Interested in giving online grocery shopping a whirl? The Krazy Coupon Lady is now covering Amazon grocery deals, and we’re making it super easy (and inexpensive!) for you to try out!
Here’s the scoop: Amazon has digital coupons available for tons of grocery items. Plus, Amazon has a program called Subscribe & Save. If you subscribe and save to five or more items, you’ll get 15% off all of them–and that 15% off can be combined with the existing Amazon coupons!
Why do we like the idea of shopping for groceries online? Here are just a few reasons:
- Avoid impulse buys at the grocery store
- Save on gas by avoiding a trip to the store
- Avoid long lines, grumpy cashiers, empty shelves and screaming children (Walmart shoppers, can I get an “Amen”?)
Here’s an easy way to get started. Buy and subscribe to the following five products. We’ve matched up these items with Amazon coupons and the Subscribe & Save discount. All the final prices listed below beat Walmart, Target and Costco prices! Read the bottom of this post for more details.

Pretty great, huh?! Here are a few noteworthy details:
- There is no obligation. You can cancel or delay any of your subscriptions at any time (even if you’ve only received the items once). Don’t cancel until after you receive the shipment notification.
- All Subscribe & Save items ship for free, even if you don’t have Amazon Prime.
- You cannot purchase all five items together. You must subscribe to each item, one at a time. It will look like you’re only receiving a 5% discount, instead of the 15% discount, as you purchase each one. Once you subscribe to the fifth item, you’ll receive a notification in your account that you’ve qualified for the 15% discount. The coupon savings will disappear, but you’re not losing your coupons.
- The coupon will only be applied to the first delivery of each subscription.
- The estimated delivery date, for me, was 10 days after I placed the orders.
