Ways to save money with Amazon
With literally trillions of sales made on an annual basis, Amazon has evolved into one of the strongest and most recognisable brands in the world. Users from all across the globe buy and sell items on the ecommerce platform every second. From their headquarters in Seattle, Amazon has grown to become a household name.
It’s likely little surprise that the platform’s road to success was paved with deals and offers created solely to benefit its users. Those are still a staple of Amazon today. If you’re looking to save money on the site, here are a few fantastic ways to do so.
Deals of the week.
Trying to shop on a budget? Amazon has got you covered. Every week you’ll find a selection of exciting and affordable new deals to take advantage of. These range from discounts on electrical goods, to money saved on homeware.
Most places have their own form of Black Friday deals, but Amazon’s are a little different. Starting at some time around mid-November, the promotion will often run across two weeks of the month. Just like with any vendor, you can expect to save bundles of cash during this period. Especially on some of the more expensive items on offer.
Amazon discount codes.
There are loads of fantastic discount codes to choose from. These are a great way to save money. All you have to do is copy, write down or remember a simple promotional code.
Some of the best discount codes currently available include the likes of:
- Up to 30% off any purchase
- £20 off your first order over £60 with AmazonFresh
- Save £120 on the 128GB Apple iPhone 7
Make sure to use these before a purchase to make the most of your shopping trip.
Amazon Prime benefits
There are loads of reasons why paying a little extra for Amazon Prime every month is well worth it. From unlimited storage on Amazon Photos, to a Twitch Prime membership, users are treated to a lot.
Let’s take a look at some of the biggest and best membership perks which can be used by customers to make their lives that little bit easier.
- Amazon Prime Day. Held once a year on a changing date (in 2019 it was July 15th), this special occasion offers deals exclusively to Prime customers. Working similarly to Black Friday, the key difference is regular users won’t be able to take advantage of the fantastic offers available. Only Prime members can prosper.
- Prime Videos. Rivaling the popular service which Netflix offers, Prime Video allows members to watch a selection of fantastic programming, all from the comfort of their home. With new shows like The Boys, The Grand Tour and Carnival Row, as well as hundreds of movies, there’s months’ worth of content to keep people hooked.
- Free delivery. A lot of companies offer free standard delivery if you pay a certain amount for your items. With Prime, you get free one-day delivery every time, regardless of other factors. It’s a lifesaver for those times when you need something ASAP.
How to use your Amazon discount code
We’ve already touched on the benefits of using an Amazon discount code when you make a purchase. But how do you use that code?
Step 1) Click on the above code you’d like to use. This will take you through to the product page for that item.
Step 2) Add that, and whatever else you’d like, to your basket. Then proceed to the checkout.
Step 3) Lastly, but most importantly, find the promotional code box at the checkout and enter your code. Then just complete the purchase.
It really is as easy as that. Add your code to a purchase and save money on your next buy.
Q&A with Amazon

10 amazing Amazon ecommerce facts
Do you use Amazon? If so, you make up one of the 310 million active customers who use the e-commerce platform on a daily basis. But how much do you actually know about this industry leader?
Here are 10 random and fascinating facts about the website.
1. The worst 40 minutes in retail history
When the Amazon website went down for a mere 40 minutes in August of 2013, it’s estimated the company could have lost out on as much as $4.72m. That’s using their then-average sale-per-minute valuation of $117,682 every 60 seconds. It’s safe to say having a disaster management plan in place is a must for any business, even a giant like Amazon.
There’s a very particular reason why the A and Z in the company logo are the two which are connected by both points of the trademark “arrow smile”. This is a sign from the business that they’re happy to deliver from “A-to-Z” – anywhere in the world. Clever branding, to say the least.
3. Providing rapid employment growth
Amazon provides a whopping 27,500 jobs to workers in the UK alone. These are split between a number of their different departments. 20,000 of the positions are taken up in fulfilment centres and delivery stations, while the remaining 7,500 are in corporate, web services, and research and design roles.
4. Giving back to the economy
Amazon has given a whopping £9.3bn back to the UK economy since 2010 alone. It just goes to show how despite having their own interests at heart, a large corporation can still have a positive impact on the society around them.
5. The first book
As many people know, Amazon started off as a vendor who only sold books. But do you know what the very first product they ever sold was? The answer is Fluid Concepts & Creative Analogies: Computer Models of Fundamental Mechanisms of Thought. Quite the complex title.
6. Quick growth
Some businesses are slow burners. Amazon by contrast had sold books to all 50 US states and 45 countries by the end of their first month of trading. While that didn’t quite equate to million-dollar-figures, it was this healthy start which set them on their way.
7. From the bottom to the top
Company culture is a major influencing factor in every decision Amazon make. They demonstrate that across all parts of their business. Perhaps most intriguingly is their service desk policy.
Every single member of the team (including CEOs) have to spend at least two days a year working on the desk. The idea is to give everyone, regardless of position, an idea of how important and valuable a good customer service department is.
8. Admired across the world
The e-commerce giants are currently ranked as the second most admired company in the world (according to Fortune), behind only technological powerhouses Apple. They must be doing something right.
9. Seattle, the unofficial home
While Amazon has employees dotted all across the world, as many as 40,000 of them live in Seattle, Washington. To make that stat even more mind-boggling, that means 7.5% of the working age inhabitants of the city are Amazon employees.
10. The fastest UK delivery
According to the Birmingham Mail, the fastest UK delivery was made in a mere 14 minutes and 8 seconds, in Sutton Coldfield. The order was placed on July 11th 2017, and was for an Amazon Echo. Ironic.
