A couple weeks ago we wrote about five different Amazon Subscribe & Save grocery deals that beat online prices for Walmart, Target and Costco. My shipment of all five items arrived earlier this week! I actually got the Kleenex last Friday. The rest of my items came together this Monday. All the items arrived in good condition, and I was impressed with how quickly they shipped!

If you’re interested in giving online grocery shopping a whirl, now is the time! We cover Amazon grocery deals, and we make it super easy (and inexpensive!) for you to try out!

Here’s how the deals are so good: 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:

  1. Avoid impulse buys at the grocery store.
  2. Save on gas by avoiding a trip to the store.
  3. Avoid long lines, grumpy cashiers, empty shelves and screaming children (Walmart shoppers, can I get an “Amen”?).

Here’s a breakdown of what we bought. These deals are still available. We matched up these items with Amazon coupons and the Subscribe & Save discount. 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 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. I received most items in 10 days, as estimated, but I did get the Kleenex after seven days.
