Topic: $250 from Amazon.ca for new Business Accounts

As first spotted by RedFlagDeals:

Amazon Canada has a promo where you can get 25% off your first order (up to $250 in savings), for setting up an Amazon Business account. You can see it in the first banner rotating at:

https://business.amazon.ca/
https://business.amazon.ca/en/campaigns/save25percent

I used it to buy an Apple computer, saving $250! (Apple stuff is rarely on sale)

Nice George, I am looking for a couple of phones for my kids so it looks like I will use this for those.

Thanks for sharing. Which Apple product did you get?
Did you have to wait 48 hours after verification email?

I actually had to wait more than 48 hours (it should have worked on Friday afternoon, 48 hours after my Wednesday afternoon registration, but it didn't actually work until Saturday at 8 am Toronto time). Fortunately, it eventually worked.

I got a Mac Mini (cheapest M1 version), plus a network switch and USB flash drives to put it over the $1000. (to get the entire $250 savings) One can spend less than $1,000, but it wouldn't be optimal to do so!

I actually wanted to wait for the updated Mac Mini (with M1X or M2 chip, to have more RAM, faster CPU, etc.), but I got tired of waiting, so I just went with the cheapest one to get my feet wet. I'll spend more on the next update, and relegate this purchase to secondary usage, in a different room of my house, etc.

My other option was to get a NAS device, but with Chia driving hard disk prices higher, I'll wait.

Nice. Mac mini is a beast.
I still have the 2012 Mini server edition. I got it hooked up to the TV for streaming.

For the rebate, the item has to be sold by Amazon directly though, if I understand it correctly.

I still have a 2009 MacMini on my desk that I still used quite a bit until I added a new desktop PC last year. I had added memory to it, replaced the harddrive with an SSD and upgraded it to the latest MacOS with the help of a hack ;-)

I have yet to find an item where Amazon accepts this code. Also I never got the other code for $50 off I was supposed to get after signing up either.

Has it been more than 48 hours since you created the new business account? Here's what I bought:

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B08N6GDF4D/

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00A121WN6/

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B06XG9XP49/


Note it says (on the right hand side) "Ships from and sold by Amazon.ca." for all three items (the latter two were bought in order to use up the entire $250 savings, by spending more than $1000; I bought 2 flash drives).

One can add items to a cart, go through the checkout process, but then not actually do the purchase (even after adding the coupon code), to test things out.
