Amazon Prime Day 2019 for Canadians: what you need to know

Amazon Prime Day is just around the corner — and getting longer. The shopping extravaganza is set to last 48 hours this time, up from 36 hours last summer.
And if 2018 is any guide, it will be another smashing success for the giant online retailer. Last year Amazon said it sold 100 million products worldwide, more than any previous Prime Day and surpassing even Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Small and medium-sized businesses selling on Amazon made more than $1 billion in sales during the event, it said.
But is Prime Day as good a deal for consumers as it is for retailers? That depends on what you buy and how you shop.
