Amazon.com has become the go-to place to shop online. You can find just about anything there – new or used – and you can usually find great deals just by browsing around. However, if you want to save big when shopping Amazon, you have to know where to look.
If you shop for most everything on Amazon, you must get an Amazon Prime membership. For $79 a year, you’ll get free two-day shipping, tons of free TV shows and movies and free Kindle books from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library. When you sign up, you’ll get a month free and the money you save on shipping alone makes this a great deal!
Amazon Warehouse Deals
Did you know Amazon has warehouse deals? Most people don’t, but you can save lots of money on refurbished, open-box, near-date or slightly damaged products by shopping Amazon Warehouse Deals. Many of these items might even qualify for free Super Saver Shipping.
Free Super Saver Shipping
Many items on Amazon qualify for Free Super Saver Shipping. If you buy $35 in qualifying items (those marked as “eligible for FREE Super Saver Shipping”), they will ship for free.
Deals and Bargains
Amazon also has a Deals and Bargains section on their site. This section changes daily, so check it regularly for some of the biggest savings the site has to offer.
Who doesn’t love outlet shopping? Getting close-out prices on name brand products is so much fun! Amazon has their own outlet store, where you can save anywhere from 25 to 70%!
Daily Digital Deals
Freebies are always a good thing and Amazon offers several freebies every day. The Daily Digital Deals page is full of free and nearly free things such as apps, books, MP3s and much more.

Amazon lets private sellers put their used items up for sale. When you find a new item you like, but aren’t thrilled with the price, check to see if any used ones are available. Simply look for “#used and new for sale” in the product description to see what’s available.
