10 minutes en avance

"Je suis arrivée 10 minutes en avance" seems to be common in Montreal, QC, Canada. Is this incorrect?

This question relates to:
French lesson "Expressing timeliness (late, early) - precise"

Hi Connie,

It is correct you can say both:

Je suis arrivé(e) avec dix minutes d'avance.

ou bien

Je suis arrivé(e) dix minutes en avance.

Hope this helps!
