Amazon often runs various discounted offers, such as $15 off $50 on household items or $10 off $50 on grocery items. These can be stacked along with the Subscribe&Save discount, but it’s not easily apparent how to do so. I just ran through this for personal use, so thought I’d share the options here. (Affiliate links below.) I’ll use the $15 off $50 household deal in the examples below.
- If you don’t have a single item that meets the minimum spend requirement, for example, you intend to buy two things of Bounty for $33 and 2 things of Kleenex for $17 which brings you to the $50 minimum. In this case, you can not stack the $15 discount along with the 15% S&S discount, but you can stack it with the 5% discount. You also can stack this with the no-rush-shipping credit.
- Add the items you want to your cart as a ‘one-time purchase’, NOT the S&S option.
- In cart, you’ll see the option to S&S to save 5%. Choose this option one item at a time. (You have not yet subscribed, that’ll only be completed when you get to the checkout screen.)
- At checkout, you’ll see both the $15 discount and the 5% S&S discount.
- You’ll also likely see an option to get a no-rush-shipping credit.
- Your first order will ship out immediately. Future orders will ship out on your monthly S&S order date, along with other S&S items. You’ll get the 15% discount on future purchases if you meet the 5-item criteria, and on the first purchase you’ll get 5% plus the $15 discount.
- If you have a single item that meets the minimum spend requirement, for example, you intend to buy three things of Bounty for $50.07. In this case, you can choose the S&S option immediately on the item page, along with a quantity of three. You’ll get the $15 discount PLUS the 15% S&S discount on your first order. In this case, your first order will not ship immediately, rather it’ll ship on your S&S date, along with your other S&S items. In this case, you can not get any no-rush shipping credit.
If you already have a subscription for an item, you can simply cancel that one and create a new subscription with both the 5/15% discount, plus the other discount on top. For example, I have a monthly subscription on Bounty Paper Towels from Amazon. I cancelled that one, and ordered 3 of these 8 Bounty rolls, and paid just $27.56 (full price is $50.07) since I got both the $15 off, and the 15% discount. (Though the 15% discount brings my total below $50, the coupon still works since the ‘real’ cost is above $50.)
