I’ve been using Subscribe & Save feature from Amazon for a while now and once they implemented the 20% off five items discount, it became even more useful. I don’t always purchase five items, but I do when it makes sense. I thought I would share how I use the system to my advantage starting with my shipment this month.
This month I needed Bob’s Red Mill Almond Meal/Flour and since it’s more expensive than I would pay locally, I kept the item in my cart until it lowered a bit. Once it lowered to $30/4 pounds (pre-discount), I purchased it via Subscribe & Save. At that price, I would get a $5 discount if I found four more items for the month so I worked on finding reasonably-priced items I needed or wanted. I frequently check slickdeals.net, as they always have great deals and by the end of the month, I found six additional items.
Below is a breakdown of the skin and body care items I purchased this month. The Amazon price is the price I paid with all discounts. You can always find discounts at the drugstore, especially if you do a lot of couponing. I find couponing fun, but very time-consuming, so this method works better for me. Anyway, below is what I purchased this month.
1.) Olay Age Defying Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream
This may go to my mom. I haven’t decided yet.
2.) Seventh Generation Refreshing Facial Wipes in Mandarin (30 wipes)
Because why not?
3.) St. Ives Skin Renewing Body Lotion (21 oz.)
This is quickly becoming a holy grail hand lotion for me. I love the ingredients, the price (compared to my much-loved Gold Bond), and the results. I will do a before and after on this one day. When I use it religiosuly, it works magic on my dry-as-bones hands.
4.) John Frieda Frizz-Ease Smooth Start Conditioner (10 oz.)
5.) Olay Daily Moisture Quench Moisturizing Body Wash (13.5 oz.)
6.) Nivea for Men Energy Face Scrub (4.4 oz.)
My husband loves this scrub. I don’t really understand it, but I do pick it up for him when it’s cheap.
