IF you’re ordering from Amazon, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you get a good deal.
We take a look at how to find hidden discounts – and how to check if your business is legitimate.
With the help of money saving experts, we reveal six easy ways to save money when shopping with the online retailer.
Get up to 75% off
Bargain hunters at LatestDeals.co.uk have developed a free tool to help reveal hidden bargains on Amazon.
The amount you will save will vary depending on the item you are looking for.
But they say you could get discounts of up to 70%.
Amazon offers random giveaways to Prime subscribers.
You will need to register for the program through the Your Online Account section and tell Amazon which categories you are most interested in receiving samples from, such as grocery or beauty.
Of course, there’s no guarantee you’ll get a freebie – but let us know how you fare.
The perk also works on Amazon Alexa.
Personal finance blogger Fiona Hawkes, who heads Savvy in Somerset, relies on this to try out products before committing to a big purchase.
She talks about how often they will also save you money later: “Products often come with coupons so you can save money if you decide to buy the product.
“Samples change quite often and previous giveaways have included cans of Coca Cola, toothpaste, energy drinks, crackers and coffee.
“Just say, ‘Alexa, send me a sample. “”
Subscribe and save
Good Business Blogger Mr. Deals Manchester, swear by this trick to save money on the items you order regularly.
He said: “When you subscribe to an article you get money, but often there are specials that mean you get extra discount.
“Subscribe and save [the item you want], then click “get it sooner” to have it shipped normally, then immediately cancel the subscription for savings. ”
But do the math first. It’s worth it if you’ll really save the money buying in bulk – and how much you need.
There’s no point in spending extra money if you don’t need it.
Do your research
MoneySavingExpertOli Townsend, associate editor of offers and features at, also recommends comparing Amazon’s prices with those of other online retailers.
He said, “You can use sites like Google Shopping, PriceSpy, and Price Runner to do a quick price comparison.
“It also has thousands of daily deals and while there are some great deals to be had, not all will be a winner, so use the free online price tracker. CamelCamelCamel to see an item’s Amazon price history to see if you’re really getting a good deal.
For example, the site may claim that you save £ 30, but when you check the Historian’s price, it may have cost £ 50 less two weeks earlier.
Get 40% off with warehouse deals
It’s a good idea to check out Amazon’s warehouse deals – this is where you can buy used goods and open boxes at a reasonable price.
Earlier this week we revealed how you can get up to 40% off.
Just be aware that the packaging may not meet the usual Amazon standard.
It is the same for Amazon Outlet, where buyers can purchase overstock or defective products for a discount.
British Kid Coupon Jordon Cox said: “Quite often you may see things with slight flaws like a damaged or slightly damaged box – but that doesn’t affect the usability of the items.
“The rest of it is because they ordered way too much for Christmas or the holidays and didn’t sell it, so they’re selling it for a lower price.
“I even saw £ 100 on a stroller, which had already been used once and sent back to Amazon.
“The box had been opened, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with the contents inside.”
Divide the cost
It is in fact possible to have two adults on the same Amazon Prime account.
Amazon Household means Prime users can link their account to that of another adult.
You will both have access to Prime Delivery, Prime Video, and Prime Music.
Membership typically costs around £ 7.99 per month – with the two of you splitting the price, it’s less than £ 4 each.
The only thing to remember is that your credit and debit card details are shared, so choose someone you trust.
Get it delivered for free
No one likes paying that extra £ 3-5 for delivery, added at the end of your online order – so do your best to avoid it.
MoneyJames Andrew, personal finance editor, said: “The first thing to check is the free delivery deadline.
“If you pay for delivery as is, adding a little extra to get you across the line could mean you pay less overall and get more as a result. ”
