Amazon Prime extended to Canada, minus Instant Video
Amazon has launched its lauded subscription-based Prime delivery service in <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/276842==http://www.amazon.ca/gp/prime" rel='nofollow'>Canada</a>. The all-you-can-eat delivery service offers users free two-day delivery across the country, though it offers a more stripped-down version of the retailer's own offering in the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/276843==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/11/18/prime.reverted.to.yearly.only.charging/" rel='nofollow'>United States</a> and the United Kingdom. <br />
Canadian shoppers can opt for one-day delivery on items bought, at a discount as low as $4 CAD ($4) per item, and standard shipping is also free for orders where one-day and two-day shipping is unavailable to use. Extras such as the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/276844==http://www.electronista.com/articles/11/09/20/overdrive.amazon.partner.to.lend.e.books/" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">Kindle Owners' Lending Library</a>, available in the UK and US, and <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/276845==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/09/04/amazon.signs.multi.year.deal.with.epix.for.prime.i nstant.video.content/" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">Prime Instant Video</a> are not available to Canadian subscribers as of yet, something that country manager Steve Oliver of Amazon.ca says the retailer has "no plans to offer," according to <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/276846==http://www.timescolonist.com/business/amazon-ca-offers-unlimited-guaranteed-2-day-shipping-for-79-a-year-1.42123" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">the</a> <em>Times Colonist</em>.
Amazon Prime costs $79 CAD ($80) per year plus taxes, with Amazon offering a free one-month trial of the service.
