I may possibly be addicted to Amazon. I shop on there daily and I talk about it often throughout my site. So, I figured I would make this page for anything relating to Amazon. I actually have more to add here, so please check for updates.
A Prime subscription offers fast and free shipping. It also includes other perks as well like music, photo storage, and their video service. You can add members of your household to your account to share some of these benefits.
If you’re a student or recipient of Medicaid or EBT, you may be eligible to get it at a reduced rate. See their site for more details.
If you want to skip paying for Prime, keep your orders over $25 and you will get free shipping.
Discounts for Amazon can be found on their site, as well as through third parties.
- Clip Amazon Coupons
Amazon offers coupons on a lot of items. They can be found right under the price if there is one available. These can also be used along with discount codes.
- Enter Amazon Coupon Codes
These codes are entered at checkout and can discount up to 100% off. There are several Amazon Affiliates that share them in Facebook groups, on Telegram, etc. There may thousands of other people also viewing the codes, so you have to be really quick when checking out. There’s also a few sites that offer these codes as well. I have a few listed on the Coupon Codes page.
- Shop Amazon Treasure Truck
Amazon has a program called Treasure Truck. When you sign up, they will send you a daily text offering a new item at a discounted rate. You can click the link to see if it’s still available, then have it shipped. For more information, see their site and my blog post.
- Check Out Amazon Woot! Deals
Amazon has a daily deals site called Woot! They have a few items that are discounted until they run out.
There are third party apps and sites that offer cash back when you shop through them. However, Amazon is rarely one of the stores listed. If it is, it’s only cash back for purchasing Amazon devices or services.
*** The following are other ways that you can get cash back for shopping on Amazon. More information about cash back in general is on the Cash Back page.
- Late Delivery Credit With Paribus
Amazon has a policy that if a package is late, you may be able to get a courtesy credit. Not every package is eligible. I have found the best way to tell is to have Paribus (by Capital One) linked to my Amazon profile. It’s a free service that will scan your deliveries, notify you, and then help to get a credit. You can even do this if you have Prime. I’ve tried others, but they were not at all reliable. I was requesting credits on things that didn’t fall into their guidelines.
It’s a very simple process. Paribus will send an email when they have detected a late delivery that you may be eligible for compensation from Amazon. When you click the link in the email, it takes you to their site. There will be a pop up with the steps, along with the order number, and a pre-written message for you to use in chat. It takes less than a minute to do this.
The credit does not go on your Amazon gift card balance. It will show up in your cart when you place a future eligible order. You’ll see it in the payment section with a checkbox for you to choose to use it or not.
- Cash Back Cards
Always try to use any payment cards that will give you cash back.
- Submit Receipts
You can get cash back from your e-receipts from a few different apps. Just connect your account and click scan every so often to obtain your points towards cash back. See Submit Receipts for more information.
Amazon Gift Cards
Gift cards are not just for gifts. You can also buy them at a discounted rate and earn them too.
- Reload Gift Card Bonus
Sometimes Amazon runs specials that will give you money back for reloading your gift card with a specified amount. For example, you may get $10 for loading $100.
- Buy Discounted Gift Cards
There’s a few sites you can get discounted Amazon gift cards. I will be adding more information about these soon.
- Earn FREE Gift Cards
Get Paid By Amazon
There are a few things that you can do to get paid by Amazon. I’ll be adding more here soon.
- Amazon Mechanical Turk (mTurk)
mTurk consists of mostly microtasks that you do for Amazon. This may include surveys, extracting receipt information, provide search results, pulling data from a site, rate pics, and so on.
When you first start, you only qualify for lower paid tasks that will increase over time. I’ve seen some pretty decent income reports from people doing this.
- Amazon Shopper Panel
This is an app that you would install, and then you may possibly have to wait for an invite. When you start with the program, you would then upload ten receipts a month. They will then pay you a $10 credit to your Amazon account. See the Submit Receipts page for more like this.
Amazon lets you donate part of your purchase.
- Amazon Smile!
Shop at smile.amazon.com and they’ll donate a percentage of your eligible purchases to your favorite charity. There is no extra cost and there are several charities to choose from.
