Amazon Subscribe and Save: October 2013 Edition

You know, when I do my monthly shopping, it really is nice not to fill up my cart with big bulky stuff, leaving no room for the important things like canning jars and SD cards.  How do I do this, you might ask?  Simple – Amazon Subscribe and Save!  I’ve written about S&S before, and I’ll revisit it now.

I had eight items on my S&S list for the October delivery.  During September, I occasionally checked my shopping list and see how much those items cost at Walmart and on Amazon.  If an item on my list is cheaper on Amazon (factoring in the 15% discount for having more than five items in a delivery), I added it to my S&S list.  Here’s my October delivery inventory, with Amazon and Walmart prices:

 

Purina One Beyond Cat Food, Salmon and Brown Rice, 3-Pound Bag

  • Walmart – $7.38 + tax
  • Amazon – $6.27, no tax

 

Angel Soft Bath Tissue, 18 Double Rolls

  • Walmart – $8.47 + tax
  • Amazon – $7.20, no tax

Grand total from Amazon – $44.48

Amazon prices without my 15% S&S discount – $52.30

Savings on Amazon – 24.6%, $14.54

 

$14.54 … not a bad trade-off for waiting a few extra days for things to arrive on my doorstep and for someone else to do the picking, hauling, and delivery!
