Sometimes, it's not as easy to get a deal on Amazon.com as it is with some of its competitors such as eBay.com or Overstock.com. While certain products may sell for a bit below retail price, there are still taxes, shipping and handling charges, and other fees that can drive the price of your order up. If you're the kind who likes to save every cent that you can, Amazon coupons may be what you're looking for. Here’s how to get Amazon coupons:
You can also start this process by simply searching “Amazon coupons” or “Amazon promo” in your favorite search engine, and then finding the same websites (or similar ones) that are listed above. Just remember that many of these promos will be expired, or will not work because they are not real codes, so try using a website you know and trust from the start.
There are two general kinds of coupons that you can use on Amazon: on-site discount coupons, and external promotional codes. We’ll explain what each of those are and exactly how to apply them to your Amazon order, and below we’ll go into more detail about obtaining promotions from external websites, if the instructions above were a bit too quick for you.
Amazon.com offers coupons right on its own website that give you one-time discounts on products that you buy directly from Amazon (i.e. not third-party sellers). To find these on-site Amazon discounts:
The amount of your coupon will be subtracted from the sale price, before fees and taxes are applied.
Promotional codes are sometimes found in emails and flyers from Amazon, but are more easily found on retail discount websites such as Coupons.com and RetailMeNot.com. They will usually give you deals such as free shipping, or 10% off your order. To find Amazon promo codes:
Note that the code may not work if you use it on an ineligible product, or the code has expired. In that case, try a different product, or try a new code.
And that’s how you get great deals on Amazon with promo codes and coupons!
