usually releases a sneak peek before each event. In recent years, it's been a near-certainty that you'll find the lowest prices of the year on first-party devices like Echo speakers and Fire TV streaming sticks, along with significant discounts on products like Instant Pot cookers, rarely-discounted LEGO sets, computer components, video games and much more.

    • This was more or less the best prime day for me just because I had been saving up gift card balance to get an adjustable bed frame anyway, and one of the 2 i had been watching got a decent discount.

      Did some other minor spend on stuff, most of the other prime day discounts were stuff coming down to their typical BF/boxing day levels, it just timed out well as time to buy.

      Sadly, some of my purchases qualified for aeroplan estore bonus but not the big ticket.

    • This year's Prime Day was surprisingly great for me. I bought products that I honestly didn't ever think of buying, have they not been on sale. This includes:

      - Apple TV 4K (64 GB) for $99.00
      - Apple Watch Series 8 for $409.00

      Overall, I'm pretty happy with how it went.

    • Oh for sure!

      Having the keepa and camel plugins showed the real/historical prices for everything and most of the deals were just the regular discounted prices for things.

      So disappointing.

      I had money in hand, ready to spend on things I didn't really need, if they were discounted enough.

      Seller coupons + price tracking = way better deals than prime day!

      First world problems.
      There were multiple things that I had tracked, that prime day was the cheapest ever for those (at least in 6+ months) , so perhaps it depends on what you were looking at.

      I dont see coupons on keepa though, which can be misleading sometimes.

    • I thought so too until the Amazon gods marked it as undeliverable after it had already shipped. Sleazy way to fix their mistake, I believe.

    • Not just you. This was the best sales in a couple years, beats Black Friday and Boxing day. The price error on the pot/pan set from Amazon was the cherry on top.
      Which price error on pots and pans?

    • I bought a handful of items but my shipment is now lost in transit (thank you ASL!). Can I still claim that I bought something or do I move over and have to sit with the hosers in the didn't buy anything crowd?


      Update: Amazon has notified me that my order is being cancelled and the package is being returned to them. I will be getting a refund. I guess that means that the ASL truck ran over my box. So much for ******* Prime Day. 😠

    • Have you tried comparing the QC45 against something like the Sony XM-series?
      Not other than on paper (read reviews etc )

      My first choice was always Bose
      My second was Sony

      Then I posted the thread a few days ago … in hopes that there would be a Prime Days Sale … but also to get feedback from actual RFD owners
      Results over there were definitely mixed
      More pro posts for Bose … than Sony tho

      Good Prime Day pricing ended up sealing the deal for me

    • As a Strategic Shopper …
      I have an ongoing WANTS & NEEDS LIST
      Only buying stuff when it’s at a great price

      NEEDS = Stock up when the price is at its lowest on groceries, household supplies etc
      WANTS = Anything that’s not an absolute need in life (the Wish List )

      I picked up 2 items from my WANTS LIST
      One a far bigger splurge than the other … but I feel I got the best deal possible in the last year or so

      Bose QC 45 headphones (and the Costco equivalent = Bose SE )
      Both were awesome priced

      When they arrive, I’ll be keeping whichever one I like best

      Lol, my plans were to return the 2nd set … but now one my kids is interested in it
      I may keep it / gift it for their upcoming Bday

      So, nothing goes to waste … an awesome deal is something others truly recognize too

    • Stuff I would have really wanted wasn’t on sale or on same sale price as before so wallet safe like last year. Not complaining, it’s for the best 😄

      It's for spending it.

    • The best deal was probably 30 Krispy Kreme k-cups for $11.

      Due to the new RFD rule of only allowing "high quality" 3rd party sellers, most of the good deals were missed. I got some new French press mesh filters for $3 for a 4-pack. And 2.1kg of hazelnuts for $48.

      If you're not using Camelx3 or Keepa, you're enriching Bezos.

    • I thought this Prime Day was amazing, many great deals. Prolly the best sales in the last 2 years.
      I thought Prime Day was pretty good too and managed to find deals on 11 items I needed. Already received one item (and saved an extra 30% because the box was crushed) and the rest is coming later today.

      The fall "Prime Day" is the one that usually isn't as good but even then, I'll often find something on sale that I need. My fave thing about Prime Day is that it helps me clear out a large portion of my wish list in one shot, rather than have to wait for deals to randomly appear throughout the year.

    • I bought stuff that I needed and have been looking at for a while.
      Mens socks
      Keurig
      Hedge trimmer
      Coffee pods batteries
      Spices
      Candles
      The prices were good but not great. Everything will get used. Got a warranty on the keurig. Spent close to $600 which is significant for us and much more than last year.

    • Nothing that seemed like a great bargain again this year. Small discounts on overpriced items for the most part. Amazon is doing a great job hyping Prime Days without actually giving away much.

    • I guess I was the only one that actually found Prime Day useful and I ended up spending way more than I was expecting. My list:

      - F1 Manager 2023 for PS5 ($45.27)
      - Anther clothing steamer ($144.63)
      - Cordless tire inflator ($50.84)
      - Cottonelle flushable wipes ($22.57)
      - Airpods 2 ($260.33)
      - Samodra bidets x 2 ($106.28)
      - Kraus KPF-1690BGMB Kitchen faucet ( $363.43)
      - Waterdrop 17UA undersink filter ($90.39)
      - Huepar laser level ($68.59)
      - Theraface Pro ($496.07)

      All of this stuff was at ATL, possible price error or a decent enough discount that it was worth buying as I have been tracking these things for sometime, others were impulse buyers like the Airpods. Good job Amazon for selling me tons of random stuff I guess.
