Amazon Customer Service – Amazon phone numbers and Online Chat

Wow, a lot of us are doing a lot of shopping online! And of course, the first place that comes to mind when you think online shopping is Amazon. Whether you’re looking for diapers for your baby, or some groceries to top up your pantry – Amazon has a wide selection of all sorts of necessary products in these uncertain times. But, of course, with all that ordering there can sometimes be issues with orders. Or, you may have another question you’d like to ask an Amazon customer service representative. With that in mind, we decided to search for the best customer service information to get in touch with Amazon.

Amazon Customer Service – Sign in to your Amazon Account

For the best customer service, always sign in to your Amazon account first. And if you receive suspicious phone calls from someone claiming to be from Amazon please be very careful. There are a lot of scams out there! (We know of one friend who wasn’t scammed, but was called over and over again by scammers claiming to be from Amazon. They kept wanting him to share his credit card information to supposedly renew his Amazon Prime. Amazon will never contact you like this!!)

Once you have safely signed into your account, using your own email and password to sign in, then you can access customized customer service help. This can also include being able to chat online with an Amazon customer service rep, which is a great option!

Amazon.ca Customer Service phone number

1-877-586-3230 is the main customer service phone number for Amazon in Canada. You can use this number to access help with orders or also with issues not pertaining to an order. Always have all pertinent information ready – such as order date, order number, and be ready to explain what help you need. Please also note that calling a customer service number will take a lot longer than accessing Amazon’s online chat feature. (I’ve used the chat feature a few times, and it’s quick and super efficient! We’ll have more information about the online Amazon chat below the phone number information.)

Amazon.com Customer service number

For customers viewing this from the US, you’ll use the same number as the Canadian number above. This customer service number is used throughout North America. 1-877-586-3230 is the main number to access Amazon’s customer service help. Again, be prepared with all information pertaining to your order such as order date and order number. And, be prepared to wait a while! Often, phoning a customer service number will end up taking up more of your time than using their online chat feature to resolve issues. Find more information about online chat with Amazon, below.

Amazon.ca Live Chat Customer Service

As mentioned previously, I really love Amazon’s online chat feature! Simply login to your Amazon account on Amazon.ca. Scroll down to the very bottom of the main page under the heading Let Us Help You. You’ll see an option for Customer Service at the bottom of the list. Click here to go to Amazon.ca’s customer service page directly. You’ll be presented with a number of options on what type of help it is you’re trying to find. Click on the appropriate topic – such as ORDERS or Returns and Refunds.

It takes a little work to access online chat with Amazon, but one way I’ve discovered that works is if you click on ‘Problem with Order’ on any of your recent orders. Or, simply work through the online help and FAQ section. After trying for a while, it seems like an option for online chat will eventually become available. You have to work a little bit to find it though! And you always need to be signed in to your account to access the live chat.

Once you do access Online Chat, you’ll find that your issues can often be resolved very quickly. I’ve found it a much faster way to get customer service versus calling on the phone.

Amazon.com Live Chat Customer Service

Amazon provides a ton of helpful FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) to hopefully answer your question before you ever need to call or chat online with an Amazon rep. But, of course, there are always those rare occasions when you really do need to chat online to have your specific issue resolved.

There is no simple link to online chat with an Amazon customer service representative. First, you’ll need to sign on to your Amazon account. Then, go to Help at the very bottom of the page on Amazon.com. That link will take you to Amazon.com’s customer service help page.

Click on the appropriate topic – such as Your Orders or Returns and Refunds. When you’ve worked through the online articles meant to help answer your questions, and have not found an answer, then an online chat option will become available.

Amazon Customer Service Numbers and Chat – Conclusion

If you’re looking to access Amazon’s customer service, then we’ve provided you with phone numbers to do so in both Canada and the US. On the other hand, if you’re looking to chat online with a customer service representative, you’ll have to work through the available FAQ’s and eventually will be presented with an option to chat online. This way, Amazon is lessening the number of people using the chat feature, if they’re able to provide answers to their questions without needing to contact a rep directly. But, the chat feature is always there when the FAQs and other help haven’t answered questions fully.

We hope this article has helped you get the customer service help you need! If you have other tips on Amazon customer service, we’d love to hear about them in our comments section below.

  • Okay…one more to make it a nice well rounded five deals of the day. This stainless steel milk frother helps you make Bulletproof coffee OR froths up milk for your homemade cappuccino or latte. Sorry Starbucks. Oh, and it comes with a handy stand for storage or you can just keep it out on the counter, since it’ll be getting a lot of use. $16.14 (Was $23.98.)

This was fun you guys! Please stay safe, and I hope you found a deal today that was exactly what you were hoping to find. 🙂

Cabela’s Flyer – Canada and US – Deals on Camping and Outdoor Supplies

Cabela’s is a very popular retailer that provides all an outdoorsman needs for fishing, hunting, outdoor wear and much more! There are 9 locations of Cabela’s in Canada, and 50 locations in the US. If you want to check out their latest flyer, then we have two easy links to share with you so you can check out the best deals and sales on at Cabela’s this week!

