Subscribe and Save

You may or may not have noticed that Amazon added a subscription capability a few months back. It isn't available on all things (who needs a monthly Britney Spears delivery?), but most consumables can be subscribed to. Things like cleaner, diapers, and cereal are all available.

It's a good deal too. You save 15% off the price by subscribing. The odd thing is, you can cancel at any time, so it seems like you could subscribe to a single shipment just to get 15% off. Maybe someone can find the small print that says you can't do that. Anyway, here's a nice example of the money you can save with Amazon subscriptions. It's really nice that super saver shipping continues to apply.

I continue to be amazed at how Amazon stays viable doing stuff like this.

I was very happy to hear they were even doing this, and they provide me a discount on top of it? Bizarre, and it makes my wallet very happy.

I'm guessing at least for the time being, this could be used as a little loophole to get 15% off anything. That was how their Prime shipping program started off too. I'm sure eventually they will either remove the discount or find a way to force you to use it as a subscription.
