Over the last few years, Amazon has become increasingly popular, and for good reason! The company sells pretty much everything, offers services like music and video, and delivers your orders pretty fast especially if you have Amazon Prime. If you love shopping on Amazon, these tips will help you make the most of your shopping experience.
Get Prime for free: If you’ve never had Prime, you should know that Amazon offers Prime membership to customers for free for a period of 30 days. This means you can sign up for the 30-day trial during the holiday season or whenever you shop the most to get free shipping on your orders. Just make sure to cancel the membership before the trial period ends, so you aren’t charged any money. This is a pretty cool perk, but you could actually get Amazon Prime for free for six whole months with Prime Student. After the six-month period, you’ll only need to pay half-price for the membership.
Gift Amazon Prime to your loved ones: If any of your family members or friends don’t use Prime, you could gift the membership to them, as long as they have an email address. It will cost you $39 for a three-month membership and $119 for a one-year membership. If the person you gift the membership to is already a Prime member, they will be able to exchange the amount you paid for the membership for a gift card from Amazon for the same value.
Check out “Today’s Deals” on Amazon: The best deals on Amazon are found in the “Today’s Deals” section that’s at the top of the Amazon webpage. The section may have time-limited Lightning Deals and a Deal of the Day. While Amazon usually doesn’t give you a lot of notice for such deals, you could check them out on your smartphone while you are on the go if you have the Amazon app.
Subscribe to products: You probably think subscription services are only for things like magazines and video services, but with Amazon’s Subscribe & Save service, you can subscribe to common household items like detergent, pet food, toilet paper, and other essentials. The best part about subscribing for items you use regularly is that you’ll never run out of them and you can even get a discount on the order value (the discount is usually offered if you subscribe for a certain number of months).