Cabela’s Flyer – Canada

There is one easy page to visit to find the Cabela’s flyer in Canada, at the store closest to you. Visit the Cabela’s Canada Flyers page, and then you’ll be asked to enter your postal code. Then, you can click on the store nearest you and you can view the latest flyer. Easy!

Cabela’s Flyer – USA

Cabela’s flyer in the USA was not quite as easy to find – as in, their flyers were not easily located on their website. BUT, we did manage to find the flyers through some reputable flyer websites. One of the best options we found was through Flyerify, so here is the link to the Cabela’s flyer on that site.

Cabela’s Flyer – Conclusion

I’ve always loved a good flyer! In fact, as a kid I used to sit around with a pile of weekly flyers and a calculator to discover what I could get for my (pretend) money. Boy, that sure makes me sound like I was an exciting child! Nowadays, of course, flyers are mostly found online. And that makes shopping easier, and saving money easier too. Which, as bargain finders, we truly love.

The New Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy (CERS) – Starts Today

A businesses space with a for rent sign to denote need for struggling businesses to apply for the new Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy program.

The New Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy (CERS) program begins to take applications today. Businesses that are struggling due to COVID-19 can now apply for this subsidy. To apply, you can go to the government of Canada’s website.

What is the New Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy (CERS)?

The new CERS program (Canada Emergency Rent subsidy) is a rent or mortgage subsidy for Canadian businessesnon profit organizations, or charities who have seen a drop in revenue due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The time period that the subsidy will cover is September 27, 2020 to June 2021.

The government’s website indicates that the subsidy will cover up to 65% of qualifying expenses. There is also an additional 25% of rent support for businesses, not profit organizations or charities that have been especially hard hit by mandatory public health orders. As a result, the hardest hit businesses can potentially receive a total rent subsidy of up to 90 %. These subsidy rates are in effect until December 19, 2020.

The new subsidy program payments will be made directly to qualifying renters or property owners without needing the participation of landlords. This is a change from the previous program where the landlords had to apply for the program and as a result the expected participation for the previous program was low.

Conclusion

The new Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy will be a welcome sight for many Canadian businesses. With the second wave of COVID-19 spiking all over the country, more restrictions and potential lockdowns seem inevitable. As a result, many struggling businesses are going to continue to struggle to keep afloat. Hopefully, this new program can help take some of the sting of the financial losses that will come with those further lockdowns. Unlike the last wage subsidy program, the government’s hope is that many more businesses will apply. Will this help? As the old saying goes, any help is good help but only time will tell. Please stay safe.

Larabars Amazon – Sale on Larabars – 16 pack only $13.97 (Peanut Butter chocolate chip variety)

Right now on Amazon.ca there is an excellent sale on a 16 pack box of Larabars. And we are talking the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Larabars. My faaaaavourite!!! For a 16 pack the sale price is only $13.97, or only $0.87 a bar. This is a great price! My trick is trying to wait until Larabars are a maximum of $1 each and then I’ll buy. But $0.87 each is a really good deal.


Larabar Gluten Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Fruit and Nut Energy Bar, 16-Count, 720 Gram
Current price at time of writing $13.97

Like other Larabar flavours?

Here are the current prices on some other Larabar favourites! The Peanut Butter chocolate chip bars just happen to be the lowest price on Amazon.ca right now.

Perfect for stashing in a lunch box, or even as a quick breakfast. I can attest to this, because my simple breakfast while working on the blogs is often a Larabar and homemade latte! If you love Larabars, stock up while they’re on sale.

Home Depot Customer Service – Text, Online Chat, and Phone Numbers

Home Depot is a well known and well loved home improvement store located throughout the US and Canada. Home Depot currently has 2285 stores open and operating for you to get all the supplies you need to finish that home renovation project. That’s a lot of stores! But, even though they have over two thousand stores, it’s still relatively easy to get in touch with customer service when you need help with your Home Depot order. We’re providing all the information we can to make getting that help easier than ever.

Home Depot Customer Service in Canada

First, we’ll start off in Canada. There are 182 Home Depot stores located in Canada. Plus, Home Depot provides multiple ways to get in touch with a customer service representative to sort out whatever problems you’re having with an order you’ve already placed OR with an order you’d like to place.

Home Depot Customer Service Chat

Prefer to type rather than talk on the phone? (Me too!) Then click this link to directly head over to a customer service chat with a Home Depot pro. It’s easy, and sometimes can be quicker to link with a Home Depot employee versus waiting on the phone line.

Home Depot Customer Service Text Line

If texting is your favourite way to communicate, then simply use this text number to contact Home Depot: THDCA (or 84322.) Again, remember this is for Canadian customers to use. The THDCA is easy to remember if you remember: “The Home Depot Canada.” If you’re a contractor, or shop at Home Depot for supplies a lot, then that might help you remember that handy text number.

