3 Tricks to Save Money on Amazon.com

Try these online shopping hacks to put cash back into your pocket.

Shoppers love Amazon for the savings. The online retailer is famous for undercutting the competition. But smart shoppers know there are tricks that can net even greater savings. Here are three.

Amazon shopping trick #1

If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you’re entitled to free two-day shipping. But if you’re not in a hurry, select “No-Rush Shipping” instead. Your order will arrive within five days. In exchange, you’ll earn a credit for a future purchase. (Credits vary and might apply to an entire order or to a specific item such as a video rental or music download.)

Amazon shopping trick #2

Planning to invest in a new big-screen TV? Buy it directly from Amazon and the price will be guaranteed for 30 days. If you see the same set for less, the difference will be refunded to you. (Price matching doesn’t apply to TVs sold on Amazon by third-party vendors.)

Amazon shopping trick #3

When you think Amazon, you probably don’t think coupons. But they’re there – if you know where to look. Click the “Today’s Deals” tab on the website to find hundreds of coupons searchable by product category and brand. No clipping required.
