Oh, Canada, Amazon's massive two-day sale is unfortunately delayed! While the annual Prime Day sale is taking place on June 21 and 22 in the US and other countries, Canada is being left out of all the exclusive savings for the time being. Prime Day is generally a great opportunity to snag low prices worthy of Black Friday, though you need an Amazon Prime membership if you hope to take advantage of the discounts being offered during the sale. From Amazon Echo speakers and Fire TV Edition smart TVs to laptops, gaming accessories, furniture, fashion, and more, Prime Day is unleashing deals in nearly every category on the site.
There's still no word on when Amazon Canada will hold its Prime Day sale, though we expect it should occur sometime before the end of October. Of course, that doesn't mean Canadians won't see any discounts at all until then. Prime-exclusive deals are available throughout the year and many become available in the weeks prior to Prime Day. We'll be sure to share any early Prime Day Canada deals below that you should know about.
If you're not an Amazon Prime member already, there's still a way you can shop the sale without shelling out for a Prime membership. Just start a free 30-day trial, and you'll score all the same benefits that a regular Prime member receives, from access to the Prime Day sale to free two-day shipping, the Prime Video streaming service, and much more.

Amazon device deals
Amazon's 8-inch Fire HD tablet is a perfect pairing with your Prime membership thanks to its qualities as a portable entertainment device. You can stream video to the 1280x800 resolution display or store media on the 32GB built-in storage. The battery lasts through multiple movies, and it's even ready to handle some gaming for extra fun. Right now, it's $30 off for Prime Day.
Love reading? Well, you should. That counts whether it's digital or not. And if you go the digital way, the Kindle Paperwhite is a fantastic way to carry around thousands of books in a slim, waterproof device. It has 8GB of storage, a glare-free display, and eInk technology for a close real-book experience. At just more than $100, thanks to a Prime Day deal, it's a great time to up your reading game.
Amazon's Echo Show 8 is the little smart display you never knew you needed. Featuring a bright and colorful 8-inch display, perfect for your office or kitchen, the Echo Show 8 displays photos, recipes, and that awesome Prime Video show you've been meaning to watch. At $90, this is $70 off for Prime Day — and for $10 more, you get the Echo Show 8 bundled with an Amazon Smart Plug.
Amazon's Echo Show 5 is one of the best bedside or office clocks you can find. It's got a big, bright 5-inch display, a camera for video calls, and best of all, it can show all of your photos through Amazon Photos when you want to take a look at something that isn't work. At $60, it's $40 off for Prime Day — and for $85, you get a Blink Mini as part of an awesome bundle.
$25 for one of the most useful smart speakers on the planet? Yes, please. Amazon's 3rd Gen Echo Dot is $45 off for Prime Day, and it's the cheapest and easiest way to add Alexa to every room.
$190 for a speaker may seem like a lot, but you've clearly never listened to the Amazon Echo Studio. Featuring room-filling 3D sound that perfectly pairs Amazon's new Prime HD music service, the Echo Studio is one of the best smart speaker deals we've seen in Canada.
Trust me, if you haven't already upgraded to a smart doorbell, you're going to want to do that... right now. Not only does it make it convenient to answer your door from anywhere in the world — or just upstairs if you're being lazy — but it works as a great security camera, too. At $95, this 2nd Gen Ring Doorbell is $35 off for Prime Day.
Home security has gotten way smarter and way cheaper over the past few years. One of the prime examples of this is the Blink Mini, one of the most affordable smart security cameras on the market. It captures 1080p HD video, has motion detection, and supports two-way audio for easy communication. Its low price is made even more palatable during Prime Day at $15 off.
You want a mesh router. Seriously. The Eero mesh router system is among the best out there, but Canadians have always paid too much for it — until now. On Prime Day, the Eero Mesh 3-pack is $244, which is worth every penny, especially if you work from home like so many of us do these days. TRUST ME ON THIS ONE.
