In an ideal world Amazon would prefer you to buy everything at full price but to be fair to them they do offer some great ways to save money if you hunt for special promotions or stackable deals. Here are 10 ways to save money at Amazon:
Voucher codes section
Simply put these are discounts that are automatically applied at check out or on the first subscription (with subscribe and save). Some vouchers may only be available to Prime members. This page shows a full list of them and is searchable.
Subscribe and save
When buying selected products from Amazon you may see this option called ‘Subscribe & Save‘, basically you pay today’s price and they ship your product out, then after the allotted time frame they will send you another and this continues.
In exchange for regular deliveries you get the 5% off your first order and all subsequent orders but the beauty of this is you can amend your subscription at any point, to change the date or simply cancel the subscription. Either way a nice 5% off your first and future purchases is always welcome, subscribe to more than 5 items and get 15% off the whole lot.
Amazon Bargain Finder
A special Amazon/10ways tool that allows you to find genuinely good deals. The tool was originally used by us behind the scenes but we’ve made it public so everyone can benefit!

Amazon Filler Tool (to hit the £20 mark for free delivery)
On May 1st 2015 Amazon introduced a £20 minimum spend before you can get free delivery. Often we found our baskets were a few quid away from this and we struggled to find some cheap but also good value deals to hit the £20 mark.
We’ve made this tool to help you find items to bump you up to that £20 mark. For example, if you are buying a DVD for £18 with £3.50 delivery, you could add a £2 CD and save £1.50!
