Amazon is the most popular websites for online shopping. The benefits are clear - it’s faster and easier to shop at a website than a physical store, and Amazon’s prices are often lower than Walmart and Target. Amazon offers even more benefits to using their website. Here are a few:

Amazon Prime

The main draw of Amazon Prime is free two-day shipping. Prime also gives you access to free music, movies, ebooks, and more entertainment options for the whole family. If you’re interested, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial, and you can cancel anytime.

Amazon Prime is $99/year or $10.99/month. You can find a complete list of benefits here.   

Subscribe and Save

This option lets you save money on the things you buy over and over. The standard discount is five percent, but if you sign up for five or more items, you can get a 15 percent discount. The shipments are scheduled regularly over a period of one to six months.

If you want the discount on a one-time purchase, you can cancel the subscription right after you make the purchase. Subscribe and Save items arrive on the same day every month, which you are able to choose. You can view eligible items here.


Amazon has its own coupon page, and it’s more convenient than using traditional coupons. Simply click “Clip Coupon,” add the item to your cart, and it will automatically apply to your purchase.

Amazon Family + Mom

These two programs are free for Prime Members, and can be a great help to parents. They include a 20 percent Subscribe and Save discount on diapers. You can also receive discounts on Amazon’s baby registry and receive exclusive coupons.

Amazon Warehouse

Amazon Warehouse is Amazon’s site for open box goods. If you don’t mind buying refurbished items, you can find great deals.

Price Trackers

Prices on Amazon are always changing, but camelcamelcamel lets you view the current price, price history, and the average price of most items on Amazon. You can even receive email updates when the price changes for specific items, giving you peace of mind before you make any purchase.
