Updated 10/17/2017 – This is part one of a two part series about how to find discounts on Amazon. This is part two.
Did you know that you can find discounted items on Amazon? I’m talking about huge discounts on stuff! Literally, this post will tell you how to find items 99% off on Amazon.
Not only can you get things cheaply, but you can use them to save money as well.
Most Amazon orders will give you free shipping as long as your purchase is over $25.00. However…what if your total is just short of that limit? The answer is easy (and definitely cheaper than shipping). Just find something you would normally use, like a flash drive (for 99% off) and purchase it as a filler item in order to save money on shipping.
Using the Amazon category codes from the Survival guide, you can still do fun stuff with the search string in your address bar. Here’s a look at a search that I just ran.
The part at the very end (90-99) indicates the amount of discount you will be searching for.
The ‘category codes’ go in the middle of the string. In this case, it’s the ’541966′ right between the n%3A and the %2Cp. You can change that number to any other code for whatever category you want to troll for discounts.
In case you’re too lazy to view the above link, here’s a list of the category codes.
