Amazon.com’s Subscribe & Save program allows you to save 5–15% on purchases of groceries, pet supplies, household goods, baby items and more. This is great if you are low on time, homebound, or stores are too far away for frequent trips. Prices are often comparable to regular store sale prices and occasionally to good stock-up deals, especially when figuring in the rising price of gas to get to and from the store. As a bonus, all shipping is free.

By signing up for a product via Subscribe & Save, you are agreeing to automatically have a product repurchased and delivered to you every 1 to 6 months (customer chooses the time increment). You can skip a next shipment or cancel your subscription at any time, even immediately after your order, by looking under “My Account.”

Small print: Signing up for a Subscribe & Save product does not lock in the price for future buys or count toward the Super Saver Shipping purchase requirement. All Subscribe & Save shipping is standard time, so if you need items expressed, you’ll need to instead choose one or two-day shipping and forfeit the Subscribe & Save discount. Customers only pay when the product ships.
