Amazon Shopping Tips

If there’s one universal truth, it might be that everyone loves Amazon. There’s a reason they are the #1 retailer in the world and it’s because they have everything you need at affordable prices and great shipping. One day they might take over the world! If they do it’s best to know how to take advantage of shopping on Amazon because there are some great tips and tricks that will save you some extra money on your next purchase.

Tip #1: Use Honey

Honey is a browser extension that automatically adds the best coupon to your purchase and it works on every website not only Amazon. I’ve saved hundreds with the extension and it’s completely free. Honey will scour every single coupon on the internet and try to apply it at checkout. Even if there are no coupons available Honey will usually give you ‘points’. The points can then be redeemed into your PayPal account when you’ve acquired enough!

Tip #2: CamelCamelCamel

Price tracking on Amazon should be essential before making impulse purchases. The website and extension will let you know about the biggest price drops and how much a product typically goes on sale for or if the price is higher than usual. With CamelCamelCamel you’ll know whether or not it’s worth waiting for a sale. When I purchased a bed through Amazon I saw that it typically goes on sale for an additional $200 off, so I waited one month until the sale and got to save! It’s completely free and a must-have for your Amazon Shopping Arsenal. 

Tip #3: Product Subscriptions

Are there any products on Amazon that you find yourself buying every month? Well with Amazon’s product subscriptions you can have that produce mailed to you every month and save as much as 15% each order. You can cancel at any time and add up to 5 products to be subscribed to. It’s great for essentials like deodorant or other items that you use monthly.
