(Updated 1/28/19) As many of you know, I’ve discussed Amazon shopping hacks before in great detail. But the new (and always changing) ways to save on Amazon continues to amaze me. So today I have 3 more highly-clever tricks to make the most of your Amazon shopping experience. From scoring a free $10 from Amazon, to cool credits for waiting more than 2-days for delivery, these tips are sure to blow your mind. Let’s break it down…
1. Score $5 for Adding Cash To Your Amazon Account
Available at over 30,000 participating stores, Amazon Cash is a simple way to add cash to your Amazon balance.
This is a great option for those who don’t have a credit card, debit card, or bank card.
You just visit a participating store, have them scan the Amazon Cash barcode within the Amazon app, and pay them cash for any amount up to $500.
The balance is then made available immediately for shopping on Amazon.com.
The best part is Amazon is currently offering a free $5 Amazon credit when you add $25 or more via Amazon Cash.
Yes, you read that correctly. Go do this immediately, whether you have a credit card or not, it’s FREE MONEY.
Expires on 3/31/19. But I’m guessing they will extend this expiration date as they have in the past.
2. Use FillerItem.com to Reach $35 Free Shipping Threshold
This Amazon hack is for non-Prime members.
As you’re probably aware, Amazon requires you to spend $35 to get free shipping.
Nothing worse than paying for shipping on your $32 order. Or worse yet, adding something to your cart that you don’t need just to get over the $35 threshold.
Enter the clever website Filler Item.com.
The site is kinda brilliant as it lets you enter the amount you need to get free shipping and pulls back hundreds of products that you might actually need.
In other words. get free shipping and a product that won’t waste your money.
Check out the site, it’s kinda fun to see what Amazon sells.
3. Consider “No-Rush Shipping” For Cool Credits
If you’re a Prime member, but don’t need the item in 2 days, consider selecting “FREE No-Rush Shipping”.
By doing so, you’ll get a free $1 reward to be used for digital items like music, movies, or book downloads.
Do this Amazon trick all the time and you’ll quickly get a free movie or several music downloads out of it.
These credits change quite often and have also included Amazon Pantry credits in the past.
