1. What Is Amazon Subscribe & Save?
Amazon provides a service called Subscribe & Save. You can subscribe to the products of your choice at competitive and low price and receive them on a monthly basis. Amazon will deliver select items on specific date each month to your home, business, or destination. Click here to see the full list of products that you can subscribe to on Amazon.com. Shipping is always free.
Your first item is 5% off when you select Subscribe & Save. Subscribe to 5 or more items and get 15% off the items in that same shipment!
When you make a subscription, your items will ship on a certain date in one shipment. The date will be determined once you select to subscribe to an item. If you add a new subscription item less than 9 days from your monthly Subscribe & Save delivery day, it will not be delivered until the following month.

Here at Simple Coupon Deals, we have been using Amazon Subscribe & Save on all our grocery and household purchases. We love it a lot! Being able to save up to 15% (on entire orders with Amazon Subscribe & Save) or 20% (on select products for parents with Amazon Mom) on essential items in addition to already low prices is a steal! Not only does it help save money on the things we need, it saves us time by having our things shipped right to our front door. It’s easy to use, cost-friendly, and convenient; we only realized it when we took our first step to signup. You can, too!

5. How Often Is the Frequency of Subscription?
Amazon currently delivers Subscribe & Save items once per month in a bundle. You can skip or cancel the subscription at any time.
6. How Much Does it Cost to use Subscribe & Save?
Subscribe & Save is a free service. You do not have to be an Amazon Prime member (your shipments from Subscribe & Save do not ship via their 2-day service). You will only pay for the items delivered to you.
Please note: Credit cards and the Amazon.com Store Card are the only forms of payment that can be used to create Subscribe & Save subscription at this time.
7. Are There Any Fees to Keep the Service?
There are no fees associated with using Subscribe & Save. You only pay for what is shipped to your door.
8. Can I Use a Coupon?
Yes and Amazon provides them. Although Amazon Subscribe & Save already lists their items at great low prices, sometimes they will have digital coupons that you can use to further discount your merchandise. Please keep in mind that these digital coupons are only for eligible or certain items. You will know when the digital coupons become available because the coupons will automatically display on the product page or below item picture and price. That’s when you can virtually “clip” it to use towards your purchase. Don’t miss out, though! Digital coupons, like all others, are for a limited time only. Clip your digital coupons right away and use them as soon as possible to take advantage of the discounts before the promotions end; otherwise, the digital coupons will no longer be available.

We received a lot of questions about how Amazon’s Subscribe & Save option works so we put together this quick FAQ to help you decide if you want to use the service:
What is Amazon’s Subscribe & Save?
Subscribe & Save is a service that Amazon offers on select products at Amazon.com where you can subscribe and save 5% to 15% of the retail/listed price. A subscription is a recurring shipment that you can get automatically on a monthly basis. You can also skip a month or cancel it all together; there is no commitment required. To get the maximum 15% off per item you need to subscribe to 5 items per month/shipment. For diapers and select Amazon Family/Amazon Mom related products you can get 20% off automatically with Subscribe & Save!
Do I need to have an Amazon Prime membership to use Subscribe & Save?
You don’t have to have an Amazon Prime membership to use Subscribe & Save, however, most if not all coupons require a Prime membership. You can stack coupons with the 5-15% off Subscribe & Save discount so it’s best to sign up for a free 30-day trial if you don’t have a Prime membership!
What happens when you hit the Subscribe now button?
When you choose Subscribe now, your item actually does not ship right away, even if you have Amazon Prime, it will not ship in 2 days. You will receive the item at a later date, usually toward the end of the month or the following month depending on what day it is. Check your Subscription settings in your account for your exact date. When you hit Subscribe now, you lock in the price that you see, in real time, even if the item goes out of stock or the price goes up! You are not charged until the item actually ships.
If you change your mind, you can cancel the subscription from your account settings without have to pay any fees. There is no obligation to keep your subscription!
Will I pay the same amount the following month?
Prices are known to change at Amazon on any given product so you may or may not pay the same amount for your 2nd/future following shipment. Be sure to login to your account to review your subscription for any price changes before your order ships the following month. If the price does not change then you will pay the same amount.
What if I use a digital coupon on a Subscribe & Save product?
If you clipped a digital coupon on the product, you can save money on only one of the product, even if you decide to subscribe to two or more. The savings will deduct off the listed retail price and you can still save 5-15% for using Subscribe & Save. This is what we call stacking the savings or double-dipping on a deal. If you keep your subscription for the following month, the coupon discount is not valid on future subscription shipments, so the price you pay may change. Coupons are limited to one per user account so it will only apply to one item even if you buy two of the same or decide to keep your shipment. Unless the coupon is available to clip again the following month, expect your price to change. Either way, if there is a new coupon available the following month, you will need to cancel your shipment and set up a new subscription in order to clip a new coupon on the product.
The item is an Add-on that ships with a $25 purchase, can I still buy this item by itself?
With Subscribe & Save, it does not matter if the item is marked as “Add-on” – it will still ship REGARDLESS if you have a minimum order, as long as you choose Subscribe now, you can get the item shipped for free, by itself!
