Did you know that there Amazon isn’t just selling its own products?
There are actually 1.6 million active sellers using Amazon’s platform to sell their products. With so many choices, it can be hard to find the best deal available.
We all know that shopping online frequently offers the best prices available and in particular, you can find some of the best deals on Amazon. However, if you want to drive the prices down even further and improve your savings, then this is the guide for you.
Let’s take a look at how you can save even more money when shopping on Amazon.
Finding the Best Deals on Amazon
With many of the best deals online these days, smart shoppers will take their time when making a purchase in order to maximize their savings.
There are dozens of ways to find discounts and plenty of deals readily available. So, how do you make sure that you get something at the best price possible?
When searching for an item at the best price, we always recommend shopping around and comparing prices.
Sometimes the best price is simply available at a different retailer so it’s worth looking at, especially with so many retailers having an online presence where you can compare prices quickly from the comfort of your own home.
Comparing prices will only take you so far; that’s why we created this guide with plenty more suggestions for how you can find the best savings.
Amazon Prime Day
Let’s get the obvious out of the way first.
Amazon Prime Day is a massive event that rivals Black Friday and other massive sales. Amazon often offers its lowest possible prices on a large range of products during Prime Day and all you have to do to reap the rewards, is have a Prime account.
Over 150 million people already have a Prime subscription globally and it’s easy to see why. In addition to being able to participate in exclusive sales like this, Prime is the gift that keeps on giving!
As part of your membership, Prime offers incredible services such as fast and free shipping, Prime videos streaming service, and an ever-expanding range of perks that you are unlikely to make full use of such as benefits for Twitch and early access to certain deals.
Prime Day this year will take place on June 21st and 22nd. As usual, there will be massive discounts on Amazon devices such as the Kindle, Fire TV Stick, Tablets, and home assistants as well as huge savings to be had elsewhere.
If you are a smart online shopper, you won’t want to miss it. Plus, even if you don’t have Prime yet, Amazon offers a free month trial which will give you the access you need this month. Although you should be warned, you may never want to cancel the subscription.
Amazon Assistant Plug-In
Whatever browser you use, Amazon has an easy and free shopping assistant that can be downloaded and used across the web.
This assistant will make price comparison a snap as it locates similar or matching items from the websites you visit and the Amazon price.
This little tool is so simple and great for quickly finding the products you want without having to search for yourself.
Subscribe and Save
The subscription-based items aren’t available on every product but for things like make-up, pet food, and other consumables, they are extremely helpful.
Not just because they make your reordering automatic either. Subscription-based products are offered with a discount on Amazon depending on how long and how frequently you set the subscription for.
For budget shoppers, this can be the perfect way to save on things that you know you will need on a regular basis.
Use Amazon Coupons
Coupons for a website like Amazon can be difficult to find compared to traditional stores. Additionally, there are sites that make looking for the best Amazon coupon a breeze.
Coupons are available for both general purchases and in specific product categories so make sure to look through what is currently available to find the best deals for you.
Buy Used or Check Other Sellers
Remember those 1.6 million active sellers on Amazon we mentioned? Well, this is where they shine.
When you are looking at any listing on Amazon, there is frequently an option to view used or other sellers for the same product. The price with various sellers varies but, you can often find the exact item you are looking for at a lower price.
Sure, this often won’t qualify for the same-day or next-day options available on some products but the savings can be significant and really offset the inconvenience.
Check out Amazon Deals
Daily Deals, Spotlight Deals, Lightning Deals, and the Warehouse and Outlet Deals. Amazon has no shortage of special limited-time offers.
The items can be random but they change often and you can definitely find things you will need such as electronic toothbrushes, garden hoses, and everything else in between.
Keep an eye on the limited deals to make sure you don’t miss out when the thing you want/need the most receives a massive price reduction.
Search by Discount
Did you know that you can actually search for specific discounts on Amazon?
If you have a specific item in mind and you put it in the search bar, sometimes you will be buried in hundreds of listings where the best savings may be impossible to see.
Simply add “&pct-off=50-” to the end of the web address after you’ve searched the product to view items discounted from 50%.
Even better, you can put a specific range on the discounts you are looking for like this “&pct-off=25-75” to see everything from 25% off to 75% off.
You will still see listings that are full price or not within that range, but these will help to prioritize the items with a discount and help you find these offers much quicker.
Start Saving Now
The ways to save and find the best deals on Amazon are almost endless. So try as many of these approaches as possible because you never know what you might find at massively reduced prices.
