Easy Ways to Save Money on Amazon.com Posted: June 21st, 2015
When my second child was born, 4 years ago, I found it hard to get out, buy groceries and buy gifts in the middle of winter with a newborn. Then I discovered Amazon, a one-stop shopping website that saved me both time & money!
Here are some Easy Ways to Save with the Amazon Prime Membership:
1. Choose No Rush shipping
When you choose the No Rush Shipping option at checkout, you will receive a $1 digital media credit.
2. Shop through Ebates
When you shop through Ebates you can get up to 3% Cash Back on your purchases.
3. Open Box or Returned Items
There is a whole section on Amazon for items that have been opened or returned. These items are then offered to customers at Deep Discounts. Click Here for more details.
4. Amazon Outlet
Amazon has an entire section dedicated to Outlet Deals. Think shopping at the Outlets but online in the comfort of your own home!
My favorite deals are in the Manager Specials. I can usually find some great deals on organic items and other snacks for the kids in this section. These deals change daily so you need to check back often!
5. Pre-Order Movies with Amazon's Price Guarantee
When you pre-order a DVD, Book, CD or Video Game on Amazon it comes with their Low Price Guarantee. That means if the pre-order price decreases between your order time and the end of the day of the release date, you will receive the lowest price.

If you purchase something on Amazon and you notice within 7 days that the price has dropped you can call Amazon's Customer Service and they will issue you a refund for the difference.
