Easiest hacks to save on Amazon
Holiday Season or not, it is exciting to spend less and get more when we shopping. If it’s that time of the year where all the MRPs are slashed, we suddenly get a shopping rush. But does that mean we have to wait for ‘End of Season Sale’ to get our favorite hoodie or shoes? How about a ‘No reason Sale’? Because that’s what we all want in our lives. So without wasting time, we’ll share some ways to save those bucks, not once, but each time you shop on Amazon.
Subscribe and Save big
Are there any items that you tend to buy frequently? These could be your household items like toothpaste, shampoo or such, which usually needs to be restocked every month. If yes, then you are in for saving big bucks each time you order them. Amazon let you subscribe to some items which you need each month. Once you subscribe, you get a whopping 15% discount every time. To top that, delivering those essentials every month on time at your doorstep is Amazon’s responsibility. That’s how you save big and free yourself from the worries of running out of important household items.
Grab that 90% off opportunity
If you are an avid shopper, this one’s for you. Every day Amazon will let you grab some of the items at huge discounts starting from 5% and going as high as 90%. All you need to do is stay at your toes to grab that opportunity as these deals are time-sensitive. Lasting generally for a few minutes, the deal could sometimes remain active for a few hours of the day. To find the deal of your dreams, you just have to click on ‘Today’s Deal’ section and choose Lightning Deals from the options. Just grab it up as it will last until the timer ends or the stock lasts, whichever is earlier.
