Amazon is a massive company that sells a wide range of products. As well as being one of the largest eCommerce stores in the world, they also offer some of the best deals around. If you’re looking for a cheap and useful product, Amazon is usually the first place to go. Moreover, they also offer a number of interesting features, such as next day delivery and free returns.
It is important to note that not everything that is sold on Amazon is actually owned or stocked by Amazon. The company grew very fast because it allows normal, third-party sellers to come into their marketplace and have a slice of the company’s success. As a result, there are a ton of products in a range of categories that are ridiculously cheap. You can also buy new and used items, helping you save even further on the dollar.
However, although there is a lot of opportunity when it comes to Amazon and Super Saver deals, a lot of people don’t know how to go about searching for them. They simply go onto Amazon and pick the first product they see that has a considerable number of positive reviews. Sure, you will get a good product but you may have got it way cheaper if you knew how to look.
This site is dedicated to helping you find the best deals and steals on Amazon. To get you started, we have created this ultimate guide that will cover all the basics to finding excellent deals on Amazon, step by step.
Conduct Multiple Searches
As I have just mentioned above, not everything is sold by Amazon on their website. Some of the items are sold from third-part sellers. It is for this reason that Amazon can offer so many products. There are millions of third-party sellers and anyone can join. As a result of this, you often get sellers going up against Amazon’s products, which creates a highly competitive pricing environment.
With this in mind, it is important that you perform multiple searches before you choose your product. It may be cheaper to get your product straight from the manufacturer, as opposed to Amazon. Or by searching for an alternative name. There are a number of filters supplied by Amazon that allow you to find amazing deals that they might not immediately put up front of your initial search results. For example, if your search terms are fairly broad, you’ll have a more difficult time finding the best of Amazon’s deals.
It would be no surprise to find that the manufacture is selling the exact same product for a hell of a lot cheaper than Amazon. So, always to filter the research multiple times and perform multiple search variants. For example, “extra large dog crates” can become “xl dog crates” or “dog crates for xl dogs”. You can also search using color or by reviews. And don’t always search for items that have free shipping. Sometimes, it is just a marketing tactic and other sellers have lower prices even with shipping costs added.
Are You Buying From Amazon or its Market Place?
This one has already been mentioned and covered above but it is such an important thing to consider. We have already mentioned that there are a ton of third-party sellers on Amazon but how exactly do you spot them? Well, it is actually very simple. When you click on the product, you will be able to see who is selling the product (the true seller) and here it will display where the product is coming from.
Be aware that not all products that are available for Prime are Amazon’s. Thanks to Amazon’s FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon) program, individuals can use their shipping and warehouses for quick delivery, so although you are guaranteed fast and free shipping as a Prime member, it does not mean the product is part of Amazon’s selective sourcing. Something to consider when factoring in the Prime symbol on some products.
You also need to be aware that when you are buying through third-party sellers, you may not always be able to return the products if they are broken upon delivery. You have to understand that if they are fulfilling the orders themselves they may charge you for returning the faulty product, so always check the seller’s terms and conditions page before you buy. As these products are not quality checked by Amazon, relying on Amazon community members (buyers) to leave positive or negative feedback based on their dealings with Sellers, products from third-party sellers are more likely to be a faulty product.
Consider the Shipping
Buyers should also watch out in the Market Place because although it can be listed as being cheaper, some of the products do not include free shipping or if they do, the shipping and processing times may vary enormously. This can result in you paying an unexpected bill just before you finish the purchase or receiving the product sometimes weeks later than an Amazon product. Shipping is a very important consideration and if not careful, can be very expensive.
I have just mentioned above that you need to be careful with third-party sellers and their shipping policies. If you are not a Prime member, you’re going to have to pay for shipping if you want to get the item the next day (depending on the day and time). If you’re truly looking for Amazon deals, you need (it pays) to be patient. In some cases, shipping can cost upward of a few dollars, and so sometimes waiting a few extra days will be worth it to maximize savings.
