Honey.com is a fabulous plug-in that will automatically scan the Internet for coupons for anything that you purchase. If there is a discount, it will automatically apply it to your checkout on Amazon.com and other sites. Simple to use, this program can save you a lot of time and money.
2. Amazon Prime
Most people who frequently shop on Amazon.com use Amazon Prime for the free shipping service. If you do not need the items shipped immediately, you can opt for longer shipping times and Amazon will give you credits to your account. They are small, but they add up. Also, make sure that you take advantage of all of the Prime benefits, not just shipping.
Rakuten will give you a percentage back on any purchase you make when using a link on their site. Rakuten has been a very stable program that pays out a lot of money each year. The rebates will vary in percentage based on which store you use.
4. Choose Slower Shipping
Often if you choose slower shipping (and are a Prime member), Amazon will give you a credit to spend in the Amazon Pantry.

Or that shirt won’t match that pair of pants you’ve saved for that special occasion? No problem! Sign up for Amazon Wardrobe, get the clothes, and go from there! If you don’t like it send it back.
