10 SHOPPING SECRETS Amazon Doesn’t Want You to Know!

– Today I have 10 insider saving
secrets for amazon.com plus how to score insane secret
clearance deals on their website. Welcome back to the channel
am The Deal Guy Matt Granite. If you like the content that
am about to share with you or you enjoy it while you are watching please give this video a thumbs up, subscribe, turn your notifications on and let me know that you
want more content like this. I just wrapped a series of the top secrets to help you save at Target and Walmart and am looking to learn about more stores. If there is a store that
you wanna save money at got Costco on the way,
many other deal drops, let me know where it is
you wanna save money.

If you are not a prime member, am going to have deals
and ways to actually work the amazone.com website to your advantage. Let's begin first with a
reminder that there are a lot of links that I'm going to
share tied to today's deals. Rather than waste your time
spelling out each of the links as we go through the
top 10 savings secrets. They're all available
on MATTSDAILYDEALS.com I do use affiliate links, which means I benefit monetarily
if you are kind enough to use one of my links and
while I do host programming as an dependent contractor for Amazon. I'm not speaking on behalf of the company, nor are they endorsing anything that I'm going to share with you. In fact, I think this is information Amazon might prefer I
don't share with you. Reminder too, if you want
to become a Prime member, there is a free 30 day trial
to help you out with that. And that link is on MATTSDAILYDEALS.com. Plus, during today's video,
if you watch closely, I'm going to give you
hundreds of clippable coupons that will save you what
could be thousands of dollars over the course of a year.

All of these deals and
all of these coupons are all part of this video that I'm going to share
with you right now. Insider saving secret number
one, there is a page on Amazon, where many of the best
deals happen to be hidden and a lot of you might not
know this page actually exists. There's a special section of amazon.com called bargain fines. And these prices include standard shipping and of course the rates
may differ by destination. But if you've never even
seen a message like this, chances are you haven't seen the page and many of these products
range from $3 to about $20. There's some anomalies
and some good products. This watch on your own exists at 1299. And it's literally
impossible to find a listing for this in stock on Amazon the
main page if you do a search at least at the time
that I'm recording this, there's deals for all sorts of people. Throughout this video, I'm gonna show you how to save money on all types of things, how to find hidden coupons, and of course, some really good deals but just as an example
on another $13 deal, on the bargain fines page,
this two outlet wall mount with the dual USB charge ports is 1299.

When I go to the main section of Amazon, I'm seeing this for 35% higher, so just throwing that
out there as something that you might need to know
as a great way to save money, even a decently rated $2 and 98 cent pair of in ear wired earbuds. If you find yourselves traveling or if you don't have
a Bluetooth connection or you're doing a lot of Skype or zoom and you just want to hard
wire into the computer.

This $2 and 98 cent
deal with free shipping would be another example as
my savings secret number one. Insider saving secret number two, and I feel like an idiot every time I just keep going like this, but I don't have fancy graphics coz this is a frugal YouTube channel, the saving secret number two
is tied to the trading page. Now some of you know,
you can actually trade in pre existing devices where Amazon will handle the return
shipping to them for free. And then you'll get that credit
toward an additional device. But what you might not know is
they actually run promotions on a special version of the trading page. So for example, if you were to
trade in a select cell phone, you'll get a bonus on an Amazon gift card. If you were to trade in an old E-reader, you get 20% off a new Kindle E-reader and that's on top getting
cash back for the E-reader you're already trading in.

If you have an old fire tablet, you could trade that in fire TV devices. Like if you have an old fire TV stick, you want to trade that
in again, huge savings. You can also get an Amazon gift card plus 25% off a new echo device. And just to show you how
the trading process works, it's actually seamless you select what it is you wanna trade in In this example, I have a
first generation old used blink indoor home security system, you answer a few questions about it. And not only am I getting 50 bucks back for trading in my new system, but I could get an additional discount off of the second generation if I choose to buy it for
that respective product line.

So you might be thinking,
well, it's 50 bucks, I paid more at the time Hey, it's more money back in
your pocket where it belongs. Savings secret number three,
bookmark the sales section of the Amazon warehouse page. I'm sure many of you guys
know that there are plenty of gold box deals that have
a wide range of discounts. Some of them are good, some
of them are not fully worth your while at all times. And some of the products
that end up in the gold box and today's deal section
or listings that are dead.

It's not a great way to sort deals, especially this product, but you'll likely note the
Amazon warehouse section is better organized and also
has deals that are in stock. So for the warehouse products,
not all of these are used. Some of these are products
that have just been repackaged. Sometimes if something
shipping to you at your home from point A to point B, and the box is deemed to be damaged, which might mean scuffed up might be in a dent in the package. Amazon then receives that on
the back end repackages it and sends it back out as a
renewal warehouse product. And that's what we're looking
at for some of these deals. So if we were to look right now there's a select number of deals. But something like this Bissell or even this Eufy Anker Robo vac right now is selling for $147 versus
what could be 230 or more if you were to purchase
this product as brand new, and again, all of these
prices that I'm showing you will differ depending on
when you're watching this and what's on sale at Amazon
at that particular time.