If you care more about portability than isolation (but still need some of that good stuff), the Sony WF-1000XM3 is your best bet. At $228, these are over $70 off their retail price, and they're some of the best-sounding and noise-isolating wireless earbuds we've ever used.
I know what you're thinking, but hear me out. Yes, $350 for a pair of earbuds is a lot, but trust me, Canada, when I say that these are the best-sounding wireless earbuds you can buy today. Sennheiser's Momentum TW2 also have incredible noise-canceling and ample battery to boot. Don't sit on this deal.
Samsung's latest true wireless earbuds are a steal at $200 — yes, they're that good — so at $150 for Prime Day, they're extra enticing. Enjoy them in black, white, or this lovely blue colorway.
Beans, beans, good for the heart. You've heard the saying, but have you heard these incredible earbuds? Featuring a bean-shaped design that molds into your ear, these are probably the most comfortable wireless earbuds you'll ever wear. Plus, they feature noise-canceling. At $200, these are a great deal.
Some of our favorite earbuds that you're most likely to overlook are the Soundcore Liberty Air 2. Not only are the Liberty Air 2 an incredible value, but they're also just darn good earbuds. Premium drivers allow for excellent sound given the price, there's Bluetooth 5.0 for great wireless performance, and there's 28-hour total battery life. For Prime Day only, they can be yours for $50 off!
Absolutely the best workout earbuds you can buy today, the Jaybird Vista are comfortable, water- and sweat-resistant, and sound great when you're jogging down the street or hours into a marathon. They also come in a range of fun colors and have tactile buttons that make it easy to play or pause music wherever, whenever. Down to $200 for Prime Day, a $40 savings!
What's that? You'd never pay this much for a pair of headphones? Let me dispel that notion for you because Sony's WH-1000XM4 noise-canceling headphones are the best in the industry, period. If you're working from home and need to cut out noise from shouting kids or the leaf-blower next door, these are your best friend — and well worth the investment.
If you don't need the latest and greatest from Sony — and let's be honest, you probably don't — these noise-canceling headphones will do the trick. Still considered some of the best-sounding cans on the market, you save $149 for Prime Day by going with the 2018 model.
The Galaxy S20+ is one of the best Android phones of the entire year, and thanks to Prime Day, buying one in Canada just got a bit more affordable. You can currently pick up the S20+ for $1,185, and while that's still a lot of money, it's a generous $393 off what it usually costs. You're getting a stunning 120Hz AMOLED display, blazing-fast performance, and great cameras.
It doesn't get much better than this in terms of cheap Android tablets. Samsung's Galaxy Tab A8 has an 8-inch display, all-day battery life, and a reliable, sturdy plastic body, and it's on sale for just $150 — $50 off — for Prime Day.
We've all been there. You've had your phone for a while, it's loaded up with a bunch of apps and movies, and you're quickly running out of space. If your phone supports expandable storage, pick up this 256GB MicroSD card from Samsung during Prime Day. It's high-quality, has a ton of room, and is pretty affordable being $19 off its normal price.
There's no denying the importance of a good Bluetooth speaker. Whether you want to jam out to music in your backyard or catch up on podcasts while your shower, it's an invaluable tool. During Prime Day, one of our favorite ones — the Anker Soundcore — is on sale for $15 off. It's compact, comes in fun colors, and sounds way better than the low price would suggest.
Sticking with Bluetooth speakers, another fantastic option comes in the form of the JBL Boombox. It's much larger and more expensive than the Anker speaker, but there's a good reason for that: it has much more impressive audio. You can easily fill an entire room (and then some) with the Boombox, which JBL describes as having "monstrous sound." You also get a built-in carrying handle, 24-hour battery life, and a hefty $190 discount during Prime Day.
You can have an amazing smartphone and tablet, but without a reliable Wi-Fi router, they aren't much use. This Prime Day, give your home network the upgrade it needs with the Google Nest Wifi Router. It looks great, offers 2200 sq ft of coverage, and supports 2.4 and 5GHz bands. If you pick up the Nest Wifi during Prime Day, it can be yours for $49 off its retail price.
