Recently a cost-conscious colleague told me she orders all her home goods online. When I asked her which service she used, she said I had never heard of, so I went right home to investigate…and was instantly hooked. If you're new to and, this post will give you helpful hints to jump right in and start saving.

1. How / helps you save money.

Here are just some of the savings you will find:

  • Auto reorder & save: Automatic 10% discount on reorders.
    • Say you normally purchase Dawn dishwashing liquid for $3.99. When you set your account up to auto-reorder it at set intervals, you save 10%—so you pay $3.99 – $0.39 = $3.60
  • ShopRunner membership: Get free shipping.
    • Normally all orders ship free only after your cart reaches a $25 balance. A ShopRunner membership means every order ships free.
  • Volume discounts: Get steeper discounts when buying in bulk.
    • Save an extra 20-50% when ordering at least 2 of a qualifying item.
  • Drugstore Dollars program: Earn 5% back in shopper credits.
    • Dollars automatically accrue with each order—so if you place a $50 order, you accrue $2.50 that you can use as cash for future orders.

2. How to get started with /

Both sites are free to use, and getting started is easy.
