“Mommy, I want this!” Going to the grocery store can be a real struggle if you are a mom, especially with young kids! Getting everyone in and out of car seats, dealing with tantrums in the middle of aisle 5 when they don’t get the cereal with the princess on it, or you don’t get the right shopping cart (yes, that has happened!).
When I don’t have time to go to the store or it is just one of those days where I am struggling to keep my sanity, I love ordering my groceries and household goods from Amazon. Not only does it save me time but it can also save me a lot of money.
There are some tricks that I use to save the most on groceries with Amazon Prime. I love using Amazon Prime because the prices are always low and I get free 2 day shipping on over 50 million items!
I know that the $99/year fee for Amazon Prime can be a bit much if you are on a super tight budget but to me it is so worth it.
To help people that are on government assistance, Amazon is offering customers access to Amazon Prime at a monthly discounted price. If you have an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card you qualify for the discounted membership, which is $5.99 per month!
You can learn more and sign up for a free 30 day trial before you pay anything out of pocket.
You can get the exact same Amazon Prime benefits like: Prime Reading, Prime Photos, Prime Music, free 2 day shipping, and more at a discounted price with no commitment. You pay month to month instead of a full year up front to see if it will help you save time and money on your shopping.
Once you are all signed up for an Amazon Prime account, you can start using this tips to save even more on your groceries with Amazon Prime:
- Look for items with coupon offers: Yes, Amazon offers items that have coupons that you can “clip” when you add the item to your cart. To find all of the items that have this offer, go to “Prime Pantry” then click on “Coupons and Deals” at the top and then “Coupons” to see all that are available.
- Prime Pantry: You can get some great deals when you order in bulk on Amazon but I know that not everyone needs 50 rolls of toilet paper at a time or you just don’t have the space. You can order through Prime Pantry to save on regular sized items. You do need to order at least 5 items to get free shipping to make it cost effective for Amazon to ship your box.
- Subscribe and Save: If you know you are going to need something replenished every month, 3 months, or six months, you can use subscribe and save to save a percentage off of the item, up to 35%. This is great for things like paper goods, diapers, personal care items, etc. Plus, you don’t have to remember to order again, it is sent at the monthly increment that you prefer.
- Deal of the Day & Lightening Deals: To see the best deals that Amazon has to offer, you can check out “Today’s Deals” at the top of the homepage. You can then narrow it down by category, price, or percentage off.
- Amazon Fresh: This isn’t available in all areas so you can enter your zip code to see if your area is covered. If it is, this is a great way to save on fresh and organic meats and vegetables sent directly to your door. I compared some of the prices to the sale prices at my local grocery store and they were a lot cheaper on Amazon!
I am so glad that Amazon Prime is offering a discount membership so that more people will be able to afford it and take advantage of all that they have to offer. I personally love getting free ebooks every month, not to mention that we don’t pay for cable with all of the Amazon Videos that are offered.
It really helps us save in more areas than just groceries but I know that is a big part of the average family’s budget so I wanted to make sure you save the most on your groceries with Amazon Prime by taking advantage of all the deals and coupons that they offer.
