Most college students know that you can find anything you might need on Amazon. Whether it’s phone chargers or textbooks, Amazon can send it right to your door. But it can be difficult to know if you’re getting the best deal. Here are three ways to help you save an extra buck on Amazon.com.
Use Your Student Email
If you haven’t heard by now, you can use your student email to get Amazon Prime free for six months. Perks of Amazon Prime include expedited shipping, exclusive deals and free access to the Prime video streaming service. All you have to do is visit the Prime Student sign-up page, enter your uh.edu address and you’re set to go. Just don’t forget to cancel it after six months if you can’t afford to keep up with payments.
Honey is a web extension that scans every website you shop on for potential coupons or deals. It works well with Amazon, and it can save you a significant amount on your purchase. Furthermore, if no discounts are available for the items that you want to by, Honey will recommend you other items that are cheaper or on sale. Just visit www.joinhoney.com to install it.
Amazon uses your browsing data to track your viewing and spending habits. If the website sees that you’ve repeatedly viewed a product, it will hike up the price because it knows that you are more likely to buy it. To prevent this, browse on a private tab so the site doesn’t have any information about you.
By following these tips, you’ll be even closer to finding the Amazon deals of your dreams.
