Amazon unveiled this global event to help consumers save money ahead of the holiday rush.

I’ll explain everything below, including some of the brands included in this two-day sale.

I’m also going to discuss why we have been Amazon Prime members for years, the costs involved and why we no longer have cable because of Amazon.

Finding Ways To Save With Amazon Prime

Members get 48 hours of the best holiday deals in October without having to leave the comfort of their homes.

Canadian Budget Binder understands that money can be tight but also knows that saving helps pay for upcoming expenses.

For example, we set aside every money in a projected expenses account that allows us to buy Christmas gifts each year.

Like all Canadians, we want to find deals on gifts so we can spread the savings throughout the holidays.

There is something for everyone with Prime, and we found out first-hand.

Almost two years ago, we called Rogers communications and cancelled our cable television.

It took us a while to conclude that we didn’t need cable, and home phone or the costs involved.

Score Deep Discounts On Amazon Early Access Deals

Since the pandemic, most of our shopping has been online; even before that, we were Amazon Prime members.

For only $99 a year, the Amazon Prime Membership offered us more than we’d ever get with cable.

The good news is that for those of you who aren’t sure whether Amazon Prime is for them, you can get a 30-day trial for free.

For our family, the yearly Amazon Prime Membership has offered us more benefits than not having it.

Below, I’m going to walk you through the following;

  • Costs of the Amazon Prime Membership?
  • Benefits of the Amazon Prime Membership
  • Early Access Prime Membership Holiday Sale Shopping October 11th and 12th.

Amazon Prime Membership Costs

After your free trial, Amazon Prime is just CDN$ 9.99/month (plus applicable taxes). The significant part is that if you are not happy, you can cancel at any time.

A quick money-saving tip: We pay $99/year for our Prime Membership which equates to $8.25/month as it’s cheaper to pay once than it is monthly.

For students, Amazon offers Prime Student for $4.99/month after a free six-month trial. I mean, it doesn’t get any better than that.

Benefits Of Amazon Prime

  • FREE Two-Day Shipping
  • Prime Video
  • Unlimited music streaming
  • Unlimited reading on any device
  • Unlimited photo storage
  • Returns

We love the prominent fast, free delivery, especially since we only have one vehicle.

Online shopping for the best deals, including health, beauty and groceries, is vital to us.

As a Prime member, you can read as much as you like from a rotating selection of eBooks. Hundreds of romances, thrillers, children’s books and more. – Press Release

Watch Movies With Amazon Prime

Remember we got rid of our cable tv? With Prime, we have access to thousands of movies on demand free with our membership.

These songs and artists are the creams of this month’s crop of music new to Prime. Check out the latest from Imagine Dragons, Shawn Mendes, Harry Styles, Zayn, The Weeknd, Drake, and Arcade Fire. – Press Release (added artists)

Mrs. CBB and I are music lovers, and Alexa is always there to help us. With our Prime membership, we get access to all genres of music anytime we want.

Like everyone, we have thousands of digital photos and having unlimited space to store photos with our Prime membership is a life-saver.

We use it as a backup to the backup as we also load our photos to a Seagate 2T external hard drive, as you can never be sure.

Hold those memories close and protect them protection.

Amazon Product Returns Are SO Easy

Lastly, what’s not talked about as much is the ability to return products to Amazon.

Almost every product has a return window where you can return it for free based on the issue.

Amazon will email you a printable label for Purolator or whichever service is for your area.

You box the product, label it and send it back to the warehouse, so you get a full refund.

Not all products are like this, as we’ve called customer service because two bottles of soap arrived dented, and they re-sent the products for free.

We’ve also had this happen with chocolate sauce; without issue, they sent new bottles. I love the ease of customer service with Amazon.

As mentioned above, for the first time, anyone with the Amazon Prime Membership gets access to the holiday sale guide.

  1. I do agree there are some nice perks with prime, but when I wanted to cancel they did not make it easy, they are very pushy. Ann s

    1. Hey Ann,
      I’m surprised as we always have great service. Interesting to hear that as we’ve never experienced that although we’ve never tried to cancel a membership before. I’m sure like any other business they’d try to keep you on. I know we have been with them for years now and love it since my wife is disabled it’s perfect for us. I also like the coupons, competitive pricing and the fact that I don’t have to drive and waste gas to get what we need. There were too many pros for us to say no. Thanks for stopping in to comment and share your experience Ann. Mr. CBB
