JULY 15th ONLY - The Online Cross Border Shopping Event of the Year!

14 Jul, 2015

If you do your cross border shopping online, July 15th may be your lucky day!

On July 15th, Amazon is having its first Prime Day, a one-day event that claims to offer more deals than Black Friday.

Get all the Deals and Learn More about Amazon Prime Day here.

A few tips before you shop:

  • If you don’t have a U.S. Amazon Prime account, you can create a FREE 30 day Amazon Prime trial account here to take advantage of Prime Day deals (you need to be an Prime member to take advantage of Prime Day deals).If you don’t like the service, you can always cancel your account at no cost before your 30 day free trial ends.
  • U.S. Amazon Prime memberships don’t offer free shipping to Canada, but DO offer free shipping to U.S. shipping addresses. You can find U.S. shipping addresses here.

If you don't want to shop south of the border, you can take advantage of Amazon Prime day on Amazon’s Canadian website here. While we don't expect the same kind of deals and selection in Canada as you'll find on the U.S. website, there may still be some great buys.
