Save Big with Amazon Coupons
Amazon offers many coupons off many products! They are so easy to add to your account and can help you save big. One of my FAVORITE ways to save big is to find Subscribe & Save items to use the coupons for to save even more! Prime Members also have a page with their own exclusive coupons! Speaking of Subscibe & Save…

Save up to 15% more with Subscribe & Save
One of the more genius ideas Amazon has pulled off! Select home, baby and personal care products offer Subscribe & Save as an option during check out. Subscribe & Save is an automatically recurring delivery option that will give you an extra 5% off the product, or 15% off when you subscribe to 5 or more products. You can change the delivery dates or cancel at any time. You’ll also score FREE SHIPPING.

Amazon has a NEW really cool membership program for Kids called FreeTime Unlimited. You can Score 30 Days for FREE! You'll get Unlimited access to 13,000 kid-friendly books, movies, TV shows, educational apps, and games. Prime AND Non-Prime members can sign up for this freebie

Plus, if you’re not happy with a purchase you can swap it out completely free.

Add-On Items = Bigger Savings
One of my biggest Amazon addictions is purchasing add-on items. Add-on items are heavily discounted products that would cost Amazon too much to ship on their own so they require you to purchase at least $25 worth of products in order to unlock the add-on price. What most people don’t know is that you can add $25 worth of Add-on items to your cart in order to qualify. PLUS, if available, you can use an Amazon Coupon & Subscribe & Save to save even more! We’ve posted deals for $2 razors and $1 mascara with these tips!

FREE Washington Post for 6 months
Amazon Prime members can score a free 6 months Washington Post digital subscription for completely free. It’s so easy.

Prime members get 20% off diapers & wipes subscriptions, a 15% Baby Registry completion discount, and personalized age-based recommendations, compliments of Amazon Family. Plus, learn how you can score a totally FREE baby box filled with awesome baby products compliments of Amazon Family worth $35.

Complaining Pays Off
Did your Amazon Prime order not arrive by the guarantee delivery date? Contact Amazon Customer Service. Amazon takes good care of their customers. It is not unheard of to receive a promotional credit for the inconvenience or even an extension to your prime trial and membership. My preferred method to contact Amazon is by their online chat option. It’s fast, the representatives are friendly and they are always willing to help make it right. 

Amazon Wedding Registry Freebies
Score a 20% off coupon and free products with purchase. We put together a whole list of all the Amazon Wedding registry benefits HERE.

Free Amazon Music Unlimited
Move over Pandora! Amazon is offering a FREE 30 day Trial of Amazon Music Unlimited. You will be able to stream your favorite music anytime, anywhere with NO annoying adds.

Order Add-on Items with Alexa
Have an Echo or Alexa device? Order any add-on items with her and you won't have to meet that pesky $25 minimum order requirement. I love my echo dot! It's pretty much paid for her self in one month. It's also GREAT to use with the music unlimited trial.
