6 Reasons We Love Shopping at Amazon

kindle-381242_640

Amazon is a money saver’s best friend.  There are many really great reasons why you should love Amazon if you love to save money.  

Here are 6 Reasons that We Love Shopping at Amazon:

  1. FREE Shipping.   When shopping Amazon, you can get free shipping in several ways.  
  • You can sign up for a Prime membership and get FREE 2 Day Shipping.
  • Purchases of $49 or more automatically qualify for free shipping.
  • Additionally, items that you purchase via their Subscribe and Save program come with free shipping and
  • lastly, there are many items that you can find on Amazon that come with free shipping (these are often from 3rd party sellers)
  1. Low Prices.  Amazon often has super low prices on your favorite items and sometimes their prices simply cannot be beat.  Oftentimes when you see another retailer drop their prices on an item, Amazon has dropped their price as well.
  1. Subscribe & Save.  We touched on this one earlier when we were discussing shipping, but Amazon’s Subscribe and Save option is a great one for household goods and groceries that you buy often.  S&S offers get an automatic 5% discount and sometimes coupons that are given solely to S&S purchases.  You can set an interval in which the item gets sent out to you or you can cancel your subscription immediately after your item ships.  Your choice!
  1. Amazon Family and Diaper Deals.  Amazon is one of the cheapest places that you can find diapers.  Amazon Prime members are automatically qualified to sign up for Amazon Family (if you are a caregiver) which gives you an additional 20% discount on diaper orders.  This deal alone can save hundreds of dollars per year for families with young children.
  1. Customer Service.  Amazon has great customer service and are great to work with in the event of returns..  I have had to return just a couple of things throughout my time as a customer and they always send you a pre-paid label for returns and as soon as your label is scanned by the shipping service, Amazon processes your return.   
  1.  Kindle.  What is not to love about Amazon Kindle?  If you love books, you will love Kindle.  As you have probably seen here on Freebies2Deals, Amazon often offers free Kindle books!  

Amazon’s Prime Day is the Biggest Day Ever

amazon-prime-day

The second annual Prime Day was the biggest day ever for Amazon. Amazon today announced customer orders surpassed Prime Day 2015 by more than 60% worldwide and more than 50% in the U.S. It was also the biggest day ever for Amazon devices globally and record Prime Day for each Amazon device category including Fire TV, Fire tablets, Kindle e-readers and Alexa-enabled devices. Prime Day was a great savings day too – members globally saved more than double on deals over Prime Day 2015.

“Prime itself is the best deal in the history of shopping, and Prime Day was created as a special benefit exclusively for our Prime members,” said Greg Greeley, Vice President, Amazon Prime. “We want to thank our tens of millions of members around the world for making this the biggest day in the history of Amazon. We hope you had as much fun as we did. After yesterday’s results, we’ll definitely be doing this again.”

Prime Day 2016 highlights globally:

  • Sold over 2.5x more Amazon Fire TV devices compared to Prime Day last year – Fire TV Stick was the best-selling Amazon device.
  • More than two million toys and more than one million pairs of shoes were purchased by customers on Prime Day 2016.
  • More than 90,000 TVs were purchased on Prime Day 2016.
  • Hundreds of thousands of Kindle e-readers sold on Prime Day.
  • Prime member orders on the Amazon app surpassed Prime Day 2015 mobile app orders by more than 2x.
  • More than a million customers used the Amazon app for the first time on Prime Day to shop and to watch-a-deal.
  • The Prime Photos sweepstakes had two million submissions worldwide during the lead-up to Prime Day, the winner will be randomly selected on or about July 14.

 
Prime Day 2016 highlights from the U.S.:

 
Fire TV Stick was Amazon’s best-selling device globally. Other top sellers around the world, excluding Amazon devices were:

 
Prime Day was another record-breaking success for the sellers and small businesses worldwide participating in the event. Small businesses and sellers on Amazon offering deals to Prime members saw orders nearly triple year-over-year on Prime Day – both worldwide and in the U.S. Feedback from sellers includes:

  • “On Prime Day we had one of the largest sales days in our company’s 108 year history. Prime Day is a win for sellers and customers.” – Larry Frankel, Director of Business Development, Huppins/OneCall
