How to Use Amazon Subscribe & Save



Amazon Subscribe & Save is a super simple program available to all Amazon customers. Participating in Amazon Subscribe & Save is as simple as choosing the “Subscribe & Save” option when you check out with participating products. You then choose the frequency of your subscription. You can choose to receive the subscription product anywhere from once a month to once every 6 months.

What is the benefit of Subscribe & Save? 

The discount for signing up with Subscribe & Save is 5% for 4 or less subscriptions. The true savings kick in when you have 5+ subscriptions that all arrive at the same time. At that time, your discount skyrockets up to 15% off!

Are there any additional benefits? 

Often times, Amazon will also offer coupons for Subscribe & Save items. You can use these coupons to add to your savings. The catch is that the coupons are one time use only. So say you get the traditional 5% off these Cascade Complete ActionPacs Dishwasher Detergent (or 15% if you have 5+ subscriptions) AND there is a $2 off coupon that you can “clip”…that $2 off coupon will only apply to THIS shipment of Cascade Complete ActionPacs Dishwasher Detergent.

The trick here is to keep track of when your subscriptions are set to ship and to set a reminder to check Amazon for any coupons or to see if the price has gone up. You can find this information under “Your Subscribe & Save Items”) on your account. You can also delay or cancel your subscription at any time.

Is it easy to cancel? 

It is ridiculously easy! Canceling is as simple as:

  1. Go to Your Account & Lists
  2. Click on Your Subscribe & Save Items
  3. Hover over the product and hit “Edit Subscription”
  4. Click Cancel Subscription

Super easy. There are many times I will purchase something via Subscribe & Save and then immediately cancel the subscription right after I take delivery. No phone calls to make, no high pressure sales situations trying to talk you out of your decision.

You can find a huge list of Subscribe & Save items on Amazon here. Also, be sure to follow FFF on Facebook and join our Facebook group. I post Subscribe & Save deals all the time!
