22 Things You Should Buy on Amazon
Do you love shopping Amazon?
Amazon offers easy savings (and convenience) on thousands of items, delivered right to our door. But it’s important to know what items really are great prices, and which items are worth heading to your local store for. My general rule of thumb is to check Amazon for anything I would make a quick trip to Walmart for, because so many items end up being less money, with no stress.
I love that. 🙂
So, curious what things I always watch for at Amazon before shopping elsewhere? Here you go:
1. Android apps (FREE)
2. Auto Parts
Try out the Amazon Basics brand ~ excellent reviews and a great price!
6. Coffee Pods
I buy my Estee Lauder foundation there because it helps me skip a trip to the mall!
10. E-Books (FREE)
13. Board Games
21. Toilet Paper
13 Things You Shouldn't Buy on Amazon
NOTE: ALWAYS (always!) be sure to check the price on Amazon to make sure the item isn't lower there before purchasing elsewhere. These tend to be things that I've noticed are higher at Amazon, but it's always worth doing a quick price check because sometimes they really do have the best deal!
2. Back to School Supplies*
Amazon does occasionally offer some serious discounts on these, but as a rule I think you'll get better prices during the back to school season at Staples, Office Depot or Walmart
3. Brand Name Apparel
try local stores using coupon instead ~ Dick's Sporting Goods for example offers tons of coupon codes
4. SOME Cleaning Supplies
always do your math on these to compare before purchasing – lately though I have seen quite a few deals on these at Amazon and always share them here on PPP, so be sure to sign up for free daily email updates so you never miss a deal!
a lot of grocery prices are still high at Amazon ~ you'll pay for Amazon's convenience which may be worth it, but know you may be paying more! Amazon does sometimes offer significant special savings, so watch PPP for those price drops – sign up for free daily email updates so you never miss those
8. Home Furnishings
9. Pet Food
because these are usually heavy, you'll get a better deal typically at your local grocery store, Target or Walmart
10. Pet Supplies
11. Photography Supplies*
12. Power Tools*
