Since launching in 2015, Amazon Prime Day has become one of the biggest shopping events of the year in Canada, the U.S. and abroad. It's the best time to shop the best deals on tech, home goods, appliances and more — but only if you have an Amazon Prime membership.
This year, the sale took place on July 12 and 13, and included brands such as Beats, Casper, iRobot and SharkNinja. Rumours have begun swirling about a second Prime member-exclusive sale happening this fall, and we've got all the details on how to save big at Amazon Canada.
When is Amazon Prime Day 2022 in Canada?
On Sept. 26, Amazon revealed that it would be hosting its first Prime Early Access Sale, a new two-day shopping event exclusive to Prime members taking place from Oct. 11 - 12.
Like Amazon Prime Day in July, it will offer huge savings and discounts exclusively for Prime members.
Earlier this year, shoppers were able to take advantage of two days of sales and deals, as Amazon Prime Day ran from July 12 - 13.
What is Amazon Prime Day?
Prime Day is Amazon’s biggest sale of the year, with deals offered exclusively for Amazon Prime members.

What does a Prime membership include?
In addition to access to Prime Day sales and deals, a Prime membership has tons of additional year-round perks. It includes free two-day and same-day shipping, access to Prime Video original TV shows and movies, and free e-book and music downloads through Prime Music and Prime Reading. If you’re not already a member, you can enrol in a 30-day free trial that gives you all of the benefits of a Prime membership without the full commitment.
Currently Amazon Prime membership costs $99/year or $9.99/month for Canadian subscribers. Discounted rates are also available for students.
How can I find the best Amazon deals?
Beyond Prime Day, Amazon’s shopping pages are broken down into easy-to-shop sections that give you access to the best daily deals. Under the Deals Store tab, you’ll find each section filled with limited-time offers.
You can also sign up for notifications ahead of Prime Day, to ensure that you never miss a moment of the action.
Create deal alerts for personalized recommendations: Prime members can subscribe to receive deal alert notifications related to their recent Amazon searches and recently viewed items. All they have to do is visit the Prime Day event page on the Amazon app between now and Prime Day to create deal alerts. Once Prime Day arrives, members will receive push notifications on any available deals.
Get deal notifications from Alexa: Prime members never have to worry about missing a deal thanks to Alexa. Members can add products to their Wish List, Cart, or Save for Later, and then ask Alexa to notify them about the deal when it’s live or even order it on their behalf.
Set a reminder: Prime members can say, “Remind me when Prime Day starts,” to be alerted when the two-day deals event begins.
