Amazon Prime Day is happening in Canada this year! After canceling Prime Day in Canada in 2021, due to the coronavirus, Amazon just announced that Prime Day will be happening in Canada in 2022. In 2020, the last Prime Day in Canada, Amazon announced that record-breaking sales surpassed $3.5 billion (roughly CAD$4.6 billion) across 19 countries, including Canada. In addition, Amazon stated that Prime members saved over $1.4 billion (approximately CAD $1.8 billion CAD) during Prime Day 2020. Given the two-year hiatus, this Canada Prime Day in 2022 is sure to be a big event.
