If you’ve decided to test out the monthly subscription lifestyle with grocery deliveries, household goods shipments or personal care product boxes, Amazon’s Subscribe & Save program is one under-the-radar service that’s definitely worth trying — and it’ll actually save you money.
Instead of constantly grabbing toilet paper or trash bags at your local grocery store, you can set up recurring shipments from Amazon at the cadence of your preference. Say goodbye to the worry of adding everyday staples to shopping lists!
Choose from household goods, baby products, pet supplies, grocery items, beauty essentials and more to schedule for a delivery that works for you. You can select your items to be delivered from every two weeks to six months.
While subscriptions can be costly, Amazon’s service doesn’t include any extra fees and can save you up to 20 percent off each purchase versus other expensive options that can run in the hundreds of dollars per year.
How does Amazon’s Subscribe & Save program work?
As you’re browsing products within each Subscribe & Save category, you’ll notice a percentage below the item, which signifies how much you can save if you choose to sign up for continuous delivery.
After selecting the quantity and schedule that fits your needs for the eligible products, your subscription is set, and shipping is always free.
Plus, if you schedule five or more products on auto-delivery to one address, you can get up to 15 percent off. Additionally, if you’re a Prime member, you can unlock up to 20 percent off.
Unlike other subscriptions that can make it hard to cancel, Amazon allows you to skip deliveries or cancel your items at any time. And, before each delivery arrives, you’ll receive a reminder email that shows the total items, price and any available discounts for the upcoming order.
