Summer’s just getting started, but we’re already seeing markdowns to make way for all things fall. By the way, can I just say how ridiculous that is? My furnace kicked on last night. We haven’t even had a legitimate heat wave in Michigan yet! The advantage? We haven’t even had a legitimate heat wave in Michigan yet! It’s coming, so let’s be ready with some very cute summer gear!

Amazon Program Information Refresher
Understanding these Amazon programs can be confusing, so I though it might be nice to break them down a bit for you.
Some items are available through the Subscribe & Save program. What that means is that you select shipments at regular intervals (every 1-6 months) and you’ll receive the item at the 5% discounted price when you subscribe to 4 items or less. Subscribe to 5 or more items, and you’ll receive a 15% discount on each of your subscription items. Additionally, all subscriptions ship free. If you don’t want to bother with regular shipments (the prices do fluctuate), sign up to receive the shipment you want and cancel (with no penalty) when you’ve received your order. You can cancel via the Your Account dropdown menu tab “Your Subscribe & Save Items.” Canceling is very easy to do.
Alternatively, all items can be shipped free with Amazon Prime as well. You can sign up for a free trial membership and cancel before you are charged the annual fee, if you choose.
I am a member of the Amazon Mom program. Starting January 24, 2012, the maximum discount available on any purchase is 20%. This comes from the exclusive discount of 15% on select items (diapers, wipes, etc.) on top of a revised 5% Subscribe and Save discount vs. 15% for other purchased items i.e. grocery, etc. There are often coupons that are stackable with these discounts as well. Also, when you join Amazon Mom, you have the added bonus of Amazon Prime free Two-Day shipping for the first three months continued only by purchasing an Amazon Prime membership after the trial period ($79).
Amazon Student is free for, well, college students by providing a school and major. You get AmazonPrime free shipping for six months and free release date delivery on video games, DVD’s, books and more. You must have a .edu email address to confirm.
