These days, people often say “I can get it on Amazon for cheaper,” and they do their shopping online. But what if I told you that you could be saving more money by making a few simple changes to how you do your Amazon shopping?
Here’s how to do it:
Subscribe To Save More Money
Do you buy some items regularly on Amazon, such as contact solution, dog food, or pantry staples? If you do, you might be missing a great opportunity to save some money. Some items feature a “Subscribe & Save” option. You can get items for cheaper by scheduling them to be ordered and delivered on a monthly basis If you’re going to buy these things anyway, why not save a few dollars each time you pay for them?
Save Money By Donating
Rather than making donations to your favorite charities separately from your shopping, why not accomplish two things at one time? If you visit smile.amazon.com and do your regular Amazon dropping through this link, Amazon will donate o.5 percent of your purchases to a charity of your choice. While it’s not much, this is a free way to make a small difference in the world.
Use Ebates To Get Cash Back
Ebates is a dropping site that you can use to drop at all of your favorite online stores, including Amazon! When you make a purchase at your favorite store through Ebates, a percentage of your purchase will be refunded to you by Ebates!
Do you drop on Amazon more than three times a month? How much do you spend on shipping each time? If you are an avid Amazon shopper, investing in Amazon Rime is sure to save you money.
The annual membership currently costs $99. This price includes.
- Free two-day shipping

You can add up to six members of one household to a single prime account. Aren’t sure if you buy enough to make Rime worth it? Open up your family’s Amazon accounts and check out how much you spent on shipping in the last 12 months. If it totals more than $80, you should invest in Prime to get your items faster and with free shipping.
Family & Student Discounts
Amazon has a few different programs that are for specific audiences, such as students or new families. These programs will help you save money on essential items that you will be buying anyway. If you are a student, sign up for an Amazon Student account using your school email address as proof. Doing thisv011 give you access to a six-month free membership of Amazon Prime (see #4). After your trial is up, you will be able to renew your Prime access for half-off.
If you regularly buy things like diapers, baby toys, and other family related items, check out the Amazon Family program, which will allow you to save on things like typical baby registry items and more.
Not In A Rush? Get Some Credit!
If you are an Amazon Prime member, you have the choice between free two-day dripping and regular free shipping. Many people don’t think much of it and choose the faster option, but you can get promotional credit by opting for dower shipping!
