What is Amazon Subscribe and Save?

Amazon Subscribe and SaveAmazon Subscribe and Save is quite literally a subscription program that allows you to say you want something once a month or once every six months and then have it automatically shipped to your door. This means that the order is automatically placed each month and shipped to your address unless you cancel, or do not have the funds in your account. You get free shipping on all of your subscriptions and an up to 15% discount off of your total orders. If you have 5 or more subscriptions you get a 15% discount, and if you have 1-4 subscriptions, you get a 5% discount. Some items also offer individual discounts for subscriptions.

What Can You Subscribe To?

While not every item is eligible for Subscribe and Save, there are a number of different items that you can subscribe to. Some of the basics include diapers, shampoo, napkins, toilet paper, paper towels, and many groceries available on Amazon. Basically a great deal of your household essentials that you would have to purchase anyway.

So How Much Can You Save?

Depending on the item, you can save up to 30% on each purchase, which is better than the majority of sales and coupons that you might be able to get otherwise. Because it’s also shipped right to your door for free, you can also keep in mind that it saves you time and gas going to the store, which is also a huge plus.

How Does it Work

If you see something that you want to subscribe to, you can find it on Amazon to see if it is eligible for subscription. If so, you should see a ‘one time purchase’ and ‘subscribe’ button where you would usually see ‘add to cart’ or ‘purchase’. To subscribe, simply ensure that you have a credit or debit card linked to your account, and then choose how often you want your item. Amazon usually recommends a time based on the most common subscription. Click subscribe, verify it, and then wait for your order to show up. Best of all, because many items are slightly cheaper on Amazon anyway, you could save a bit more than 15-30% on your subscription when compared to going to the store to get it.

You can edit, remove, or change the frequency of your subscriptions at any time by going to ‘Account’ and ‘Manage Subscriptions’, and there is no minimum subscription time (you can cancel after one delivery if you want). You will also receive an email before your order ships out, so you will have a chance to cancel it if you do not need it.
