Our Verdict

No idea why this is working for some and not others, I guess it’s targeted but I see buy $75 get $25, but don’t see the $25 instant discount. DansDeals was able to get the deal to work, so I assume it’ll work for some of you. As always make sure to price match as even after the discount it might still be cheaper to buy from Costco or similar.

Works for me. I added a bunch of stuff to my cart to test it. The problem is most of it is either stuff I don’t need or stuff I can get a better deal on at Costco.

I was actually able to make this work for me. I had recently placed and order for Seventh Generation dish soap and used no rush shipping since we’re not quite out yet but my wife mentioned we were getting low. It hadn’t shipped yet and I was able to successfully able to cancel it which added enough to the total to bring me just over the $75 mark along with some other stuff we need.

@Bradley unless you’re lucky and subscribe when the price happens to be really low subscribe and save usually isn’t worth. The New York Times recently did a piece researching commonly subscribed items and how much the average price fluctuates on those items. The vast majority of the time the 5% and often even the 15% isn’t enough to bring it below normal Amazon price fluctuations. You’re much better off setting up alerts for when the price goes to the low end of the average fluctuation range with CamelCamelCamel and buying the stuff then. Especially for non-perishables that you can buy keep even if you don’t need more of the item quite yet.

A few items have coupons. I noticed I still get the $25 off even when the coupon takes my total below $75.

The problem with this deal is you forgo a potential 15% Subscribe & Save discount if you mix and match with different items. Most people seem to be going with 4 of the cottonelle TP 36-packs, brings the total to ~$78 total. After coupon, 15% S&S discount, and the $25 off it brings the total to approx 30 cents per roll.

i hate how amazon is no longer the cheapest. its YMMV still but there has been too many times Amazon price sucks or price changes ASAP after I buy it.

this deal is a good example. $25 off is a joke. thats cuz everything on this list is overpriced by $25 total. not sure I would buy anything on this special list. just looked at a few I would be interested in and Costco Walmart Sams Club beats it hands down. Only more expensive at Target. Not to mention Google Express is having deals all over too.

I found the same thing out –> You have to get the items on the list, not necessarily the department.

I price matched to Walmart and found that some items were much cheaper (i.e: shick quattro 8 pack refill), and some that were over priced (i.e: Reynolds tin foil).

worked. not a great selection but the vitaminwater zero had a 25% off coupon to clip so that was a nice bonus.
