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.
If you're into coupons, there's one place on Amazon you can go to access a bounty of them. It's just like thumbing through the newspaper in olden times. You can see what coupons are available, search for coupons from your favorite brands, and generally revel in the thrill of saving.
How it works
On this special secret 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 will 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 all of coupons 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; coupons based on expiration date; and the most popular "couponed" items.
If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? Well, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial here. (And, of course, even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
Coupons are only eligible for one item, which means if you buy three identical air purifiers, only one will receive the discount shown on the coupon.
New coupon offers are constantly being added, so check the page 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 email, so if you find a discount your friend will love, send it their way (it won’t take away your ability to use the same one).
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. Holidays, here we come. Happy shopping!
These fuzzy slippers from Zizor aren't just warm and cozy, they feature Velcro fasteners to make them adjustable. The closed back design ensures they stay on the feet and the rubber sole doubles as an anti-slip grip. With over 10,000 five-star ratings, they're a hit as well. "Have had my slippers for about a month," said one review. "Indestructible, comfortable and warm!! It was 13 degrees out this morning, and I went out to shovel a few inches of snow- with a pair of socks and my slippers. Was outside for about half an hour shoveling. My hands eventually were cold in my mittens- but my feet were still totally warm. This isn't the first time I've done this- it's easier than grabbing my bulky boots when there's only a few inches of snow. I have never had a pair of slippers that I enjoy so much. Just ordered another pair as a spare. They wash and dry great, and so far have held up amazing, despite the use I'm giving them. Absolutely love them!!"
Save 50 percent: Hamilton Beach Countertop Toaster Oven
'Toaster oven' is kind of a misnomer — because these little wonders can also bake and broil, and save you having to heat up your big oven when the job is on the smaller side. This Hamilton Beach model is a great option because of its roll-top door design. Its spacious interior is roomy enough for six slices of toast, a 12-inch pizza or a 9-by-11-inch pan. Said one five-star Amazon shopper, “We especially like the roll-up door, since it's out of the way for pulling food out onto a nearby plate. It's a bit bigger than our last toaster oven, but still fits nicely on our kitchen countertop. And the oven makes GREAT toast, once you figure out where to set the timer knob for your preferred 'darkness'." And as for safety? This reviewer note that the oven "has a post on the rear that creates some defined air space between the hot rear surface and your wall." At half price, we're sold!
Save $10: LEVOIT Core 200S Air Purifier
Air purifiers are great for those with allergies — or anyone who wants to breathe better at home. This LEVOIT air purifier is one of the most popular out there; it captures 99.97 percent of airborne contaminants as well as dust, pollen, pet dander, mold spores and more. This model comes with a companion app so you can control it remotely, and it’s also compatible with both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. “I love this thing!” raved one shopper. “I bought this specific model because I liked the smartphone connectivity feature! After using it for about a week now, I can say that this thing is an absolute beast. I have it placed in my room and if something in the kitchen starts to smell up my room, I can very easily open the app and crank up this air purifier, and it will get rid of the smell in no time. The Sleep mode on this is amazing. It’s almost dead silent and it can go completely dark.... Five stars all around!”
Save $7: TOZO T6 True Wireless Earbuds
These TOZO T6 buds are a great alternative to more expensive Apple AirPods. They offer great audio, and pair easily with your phone. Plus, they’re water-resistant, so you can wear them while sweating it out at the gym. The battery lasts about six hours on a single charge and a total of 30 hours (!) with the charging case. One of 120,000+ five-star shoppers says: “These headphones are literally fantastic. I am a professional musician by trade and these have incredibly clear sound quality.... I love the ability to wear them in the shower and jam to tunes while they get soaked and survive it like a champ. Really high-end headphones.... I would recommend these to anyone looking for Bluetooth headsets similar to those made by Apple but for far less — and also better bass response!”
Get started on your smart home journey in seconds with this 4-pack of smart light bulbs from Sengled. All you need to do is twist them in, and you’re done! Controlling your Sengled light bulbs is easy; just tell Alexa to turn them on or off, change their colors, and more. These smart bulbs have more than 16,000 five-star reviews on Amazon!
“These lights are amazing,” said one shopper. “Colors are bright and true. I love the ability to control the power, brightness, and color with my voice through Alexa. I set them up on routines to make sure they’re off when not in use (read: when the other people in my house leave the lights on all night). Alexa integration was very easy - simply have your Echo device on, connected to the Internet, and nearby. Screw in the bulb and turn it on. I feel like I live on the Starship Enterprise.”
Save $7: Magicteam White Noise Machine
If you have trouble drifting off at night — or staying asleep once you're out — consider this white noise machine from Magicteam, on sale now. It has 20 different non-looping sounds including that of a fan, ocean, rain, bird, bonfire and more. It’s suitable for kids and babies too. With more than 22,000 five-star ratings on Amazon, you know it’s a winner.
“This is my favorite!” raved one shopper. “...I don’t want or need the fancy stuff — lullabies or dogs barking or whatever. This has a whole bunch of choices and they’re all the simple, peaceful stuff (my fave is like a box fan). Also, I CANNOT BEAR to hear repetitions or patterns in the track. This has absolutely nothing like that noticeable. Last, we like to travel with ours (it is SO GREAT being able to tune out hotel noise from outside or loud guests), but that means we need something small and easily portable. This is literally a small box that fits in my hand.”
Save $290: Roborock S6 MaxV Robot Vacuum Cleaner
The Roborock S6 MaxV sets itself apart from other robot vacuums with its advanced technology. It has not one, but two cameras, which lets it detect obstacles like cables and chair legs (and even — yuck — pet waste). It also has advanced ReactiveAI obstacle avoidance technology which gives it the smarts to avoid entanglements. This coupon drops the price of this vacuum from $750 all the way down to $460! Reviewers rave that this is an especially smart robot vacuum that doesn’t need to be baby-sat like others. “The best part about this robot is that it doesn't get stuck or lost,” said one five-star fan. “Using "no-go" zones with the app, I can tell it to avoid going under the couch or recliners which is where the Roomba would always get stuck....”