Obviously, Prime members get free 2 day delivery but this is not on every product. Some products won’t be eligible for Prime bonuses. So, once again, always read into the products you’re thinking about buying if you’re looking for the best deals on Amazon.
Time Your Purchases Right
As we all know, the prices on Amazon change all the time and it can be difficult to keep track. As you will see later in the article, there is a tool that you can use to automatically monitor price, but for now we will stick to the manual basics.
One such basic is watching out for holiday or seasonal sales. Sometimes throughout the year, the price listings will increase – typically around the summer or a product’s off-season (think snowblowers in summer). However, when winter rolls along with Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Christmas and Boxing Day, prices will drop and there will be deals everywhere.
The reason Amazon and other retailers do this is to make sure they have an even profit throughout the year. They don’t mind giving deals around the holidays as they know they’ll get their money back in volume.
Use Tools Available to You
Now that we have covered the basics when it comes to searching for an awesome deal on Amazon, it is time to look at the tools that can help you. There are a ton of robots that will crawl Amazon’s database of products and will produce the best ones for you to choose from. Some are more useful than others. For example, there is one tool which will pull up products that will exactly add up to $25 – so you can get free shipping.
These tools are incredibly useful if you’re looking for the best deals possible. This is the extreme way of looking for deals though and most people won’t have the patience to spend hours browsing through them. For the persistent ones among you, you will find the following tools to be necessary in your hunt for an excellent deal or steal.
The Amazon Discount Tool (moneysavingexpert.com)
There is a site called Money Saving Expert and it is entirely focused on saving you money during all phases and areas of life. Whether it be your taxes, your bills and even products on Amazon. They have custom built tool available that will find a ton of products in a specific category for an amazing price.
The tool was built and coded by the site and is an excellent way to find random deals in specific categories. They have also listed a number of discounts they’ve already found using the tool and offer assistance when it comes to actually using it. If you’re after a specific product, this product is not that useful but if you’re just shopping around and have a particular area in mind, this tool can be very useful. The site is rather slow at times, but again, if you have the time check it out.
In their instructions, they also provide useful advice that should be emphasized. When you funnel through the results do not just choose the first deal you see. Just because the product is listed as having a huge discount, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it is a special deal or bargain. Some third party sellers hike their original price to ridiculous levels, so that they show up on these types of tools at 70%+ off. Do your research and use the tool as a guide.
The Super Saver Delivery Tool (supersaverdeliverytool.com)
If you’re shopping on Amazon for something small and inexpensive, we advise that you check the shipping price beforehand. If the products are directly from Amazon (not the Marketplace) you will need to meet a minimum threshold in order to get free delivery. This can be a pain if you are just shopping around and don’t want to get anything too expensive. In fact, Amazon and other merchants set a minimum price for their free shipping offers to encourage larger orders that often go well over the threshold. If you want to hold on to your hard earned cash, and only want to buy what you need, there is an app that might be able to help you.
The Super Saver delivery Tool is an excellent option if you want to save money on shipping and also get some extra necessary things at the same time. What the tool does is crawl the Amazon product database finding any add-on item to push your basket total over the free shipping threshold. It will give you a selection to choose from, so you can add the most relevant things you need. It is a great way to not pay for shipping, hit the threshold without spending too much, and not have to buy things you do not need.
Keep in mind that to qualify for Amazon’s free shipping threshold, these products need to be sold by Amazon, and not a third-party seller.
CamelCamelCamel is a well-known platform when it comes to selling on Amazon. The platform is well-known for its ability to track sales on specific Amazon products but you can also use it to find incredible Amazon deals. This tool allows users to track the price changes of chosen products. This is one of the primary tools you should use when you’re hunting deals on Amazon because it will clarify a number things.
You will be able to check whether or not that the product’s discount is actually a legit thing and one that will save you money. As we have mentioned above, just because the item is listed with a discount doesn’t mean that it’s necessarily a bargain. You should also place the item ASIN number into CamelCamelCamel to see whether there have been any significant price changes in the recent months. If there isn’t, the seller has probably placed the product on Amazon with a permanent discount to lure people in to purchase.
