For those who don’t want to shell out $79 on the spot for a whole year of Amazon Prime, there’s a new deal available!

Amazon Canada has just announced a monthly plan giving people the option to be a Prime Member for $7.99 a month, instead of the existing $79 annual membership.

“Prime brings together the best of entertainment and shopping into a simple package at an unbelievable value for Canadians,” said Mike Strauch, country manager for Amazon Canada.

“With the launch of a monthly membership, we have added yet another easy way to enjoy Prime benefits.”

The service allows members to get free 2-day or 3-day shipping on numerous items, and a slew of other perks like unlimited access to award-winning movies and TV shows with Prime Video, access to over one million songs on Prime Music, unlimited photo storage with Prime Photos and Twitch Prime.

Members also receive 30-minute early access to select Lightning Deals, and get discounts compliments of Amazon Family.

With the expansion of Amazon Prime, membership across the country has doubled over the past 18 months.

Customers can now start their new monthly plan (or stick to the annual one) and receive a 30-day free trial by clicking here.
