Save money: how to beat inflation on home essentials on Amazon Prime Day – TechRadar

Just a quick PSA from us – if you didn’t know already, there’s a super powerful tool over at Amazon that’s really, really useful if you’re looking to save some cash on household essentials in the build up to this year’s Amazon Prime Day.

We’re talking about the retailer’s ‘Subscribe & Save’ feature, which is available on thousands of products (opens in new tab) and allows you to save up to 15% on everything from toilet roll to hygiene products. It’s not exactly the most glamorous section of the Amazon site, but it might just be the best for beating inflation right now – along with all our other money saving tips with Amazon Prime.

Using Subscribe & Save (opens in new tab), you set a repeated order for anywhere between two weeks to six months per item, with discounts ranging anywhere from 5% to 15% depending on how many products you set up. You need to get 5 items delivered at once per order for the full discount, so it’s worth putting a bit of thought in to streamline your order. 

To further drive up the savings, Amazon also has a range of coupons (opens in new tab) that offer up to 30% off your first order. Available on everything from disposable razor heads to dog bites, these coupons are another great way to kick off your subscription with a particularly good saving.

What’s great about Subscribe & Save, aside from the 15% saving, is that it’ll automatically entitle you to free delivery for your orders, regardless of whether you’re an Amazon Prime member or not. Note, there are a select number of items that are exclusive to Prime members, but these listings are the exception to the rule.

If you’re interested, we’ve rounded up a few example Amazon Subscribe & Save deals just down below. We’ve focused on US products here but it’s worth noting that this service is also available in the UK and other regions.