This, again, can be tedious work to do but if you want to be sure you’re getting a quality Amazon deal, this is a very important procedure to undertake. Although Amazon does monitor the Marketplace well, some sellers and their crafty ways can slip through their net.
CamelCamelCamel also has another really cool feature that you definitely should consider using. As it can track the changes in prices on Amazon, you can get price alerts when the product you’re looking at goes down in price. The alerts can be sent directly to your email so no matter where you are you can quickly jump on Amazon and pick up the item for an awesome deal. Tip: you should set the price at which it will alert you, otherwise you will be getting alerts every hour!
Curiua – When Searching the EU Market Place
This next tip is for the individuals who live in Europe. So if you’re based in the US, you can move onto the next section. So, let’s get to the point. If you live in the UK, sometimes the products you’ll be looking at will be cheaper in another EU country. This is because Amazon allows sellers in the EU to sell all over the continent and doesn’t limit them to their one country. This means that, sometimes, products will be cheaper in other countries.
However, most of us do not have the time to go to every Amazon store in each and every EU country – it takes far too much time. What we can do though, is use a tool like Curiua. This tool allows you to take products that you have found in the UK and compare them with the same products across the EU. With a weakened pound, some of the products will be more expensive but, in some cases, you can find a killer deal, especially on electrical goods.
Amazon’s Deal Webpages
So far, we have not explored the different ways you can manually search for the best deals on Amazon. Amazon is one of the online retailers that was built in order to supply the consumer with great deals and offers. Therefore, it would seem unjust that they didn’t have a few pages and tabs exclusively dedicated towards their latest discounts. Amazon has a bunch of tabs that they use to make quick sales. They have different items on offer every day while having special promotions on days like Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
There are a few webpages that are worth looking into if you’re after a quick deal when you’re shopping around. We will list a few common ones that you can visit and check out with a few simple clicks.
Deal of the Day
The “deal of the day”* can feature one product and sometimes more depending on the season. The offer will only last for that day and is usually promoted because of a scarcity of stock. When there is more than one deal of the day, this usually happens during the holiday season. This is because events like Christmas are huge for Amazon. Because of this, they can afford to have multiple deals on at one time. In most cases, the offer will be around 40% off.
Lightning deals* are when Amazon offer a deal for a product and put it on a timer. This is the same as you would find with the majority of deals online and the purpose of it is to make you buy there and then. However, don’t let the timer put you off. You still need to research these deals to check if they’re a legitimate bargain. You will have plenty of time to go about and do the research, so try to resist the impulse buy.
Quick Picks are a unique type of deal that will appear based on your previous buying history and what you have been looking at in the past. The idea behind this is that you will go ahead and make the purchase once you have seen there is a deal being offered. Although it is important to do your research, the deals are usually quite good.
However, you have to choose carefully because you’re only allowed one quick pick a day. Once you have added the quick pick to your cart, the rest will suddenly expire, so make sure you don’t click by accident otherwise you might get a product you don’t want.
Savings & Sales
These are deals* that can be found on nearly every webpage in Amazon. They include the latest on-going deal. They are very easy to navigate and you check all the features of them in just a few clicks. You can check the shipping costs, the expiry date and the price that you are being offered. They aren’t always the best deals but if it happens to be something you need, go for it.
Other Webpages to Check Out
Of course, there are going to be more pages that offer you great deals on Amazon. Here are a few other pages that we recommend you check out if you’re still not satisfied with the options we’ve given above. They are actually quite uncommon and so you may not have heard of some of these.
There is actually a coupons tabs that allows you to check coupons and use them at the checkout. This is something with which not everyone in our community has been aware! There are a select number of coupons you can use to get a little bit of money off your final purchase. The difference is not always that great but it does save you a little bit of money and they can often be combined with current promotions that are ongoing. Some coupons are better than others and it is worth keeping an eye on. Jungle Deals and Steals highlights 10 near-expiring coupons every day.
