If you are looking for a way to build up your food stock at home and save some money whilst you do it you will love these tips for grocery shopping on Amazon.
Sign up for Amazon Prime
With Amazon Prime, you get access to free two-day shipping on eligible items, as well as other benefits like streaming of movies and TV shows.

Use Amazon Fresh
Amazon Fresh is a grocery delivery service offered by Amazon that allows you to shop for fresh groceries online and have them delivered directly to your doorstep. You can browse through a wide selection of fresh produce, meat, dairy, pantry staples, and other grocery items, and add them to your cart just like you would in a physical grocery store.
One of the major benefits of using Amazon Fresh is convenience. You can shop for groceries from the comfort of your own home and have them delivered directly to your doorstep, saving you time and effort. You can also choose your preferred delivery date and time, and even get same-day or next-day delivery in eligible areas.
Another advantage of using Amazon Fresh is the quality of the products. Amazon partners with local suppliers and farms to ensure that the products they offer are fresh and high-quality. They also offer a freshness guarantee, which means that if any item you receive is not up to your standards, you can contact customer service and get a refund or replacement.
Additionally, using Amazon Fresh can also help you save money. They offer competitive prices on their products and often have discounts and promotions available. You can also use the subscription service “Subscribe & Save” to save up to 15% on your regular grocery orders.
Create a grocery list
Make a list of the items you need before shopping on Amazon to help you stay focused and avoid buying items you don’t need. Just like when you are shopping at the grocery store going in with a list of the things you need and a menu plan for your family is a great way to save money.
Check the deals section
Amazon often offers deals on grocery items, so be sure to check the deals section for discounts on items you regularly buy. Finding deals on Amazon can be a great way to save money on your purchases. Here are some tips on how to find deals on Amazon:
Use Coupons: Amazon offers coupons on select products, which can be accessed through the product listing or the coupon section of the website. You can clip the coupon to your account and the discount will be applied at checkout.
Subscribe and Save: Amazon’s Subscribe and Save program offers discounts on eligible products when you sign up for recurring deliveries. You can save up to 15% on your orders with this program. I use the Subscribe and Save section to save on all kinds of things for our home. Last month I even got some solar motion-detecting lights for around the chicken coop.
Look for Lightning Deals: Lightning Deals are time-limited discounts offered by Amazon that are available for a short period of time. You can access these deals through the Today’s Deals section or by clicking on the “Upcoming Deals” tab on the homepage.
Visit the Amazon Warehouse Section: Amazon Warehouse is a section of the website that offers discounted and open-box products. These products may have been returned or have damaged packaging, but they are still functional and come with a warranty. You can access this section by clicking on the “Amazon Warehouse” link on the homepage.
Comparing prices on Amazon can help you get the best deal on the product you want to buy. Here are the steps to compare prices on Amazon:
Search for the product you want to buy: Use the search bar on the Amazon homepage to search for the product you want to buy.
Filter the results: Once you’ve searched for the product, you’ll see a list of search results. To compare prices, you can use the filters on the left-hand side of the screen. You can filter by price range, brand, seller, and more.
Sort the results by price: After applying the filters, you can sort the results by price from low to high or high to low. This will show you the products with the lowest or highest price first.
Compare prices of different sellers: Amazon often has multiple sellers offering the same product at different prices. To compare the prices of different sellers, click on the product listing to see the details. Scroll down to the “Other Sellers on Amazon” section to see the prices offered by different sellers. You can compare the prices and choose the one that is the best deal.
Check for shipping costs: When comparing prices, make sure to also check for shipping costs. Some sellers offer free shipping, while others charge for shipping. Be sure to factor in the shipping cost when comparing prices.
Consider Prime benefits: If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you may be eligible for free two-day shipping or other discounts. Make sure to check for any Prime benefits before making your purchase.
Check for bulk options
If you regularly use certain items, buying in bulk can save you money in the long run. While Amazon may not be the place you think of first when shopping in bulk it is a great place to find deals on stuff like snacks and bulk pantry goods. I have gotten some amazing deals on things like entire cases of peanut butter when buying bulk on Amazon. As a large family buying in bulk is by far one of the best things we can do to save.

Look for seasonal items
0Amazon often offers seasonal items like holiday-themed snacks or drinks, so be sure to check for these options after the holiday for some great deals on treats for your family. After all these things are just as good after the holiday and you can save a lot with clearance deals.
