10 Easy Tips to Save More Money on Amazon

When you go to Amazon, you’ll find savings on everything from books and electronics to groceries and baby needs, but are you really getting the best deals available?

It’s no question that if you want something, you can probably find it on Amazon. The options go on and on — and it’s all one click away. Getting an Amazon deal is easy, but how do you get a steal?

Amazon Coupons

Amazon shoppers can find coupons on useful items, including cleaning supplies, groceries, household items, supplements and more. Simply click the “Clip Coupon” button, and add the item to your cart. In addition, for Amazon promo codes, check sites

Subscribe and Save

Sign up for Amazon’s “Subscribe and Save” program to get discounts on thousands of everyday items, like laundry supplies and baby products. Not only will you get free shipping, but you can also save up to 15 percent on your entire order.

Check out Amazon’s ‘Today’s Deals.’

“Today’s Deals” link at the top of most Amazon pages and typically include a “Deal of the Day,” “Lightning Deals” and other limited-time offers. You can even keep an eye on deals by clicking “Watch this deal”.

Sign Up Then Cancel Your Free Trial of Amazon Prime

Shoppers can sign up for a 30-day, free Amazon Prime trial, which offers free two-day shipping and special discounts.

You can take advantage of the freebies and offers before the trial runs out, and then cancel before the $119 annual fee or $12.99 monthly fee is automatically charged to your card.

Amazon Student

If you’re a college student, you can sign up for a free six-month trial of Prime Student, which offers free two-day shipping, access to unlimited photo storage and other benefits. After your free trial ends, Prime Student costs just $6.49 per month.

Use deal tracker sites.

Prices for items on Amazon can go up and down, so sites like will alert you when an item you want drops in price. This website also offers millions of items’ pricing histories to help you determine when is the right time to buy.

Amazon Smile

Instead of donating money to a charity separately, donate through Amazon. With the AmazonSmile program, 0.5 percent of your purchase price is donated to the charitable organization of your choice.

Simply visit, and shop tens of millions of products that are eligible for donations. There are nearly 1 million charities to choose from, so there’s sure to be a cause that will appeal to your heart.

Choose no-rush shipping, and get shopping credits.

Amazon Prime members who choose free no-rush shipping instead of free two-day shipping receive complimentary promotional credits that can be used toward future purchases.

Once the item ships, you’ll receive an email with the credit’s details, including how to redeem it.

Gold Box Deals

Amazon has a little feature they like to call their “Gold Box.” This is really just their deal of the day type of section. They have daily deals on a large number of products, but only two or three get into the Gold Box.

It’s not hard to find the daily deals on Amazon, but I will show you where to look anyway. I’m just kind that way! Just look for the link below when you’re on Amazon. If you can find “Today’s Deals” then you got to the Gold Box section.

Cheap add-on items.

Amazon sells tons of everyday, affordable “add-on” items, including toilet paper, vitamins and toiletries. The only issue is that you have to spend a total of $25 in order to get these deals.
