    I use the live chat feature and in my first message to them mention my order number and that I would like a free month. Just streamlines the process to avoid back and forth messages

    I got a few small deals on stuff I wanted to buy anyway, as coupons were available for a lot of what I bought. I also bought one lightning deal at $9 off, plus a $3 off coupon (regular $36). 5x aeroplan points (for what they're worth) was an added bonus, and I used $5 in amazon rewards that I didn't know I had.

    By all means nothing spectacular deal wise unless you wanted to buy Amazon devices that actively listen to your conversations.

    Delivery times may get better in the near future. They just opened their Ottawa warehouse two or three weeks ago. It’ll take a while to fill it up, and it seems to be stocking with oversized type items to start, but it’ll be closer than the previous closest warehouse in Brampton.

    I didn’t personally order anything on prime day(s), but I did sell about three times my usual daily volume.

    We had to go in and save the day at that new warehouse in Ottawa, they kicked the rack installers for fucking up so much. Nothing like $100k/day to fix a problem. Pretty impressive facility.

    Yeah, I obviously haven’t been in, but drove past. Pretty impressive. Hopefully it improves their service to the East coast.

    Toys, groceries, books, household items, school supplies, media, etc. Pretty wide variety depending on the time of year, and which country I’m selling in (Canada/US).

    It did and they actually sent a second one. I am hoping I can double them up for maximum results.
