The Obvious (And Not So Obvious) Ways to Save Money Using Amazon

Posted on March 20th, 2014 by Discount Debbie

I love to shop through Amazon.com. They have a wide selection of products to choose from. That said, I still don’t like to spend more than I have to. That’s why I have found a few tricks to saving money when shopping through Amazon.

Coupons

Coupons are not just print outs for groceries anymore. Amazon.com has coupons available on their site. When you log in, go to the top of the page, and click on today’s deals. Not only will you find those things that are on sale by percentage, you will also find coupons for electronics, household items, and more.  Take advantage of these tools. You may get what you want for less!

Build Up Gift Certificates

I love to get free Amazon gift cards. I have gotten them from Swagbucks.com , Zoombucks.com , 4loot.com , and Bing.com . Recently  I found out that I don’t have to save the codes in my email account and only use them when checking out. Instead I go to my account, then to my payment information. After that I choose “Apply a gift card to your account” under gift cards and it’s saved into my account for future use. This way I know that the codes won’t get lost, deleted, or stolen because they are already applied to my account. It’s also a great way to save up for birthday or Christmas gifts.

Buy Used

Many products have a buy used option giving a description of the condition of the item you are looking at as well as cost and shipping and handling. Often in spite of the shipping and handling costs, the products I buy used through Amazon are just as good as a brand new counterpart and still the better deal.

Free Shipping

Last, but not least, I look for items that have free shipping. Some items only give free shipping if you have spent a certain amount of money. You can also reduce the cost of shipping by choosing  a less expensive shipping option. This usually means that you will be getting the item a little bit later, so give yourself plenty of time before important events to receive the item. Speaking of shipping, when sending a gift it’s cheapest to send the order directly to your friend or relative. Though back to free shipping, there is Amazon Prime (soon to be $99 a year) which buys you free shipping for the whole year (plus some other perks) but currently that’s out of my budget. With some careful online shopping I can skip Amazon Prime and still find free shipping.


Hot Deal Round Up

Posted on February 21st, 2014 by Coupon Cathy

Friday is a good day for a hot deal round-up, don’t you think? I have already taken advantage of one of these deals today. So, I thought I’d share these hot deals with you!

I always notice a Disney princess deal because my daughter is in a Disney Princess stage! Amazon has the Sofia the First Sofia’s Transforming Dress for only $10.00–normally $29.99. This is a great gift to hand on to for future birthdays or holidays. Shipping is free with Amazon Prime or a $35 qualifying purchase.

I’ve debated getting a scale for a long time now. But, today there’s a great deal over at Amazon. Get the Ozeri Touch 440 lb Digital Bath Scale in black for only $24.00. The same scale sells for $49.95 at The Home Depot. It’s on sale for $39.95. But, when you add the item to the cart and proceed to check out, you’ll see that the price drops to $23.97. And, I know it works because I just purchased it! :)

The scale features three touch buttons for easy operation and four icons for body fat, hydration, muscle and bone measurements. Get measurements within seconds of stepping on the scale. Shipping is free with Amazon Prime or a $35 qualifying purchase.

Best Diaper Deals This Week

Posted on November 4th, 2013 by Coupon Cathy

I usually get diapers from either Target or Amazon. And, I’m always amazed at how soon I need to refill my supply. So, I am a little disappointed that there aren’t any great Pampers deals at Target. But, apparently, you can score some pretty good deals everywhere else! So, if you are like me and you are going to need diapers pretty soon, it may be an Amazon week for you. If not, you can pick up your diapers at almost any of the other major national chain stores. Happy shopping…and enjoy that baby while he/she is still a baby. Time flies and they grow up so fast!
