Amazon Subscribe & Save is a great way to save extra money every month and you don’t have to have a Prime membership to use it. All you have to do is set up regularly scheduled deliveries and earn savings with Subscribe & Save.
Disclosure: Some of the links in this post are affiliate links and if you go through them to make a purchase I will earn a commission. Keep in mind that I link these companies and their products because of their quality and not because of the commission I receive from your purchases.
Unlock extra savings on eligible subscriptions when you subscribe to five or more products at one address on your monthly delivery day. From diapers to toothpaste to dog treats, you can subscribe to thousands of everyday products.
There are so many perks to using Amazon Subscribe & Save over going to the store including:
- Save up to 15% off when receiving 5 or more products in a single month to a single address
- Prime members unlock 20% savings on subscriptions to diapers, baby food and more when receiving 5 or more products in a given month to a single address
- Receive free shipping on thousands of products
- No commitments, obligations, or fees
- Cancel at any time
Not only are the prices cheaper than almost anywhere else, but think about all the money you would save on all those random impulse buys every time you go to the store. Everything that I need is shipped right to my door every month. I’m not going to the store whenever I need something and buying a whole bunch of extra things that weren’t on the list (which always happens).

Also, I never run out of anything! If I notice I’m running low on something I can move it up to my next delivery. Or, if I have enough I can skip that item for a month and it’ll automatically push it to the next month.
In this list I’ve included different things from household essentials, baby & kids, personal care, pantry staples, and pet care.
All the products and brands are what I use just to have for a price comparison but if you prefer something else the price will almost certainly be better than Target or Walmart’s.
While I don’t currently have any pets (besides my kids) my sister has a dog-child so she filled me in on what the best products for the section would be.
Finally, the price comparison is broken down per unit since Amazon, Target, and Walmart all sell different sizes of these products.
It might not seem like a ton of savings at first, but if you think about the frequency which you use these things it can begin to add up really fast.

Below is a screenshot of my Subscribe & Save page so you can see how easy it is to use. First, it gives the date and shipping address of when and where the next package will be delivered.
Then it shows how many more items needed to unlock the 15% (I have six things and you only need five so all the yellow bars are full.) Finally, I can see all the things being delivered and how much they cost.
If you hover over any of the items with your mouse, it would give you the option to edit or skip them.
You can edit an item to change the payment method, change the schedule or quantity, switch to a different product or cancel the subscription. If you choose to skip it’ll just push back a month.
You can also see upcoming months the farther you scroll down and move things up if you need them sooner. It’s so easy once you get used to it.
