Amazon Deals - Think Again

Money Saving

Before you take advantage of what look like cracking Amazon deals on things that are widely available in supermarkets I’d recommend just checking on here using the Supermarket Comparison Tool. I’ve found even better money saving offers. What have you found?

I constantly point this out on Amazon deals and all I get back is "but it's free delivery with Prime". That's great if you pay £7.99 a month for Prime but I don't.

Not an Amazon Prime Subscriber? I think you’re in a minority group there Dennab, here on Latest Deals anyway. Last year 15 million Brits had access to Amazon Prime, 63% of 16-24s, and 52% of 25-34s for example, according to Mintel research. It'll be a lot more now.

Johnny Yes a minority of people not taken in by Amazon marketing, a minority who actually know how to save money. 😉

Dennab I could never understand what is so particularly special about Prime. Ok, you may get free delivery but Prime is as you say £7.99 a month. So you are still essentially paying whether you have Prime or not. Nothing is free.

RegularComper90 That's exactly it. I've needed precisely nothing from Amazon for months. Honestly when I signed up to a Prime trial for a month (one of many), I suddenly needed everything. It's addictive when you have it. That trial is a gateway drug! People will argue until they're blue in the face that they are saving money but many are just taken in by that extremely clever marketing tactic. Jeff Bezos is a retail genius and doesn't make $150,000 a minute from people who are just buying what they need and saving money.

There are some great deals on Amazon and some bad deals and some very naughty deals too.

I have prime but still look around. I've been buying a lot from ebay at the minute as the prices are cheapest for what I've wanted

To do a price comparison you can also type the product description into the Latest Deals search box and it'll do a price comparison for you, showing you the price at other retailers (on my laptop anyway, I'll have to check my phone). Also try typing the product description into Google, and see what the price is elsewhere. If you then click the 'Images' button on Google you'll often get even more results with prices. Handy.
