When you order from Amazon, here is everything you need to know to get a great deal.
We take a look at how to find hidden discounts – and how to verify that your bargain is real.
Free delivery and shopping can help you lower the cost of your online order
With the help of savings experts, we will reveal six simple ways to save money when shopping at online retailers.
Up to 75% discount
Bargain hunters at LatestDeals.co.uk have developed a free tool to uncover hidden bargains on Amazon.
The amount you save depends on the item you are looking for.
However, they say you could get discounts of up to 70%.
Amazon is giving out freebies to Prime subscribers at random.
You need to register for the program online through the Your Account section and let Amazon know which categories you are most interested in samples from, e.g. B. Food or Beauty.
Of course, there’s no guarantee you’ll get a freebie – but let us know how you’re doing.
The perk also works on Amazon Alexa.
Fiona Hawkes, personal finance blogger who runs Savvy in Somerset, relies on them to try products before making a big purchase.
How often you can save money later, she explains: “The products often arrive with discount vouchers so that you can save on the purchase.
“Samples change quite often and in the past there have been Coca-Cola cans, toothpaste, energy drinks, crackers and coffee available.
“Just say, ‘Alexa, send me a sample.'”
Subscribe and save
Bargain blogger Mr Deals Manchester swears by this trick to save money on the items you regularly order.
He said, “When you subscribe to an item, you get money, but there are often special offers that mean an extra big discount.
“Subscribe and save [the item you want], then click on ‘earlier’ to have it delivered as usual – then cancel the subscription immediately so that you can pocket the savings. ”
But do the math first. Well worth it if you really save money buying in bulk – and how much you need.
There’s no point in spending extra money when you don’t need it.
Do your research
Oli Townsend, Assistant Deals and Features Editor at MoneySavingExpert, recommends comparing Amazon prices with those of other online retailers.
He said, “You can use sites like Google Shopping, PriceSpy, and Price Runner to do a quick price comparison.
“It also has thousands of daily deals and while there are bargains to be had, not all of them will be a winner handing out.”
For example, the website could claim you save £ 30 – but if you check the historian price, it might have been £ 50 less two weeks ago.
Get 40% off with warehouse deals
It’s a good idea to check out Amazon’s warehouse listings – this is where you can buy used and open products at a reasonable discount.
Earlier this week we revealed how you can get up to 40% off.
Note, however, that the packaging may not be the usual Amazon standard.
The same applies to the Amazon Outlet, where buyers can buy overlaid or faulty goods at a discount.
British Coupon Kid Jordon Cox said: “You often see things with slight defects like a battered box or slightly damaged – but this does not affect the usability of the items.
“The rest of the stuff is because they just ordered way too much for Christmas or a holiday and didn’t sell it, so they sell it for a cheaper price.
“I even saw £ 100 off a stroller that was used once in the past and was sent back to Amazon.
“The box was open, but the contents are fine.”
Split the cost
It is actually possible to have two adults on one Amazon Prime account.
Amazon Household means Prime users can link their account to that of another adult.
You both get access to Prime Delivery, Prime Video, and Prime Music.
Membership typically costs around € 7.99 per month – if two of you share the price, that’s less than € 4 each.
Just remember that your credit and debit card details are shared with each other. So choose someone you trust.
Have it delivered to you for free
Nobody likes to pay that extra £ 3 to £ 5 for delivery that is added to the end of your online order – so do your best to avoid this.
James Andrew, Senior Personal Finance Editor at Money, said, “The first thing to check is the free shipping interruption.
“If you’re paying for delivery as things stand, adding that little extra item to get you across the line can mean you pay less overall and get more.”
