Amazon Hacks to Save You Even More Money

If you are like me you are a huge fan of Amazon! I am a Prime member and I can’t tell you how much I love that Free 2-Day shipping, it has saved me tons of money over the years. But, did you know there are other awesome Amazon hacks to save you, even more, money with your purchases!? I am going to share these hacks with you, to help maximize your savings with each purchase you make!

Amazon is a very convenient place to shop because they have pretty much everything you will need. If you shop often and are not a Prime member, I suggest taking the plunge! Some of the hacks and tips listed below, are for Prime members only, but there are some that any customer who uses Amazon can use to save extra money!

Maximize Your Savings With These Amazon Shopping Tricks 

 

Refund If Price Drops

Use Paribus.co and sign up for Free today. Then each time you place an order through Amazon, it will keep track. If they find a price drop, you will get an email from them letting you know, and you can submit a claim for a refund. or a refund on your behalf. Amazon only offers refunds for those items that are sold and shipped by Amazon, not third-party suppliers.

Cash Back Sites 

Ebates and BeFrugal both offer cash back on Amazon purchases when they fit in certain categories. Some of the categories are shoes, furniture, handbags, etc. You can get a percentage back on your purchase when it qualifies. It is worth signing up at one or both sites, to maximize your savings!

Wait to Place Order

Add items you are interested into your cart, and let them sit for a few days. Make sure you are signed into your Amazon account when you do this so it knows you. Then after a few days, you will get a reminder email from Amazon stating you have items left in your cart. Sometimes, not always, you will get a price reduction, to entice you to buy! So, if you have a little bit of time to waste, and don’t need the items right away, let them sit and see if you get a price drop!

Coupons 

Just like other stores, you can use Amazon coupons to clip virtually to save you some money! Just search for the brand or product you are wanting to buy to see if they have a coupon for it. Sometimes you will see the coupon under the price of the item when you are searching around, but if you don’t see it, go the coupon page to search.

Join Swagbucks for FREE Gift Cards 

If you have free time join Swagbucks and earn rewards for answering questions and earn points, which you can later redeem for Amazon Gift Cards.

Free Prime for College Students 

If you have an .edu email address you can get a Free Prime 6 month membership, that is just for college students!

Avoid Potential Taxes

This works sometimes, depending on where you live. Look at third-party sellers, for items you want to buy, and depending on where they are located could save you a little money on tax. You won’t get the free two-day shipping since they are not fulfilled and shipped at Amazon, but it can save you a little cash on taxes. Just research to ensure you are actually saving going this route.

Amazon Store Card 

By signing up for the Amazon Store Card, you will get a permanent rebate of 5% off anything you buy!

Add Second Adult to Prime Account 

You and your partner can use Prime, without paying for two accounts. Just add them on the list, and they just have to have the same address as you. Once approved they will get the same benefits. You both will have access to all the credit cards on the account, so take note of that.

Special Email Discounts 

On occasion, Prime members will get emails with special exclusive discounts for members. At one time Prime members got an extra 50% off Amazon Echo, the Fire TV stick and more.

1 Month Free When 2 Day Shipping Fails 

If Amazon fails and your items you ordered don’t arrive in two days, contact customer service. They generally offer a refund or even 1 free month of Prime membership!

Warehouse Deals 

Make sure to look at the Amazon Warehouse page, to find any extra savings. You can find items that are 50% off or more, that might be used or refurbished, and they are all tested by Amazon to ensure they function properly.

Amazon Outlet

The Amazon Outlet sells pre-owned items for up to 80% off, great place to find awesome deals. They also sell out of season items, overstock and more.

No-Rush Shipping 

If you are not in a rush, choose the no-rush shipping option. They will offer you a $1 credit towards an Instant Video, by selecting this, which is a nice perk!

Price Drop Notification

CamelCamelCamel is a great tool to be signed up with. Get alerts when an item you are interested in has a price drop!

Get $20 when you sign up for Hulu

If you’re a TV lover, Hulu has an offer through Swagbucks where you get $20 (paid in the form of points called SB) for trying Hulu for a month. That will cost you $7.99, so you’re making $12 on the deal!

Hulu has tons of current and classic programming, movies, brilliant original series, and more. Here’s how you do it:

1. Click this link.
2. Create your Swagbucks account (takes 30 seconds)
3. Click “Continue” and sign up for Hulu

You then take those points and turn them into free gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, Walmart, Target, or PayPal cash.

This is a great time to join because when you sign up through the link above and get your 2000 SB, you’ll get a bonus 300 SB at the beginning of September. So that’s $20 (2000 SB) for trying Hulu plus your $3 (300 SB) bouns, which gets you 2300 SB, which means you make $15 total for trying Hulu!
