31 Ways to Save in 2011: Save using Amazon’s Subscribe & Save program!


Have you checked out Amazon’s Subscribe & Save program yet? If you don’t feel like paying for a membership to BJs, Costco, or Sam’s, you don’t have time to play the “drug store game” or you’re looking for affordable prices on household goods, you should definitely check out subscribe & save! Even though I still shop at CVS and Walgreens, I have found some deals on items such as batteries, toilet paper, and laundry detergent over the past few months using Subscribe & Save that were better than what I could get using coupons and ECBs or RRs.

Yesterday I talked about ways that you can earn Amazon gift cards in this post here.  It’s so awesome to be able to get items that you need for FREE!  Plus, with Subscribe & Save, you can get anywhere from 15-30% off!

Here’s how it works:

1.  Select an eligible item from participating products here.

2.  Choose a quantity and a delivery schedule from the box on the right hand side of your screen (you change this information or cancel at any time by clicking on “Your Account” and then “Manage Subscribe & save”)

3.  Enter payment information and click on “Sign me up”

NOTE:  I always choose six months as my delivery schedule and then I usually go in and cancel after I receive my shipment so that I can watch for deals the next time I need the item.

TIP:  Always check out the coupon center here to see if there are coupons you can “clip” to apply discounts at check-out.  I have noticed that Amazon has begun including the links to the coupons in the product listings as well, so make sure you scroll down in the listing to see if any coupons are available (they are usually listed under the pricing information).  These coupons are one time use.

Here are some products that are worth checking out:

Charmin Ultra Strong, Mega Rolls, 352 2-ply sheets per roll – $19.36 with the subscribe & save discount and clipless couponOne Mega Roll is the equivalent of four traditional rolls, so it’s like you’re getting 72 traditional rolls. This breaks down to $1.07 per mega roll ($.27 per traditional roll) or $.03 per sheet, which is a pretty good deal, especially for 2 ply toilet paper!  My “stock up” price for the “good stuff” 2-ply is $.30 per roll.

Gillette Fusion Proglide Manual Cartridge, 8 ct – $19.80 with the subscribe & save discountThese are $26.99-$29.99 at most retail stores and they rarely have coupons or deals for them!

Philips Sonicare ProResults Brush Heads – $16.46 with the Subscribe & Save discountthese are $29.99 on average at most retail stores and there are rarely coupons or deals for them!

Prevacid 24 Hr Capsules – 42 ct – $10.19 with the Subscribe & Save discountThese are $24.99-$29.99 on average at most retail stores and even with coupons, they are more expensive than Amazon!

Zyrtec Allergy, 24 Hour 10 mg tablets (45 count) – $14.42 with the Subscribe & Save discountThese retail between $26.99-$29.99, and even with coupons and/or ECB/RR deals, you can’t beat this price! (Make sure you click on the “Buy Directly From Amazon” link)

One of my FAVORITE Subscribe & Save deals is the diaper deals and the Amazon Mom program

If you haven’t joined Amazon Mom yet, it’s definitely worth it.  Your subscription is completely free and in addition to getting great savings on diapers, you also get other great coupons via e-mail.  They are currently offering 30% off select diapers and wipes when you choose the subscribe & save optionYou can sign up for Amazon Mom or learn more about the program by clicking hereAmazon Mom will also give you a free three month subscription to Amazon Prime, which entitles you to free two day shipping, no minimum purchase required.  You can cancel your subscribe & save at ANY time (make sure you receive your order first!)

You can use the 20% January’s American Baby Magazine  in addition to the 30% Amazon Mom discount!  You can only use one coupon per order and the 20% will only come off one item.  They usually have these magazines for free at Babies’ R Us!

Here are some examples of the hot diaper deals you can get right now by combining these two promotions (the full listing of participating subscribe & save diapers is here):
