We have to confess that Amazon is the first place we look when we're looking for a bargain. Competition has increased from retailers like Walmart, Target, and especially Best Buy. Yet
somehow, Amazon is still king in the online world of shopping. As deal finders, we tend to keep a close on what's going on there so that we can pass great deals on to our shoppers. But we're shoppers too, and saving money still excites us, and that's probably the biggest reason we're always keeping an eye on what's going on at Amazon.
With a whole new generation of Kindles on the market, we were wondering how the company might make money on the whole Kindle craze. Jeff Bezos has given more than a few hints that downloads are key to their strategy in this regard. In other words, they make their money on entertainment. In spite of this, there are still plenty of books available to download for free. The Kindle Fire HD is a "steal" at $199, because of it's versatility and quality. We have seen it on sale for $20 off already a few times this year, and hope to see it drop even further. Like everyone else, I suppose we'll wait and see.
We still think an Amazon Prime membership is one of the best bargains in the world of digital entertainment. For a current price of $79, you get a full year of benefits. These include tons of movies and TV shows you can stream at Amazon Instant Movies at no additional charge. My favorite benefit is two day shipping on many items is included, and there is no minimum to get it.
This can be a big advantage when you're picking up an item that goes for less than their usual $25 shipping threshold.
The coupon deals of late have been a real revelation. Some of the more exceptional deals we've featured on our site include a two pack of Pantene that typically goes for about $9 at the
grocery store for just $3.55 shipped to your door, and 16 double rolls of Charmin Basic for $7.34 with free shipping. Barilla pasta has also been in the coupon section, with very low prices and free shipping, as have Oral-B products, Scott Towels, Dove products, Gain detergent, and hundreds more brands that you'll recognize. But they do more than discount food and beauty products, of course. We've also seen unbeatable prices on brand name electric shavers very cheap thanks to a coupon. The good news is there's nothing to cut. An item with a coupon discount will show as such, provided you are signed in to your Amazon account, and all you need to do to use it is "clip the coupon" by clicking on the icon beneath the item picture.
If you enjoy your television the TV Deal of the Week has been excellent lately. Amazon has featured popular shows like Smallville, Rome, Game of Thrones, The Wire, Boardwalk Empire and many more at sizable discounts, most in fact, at the best price on the web at the time of
posting. Many of the best deals we've seen on popular programs on DVD and Blu-Ray have been at Amazon over the past few months.
Amazon has the world's most anticipated gaming systems available for pre-order.
($99), you'll get 17 weeks of NFL Sunday Ticket for free. If you call Direct TV and ask how much it will cost you to get the NFL service alone, you may hurt yourself from the shock. Trust us, it's in the hundreds. We have no idea how long this deal will continue to be available, so you might want to take advantage if you're interested.
There's always something new going on at Amazon. Keep us bookmarked and we'll keep you informed.
