Let Amazon deliver it, and avoid lugging huge, overpriced bags from the store. Stock up on household essentials, grooming and beauty items, toys, cleaning supplies, pantry items and lots more!
How Do I Save with Amazon Subscribe & Save?
Subscribe & Save prices are always priced lower than a one-time purchase – from a few cents to several dollars. In fact, you’ll save 5% automatically on each product you purchase – on up to 4 products. After 4, you’re in for MORE savings!
When you have at least 5 subscriptions you’ll automatically get 15% off your entire order! 5% for 1-4 items, and a sweet 15% off for 5+ subscriptions! But what if you don’t have 5 subscription items in a single month? We have a tip for that!
SAVE SPARK TIP: To score that 15% off your total, you need 5 items in your subscriptions for a month. We order super cheap filler items between $1-$3 so that we can still get 15% off, without signing up for something we don’t really need.
Lots of Subscribe & Save items have coupons you can click to save even MORE. You’ll see these on the product page. Click the coupon before selecting the Subscribe & Save option to get the additional discount. Plus, these percent-off coupons are calculated before the Subscribe & Save discount, which means you save even more! You may want to bookmark the Subscribe & Save Coupon Page to see the coupons available every day.
Amazon Subscribe & Save Tips:
- Set your delivery date to the same day each month – that way it’s easy to know when to expect your packages! You can easily change this in your account. You can even pause or get deliveries sooner.
- You’ll get an email 3 days before each subscription ships. Be sure to check the prices – because having a subscription doesn’t guarantee you’ll pay the same price each time. You’ll be charged the current price for every item in your subscription.
- Grab things you know you use frequently, and don’t mind stockpiling in your garage. Some months, you may have extra, while others you might be able to skip or delay a shipment. Paper towels, toilet paper, your favorite cleaners, coffee, snacks, dish soap, feminine hygiene products, etc. are all things you can probably feel good about stocking up on, even if you aren’t using them immediately.