Another option is the promo coupon code, which will be detailed below.
Amazon Outlet* is something is not well-known by the average online shopper. It is now present on the home page as a clickable option (in the page footer at the bottom), but before that it was relatively secret. The Outlet is a great place to find some steep discount on a range of products. In most cases, the products you’ll find will be in the electrical and musical categories but you can search to see if there is anything else that catches your attention.
What is especially good about the Outlet is that you can search for items that you want. This saves you time as you don’t have to flick through deals that don’t interest you. The reason that the prices are so cheap here is because Amazon is trying to get rid of them. For most of the time, they have overstocked and will offer a deal to get them sold. The outlet can now be found in the standard deal tabs on the home page of Amazon.
Warehouse deals* are a little different than other deals. This is because the items here are second-hand or have been broken in the warehouse or shipping process. Amazon will make sure that these items are fixed and tested as soon as possible and will then sell them for cheaper prices. Although they are repaired professionally, Amazon does not give you a guarantee.
You will have to be careful with these products because, although they have fantastic deals, there is a chance that they may not work when you receive them. Make sure to check the condition and the seller’s warranty before you order a product.
This one is self-explanatory. Digital deals* is a place where you can find everything and anything related to virtual products. By this, we mean apps, books and music. It will give you all the latest deals and you can go through and choose any that appeal to you. However, bear in mind that Amazon has a separate section when it comes to eBooks call the Kindle Daily Deal*. These are also shared each day by Jungle Deals and Steals and conveniently delivered to your inbox, to social media channels and to our homepage.
Saving Money with Prime
To put things into perspective, everyone can use the techniques listed above to get awesome deals on Amazon. The more creative and crafty you are the larger the discounts you’ll find. However, there is a whole other portion of the Amazon cake not yet mentioned. That, my friends, is Prime.
Amazon Prime is Amazon’s special subscription service that gives members a number of benefits. You are required to pay a monthly fee, which can vary depending on who you are (more on this later), and with this you can get a series of useful bonuses, including free two-day (sometimes next-day) delivery. This can save you a lot of money and with some memberships you get all the Amazon extras, like video, reading and music subscriptions.
However, I have stated above, there is a monthly fee to this and unless you are using Amazon frequently, this might not be the best use of your money. Currently, Amazon charges Prime members $99 a year which isn’t too bad but may put off a few individuals. Monthly payment options make this an easier pill to swallow. Below we will go through some of the benefits of Prime and will also offer you a way to try it for free and (possibly) get it cheaper.
Use the Free Trial (And Pay Even Less)
So, we are going to start off by stating that Prime does have a free trial*. You can get the 30-day free trial and this is available to anyone. It will allow you to get your feet wet with the program, letting you know whether it is worth your time. In addition, if you just want it to get a product quickly, you can sign up for the trial and then quit once you’ve ordered the product. You are free to cancel at any time, which is a nice, reassuring feature.
There are ways that you can get Prime cheaper and Amazon recently began to slash the price for certain individuals. As you will see later, if you’re in a low-income family or are a student, you may be able to get Prime for a drastically reduced price. However, if you do not fall under these categories and you do not intend to stick with the Prime membership, remember to cancel the subscription before the month ends otherwise you’ll have $99 taken from your account. Ouch.
Try Before You Buy
This feature is available to Prime members only and allows them to try products before purchasing. This is only available with Amazon Fashion which is a newer area that Amazon is diving into. Prime members are now allowed to order multiple clothes to try on before making a purchase. Anything they don’t like they can send back and they are only charged for the things they keep. There is free shipping both ways and it is called the Amazon Wardrobe Service.
