Get automatic reoccurring deliveries with Amazon Subscribe & Save

Buy Things From Amazon Automatically

You’ve ordered from Amazon before right? Probably something cool for yourself, or a gift for someone? Maybe a TV? Amazon has pretty much everything these days. This also includes day to day things like toiletries, food, pet supplies and food, baby wipes and so on. You can take advantage of Amazon’s subscribe & save program to set up reoccurring deliveries for some of these things, and they’ll actually be even cheaper than their already cheap prices! (you need to order at least 5 things per month to unlock the 5 to 15% discount).

For example you can have a 12-pack of toilet paper delivered to you once a month, or 3x 12-packs every 3 months, automatically. You’re probably always going to need toilet paper.
