Let me just take a minute here to say that I am making displeased eyebrows in Amazon’s general direction over some of their recent changes. First it was that you had to wait for your Subscribe & Save orders, even if you had Prime. Then it was all sorts of Prime-eligible items going to “add-on” status, which loosely translates to “Yeah, we decided not to honor the free shipping on this unless you buy more stuff.” Next came the S&S discount dropping to only 5%, unless you buy at least five S&S items. Then it was this grouping-together of Subscribe & Save items, so anything I order today won’t be here for 5 weeks because all of the stuff I ordered last month is shipping this week (finally). Amazon is rapidly becoming a lot less convenient/cheap than it used to be, is my point.
All of that aside, I do still use it for bulk purchases and savings on grocery items I know we’ll eat. (And yes, most of this is stuff you could buy at a similar price at Costco. I do not have a local Costco.) Today’s find: Great prices on Kashi cereals and snacks—items are at least 20% off, and then you save another 5% with Subscribe & Save (if you can wait to get your stuff…), or an additional 20% if you hit the 5-items mark. While I do a lot of baking, I like their cereal bars for grab-n-go snacks that the kids love.
Plus, I just ordered two different flavors, so now I’m 2/5 of the way to that 20% off on my Subscribe & Save shipment for May. Darn you, Amazon.
