Amazon Prime - What is the Amazon Prime event?
Amazon Prime Day is a generally bi-annual event organized at the beginning of summer in July and October over 48 hours by the online retailer Amazon. Promotional sales exclusively for members of the Amazon Prime program are offered over a short period. You can benefit from substantial discounts on various products, from electronics to clothing, beauty products, toys and much more.
The last Amazon Prime operation occurred from July 11 to 12, 2023.
Started in 2015, Prime Day has become one of the biggest online sales events, comparable to the Black Friday or Cyber Monday. Amazon strives to offer the best products at the lowest prices, with products from all the major brands to satisfy its members.
Amazon Prime - How much does Amazon Prime cost?
Amazon Prime is billed at $9.99 per month or $99 per year (or $8.25 per month). Quebec residents can take advantage of 30 free days via this link. Students benefit from half-price pricing and a 6-month trial.
You need to be a member to benefit from Prime Day offers. Prime Video members must take out a subscription to benefit from this service.
Amazon Prime - How can I get a free trial for Amazon Prime?

Amazon Prime - Personalized Prime Invitations
Members receive invitation-only offers with a selection of products before the big day.
Amazon Prime - Shop with points on Amazon Prime
Amazon is a partner of two financial institutions: American Express and TD. You can redeem American Express Membership Rewards points (1,000 Membership Rewards points = $7) or TD Rewards points (1,000 points = $3.33) at Amazon.ca.
Link your American Express or TD Rewards card to your Amazon.ca Shop with Points program. At checkout, select your American Express or TD credit card as your payment method and choose the number of points to apply to your order.
However, it’s worth noting that it’s more attractive to use your points on your Amazon purchase once it’s been charged to your American Express credit card. In fact, as with any purchase, you can use your points as an account credit at the rate of 1,000 Membership Rewards points = $10. Like my purchase at IGA:
Amazon Prime - Amazon Prime Day partners
Amazon Prime - Aeroplan eStore
As a result, you’ll accumulate :
- 5 Aeroplan points per dollar spent on Amazon on October 10 and 11
- 2 Aeroplan points per dollar spent on Amazon with Aeroplan status
- 5 additional Aeroplan Points for each Aeroplan Point earned with a TD Aeroplan credit card
- Up to 1.25 Aeroplan Base Points per dollar on TD Aeroplan credit card purchases
So, to earn the most points with this offer, it’s best to pay for your purchases with a TD Aeroplan credit card:
If you don’t have a specific purchase around Prime Day, the Amazon gift card is the best option for pampering yourself later. The advantage is that there are no fees or expiry dates to use them. They are used to purchase eligible products and services on amazon.ca or other amazon sites in other countries, and a promotion is currently running until October 23.
Also, if you’re an Aeroplan Elite Member, you’ll earn two extra points for every dollar you spend in the Aeroplan eStore.
Buy your Amazon gift cards in grocery stores(IGA, Sobeys, Métro, Super C) with one of these two cards: the American Express CobaltMD Card and the Scotiabank Gold American Express® Card. You’ll earn 5 points for every dollar spent on Amazon gift cards, or the equivalent of 5%. And if you use your Scotiabank Gold American Express® Card at IGA/Sobeys grocery stores, you’ll even earn 6 points per dollar!
Right now, you can also buy a $50 Amazon gift card on Amazon.ca for a $5 credit via this link. That’s a 10% return.
