ways to save on Amazon     One very well known thing is I love shopping at Amazon.com.  I am a prime member and I shop online regularly.  That doesn’t mean I think Amazon is the best price all of the time. We love a good deal and the convenience of Amazon, but not every bargain magically floats to the surface. The online retailer offers several ways to save money that you may not know about, and with a few strategies you can save even more.  

-----------------------------------------------------

  ♥ Amazon Warehouse Deals I am only adding this one to my list because people still ask me about it or seem amazed it exists.  Amazon has a little known section of their site which encompass deals from returns or broken boxes during shipments. They analyze their entire stock and inventory and ones they can’t sell as new goes into their Amazon Warehouse Deals section.    

-----------------------------------------------------

  ♥ Amazon Local Save up to 75% at local businesses including bars, restaurants, retailers, events, entertainment and more! PLUS FREE Coupons!  

-----------------------------------------------------

  ♥ Subscribe & Save Amazon has a subscribe and save section for everyday items.  They have had this program for some time, but many don’t even know about it.  You can shop Amazon’s Subscribe and Save section to see all of the products they have to offer.  This program sends out regular shipments of the items you need on a regular basis.  They offer discounts on said items.  If you have 5 or more subscriptions delivered on your monthly delivery day, then Amazon takes off 15%!  You can setup what you want, then when you want it by each month.  The discounts are identified on the product pages.  You don’t have to worry about buying them each month. Amazon just sends them to you at a discount.  If you don’t like it anymore, you can cancel and the items come with free shipping!  

-----------------------------------------------------

  ♥ Add Items to Your Shopping Cart, but Don’t Check Out I have to admit this one is a tip many don’t know about, but it isn’t 100% effective. I add it  here because I have seen it work and have done it myself.  This tactic is something I like to call “forcing a promotion.”  Why?  You are trying to push Amazon to give you a promotion for an item you want to buy.  Now, they might not like this, but it can work here and there.  What you do is shop Amazon like you normally would.  When you are done shopping and have all your items in your cart, leave them there.  You have to be signed into your Amazon account for this to work.  Don’t actually buy the items.  Just leave them in your shopping cart and leave Amazon for a few days.  I have found times when Amazon will send you an email about finishing your checkout, but then gives you a promotion or discount code for the items in your cart.  I have saved up to 20% one time when doing this method, but again, this is hit or miss.  You really can’t hurt yourself trying it, so why not?  If you need an item quickly, then you shouldn’t try to force a promotion. It can take a few days and Amazon has to believe you are just sitting on the items.  

-----------------------------------------------------

  ♥ Amazon Coupons  Check the coupons page before you place an order to see if there are any coupons that you can activate. These include coupons for groceries and household essentials, as well as coupons for housewares, electronics and more!  

-----------------------------------------------------

 

♥ Sign Up for E-mail Notifications Want to be the first to know about deals? Then, sign up for one or more of Amazon`s e-mail alerts. Newsletters to choose from:

   

-----------------------------------------------------

  ♥ Discount Amazon Gift Cards Purchase Amazon Gift Cards for 3% OFF from Cardpool.  They will not always be in stock, but you can set up an email alert to let you know when they do have them available.  What’s cool about these discounted cards is that you can stack the 3% OFF on top of any additional discount or promotion!  

-----------------------------------------------------

  ♥ Cash Back through Ebates  Get a 3% Rebate on purchases from select categories through Ebates  

-----------------------------------------------------

 

♥ Buy Used Find an item that you want on Amazon, but not thrilled with the price? Then, check to see if you can buy it used. Amazon allows private sellers to post their used items up for sale alongside the new items. Just look for the link that says "# used and new for sale" and click on it to see what`s available.

 

-----------------------------------------------------

  ♥ Amazon Trade In  If there`s something you need to get rid of, consider Amazon`s trade-in program. What`s great about this is it`s easy to look up the specific item you want to trade and you`ll be able to see the price you`ll get for it. It takes less effort to trade in the item and earn cash versus trying to list the item to resell it to others. Keep in mind that the items you trade in have to be in good condition, and if they don`t meet Amazon`s standards, they will be shipped back to you without charge.  

-----------------------------------------------------

  ♥ Daily Amazon Deals  Amazon offers an extra discount on one item each day, the Gold Box Deal of the Day, and that discount can be quite substantial – sometimes as much as 75% off. Get in the habit of checking the deal each day, and you may just find a bargain on something that you need.   Where to Find It: Click on the "Today`s Deals" link at the top of any Amazon page, and select "Gold Box" from the menu. The Gold Box Deal appears at the top left corner of the page.  

