Amazon: save on food with these Amazon coupons.

You hate shopping at a store? You like having stuff sent to your house? Me too.

So many items that I use alot of (like stuff for kid's sack lunches) I get in cases from Amazon.

There are several ways to make these purchases on Amazon cost even less:

Strategies for keeping your check-out amount at it's lowest on Amazon.
Amazon Clubs
Join Amazon Mom, Amazon Student, or Amazon Prime to get free shipping on all, many, or specific items that you purchase on a regular basis on Amazon.

Super Saver Shipping
Choose items that offer Free Super Saver Shipping. Many items on Amazon have free shipping if they are over $25 in price, called Super Saver Shipping. You can even narrow your search to just this category of items. Other smaller items can be grouped together to hit the $25 total and get the free Super Saver Shipping.

Subscribe & Save
Subscribe & Save items have extra discounts. I stock my sack lunch pantry with cases of items from the Subscribe & Save grocery on Amazon. Chips, fruit snacks, drink boxes, cases of macaroni and cheese, peanut butter, crackers, etc can all be had for an extra discount when you sign up to get them at intervals like once a month, once every three months, and once every six months.

Items that you use every day like toilet paper, paper towels, diapers and even coffee K Cups can be had for a discounted case price on Amazon. A lot of times, you can get those types of items cheaper in bulk on Amazon than you would buying them individually at the grocery store. And sometimes there are even coupons to use on top of the Subscribe & Save discount:

Amazon Coupons
Yep, there are even Amazon Coupons for household items. Check them out every week, and see if things you buy have an extra coupon code you can use at check-out for an extra discount. This discount may offset your sales tax, and still give you the bargain your'e after.

Grocery Sales & Specials
In your local store, the new sales start on Wednesday mornings. On Amazon, they start on Friday mornings. See all the new Grocery Sales & Specials, and check weekly to see if your favorite products are on sale this week.

Why I do some grocery buying on Amazon.
When you are buying items in bulk, you're changing your overall shopping strategy to get what you'll need THIS YEAR instead of THIS WEEK. If I find my child's favorite granola bars on sale for way cheaper than they'll ever be at the grocery store, I buy the case and keep them in my pantry. I won't have to buy them again for months, and I got them at the lowest price possible. The money I might have spent buying them every week is now used to buy something else in bulk.

This is stock-up or stockpile strategy. If everything I need for my household is bought at it's rock-bottom lowest price for the year, then the cost savings overall are significant.

And I love the convenience of having everything on Amazon sent right to my house. That's the biggest reason I buy from Amazon. And that's a convenience I'm not giving up anytime soon.
