Super-savvy old-school coupon clippers can make an art form out of saving money. And though you may think online shopping doesn't quite allow for the same form of self-expression, you'd be wrong. At least when it comes to Amazon, which has one place where you can access a bounty of coupons — just like thumbing through the newspaper in olden times. You can see what's available, search for coupons from your favorite brands and generally revel in the thrill of saving. Amazon's secret page of coupons is available to you anytime. (Get a load of the categories list in the left-hand column!)
How it works
On this special page, Amazon offers up various discounts on things like tools, pet supplies, electronics and fashion. You can "clip" (aka "click") the coupons of your choice, and the items are added to your cart for purchase — the discount is applied when you check out, now or later. Don't worry if you don't see the discount in your cart right away — it'll show up at checkout.
You can also use the search bar on the coupons page to hunt down coupons for brands you like. Above the list of categories on the left side, click "your coupons" to view the ones you've clipped; this is a great tool for comparing discounts.
The "Sort By" drop-down menu can show various groupings: coupons offering the biggest savings; based on expiration date; and the most popular "couponed" items.
Coupons are only eligible for one item, which means if you buy three identical massagers, only one will receive the extra discount.
New coupon offers are constantly being added, so bookmark this hub and check it regularly for up-to-date savings.
Although you don't have to use your coupons immediately, there is an expiration date for each, so if you find something you want, best to get it sooner rather than later.
If you return an item bought with a coupon, the amount you saved might be subtracted from the return credit.
You can share a coupon on social media or via e-mail, so if you find a discount that a friend will love, send it their way (it won’t take away your ability to use it).
Head on over to Amazon's secret coupon page and scope out a slew of savings. But first, have a gander at these products we plucked from the latest listings — just don't forget to click the on-page coupon. Happy shopping!
Best kitchen coupon
"I was looking for a stand mixer originally, however this mighty little machine is pretty much all I need," said a five-star fan. "It works GREAT with my mixing bowls. I have made breads and desserts, and many other delicious things with ease."
Best home coupon
"I’m an aesthetician, need a lot of towels. And this brand was one of the best — great and soft cotton, durable," said a happy customer.
Best smart-home coupon
"I wanted an outlet to replace a smart plug which stuck out too far and interfered with furniture being pushed against the wall. This outlet saves at least an inch of space, which in my situation was important," said a happy customer." I also really like the flexibility of the two plugs being separately controllable."
Best personal-care coupon
"This is a great scale! It has so many features, yet is easy to use, even for those who don't want the extra features and just want a simple scale!" said a happy customer. "I basically fit both of those categories. I will definitely, eventually, download the compatible app, turn on Bluetooth and sync the scale to my smartphone, in order to take advantage of the many features that are offered (like learning my BMI, tracking my weight loss, etc.). But, right now, I'm just using the scale to check my weight a couple of times a week, as I am in the process of losing weight."
Best car coupon
"I bought this because the lumbar support in my truck did not reach high enough on my back," shared a rave reviewer. "I was able to adjust this one to reach exactly where I wanted some support. I used to have an achy back a couple of times a week before I started using this. I haven't had any pain since I installed this."
Best fashion coupon
"I bought these to use as pjs and I have since purchased multiple colors," said a five-star fan. "I am never hot or cold, in bed or lounging around the house. These are fitted, so I will use them as a base layer for outdoors when the weather is colder. Slick on outside (pet hair doesn’t stick) and fleece inside. Very lightweight. Highly recommend!"
Best electronics coupon
"I bought this speaker almost 7 years ago," raved a five-star reviewer. "I only thought to leave a review when my husband reminded me that this speaker is indestructible. I've dropped it in lakes, in the bath, and on concrete. The Bluetooth connectivity is fast and simple. The battery lasts a surprisingly long time and the sound quality still holds up. It's great, buy it."
