Subscribe & Save Not Working? How to troubleshoot Subscribe & Save issues

Subscribe & Save seems to be expanding and changing constantly so I’ve decided to post some of the most frequently asked questions when it comes to troubleshooting Subscribe & Save issues.

It isn’t letting me Subscribe & Save, it is only letting me order immediately even if I order it under the subscribe & save menu?

Gosh, this one got me a couple of times too! Below the Subscribe & Save discount pill but above the yellow button you’ll notice a “First delivery on ” text followed by a date then a “change” link. Click that “change” link and back it back to your Subscribe & Save preference.

What is amazon Subscribe and Save?

Amazon Subscribe and Save is a service offered by Amazon that allows customers to subscribe to regularly scheduled deliveries of products they use frequently, such as household supplies, personal care items, pet food, and groceries.

Customers can choose from thousands of eligible products, select a delivery frequency (monthly, bi-monthly, etc.), and receive a discount on the regular price. The discount varies by product and subscription frequency but can range from 5% to 15% off the regular price.

The service is convenient for customers who want to ensure they always have certain products on hand without the hassle of reordering every time they run out. Customers can also modify their subscriptions at any time, skip a delivery, or cancel altogether.

Amazon Subscribe and Save can be a cost-effective way to purchase items you use regularly and save time by not having to constantly re-order.

Is Amazon Subscribe and Save only for Prime members?

No, Amazon Subscribe and Save is not only for Prime members, but Prime members do get additional benefits. Non-Prime members can also use the service and receive a discount on the regular price of eligible products. However, Prime members receive a higher discount of up to 20% off the regular price for certain products, and they may also have access to exclusive deals and early access to select products. Additionally, Prime members receive free shipping on their Subscribe and Save orders, while non-Prime members must meet a minimum purchase threshold to receive free shipping.

Prime Early Access Sale — October 11th and 12th

So Amazon is inventing more shopping holidays for themselves again!

Why? To help us save more after that crazy inflation? To get a start on the holidays? To get rid of excess inventory before the real holiday shipments come in?

Regardless, I am never one to turn down a good sale. 🙂 October 11th and 12th Amazon will have a Prime Early Access sale.

Keep it tuned here as we’ll be updating all the deals and discounts and trying to come up with a nice format for you to browse the best of everything in the sale. As with most Amazon holiday sale announcements you can find lots of nice deals on Amazon devices here.

Amazon Prime Day will be July 15 & 16

Amazon Prime Day will be July 15 & 16

Amazon is sure getting good at stretching a day. Every year we have “Black Friday Deals Week” and “Cyber Monday Deals Week” so why should “Prime Day” only be a day? Here’s hoping they’re not watering this once glorious holiday down because we’ve seen some good deals each Prime Day, I just feel like the discounts are less impressive every year.

Yes, I speak my mind on this website, I don’t hawk just any crap I don’t believe in like other sites do. 🙂

With that said here’s some of the highlights from Amazon’s Press release:

Amazon Prime Day will be July 15 & 16

Amazon Prime Day will be July 15 & 16

Then there’s a bunch of “Prime Day Product Launches” which look like a bunch of overpriced brands I’ve never heard of likely peddling snake oil. So not much confidence there… Just because a product goes to market doesn’t mean it’s a deal and certainly without any product reviews how do you even know what you’re really getting…?

Yeah, so uh, so far there’s not a whole lot to write home about…

Check for yourself and feel free to disagree with me.

Why You May Be Unsubscribed from the Mailing Lists at the End of the Month

Why You May Be Unsubscribed from the Mailing Lists at the End of the Month

I hate ads. You can probably tell. There’s none of that garbage clogging up this website. In the same venue of thought, I pay to remove ads from the mailing list service because I can’t bare the thought of you guys getting flashy ad banners in a service being provided to you from me. So to remove ads, I pay for the mailing list service.

Every 2 months or so I clear out subscribers who haven’t opened ANY of the emails sent from that mailing list in the previous 2 months. That makes sure I won’t be paying for robots and subscribers who never even open the emails that get sent. It also ensures that if you’re one of those people who signs up for stuff and becomes too lazy to unsubscribe when it isn’t used that the emails aren’t continually bothering you. Win – win!

