Smart Subscriptions That Pay: Tip-of-the-Day #25


This tip is really only for the individual that knows they will continue ordering online fairly consistently.

For instance, if you’re pretty certain you will order from Amazon on a regular basis, it makes sense for you to subscribe to the Prime membership. For $79 a year you get free two-day shipping on anything from electronics to toilet paper. I recently subscribed to Prime when I needed a vacuum cleaner and the shipping cost was almost half as much as the vacuum. I upgraded and immediately offset the subscription by half because I would have paid that anyway on the vacuum.

If you’re a savvy shopper, this kind of subscription will save you money in the long run. Another such site is Smartbargains. For only $9.95/yr. you get early access to special savings and shipping for just $2.95 (normally $9.95). It nearly pays for itself on your first order!
