Money Saving Mondays: Saving Money when shopping at Amazon!

Continuing series of Money Saving Mondays! I love to save money, post deals, and just in general make my dollar stretch a little further so keep up with me on Mondays for some easy ways to save money!

Today let’s discuss ways to save money when shopping at Amazon!

Okay, I love shopping at Amazon! I admit that I am a sucker for free shipping when you spend $25, so the goal is getting what you want without spending a fortune! Just remember that the item must be marked eligible for Free Super Saver Shipping to qualify for the free shipping offer! Sometimes a “great deal” may fall through with the added shipping costs!

My favorite way to save money at Amazon is to add all your favorite items to your shopping cart then mark to save them for later (you have to be logged in to do this)! Amazon will update you on what prices have gone up or down since the last time you accessed your shopping cart! This is a great way to save money on items that you don’t need right away or items you are thinking about for Birthdays or Christmast gifts!

When shopping for books, group books under $10 in groups of 4, and you will get the lowest cost one free! The best option is to find four like-priced books and purchase as one transaction and then repeat if you are buying multiple sets of 4. For example, if you spend $8.99 per book for four books, you will only be spending $26.97 (instead of $35.99) and you’ll get free shipping! For more information on the 4-for-3 Books offer! This is the best way to purchase children’s books since many fall under the $10 price and Amazon typically discounts the books 10-25% off cover price too! If you’re shopping for books over $25, then they are typically discounted 34%!

You can also group books with the Home & Garden 4-for-3offer! Likely you will do better off if you find four home and garden items since they range in price from $0.75 to $4, 475, although most items are under $500. Of course, if your home and garden items are in the $10 price range than adding books would make sense!

Don’t forget to check out the Amazon Outletfor great savings everyday!

You can also save money shopping on Amazon by checking out my weekly savings on Amazon posts! I try to update the best sales of the week by Sunday night so you don’t have to do all the searching! As a reminder, the prices are current when each post goes up and Amazon’s prices fluctuate based on the interest in a product or products!

Don’t forget that there are always great MP3 Deals, including free downloads and it seems that the songs change on almost a daily basis!
