The best way to save money is not to spend it! That said, when I do have to shop for gifts, clothing, office supplies, electronics, toys or other household items, I almost always check Amazon before anywhere else. It is is my favorite store in the whole world. Prime 2 day shipping means I can save myself a trip to the store, and I love being able to sort by price, color, discount, and to read the reviews before I buy.
Amazon.com’s Gold Box is far and above my favorite place for scoring fantastic deals on a huge variety of items, everything from toys to electronics to DVDs. If there is something I want to purchase, particularly a big-ticket item, I will almost always try to wait for a Gold Box lightning deal to come available. Because there are several new deals every day, if I am patient, I can usually get what I am looking for at a huge discount.
And in addition to spectacular deals, Amazon.com now offers a new free prime membership called Amazon Mom, in addition to a 30% discount on diapers and wipes, you can also get free two day shipping on almost everything you buy!
