It’s back-to-school season! Whether your kids are heading back in the coming weeks or already returned to the classroom, you might find yourself needing to buy more supplies, snacks, clothing, or other items for them this time of year.
Amazon is a one-stop destination for back-to-school shopping. From everyday supplies, to the most-wanted fashion, to the latest tech, there’s something for every kid and college student. And since Prime helps members get the most out of Amazon, you can save big this back-to-school season when you shop with a Prime membership.
Here are just a few ways to save as a Prime member:
Prime members enjoy fast, free delivery on tens of millions of items across the site. So whether you’re shopping for school supplies like backpacks, art supplies, or dorm décor, you can expect the items you order to arrive fast, saving you both money and countless last-minute trips to the store.
2.Digital books, audiobooks, and magazines at no additional cost
If heading back to school means more reading for your kids, you might be happy to know that a Prime membership gives you access to Amazon First Reads, which lets you download a newly released book for free every month. Plus, Prime Reading lets you borrow 10 titles at a time from a collection of thousands of digital books, audiobooks, and magazines. The options change frequently, so check out what’s available now.
3.Eligible Prime members earn 5% back on Amazon.com purchases
With the Prime Visa, a no fee card, cardmembers earn 5% back on Amazon and Whole Foods Market purchases. Prime Visa cardmembers also earn 2% back on local transit and commuting, including rideshare, as well as restaurants and gas stations, and earn 1% back on all other purchases—all on top of the savings, convenience, and entertainment that comes with Prime in one, single membership. And with the Prime Card Bonus, eligible Prime cardmembers earn 10% back or more on a rotating selection of items and categories on Amazon. With the all the supplies and groceries you’ll likely be needing this time of year (and beyond), this could add up to a significant savings.
4.Subscribe and save
As your kids head back to school, there may be items you’ll need to replenish regularly in the coming months (think lunchbox snacks and art supplies). Subscribe & Save helps customers save money on regularly scheduled deliveries. While you don’t need a Prime membership to use Subscribe & Save or to take advantage of the program’s free delivery, Prime saves members money every day.
5.Buy with Prime
