If you love shopping on Amazon, we have a few tips and tricks to help you save money. Read on to find out how to get the best deals on Amazon.
Opt for no-rush shipping: If you are a Prime member, you get guaranteed two-day shipping for free. However, during high-demand periods, Amazon may give you the option to choose no-rush shipping, which usually takes an additional 3 days, and, in return, you get some credit (usually of around $1). If you don’t need the items you are purchasing immediately, it makes sense to opt for no-rush shipping.
Get the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa® Card: This credit card is a must-have given how many benefits it offers. Once you are approved for the card, you get an Amazon gift card worth $150 immediately. What’s more, you get a cashback of 5% when you shop at Amazon or Whole Foods Market. Further, you get a cashback of 2% when you charge dining, drugstore, and gas station expenses to the card and a cashback of 1% for all other purchases. The best part is that there is no annual credit card fee and no foreign transaction fee as well. If you aren’t a Prime member, get the Amazon Rewards Visa® Card - you get a $50 gift card upon approval and decent rewards.
Discounted Prime membership for EBT holders: If you happen to receive government assistance and have an EBT card, you can get an Amazon Prime membership at just $5.99 per month, rather than paying $99 a year ($12.99 per month). With this membership, you’ll get all the benefits that a regular Prime member would with the exception of Household sharing. But you can only get this reduced price for a total of 48 months, and you will need to requalify every 12 months.
Visit the Treasure Truck: The Treasure Truck is Amazon’s mobile store that offers some really fantastic deals. The only downside is that it isn’t available everywhere - but you can sign up for alerts on the Amazon website to find out when the truck will be in your area and what the deals are. The truck is a lot of fun for adults and children alike.