Use the Rewards Card
Did you know that you can get an Amazon credit card?* This is a unique feature that is only available to people who have a Prime membership and it allows you to get cashback on all purchases made on Amazon. Even better is the fact you get a $50 (and higher) gift card just through registering the card to spend however you want! At this point in time you get 5% off on all purchases and you get points for every purchase which adds up. You can redeem these points for more gift cards. Just remember to pay all the card bills before the month closes otherwise you’ll be subject to interest.
Other Prime Programs
As we have briefly mentioned above, some individuals get Prime a lot cheaper because of their societal status. These groups include Moms and Students. Both these groups get considerable benefits on their Prime memberships and this can save you hundreds on various products. Here are some of the benefits to having these special accounts.
Amazon Student* is one of the better accounts to get. If you are a student in the US, you get Prime for just $49 a year or $6.39 per month and this will last for 4-years after (even if you have finished college). In addition, students get the discounted price and a 6-month free trial to experiment with the account. As well as getting free shipping, student also get access to the library of eBooks, Amazon Music and a whole lot more. The only thing you don’t get as a student is instant video.
To get access to the student account you need to meet a strict set of criteria. You first need to have an .edu email address (only given to full-time students) and you can only sign up to the free trial once. Once you have used it, you can’t use it again. Apart from that, the student Prime is a must-have for college kids!
Amazon Family (formerly Mom)
What was once Amazon Mom is now Amazon Family*. With this account you will get 3-months for the free trial and you will get discounts on baby products. Once the trial ends you will still have to pay the $99 yearly. However, when the trial period ends you are still able to get 20% of baby products if you use subscribe and save.
Amazon Promo Codes
One of the best ways to save money in any store in the world is through coupon, or promo codes. You can get coupon for just about anything. In fact, you can still open the newspaper and cut out deals for local shops. Although that is a little old school you may be surprised by the amount of people who still do it. However, with the rise of the online world, coupons have become wider spread and you can now get them for Amazon.
There are two types of coupons on Amazon. Ones that can be clipped on a product page and codes that can be entered at checkout. Coupon codes available for Amazon are known as Amazon Promo Codes and they are offered all over the place. Amazon is a billion dollar business and is used worldwide. Therefore, it is no surprise that they’re offered everywhere. In this article, we are going to explore Amazon Promo Codes and will give you more information about what they do and where you can get them.
What are Amazon Promo Codes?
Amazon Promo codes are just like any other promo codes you’ll find on the web. They allow you to get special deals on certain items found on the Amazon database. In most cases, there will only be a select few of them and they will only apply to specific products. Unfortunately, Amazon is too big to give you site-wide promotional codes so you’ll have to find ones that match up with your shopping interests.
They can be found in a range of places and thankfully, you normally don’t have to go far in order to find them. They can be found all over third-party sites and can also be found directly on Amazon (as you will see later).
Amazon Promo codes can get you a decent savings off of your final purchase price and if used correctly, you can save a significant amount of money. A note about multiple promo codes, if you have a lot of products in your basket and multiple promotion codes, it is often best to checkout your things separately so you can save even more money.
Amazon promo codes are one of the best ways to save a little extra when you’re shopping on Amazon and we are going to show you how to use Amazon codes and the best places to find them if you’re looking to save a few dollars.
Why Should You Use Them?
This has already been mentioned a lot in the previous points but to make things clearer for the skim reader among you, we will go into more detail in this paragraph.
There are a ton of reasons why you should use Amazon Promo codes. The obvious main one being that you will save money when you go to the checkout. Amazon promo codes are one of the best ways to save money when it comes to Amazon but it is important to realize they aren’t the only way to get a few dollars off your final order.
As well as promo codes, you also have lightning deals and warehouse deals, which can save you even more when it comes to specific items. However, if you cannot find an items you like in these sections, Amazon promo codes can be the next best option.
The savings from Amazon Promo codes can vary and some may be fairly minimal when compared to other limited time offers on Amazon. Still, they can be a great way to save on regular, everyday items. In most cases, they will only apply to specific products and won’t get you a decent percentage off your entire cart but, even with this, you will still save a few dollars.