-----------------------------------------------------

  ♥ Clearance  There are items priced to move, starting at 1¢ at times!  How cool is that!? And image how much you can REALLY save!  

-----------------------------------------------------

  ♥ Amazon Prime Purchase an item that you don’t want to pay shipping on but can’t find anything else to buy?  Sign up for the FREE Amazon Prime Trial.  It’s a 30 day offer and you will get FREE shipping on most items as well as FREE streaming of thousands of movies and TV shows and FREE Kindle Books.  Don’t forget to cancel if you don’t intend on continuing the service, although it is a great deal!   Share Amazon Prime: If the cost of Amazon Prime is too high, split the cost by sharing the service with others. You can add up to four "household" members by following these instructions: Head to "Your Account," then, once signed in, "Manage Prime Membership." There you`ll see your Prime membership status, but scroll down a bit and look for "Invite a household member."  You need to provide a name, email address, relation, and a birthday for each member. When they move to activate the Prime benefits, they`ll need to know your own birthday. There`s no real "household" requirement, though, and your friends or roommates can still fit, if they don`t mind being your "brother/sister." Your Prime sharing only extends the free two-day shipping to relatives and friends, not the Prime video or Kindle book benefits, but nobody should be complaining when you grant them a much better online shopping experience.   Amazon doesn`t define what a "household" member means, so it`s left up to your discretion.  

-----------------------------------------------------

  ♥ Free supersaver shipping  If you`re not in a rush and don`t have Amazon Prime, wait until your shopping cart has $35 worth of goods so that you qualify for the free supersaver shipping. It will deliver your items in five to eight business days after the items are available for shipping.  

-----------------------------------------------------

  ♥ Amazon Outlet On top of Amazon’s warehouse deals, they also have an outlet section.  You can go there and find deep discounts on new items every day.  Amazon’s outlet has overstocks and last years models.  If they need to get rid of inventory, they go into the outlet section.  You can even pick a category and the amount of savings associated and shop for the products that meet that criteria.  I like Amazon outlet and have saved good money using it.    

-----------------------------------------------------

 

♥ Get a Free Android App and Heavily Discounted Kindle Book Every Day Amazon has two particularly useful daily deals: the Free App of the Day (Android) and the Kindle Daily Deal. To promote their app store, Amazon chooses one premium app to offer for free every day. The Kindle Daily Deal is similar, providing one heavily discounted book on a daily basis. If you have an Android device, the free app space is definitely worth watching. If you enjoy reading on an electronic device of some kind (as Kindle apps are available for practically everything), you`ll also want to check the Kindle deals as well.

 

-----------------------------------------------------

  ♥ The Two Browser Trick One of the most secretive ways to save on Amazon is to run your own little price comparison.  First, you log into your Amazon account like you normally would do when shopping on Amazon.com.  Find the product you want to purchase, but don’t add it to your cart. Next, open a new browser (better if it were a completely different browser, like open Amazon originally in your favorite browser, then open up Amazon.com again in a new browser).  Clear you cookies to make sure you are starting fresh.  Navigate to the same Amazon product page and check the price.  The point of this trick is there are times when Amazon will show lower prices to non-Amazon customers because they want them to buy.  They show slightly higher prices to logged-in Amazon customers because they know you will pay the price for the product.  This trick can be used on a number of retail e-commerce sites.  I have seen it work and have done it myself.  Now, as with the add to cart trick, this is not 100%, but it does work.  You can even sometimes ask a friend in a different city to check the price and they might have a different one.  

-----------------------------------------------------

 

♥ Look for a Lightning Deal Be lightning quick, and you`ll be rewarded. Amazon`s Lightning Deals promotion offers an extra coupon savings on a single featured item – but only for four hours or until all of the coupons are used.

 

Where to Find It: Click on the "Today`s Deals" link at the top of any Amazon page, and select "Gold Box" from the menu. The "Top Lightning Deal" appears in the right corner of the page, and the rest of the Lightning Deals run below it.  

-----------------------------------------------------

 

♥ Sign Up for Student Discounts We love student discounts—forever. Amazon decided to join in on the fun with a program called Amazon Student. Not only can you can get free Amazon Prime for six months as part of the program, but exclusive deals and promotions. Definitely sign up for the program when you`re headed off to college. It`s a good way to save money when stocking up on dorm supplies.

 

-----------------------------------------------------

 

♥ Amazon Mom Discounts Joining Amazon Mom will get you the same benefits as Prime, but it will cost you the same price. However, you get additional benefits such as 20 percent off diapers and wipes.

 

-----------------------------------------------------

 

♥ Use the price guarantee If a price drops on an item within 30 days of when you bought it, call customer service and as for the difference refunded.
