You probably know by now that you can sign up for subscriptions to items on Amazon– 5% at first, and up to 15% when you have 5 or more subscriptions. Maybe though, you think “but I don’t need a subscription of pens with stylus tips” (which I just bought today.).
Quick backstory- my kid is doing virtual learning, and the stylus pens help her “write” and trace on the ipad her school provided. So she actually gets to do the worksheets and I don’t have to print out a ton of pages a day, which is a savings in and of itself.
So the pens I chose were $14.99 for a dozen if I just buy them straight out. However, a subscribe and save meant they would only cost $14.24. That’s a 75 cents savings. So I chose that option at checkout and patted myself on the back for saving three quarters of a dollar.
Then, I clicked right on over to subscribe & save and cancelled my subscription for more pens to arrive three months from now, because -fingers crossed- we don’t need 12 new stylus pens every 3 months.
If you set up a monthly subscription for something you don’t need right away and you’re waiting on it to ship out, or you’re trying to hit that sweet 15% discount with 5 or more subscriptions, simply put a reminder in your phone’s calendar to check your subscriptions each month, that way you don’t show up to a pile of pens and miscellaneous other things on your porch when you didn’t need them.
Or- keep your subscriptions and save money on things you truly do need every month- like toilet paper, trash bags and other household goods! I know Brandy swears by her month Subscribe & Save deliveries! You can always skip a month or cancel outright if you end up with more on hand than you need.
