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, which has one place where you can access a bounty of coupons — just like thumbing through the newspaper in olden times. You can see what's available, search for coupons from your favorite brands and generally revel in the thrill of saving. Amazon's secret page of coupons is available to you anytime. (Get a load of the categories list in the left-hand column!)
How it works
On this special 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'll 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 the ones 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; based on expiration date; and the most popular "couponed" items.
Coupons are only eligible for one item, which means if you buy three identical massagers, only one will receive the extra discount.
New coupon offers are constantly being added, so bookmark this hub and check it 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 e-mail, so if you find a discount that a friend will love, send it their way (it won’t take away your ability to use it).
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. Happy shopping!
Best personal-care coupon
"I was pleasantly surprised to find that it is precisely what I need for my small living space," said this happy, hydrated customer. "The water amount is sufficient for one night, the footprint does not take up much space at all, making it easy to move from room to room, and the cord is long enough to allow me to plug it in away from where the unit sits. Two of the best features are the two speeds and the soft blue light that can be turned off when the device is in my bedroom."
Best fashion coupon
"So versatile!" said a five-star fan. "Really holds your waist in to look slimming. I love the length; I am 5'5'', 134 lbs., and they just graze the floor when barefoot and look great with a pair of sandals. They can go from daywear to nightwear with a change of tops. I will be ordering another pair!"
Best electronics coupon
"This was our first purchase of a backup battery charger for our phones, and we're pretty pleased with it," said a five-star fan. "We manage to get two full charges out of it for an iPhone XR. While design and style were not decision factors for us, I will say that it looks nice with a brushed crosshatch pattern on the top of the device and subtle power level display."
Best smart-home coupon
“Gotta love technology,” said one turned-on reviewer. “I absolutely love these. Now I don't have to fumble my way through the house at night trying to turn on lamps. Even when coming home [and my] hands are full. It's nice just to ask to turn it on. I use it through my Google Assistant, easy setup. Well worth the price. Did I mention I Absolutely Love this product? I'm also ordering set for my brother who has MS and is bed-ridden — gives him a little more independence not having to ask to turn on/off lamps.”
Best home coupon
“I’ve had them for 18 months now, and they are holding up great. They maintained their shape. Seams are good. No pilling. I’m about to buy a new color and realized I should probably let people know they’re awesome,” said a happy shopper.
Best kitchen coupon
"This is so much easier than the clutter just shoved everywhere in my fridge," said a five-star fan. "Love these and I even used three in my pantry for caned food.... They fit so well and make it easier to find stuff."
Best car coupon
"Game changer!!! Should have done this year ago," said a five-star fan. "Got this for a cross-country road trip. Easy to install in my F150. Keeps all the kids' stuff in one place, so less of a mess in the back seat, and [there are] drinks, snacks, items to occupy time all right in front of them.... Don't feel it from the driver/passenger seat, as the straps can be tucked in the seat."
