Subscribe and Save Tutorial

How Do I Save Money with Subscribe & Save?

Learn how to use Amazon’s Subscribe & Save feature each month to best take advantage of their coupons and sales! It’s easy!

Join Amazon Prime.

There’s a lot more to Prime membership than just FREE 2-day shipping. You’ll also get Amazon Family membership (20% off diapers), unlimited photo storage, audible channels, music and video streaming, early access to Lightning Deals, free Kindle books, just to name a few. If you’re an online shopper, the membership is well worth it!

Familiarize yourself with the Subscribe & Save feature.

The more you have in your monthly S&S, the more you save–up to 15%! However,  diapers on S&S are automatically 20% off, no matter how many other items you have on S&S!

Combine your S&S savings with current coupons or sales.

This is how you save big! When they offer a coupon on a product you’d purchase anyway, just select the coupon and add it to a S&S. For instance, here I doubled up on these snack bars. I selected the 25% off coupon, but then I also added it to my monthly Subscribe & Save to get an additional 15% off (you have to have 5 or more items in your S&S to get the maximum 15% off, but it’s pretty easy to find that many deals each month).

As you can see, I saved $4.32 with the coupon and then an additional $2.59 with S&S.

Delete Your Subscribe & Save after your first shipment.

You can only use the coupon on the first S&S shipment, so it’s best to cancel unless it’s an item you want to keep getting. You’re still getting the monthly savings for just using S&S, so sometimes it’s worth it to keep a subscription going.

How do I delete my Subscribe & Save?

I have my S&S arrival date set to the 1st of each month. So throughout the month, I collect what I want, or what I think I might want, for my next S&S. I like to try to have at least 5 items set to S&S each month if there are items with coupons I normally purchase anyway. On the 15th of each month, I go through my selections and decide what I want to keep and what I want to delete. It’s really fast and easy to delete your S&S.

Deleting S&S in the Amazon App

Go to “Your Account.”

Then go to “Your Subscribe & Save.”
Select the item you no longer wish to purchase and scroll all the way down to the bottom where it says “Cancel subscription.”
Select “Confirm cancellation” (no need to select a reason).

On the next screen, scroll all the way to the bottom again and select “Delete subscription.” You’ll just confirm that on the next screen.

Delete S&S in Your Web Browser

Go to “Your Subscribe and Save Items” under the “Accounts & Lists” menu.

Roll your mouse over the item you want to delete. Select “edit” when the menu pops up.

Select “cancel subscription.”

Confirm cancellation.

On the next screen you’ll see that your subscription has been cancelled.

Roll your mouse over the cancelled item and select “edit.”

Delete subscription.

And confirm.

That’s it! You’re done. Now all you have to do is look for more deals! Check out the most current Amazon S&S deals here!
