I should’ve said this earlier, but in my defense, I hadn’t had coffee yet: Don’t forget that when you’re scoping out the various Amazon Gold Box deals that you should always click through to the product information rather than just going for the “Add to Cart” button. Why? There are often coupons on these items they forget to remove before putting it on Lightning Deal, and if it’s a percentage coupon, so much the better—it calculates based on the price before the deal.
So, for example, I just snapped up this Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Wrinkle Defying Foundation on a Lightning Deal, and there was also an available 30% off coupon. I have never used this before and have no idea if I picked the right shade, but for $2.12 delivered? I don’t really care.
