Amazon tips and tricks

December 15th, 2009 at 03:40 pm



Being 8.5 months pregnant, I'm doing most of my Xmas shopping online this year. I'm too tired to scour the sales and and paranoid of sick people.

I'm usually thrifstoring gifts, but this year I also wanted some new things and had great luck with Amazon daily deals.

I bought hubby two magazine subscriptions that normally go for $25 only $5 each.

The board games I bought as gifts were all 1/2 of the price than Target or Walmart wanted for them, with free shipping.

Getting a trial Amazon Prime subscription and canceling within 30 days will let you get free shipping on everything for the month.


Filler Item Finder
is great for when you're really, really close to $25 on your order total and want to get that free shipping.

There are also tons of sites like spendfish.com that list all the most marked down items on amazon that day.

Luckily I have a clear idea of what I want to get beforehand, because if you end up buying a bunch of stuff just cause it's on sale, obviously that defeats the purpose.

    Amazon seems particularly awesome this year. I hardly shop anywhere else, any more.

    Thank goodness for the internet! Big Grin

    I love that filler item site. I didn't know about that.

    I love Amazon. Ordered a bunch of stuff from them over the past few weeks. Just got a box today and more on the way. Prices are usually as good or better than the stores. Free shipping over $25. And I have a ton of gift certificate credit from surveys that I do.

    That site is really neat! Never heard of it and I'm surprised about that since I live on deal sites.

    Amazon makes it a lot easier than trying to lead yourself through the crowds to the mall, that's for sure! I prefer shopping online, anyway, because it seems I can always find better deals than in the stores. Having some insurance of lower costs and not having to make a trip? I'm all over that... =)

    You can now get the Amazon Prime for free for one year if you have an ".edu" email address.
