Some background info so you are prepared for next year’s event:

Amazon’s Black Friday is here today and gone tomorrow!  Reminder today is Amazon Prime Day with 30% to 50% savings on electronics, movie gift sets, TV’s, Kindle,  eReaders and more. Free regular Canadian Amazon members need to pay $79 annually for Prime membership to take in the deals and free two-day delivery all year round, preferred pricing every day and Amazon TV and Movie access…or try the free 30 day trial.

If you buy more than one item a month, Amazon Prime is a better deal for you as free two-day shipping tips the scale in its favour.

Most items are great deals but some, like the awesome Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Electric Toothbrush sells for the same $149.99 price at London Drugs till the end of the month. Or a 4GB portable USB 3.0 backup drive $134.99 at Prime and at Best Buy too.
