We know about paper towels and diapers, but what are some of the less common items on your subscription list?
Let’s back up a moment. What is Subscribe and Save? If you have Prime from Amazon, you probably know that if you have a standing “subscription” order of an item, you save 5% on each delivery of that item. These orders can be set for the frequency of delivery you prefer, from one month to a year, and can be adjusted every month before your delivery date. And if you order 5 or more items per delivery, those savings can become 15% per item. This really adds up! Some people do this to save money by ordering items that are consistently cheaper on Amazon than they are locally, and some people use it for the convenience of steady deliveries of staples items.
A couple of years ago, we asked readers for some of their favorite household items they have on their Amazon subscribe and save lists. Now we asked some of our friends and family what are some of the things many people wouldn’t think of ordering on a steady basis. Below are some of those genius ideas. Note: Filler items refer to the small items which take your monthly subscription up to 5 items and eligible for 15% off instead of 5%. Very often, the savings from the more expensive items getting a better discount are higher than the amount spent on the filler item.
