Amazon dominates the online retail space. Its product category is constantly growing and prices are always much lower than the competition. What’s more, the website is designed to cater to budget-concerned consumers. Here are five budget-friendly tips that allow you the convenience of online shopping with the ability to save some major cash.
Sign up for the “Subscribe and Save” program
Save on recurring items like baby products, snacks, pet food, or laundry supplies by signing up for the Amazon Subscribe and Save service. This allows you to access a 15% discount on your order. Shipping is free.
Sign up for the Amazon Family program
A household with a new baby should never be out of essentials like diapers, baby wipes, formula, and baby food, but repeat orders of these items can drain your wallet faster than you think. Sign up for the Amazon Family Program to get a 20% discount on baby essentials. You even get a free baby registry welcome box when you sign up.
Get a free Amazon Prime trial
Amazon Prime allows you access to the zippy two-day shipping feature, free Prime Video streaming, unlimited music streaming, and a lot more. The 30-day trial is completely free and once you decide to subscribe, it’s a meager $119 for an annual membership fee.
Keep abreast of upcoming and current deals
You can do this by signing up for “Today’s Deals” on Amazon which allows you access to limited-time offers on several items. The “Lightning Deals” and “Deal of the day” offer great discounts and packages on your purchases. A bonus feature is the “Watch this deal” option which allows you to monitor deals and stay ahead of the game.
Clip coupons on to your purchases
Select the deal and coupon you want and add the coupon eligible item to your cart. Amazon automatically applies the discount at checkout.
