I was low on deodorant and needed some more. I wasn’t out. But, not knowing when I’d make it to the store, I hopped on Amazon to see if they had my brand. They did and they had a four pack of my brand at less than what I pay per unit at Kroger. Then, I saw this “subscribe and save” thing because deodorant is a frequently purchased product. I clicked on it. If you commit to buying the product at regular intervals, you get 15% off and free shipping. So, every couple of months, four pack of deodorant shows up at my place.

I’m pretty sure this will change my life. I love technology.

    Be cautious when you sign up for the subscribe and save option. They don’t mention the fact that your price is not locked in when you first sign up – it can and will fluctuate.

    I believe they email you before your next shipment is ready, so you can approve or cancel at that time if the price has changed.

    I use a different brand of deodorant every stick. I cut coupons and buy what I get the best deal on.

    Spending your resources to support you gathering more: Sounds like duties for the wife…

    You should have been making bbq sauce, shooting in your back yard, or throwing trash in the street instead.

    I buy all that stuff from Amazon, it saves a ton of money.

    I’m certain those near and dear to you appreciate your effort in this matter! (tee hee)

    I’ve done something similar with a particular brand of bar soap – difficult to find at the stores, cheaper on line. AND, in bulk.

    I bought a fancy cat box that uses cartridges, one a month. I have a subscription to send me a six-pack of trays every six months. It’s great.

    Been using Amazon subscribe-and-save for years; almost everything I get is substantially cheaper that way than at a local store, unless I clip coupons and shop sales, which is a hassle. And, even if it’s a few percent more – Adam is right, prices will fluctuate some – having it automatically appear on the doorstep saves me a huge amount of time which, as we all know, is money.

    Listen closely son, take either your left or right hand and put it in your pocket, now feel a little left or right (depends which hand you used) got that ? Good, if you feel something that is hanging lower that the one eyed monster this is good. Now remove your hand and tell your wife that you need some more of that stink good.

    Funny how there are a couple of folks in this thread that are just setting the proprietor up for a butt whoopin’ by trying some of their “strategies” šŸ™‚

  10. Very cool. Been planning to move out of Dallas for some farm land. I plan to compare prices but this might save me some extra trips.
