Amazon Prime Canada now available. Should you Subscribe to it?


amazon prime canada review

Amazon Prime membership which was earlier limited to citizens of the United States is now available for people like you, who live in Canada. Amazon.ca has several great products that you may want to buy and Amazon Prime Canada would get them delivered at your doorstep, anywhere in Canada, for Free.

Amazon Prime Canada comes with one-month free trial and costs CDN$ 79 per year. Now, the key goal of this blog post is to tell you the benefits that Amazon Prime Canada would add to your regular account and whether those features are worth spending CDN$ 79 per year.

So, let’s get to the real stuff.

PROS

Unlimited two-day shipping to anywhere in Canada

With this, you’d be able to get millions of eligible products delivered to you faster. This service is not available to all of Canada, but most cities. Also, there’s no limit on the number of products for which you can available this express shipping.

Discounted One-day shipping

If you want Amazon.ca to quickly ship your package, you can pay them CDN$ 3.99 and they will ship it to you within a day.

Free Standard Shipping

With Amazon Prime Canada, you’ll get free standard shipping for areas where express two-day shipping is unavailable.

No minimum order amount required

Amazon regularly offers Free Super Saver shipping on all orders above 25 dollars, but you being a Prime member would be waived that minimum requirement.

CONS

Your Kindle isn’t loved by Amazon

Yes, you’ve read me correct; Kindle owners of Canadian cities are welcome to Kindle Owners Lending Library. Prime members of Amazon US get to lend one book from Kindle Owners Lending Library each month but you won’t get that benefit, even though you’re paying the same amount.

No Instant Video for You

The ability to stream your favorite video content instantly on any platform is probably the most exciting feature of Amazon Prime membership. But like Kindle Owners Lending Library, this feature is also limited to Amazon US subscribers.

No trial if you live in Quebec

If you live in Quebec, you won’t be getting a free one-month trial of this service. However, Amazon CA is generous enough to give you 13 months of prime membership at the price of 12.

The Verdict

If you buy a lot of exclusive stuff from Amazon.ca, only then you should think of upgrading to Amazon Prime Canada. For the price, Amazon should have added some bonus for Kindle users in Canada, discounted eBooks perhaps.
