Amazon Prime Members in Canada Can Now Enjoy Free Unlimited Photo Storage with Prime Photos
Amazon Student, Amazon Family and Prime members can upload unlimited photos to Amazon Cloud Drive and rest easy knowing they’re safe and accessible

Prime benefits continue to grow as Prime shipments in Canada nearly tripled in 2014

SEATTLE—January 20, 2015—Amazon today introduced Prime Photos for customers in Canada, providing free unlimited photo storage in Amazon Cloud Drive. Most people have a lifetime of birthdays, vacations, holidays, and everyday moments stored across numerous devices. And, they continue to create billions of photos every year. Now, Prime, Amazon Student and Amazon Family members in Canada have a simple, secure place to store their photos -- all for free.

Starting today, members can securely store their existing photo collections, automatically upload new photos taken and access them anytime, anywhere, at no cost. Members can start using the Prime Photos benefit by visiting www.amazon.ca/primephotos.

Tens of millions of members around the world already enjoy Prime. And this past holiday season, more than 10 million new members worldwide tried Prime for the first time. In Canada, the number of orders shipped via Prime nearly tripled last year. Since the program was introduced in Canada in 2013, Amazon.ca customers ordered millions of items with Prime. In fact, customers ordered enough items via Prime that if each were packaged separately, they would cover nearly 1,000 hockey rinks.

In Canada, membership includes unlimited Free Two-Day Shipping on millions of items, discounted One-Day Shipping for as low as $3.99/item and Same-Day Delivery in Toronto and Vancouver for a flat fee of $6.99 per-order.

“With a brand new year ahead of us, it’s the perfect time to organize all of your photo memories – from photos of last year’s holiday parties, to recent and past family gatherings, birthdays, graduations and more,” said Alexandre Gagnon, country manager for Amazon.ca. “With free unlimited photo storage, we’re giving Prime members in Canada one more reason to use Prime every day. Prime has helped members save time and money, and now with Prime Photos they can save special memories too.”

Prime Photos will now enable Amazon Student, Amazon Family andPrime members in Canada to:

Upload photos from their iOS and Android devices, Fire tablets, and Mac and Windows computers—and have them stored for free in the Amazon cloud.
Access their photo collections at any time from nearly any device—phones, tablets, and computers.
Add photos to Cloud Drive in their original version so customers never have to worry about losing the full resolution image.
Rest easy knowing that their photos are protected in the Amazon cloud.
Prime Photos is extended to all Canada Prime members. Members can access their photos on the following devices: Fire tablets, iPhone, iPad, as well as Android phones and tablets.

Amazon Student only lasts 6 months after you sign up... so 6 months of storage, unless you sign up for Prime afterwards. kinda pointless?

Yep. Prime still pales in Canada. If they can't license streaming videos the least they can do is offer some sort of deal on physical discs - like putting the $ that costs them for videos per customer in the US to an equal value in select DVDs/BRs etc. Sorta like Columbia House.
Should we have open retail markets to bring more UK and US retailers to Canada?wegmans-tops-trader-joes-americas-favou ... #p27788812

I saw the Prime benefits from Amazon.ca, and basically it only gives you free 2 day shipping for the year you are subscribed to it.

If I understand well the USA offer, you have video and music and ______ that Canadian do not get for just a little less pricey offer.

I do not see any real benefit to pay for this...

This could be a benefit for new parents! With Family Prime you save 20% off diapers with free 2 day delivery!?

That's pretty good, I just looked quickly but their prices seem identical to Walmart. Take 20% off that and that's a good price! Plus you can get up to 15% off other items.

Seems pretty good to me!

Does anyone have experience with this?

Oh, yea, I did not mentioned rebates on diapers, but that's mainly because I do not need any and won't benefit from it!

Doesn't support Fuji RAWs. Otherwise I'd consider it.
Some people just don't get that online forum posts shouldn't always be taken seriously.

I do! You pay i think $79 after a month of Family Prime trial! You must subscribe for a once a month delivery for diapers, i am a father of twins which makes it an excellent deal on diapers (we spend 2 boxes a month-around 400 diapers). Same price as WM -20%. They usually deliver 2 days before the subscribed date! Saves time going out and shopping for big diaper boxes! :)

Is it possible to use a prime photos (unlimited cloud storage) with a US prime account in Canada? Or does it have to be a Canadian prime account?