Prime Day is a great opportunity for picking up a new laptop, as evident by this sale for the ASUS ZenBook Flip 14. This is a flagship laptop in every regard, with top specs including a 14-inch Full HD display, a 360-degree hinge, and an AMD R7-3700U processor with 12GB of RAM. It normally costs $1,049, but right now, it can be yours for only $879.
An all-in-one PC is great for those who don't have a ton of office or family room space thanks to all performance hardware being built in behind the display. This IdeaCentre from Lenovo has a 32-inch FHD display with a slim bezel, and it includes an AMD Ryzen 3 4300U CPU, 8GB of DDR4 RAM, and a 256GB M.2 SSD. This is a great PC for homework and light productivity, all for $175 off.
Upgrading to a 4K UHD monitor is the way to go as PCs and consoles become more powerful, but there's a significant price gap between even 2K monitors. However, you can save a big chunk on Samsung's 28-inch 4K monitor; it retails for $449, but right now, you can get it for just $329. Samsung really knows what it's doing when it comes to screens, and here you're getting premium specs like 60Hz refresh rate, 4ms response time, AMD FreeSync support, and HDR support.
Before you go off and spend a ton of money on a new Windows computer, have you considered picking up a Chromebox instead? A Chromebox is a lot like any desktop PC, save for the fact that it runs Chrome OS instead of Windows. This one from Acer is more than powerful for most normal tasks, and it can be yours for $86 less for Prime Day.
Samsung's 860 EVO 2.5-inch SATA SSD is a staple in A LOT of PCs, and you can save a quarter of the cost right now on a 1TB option thanks to Prime Day.
SSDs like the MX500 are great if you want fast speeds, but large storage amounts come at a big cost. If you'd rather focus on tons of room and are OK with slower read/write performance, check out the BarraCuda Pro from Seagate. This hard drive offers 10TB of storage and snappy 7200rpm performance, all for $142 off during Prime Day.
You can have an ultra-powerful processor, graphics card, and RAM setup, but none of that matters if your CPU overheats when you need it the most. There are a lot of options out there for keeping your system cool, and for Prime Day, you can pick up Corsair's liquid cooling setup for nearly $48 off its regular price. In addition to keeping your CPU as cool as a cucumber, it also has RGB lights. Because of course it does.
You don't need me to introduce you to the Fitbit Versa 2, but here's what I'll say: if you don't want an Apple Watch, but value all those delicious health stats, this is your best bet. Sure, there's a Versa 3, but it's $300 and only has a handful of upgrades. The Versa 2 is actually better in a few ways — that side button actually works, for instance — and it's $50 off for Prime Day.
If Wear OS is more your game than Fitbit or Apple Watch (likely if you have an Android smartphone), Fossil's Gen 5 Carlyle at $255 for Prime Day is one hell of a deal. Available in several colors and strap styles, this is one of the best smartwatches available right now.
An old standby, the Samsung Galaxy Watch is still one of the best smartwatches on the market today. Its rotating circular bezel makes it intuitive to move around the Tizen-powered OS, and the number of apps, from fitness to payments, make this an excellent deal at $70 off for Prime Day.
Have a Nintendo Switch? You need a convenient way for charging your Joy-Con controllers. This charging dock from Power A is excellent, giving you a sleek and compact dock for charging up to four Joy-Cons at once. During Prime Day, it can be yours for $10 off its retail price.
Want to take your gaming to the next level? The Razer Kraken headset is exactly what you need. Available in a ton of fun colors, the Kraken delivers immersive 7.1 surround sound, custom 50mm drivers, and has a super comfortable design for long gaming sessions. If you're interested, it can be yours at a 42% discount during Prime Day.
Speaking of Razer, PC gamers will want to check out this deal on the DeathAdder gaming mouse. It's one of the best value mice on the market, with top features including a high-precision 400 DPI sensor, mechanical switches, and a rubberized scroll wheel. You also get five programmable buttons to do whatever you want with. Pick it up now at a 25% savings!
