Disclosure: I partnered with Groupon on this post. All opinions are my own.
Amazon has made shopping much more convenient, right? I jumped on the bandwagon to get the Student Prime shipping discount a few years ago. However, I often wonder … Is Amazon saving me money or am I spending more since it is so easy to order? The answer is not clear and I need to do more research on this — haha.
Either way, Amazon Student Prime or Prime, members get 2nd day shipping for the year (at a flat cost).
This last year I used it many times. It came in handy while I was on medical leave. And of course, while I was out with the flu — it made shopping for household goods that much easier.
Out of flu medicine? No problem. Need Kleenex tissues and cough drops? Easy, peasy. In some cases, items can be delivered as soon as the next day.
The only down side is Amazon does not run many promotions. Yet, if you search through Groupon’s Amazon page, it is easy to find any and all offers they are promoting.
Don’t have Amazon Prime? Don’t worry. There are even offers for free shipping listed on the Groupon page. Check it out!
