Some Amazon Shopping Tips

With the holiday shopping season in high gear, I just wanted to share some Amazon shopping tips…

The first is that, for those with Amazon Prime, you can get an extra month of Prime added to your account (a so-called “Prime Extension”) if they miss the promised delivery date. Policy details can be found here.

The second is that Amazon apparently has an unpublished policy for matching price drops on their own site within seven days of your purchase. To take advantage of this, all you have to do is contact customer service and ask for the adjustment.

Note: They used to (officially) honor price drops for up to 30 days, so this isn’t nearly as good as it used to be, but it’s still a nice option to have.

And finally… As an added bonus, I’ll just point out that you can use Amazon’s Subscribe & Save service to get discounts on things that you buy regularly.

Better still, if you sign up for Amazon Mom, the discount is larger. This service piggybacks on Amazon Prime, and comes with a free month trial for non-Prime customers. It’s definitely worth checking out.

Oh, and guess what? They don’t actually verify the details of your parenthood, so it’s possible (depending on how you feel about such things) to sign up whether or not you have kids. I’ll leave that decision up to you…
