While many of us are using Amazon these days in Canada, not all of us have gotten an Amazon Prime membership. So we’ll break down what it costs and what you’ll get.
$7.99 Canadian per month (plus taxes) after your free 30 day trial or $79 Canadian annually (Comes out to $6.58 per month)
For those in Quebec, since they cannot offer a free trial, Amazon is offering a 2 month membership for $7.99 to start.
Students: 6 month free trial and then $3.99 Canadian per month or $39 per year.
Benefits of being an Amazon Prime member in Canada:
- Free Two-Day Shipping on millions of items Free Same-Day or One-Day delivery in select cities on qualifying orders over $25
- Prime Video – They have some excellent content and now have Amazon Originals which they are pouring money into to develop
- Prime Music – While I’m more of a fan of Apple Music, I hear their offering is pretty good
- Prime Reading – Rotating selection of eBooks
- Amazon Photos – Free unlimited photo storage
Student Benefits are slightly different however the main difference we would highlight is that you get Twitch Prime with monthly full indie games and exclusive in-game content!
