In only a few short years, Amazon’s Prime Day has become one of the biggest days in retail all across the world. According to Global News, Amazon has revealed that it sold 100 million items across the globe last year, smashing the sales of the traditional retail holidays Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The 2019 edition of the day has been expanded by Amazon to 48 hours from the 36 in 2018, giving Canadians even more time to take advantage of the deals.
The only barrier to Prime Day is membership of Amazon’s Prime service, but those who are not members can sign up for a free 30-day trial, which comes with free delivery and access to Prime Video, Prime Music and unlimited photo storage on Amazon Photos. For those who wish to sign up beyond their trial, the price for Canadians is C$7.99 plus tax per month or C$79 plus tax per year. For those living in Quebec, Amazon is not offering the free trial and instead offering two months of Prime for the price of one.