Amazon Promo codes are fairly easy to find if you know where to look. Despite them being in existence, many people have no idea about them or where to find them. There are a ton of sites listed below that will have promo codes you can use right now. They can also be found on Amazon but you will have to do some digging.
Where Can You Find Them?
There are plenty of places you can find Amazon promo codes. You just have to do a bit of digging. Amazon isn’t very open about their promo codes they give away and they can be quite hard to hunt down on their site. That is why it might be easier to go ahead and search using some third-party sites that offer promo codes on behalf of other sites. These sites usually offer new coupon codes every day but you have to be careful when you’re searching.
Be careful with your giving your information as some sites may have strings attached such as forced email signups or social media ‘like’ requirements before sharing the promo code. In these cases you may want to move on to more reputable sites.
Everybody has heard about Groupon. It is one of the largest sites if you want to find some great deals and coupons for stores around the world. They have been one of the master sites when it comes to exclusive deals and they also have a section that gives you access to Amazon coupon codes.
To find their Amazon promo codes you have to go to their department store section and find Amazon. From there, you can find a ton of Amazon coupons that you can use when you check out at the site. One of the most popular promos that we see is the free shipping option. These promo codes will let you have free shipping on your order even if you haven’t met the minimum $25 requirements. However, you have to be careful with these vouchers as some of them don’t actually give you anything special. For example, we found one voucher that let you have free delivery if you spent more than $25… which is actually no different.
You also have to be careful as a lot of the coupons are just redirects to a specific sales section on Amazon. So make sure you do some reading before you go ahead with your purchase. At this current point in time, Groupon is currently offering a discount promo code which gets you a small percentage off for the January sales. So it can be worth visiting the site when season-specific sales are live.
Voucher Cloud is another big brand in the name of coupons and vouchers. It is not uncommon to find a few Amazon codes on the platform either. As with Groupon, a lot of the offers on Voucher Cloud link to existing sales and offers that you can find on Amazon yourself. However, every now and again, you’ll find a great deal that will save you a lot of money. On one promo code, you can save 60% on selected fitness goods. So you if you have a good search on the site, you could very well pick up a bargain.
This is another popular coupon and voucher site that you can be used to find some awesome Amazon promo codes. They have a dedicated section that will allow you to filter the results and find an absolute ton of potential resuts. This site also includes the products that Amazon is showing on their own pages so it allows you to find all the deals in one convenient place.
A lot of the deals on this site are also very impressive. Just from a quick scroll, the products that are being shown are being discounted for as much as 40% and above, which will save you a lot of money in the long run. They also allow you to get access to the special deals that Amazon offers on their other services, such as Prime and free delivery.
Jungle Deals and Steals
Jungle Deals and Steals maintains an Amazon Promo Code page that regularly updates current promo codes that are active. When this list changes, it will also be made available via its email subscribers. These promo codes are separate from the coupon listings discussed in the previous Coupon section.
How Do You Apply These Codes?
There are a few ways you can apply the Amazon promo codes that you get from Amazon or other third-party websites. The first way is to go into the Amazon coupon section and clip some of the coupons on offer. This is easy to do and Amazon explains the process very well on the coupon page. You just click the “clip” button under the offer and you will save the coupon to your account. It will then be applied at the checkout if you have the item in your basket/cart.
If you are using a third-party site, unless the coupon directs you straight to the Amazon webpage, you will get a generated code to use. This code is something that will be applied at the end of the checkout process. There will be a little box that you can enter the information into. You will then click “redeem” and the discount will be added to whatever product you have in your cart.
Of course, if you don’t have any of the discounted items in your cart, no discounts will be applied. If you saved the promo code to your account you will be able to use it at another date. However, you will have to check the expiry date as many of these codes will go off after a few days of being live.
Final Words on Promo Codes
If you want to save money on Amazon promo codes and coupons are one of the best ways to go. They can be added and saved for a later date making them a great way to save on specific items.