Integrity means a lot to me here and I want to make sure everyone is happy. And if you want to stay on the mailing list, make sure you’re opening those emails. 😉

Friendly Ordering Reminders and FAQs for New Readers

Friendly Ordering Reminder for New Readers

I am so super grateful for everyone who visited and shared links to this site over Amazon’s Prime Day(s?). It makes me so happy that I get to upkeep a website that everyone seems to enjoy. The traffic this year almost broke my server! 😀 I’ll need to upgrade before Black Friday – that’s for sure!

I got a lot of questions on Facebook and I couldn’t respond to everyone because I was so busy, not just in posting deals, but in my personal life. I was on a flight from London when Prime Day began, plus I start a new job next Monday!

I thought I would take the time here to post any answers to questions that came up and of course if you have any more questions you can scroll down and comment or even comment on Facebook and I will update the post.

Friendly Ordering Reminder for New Readers

“The coupons aren’t working for me!”

This was the biggest complaint and of course I understand. Many readers were getting things for free left and right because in this post I listed all coupon deals you can stack multiple coupons with. They worked for some readers and not for others.

As a reminder, I don’t work for Amazon and as such I don’t know what makes people eligilble for the coupons, but there’s a bunch of stuff you can do so that next time I make a post with a bunch of free diapers and baby wipes you’ll have better luck.

Make sure you’re the Primary Prime Member – This means that you’re the family member who pays for the Amazon Prime subscription. I understand that many families share a subscription to cut costs, but trust me Amazon sees the account that pays for the subscription as where to advertise their discounts to most as they control whether the other users on the Prime Account have access.

Make sure you’re signed up for Amazon Family – Back in the day it used to be called “Amazon Mom”, which I hated because I knew of quite a few single Dads who were signed up for it. Basically it’s FREE for Prime Members and gives you access to extra family oriented discounts such as coupons for diapers and wipes… 🙂 I don’t have kids myself, but having access to the Amazon Family discounts helped me find all those FREE deals. 😀

Sign up for an Amazon Baby Registry – I am serious when I say Amazon must think I continually pop them out. I sign up for a baby registry at least once a year and I get access to extra discounts that I can even stack with Amazon Family discounts. This again is FREE and I always have one. I have a baby shower to go to about once every 4 months so I manage to get some quality baby stuff on the cheap! I have a wedding registry too, but those discounts are geared more towards jewelry and TVs. Yes, you can make both private so no one knows. 😉

Sometimes the coupons make be geographically based or only for Prime Members who have spent X amount on Y. These are things you can’t always control so they’re not worth worrying about.

“I was charged tax so it isn’t free!”

Oh my gosh, I know right? 🙁 I live in California which is probably the most heavily taxed state. I would have managed to get so many more free diapers if I lived in a tax free state but for $5/box for something I was going donate made me only score a few.

Many people all over America visit this site every year and some states tax a lot, some states have no sales tax – you’re lucky if you live there! Since there are individual tax rates everywhere I never list taxes in prices. Mostly people expect to get taxed at checkout already so this isn’t something I ever mention.

As for why Amazon still feels the need to tax free products, I am sure it was a change to the law in the past year. I’m not a CPA so I don’t know why this change was made, but if you are a CPA I’d love to hear your input if you have any knowledge.

If you have any questions you can visit Amazon’s sales tax page.

My Subscribe & Save page isn’t showing the prices I agreed to pay at checkout when I used an instant coupon! How do I know what they will actually bill me? This is a common problem because the Amazon S&S page isn’t correctly engineered to show you all the discounts you’re getting. In the above image, these subscriptions which will ship to me in a few days are not taking into account the coupon discount that I used at checkout.

Amazon's BEST Subscribe & Save Deals

If I go to the Amazon Orders page and find the order I made for those makeup removing wipes I can see that my final price will be ONLY $3.15 after the $1.50 coupon and subscribe & save. You will NEVER pay more than what you agree to at checkout for your first subscription!

Just a quick note regarding the FREE Honest Company Diapers

“Will the orders actually ship?!”

This question is difficult to answer because I heard from one reader that they cancelled some of the diapers because she was able to order more than the order limit was set to. However another reader ordered a WHOPPING 160 boxes of diapers which she plans to donate locally.

One thing you can do to make sure your subscribe & save items ship right away is to change your S&S delivery date here so you get them as fast as possible before Amazon is able to cancel.

Anymore questions? 🙂 Let me know! I am friendly and happy to answer what I can or point you to where you can get answers.
