Joanie here. I’ve got a secret I’ve been keeping from you all. Over the summer, I slacked and got out of my couponing routine. But, it’s not all bad. My slump led me to some new discoveries and now I’m here to tell you all about how I’m beating Costco and Walmart prices without leaving my home!

I always knew Amazon had digital coupons. I always knew about Amazon Subscribe and Save, a program that sets you up to receive products at regular intervals. (Don’t worry, you can pause, delay or cancel anytime after your products ship under My Account.) What I didn’t know is that if I subscribe to five items, I get 20%* off all of them, and I can stack coupons to save even more. Check out the deals below. I just bought all this stuff this morning. To get these prices you must subscribe to five items- not necessarily these ones, but I kinda made it easy if you want to just follow my list.

*Amazon Mom members get 20% off through October 31st. Everyone else gets an additional 15% off.

Amazon Subscribe and Save items usually arrive about a month after you order. If you don’t want to keep receiving the items, remembering to cancel is the only catch. You’ll get a notification email when the items ship. That’s your reminder! All subscribe and save items ship for free regardless of whether or not you have Amazon Prime.

You cannot purchase all five items together. You’ll have to subscribe to each one, one at a time. It’ll look like you’re only receiving a 5% discount instead of 20%, as you purchase one by one. Once you purchase the fifth item, you’ll see a notification in your account, saying you’ve qualified for 20% savings. But, the coupon savings will disappear. Rest assured, you’re not losing your coupons. Check out my chat with Amazon from this morning.
