In my quest to perfect my Amazon Subscribe and Save strategy, I’ve landed on these 13 favorites to keep on my list.

From coffee to windshield wiper blades, these are things that I never want to run out of, don’t want to lug around the store, or will seriously forget to buy otherwise.

I schedule my deliveries so I always get at least five items per order at 15% off (instead of 5% off of four items or less), and just add something small if I’m under five.

You’ll probably need to adjust the delivery frequencies as you figure out how often you’ll need replacements. Don’t worry, it’s really easy to edit between orders.


1. Order batteries for smoke detectors and other electronics every 2-3 months.

Raise your hand if you’ve ever been the victim of a screaming low-battery smoke detector at 2 am. And raise both hands if it woke the baby.

So been there! Never again when you have batteries on auto-order. Even better? Just change them out when you get a new shipment.


2. Get coffee beans and K-Cups delivered every month.

I use the premade K-Cups when I’m super busy and my reusable K-Cup with my favorite coffee grounds when I have the time. I don’t want to find out what would happen if I ran out of coffee, so I have that base covered with S&S every month.


3. Replace cleaning gloves every month.

Dry, itchy hands are the bane of my existence, so I use gloves for all my chores now, and Amazon keeps it convenient.


4. Schedule Sonicare replacement heads for delivery every month.

I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve forgotten to buy these at the store!



5. Get sponges delivered every 2 months.

I do so many dishes that sponges are basically an endangered species in my kitchen. I will never run out again!

6. Have motor oil delivered every 3 months.

If you change your own oil or you’re lucky enough to have a partner or friend who does it for you, auto-ordering fluids is convenient, and a great reminder.


7. Refill staples and tape every 3 months.

Staples, scotch tape, duct tape, packing tape, electrical tape… If you have a four-year-old, tape is likely to pull a disappearing act in your house. Build your secret tape stash.



8. Schedule trash bags for every 3-4 months.

This is another out-of-the-way item I used to forget at the store. I get 100 kitchen bags and 120 smaller bags per shipment.


9. Get windshield wiper blades delivered every 4-6 months.

So much better than waiting until they are tattered and gross. (Or scraping your glass!)


10. Set air filters to arrive every 4-6 months.

A/C units, air purifiers, refrigerators, cars… So many air filters to keep up with! They’re the perfect subscription items, because they’re bulky and otherwise slip my mind.



11. Replace hair ties and bobby pins every 6 months.

I hate, hate, hate it when I go to put my hair up and all my hair ties are lost or stretched out! I lose a lot of bobby pins too, and they’re pretty much useless once damaged. Subscribing to 100 hair ties and 100 bobby pins every 6 months saves me some sanity.


12. Schedule Brita filter deliveries every 6 months.

I used to run out of these a couple times a year, and then there was no telling when I’d remember to buy them again! I mean, what’s the point of a water filter if the filter doesn’t work? Now I get Brita filters delivered in a pack of 3 every six months (replacing them every 2 months).
