Looking Back on the 2013 Holidays
Amazon.ca customers had plenty of time to find the right gift and get it under a loved one's tree last year. In fact, last holiday season:
- From our country to yours: Amazon.ca customers shipped gifts to 121 countries. With international shipping options, Amazon.ca customers can send gifts and connect with loved ones, no matter the distance or time zone.
- 'Twas two nights before Christmas': And all through the country, Canadians were looking for the perfect gifts for loved ones. On December 23, Amazon.ca shipped the most orders to arrive in time for Christmas to these top five cities; 1.) Toronto, 2.) Calgary, 3.) Edmonton, 4.) Vancouver and 5.) Montreal. Last minute shopping doesn't have to be stressful, or feel last minute. With Amazon.ca, customers still have time to get gifts under the tree.
- Down to the last minute never felt so good: From holiday parties to wrapping up work for the year, December is busy which doesn't often leave time to shop. Amazon.ca customers can rest easy knowing they can do holiday shopping and have orders arrive in time for Christmas. In fact, in 2013, the last Prime order delivered before Christmas was placed on December 23 at 7:41 p.m. and delivered to a customer in Warburg, Alberta.