Home Depot Customer Service Phone Number (Canada)

And finally, if you’d prefer to actually speak to another human, then Home Depot has one main phone number for customer service in Canada. It is: 1-800-628-0525. This customer service line runs Monday to Sunday, 8 am to 9 PM EST (eastern Standard time.) Right on the website, however, they say to use the two options we’ve mentioned earlier – chatting or texting – for the fastest overall service.

Home Depot Customer Service – US Customers

Now we head down south to the US, to provide Home Depot customer service information for customers who either are from the States OR made a purchase on the HomeDepot.com website. And yes, HomeDepot.com does ship internationally. And HomeDepot.com ships to Canada! So, if you find a product you’d like to purchase and ship home to Canada, then that is entirely possible. You’ll just need to check out additional charges and fees such as duty charges at the border. Plus, keep in mind that shipping charges will be significantly higher than within the US.

Home Depot Customer Service Text Number (US)

Yes, you can text Home Depot’s customer service department! This is a fast and easy way to resolve the issues with your order. Simply text your concern to: 38698 and a customer service rep will be in touch with you as soon as possible.

Home Depot Customer Service Phone Number (US)

The main customer service phone number to use regarding any customer service question or concern is: 1-800-HOME-DEPOT OR 1-800-466-3337.

Home Depot Customer Service Online Chat

I wasn’t able to find a link directly to Home Depot’s chat, but of course they do have that option available. Simply visit the HomeDepot.com main customer service page and then click on a little box to the right of the screen that says: “Live chat.”

Home Depot Customer Service and Help – Conclusion

We hope you’ve found exactly the information you needed to contact Home Depot’s customer service department. As always, please make sure to have your order information handy before you call, text or chat. Having all of those details will make it easier for the customer service reps to quickly resolve your issues. Happy shopping everyone!

Cuisinart Knives – Set of 6 knives with covers for only $29.99 (Regular price $49.99) Save 40%

There may come a point when your knives get downright annoying. When they just won’t cut properly anymore, then it may be time to invest in a new set of knives. If you’re looking for low-maintenance knives, these Cuisinart knives are perfect! They each come with a protective cover, so you can store them in your kitchen drawers without damaging the knives. And at $29.99 they are only about $5.00 per knife! Wow! Bargain hunters, we’ve found a good one here.

Please note that the 12 piece set means there are 6 individual knives with 6 matching covers. (Not 12 knives.)


Cuisinart 12-Piece Colour Knife Set with Matching Blade Guards
Was $49.99 – Now $29.99 Current price at time of writing

  • Stainless steel knives with a nonstick coating (makes it easy to slice through even stickier foods, like cheese!)
  • Knives can be sharpened with a regular knife sharpener. (The straight edged blades; the serrated knives will be very difficult to sharpen.)
  • Limited lifetime warranty (which is excellent given this price point)
  • Set Includes:
  • Paring knife – perfect for small cutting jobs or more ideally to pare – or peel – fruits and veggies. Just a handy little knife to have. This is also a perfect little knife to store in your lunch bag for at work, or for on a picnic! It’s perfectly safe too, as it has its own little protective covering.
  • Sandwich/bagel knife – A perfectly shaped knife for cutting into sandwiches or bagels. This knife features a serrated edge, making it ideal to cut through even thicker crusts of bread and down into the softer bread inside. A useful knife!
  • Santoku style knife – This all-purpose knife is excellent for chopping. It is in more of a Santoku style, meaning more up and down chopping. Its smaller size (versus the chef’s knife) means this will likely be a knife you grab an awful lot!
  • Slicing knife/Carving Knife – This knife is excellent for many purposes, but the longer and thinner blade means it’s perfect for slicing things like roast chicken (rotisserie chicken), ham, roast beef, etc. Creates nice, even slices. And for vegetarians, it would make a perfect knife for slicing even slices of tofu.
  • Chef’s knife – This knife is the workhorse in the kitchen! Use it for all your major chopping and cutting jobs while cooking – chopping and slicing veggies, meat, herbs, etc.
  • Bread knife – Just as its name suggests, this longer knife with serrated edges will make it very easy to slice through loaves of bread, buns, etc. The serrated ‘teeth’ allow the knife to cut through the crusts of bread and then down into the softer bread inside.

Video Conference/Zoom microphone – For Zoom chats, meetings and much more – 50% off – Now only $29.57

I think our motto for the year should be: “You’re still on mute! We can’t hear you!” How many times have all of us said that, or been told that this year on our countless Zoom meetings. If you use Zoom for work, other meetings OR to get together with friends and family from far away, then you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. Even doctor’s appointments can be via Zoom now!

Sometimes the problem is that we haven’t unmuted ourselves on Zoom. And other times our laptops or tablets are simply not quite up to the task of having a proper microphone. In that case having a USB microphone like this one will help tremendously to make sure that you’re being heard when you speak on a Zoom meeting.

And hey, it’s 50% off right now on Amazon!! We’re finding lots of excellent half price deals today. But, I honestly think this might be one of the most useful given the times we’re living in right now.
