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!

Have you been sucked into the Fidget Frenzy?

Everywhere that you look, you are sure to see a kid with a Fidget Spinner. The Springs HOTTEST toy has taken over– at every checkout at every store you will see them!  Personally, I don’t understand the whole point. The claim is that it helps individuals with ADHD, Anxiety and Autism.  As an anxiety suffer, it tends to make me more anxious but, I have read research that shows there is no doubt that it helps those suffering with Autism.  Maybe it works for some with these disorders, I can only speak to mine.  I consider it a toy–with no benefit, other than to keep their hands busy!

Nonetheless, I have nothing against them but, find some pleasure in knowing I made it a few months without being sucked into the latest frenzy.  However, my days are numbered before I join the craze. Last night, my daughter, added this fidget spinner to the top of her birthday wishlist. Which is really a good thing because you can easily get a fidget spinner for under $10.

What are your thoughts on the fidget spinner? We would love to hear what you think!

Check out this awesome speaker! Not what I was expecting at all.

This post may contain affiliate links. Please review our Disclosure and Privacy Policy for full details.

Check out this Sound Machine Waterproof Bluetooth Shower Speaker. I purchased this on Friday and with Amazon Prime I received it on Monday. With the price, I was pretty sure that the sound would stink (but not as bad as my singing ;)). Turns out, I was completely wrong. Don’t let the small package fool you, this bad boy has some amazing sound. It comes with a charger and after a few hours plugged in it is ready to go!

I was so excited to try it out in the shower but, my little girl was fighting sleep. Sooooo……since I am really not that patient, I opened Pandora, and connected my phone to the speaker. I put her on some nighttime jams and she was out like a light within 5 minutes.

Finally, mommy time, I change the station and stick it to the shower wall. The first time I stuck it to the wall it did a slow motion slide down. Yikes! I stuck in under the shower head and let the suction cup get wet.  I then pushed it against the shower wall and it stayed there for the duration of my shower.

The sound is PERFECT! I mean, it’s not Bose but it is WAY more than I thought I would receive for the price. It also has a built-in mic so you can make or receive calls (not that I want to talk to anyone in the shower ;)) but you do have the option.

I can’t wait for the warmer weather, because this will be great for outdoor play near a sprinkler or the pool. In fact, there are so many uses other than the shower for this little speaker. So far, I have found that it works well for lullabies for bedtime, meditating, sticking to the car window so the kiddo can have her movie on her tablet with good sound, cleaning around the house, outdoor time, and I am sure the list will continue to grow.

I sent a message to the seller and right now they are offering an exclusive coupon to our Savvy Savers for an additional 10% off and already low price. You can snag this bad boy on Amazon for $9.95 (75% off) and then use code: N5AJNDFA for the extra 10% off.

And….they also have a pretty good deal going on where if you purchase additional speakers you save even more. Check below for all the codes possible on this speaker.

  • Save 25% on EACH speaker if you buy 5  Enter code   GGB4K6GS at checkout
  • Save 20% on EACH speaker if you buy 4  Enter code   7IS4TDYI at checkout.
  • Save 15% on EACH speaker if you buy 3  Enter code    C6RM5QLG at checkout
  • Save 10% on EACH speaker if you buy 2  Enter code   O8G9V7NM at checkout.
    Here’s how (some restrictions may apply)