But this is a 50% off deal right now on a very well rated
vacuum as you can see, and a number one best seller. So that is interesting to note. And one of the reasons
you may wanna bookmark that warehouse deal section I'm gonna give you a saving secret edition right here a bit of a bonus. Once you're in the warehouse section pay attention to the Woot deals you guys remember Woot used
to be a daily deal website and then Amazon purchased Woot. And now there are all sorts of daily deals that run on the website. A lot of these are
refurbished and used products but it's worth a look for example on this ifive MacBook Pro,
there are some great savings on this specific product if
you were to log on right now and you're gonna find different products that are brand new as
well and worth your while. For example, this UV clean
phone sanitizer is 49 bucks. I actually have a deal
for a phone sanitizer that I much prefer on MATTSDAILYDEALS.com but just as an example that's there, some of the deals are good, some aren't.

This bamboo four piece luxury
Sheet Set brand new 17 to $23 is good if you want higher end sheets that might not be your pick. And just as an example
on MATTSDAILYDEALS.com. I think I found a sheet set at $100 off. It depends what you're looking for. But of course that would be
a good thing to keep in mind. Ours is part of the Amazon's
brand new renewed program and the deals in this section primarily tied to electronics and desktops are the most aggressive of
anything that I've ever seen. Now I am completely not in favor of just buying a renewed
refurbished product from anyone. In fact for a lot of
those daily deal websites, you see there's no accountability if something goes wrong with the product. The reason I like Apple
refurbished products when you buy directly from
Apple and renewed products that you buy directly from Amazon, is there's an additional Guarantee.

If you look right now
this is an amazing deal. This is a desktop computer
with an Intel Core Quad processor, an ifive 16 gigs of RAM, which is absolutely insane. And a brand new 480 gig solid state drive for $229 and 54% off guys, that is one of
the best desktop deals. I had one last week that I featured from the Amazon renewed section as well, which was 150 and almost
loaded up as well as this but why am I showing you the section well all of the products from
the Amazon renewed section and a reminder, I've bookmarked all of these sections
on MATTSDAILYDEALS.com. Is a product that is backed
by an additional 90 day Amazon renewed guarantee. The product has been
professionally tested, it's inspected and it's tested
by Amazon qualified suppliers to ensure that it looks
like new and performs well. On certain products, it's actually better to buy it renewed because your typical return window for an
Amazon purchase is 30 days.

When you buy an Amazon renewed product, even if it's just been repackaged, you're getting it 90 days if
anything goes wrong with it. And that's actually better
and working to your advantage as a consumer and hey,
it could score you a deal on something like a
brand new iPhone again, you're saving $80 right now for something that's fully unlocked that you could take advantage of and score that additional
90 day renewed guarantee. Now I realize many products
have manufacturer warranties, but these days with everything going on. It's not that easy to
call up the manufacturer and get the service and
get everything scheduled sometimes just going back to the place at which you purchased the product from like
Amazon is a great way to go.

So these renewed products
really something to consider Insider saving secret number five is you absolutely do not
need to be a Prime member. If your main reason for using that Prime membership is free shipping. Lot of people don't know this, but the average shipping
time for a non prime product is between five and eight days. If you spend over $25 most products on Amazon will
ship completely for free. And if you are shopping for
something that's available from a third party and
fulfilled by that third party, you often just get free shipping so the Prime membership may
not be worth your while. And with that being said if
you're not using prime video and some of the other benefits, which I'll discuss in a few moments, getting anything into your shopping cart and bundling together so it's
over $25 will get you shipping within that five to eight day window. And at least at the time that
I'm recording this video, there are widespread delays based on what's going on with Amazon shipping times and that Prime one to
two day free shipping doesn't really hold true at
least right now in my community and with many zip codes with
which I've tested this again, everything's different, not
speaking on behalf of Amazon shipping times, just on
behalf of personal experience.

Saving secret number six, I'm sure you guys might have noticed that you can't use
manufacturer coupons at Amazon, you can't just submit
them to customer service and have them apply to an order. But did you know there are coupons galore all waiting for you in not so
obvious section of amazon.com. I'm not going to call
this a secret section. But I am going to say the
vast majority of people do not know to click this they don't know the link exists. And they don't know that
you can actually score all sorts of coupons
that you can then apply to future purchases. Well, I realize $1 off here $1 there might not get you overly excited and I realized I have no
life and very few friends except for the amazing
subscribers of this channel.

You're not going to
believe some of the coupons that I'm going to show you right now all located in this section. So it does tell you that
you can save up to 35% off of Amazon coupons and yeah $1 here might
not get you that excited and it's probably something
you've seen before. But let's use headphones as an example and you're not going to believe some of the coupons I show you. So on this first pair of headphones, you're saving an extra 20% off
when you apply this coupon. This is a big deal and this will add up relatively quickly for you and another pair of headphones
just as an example 20% off Why would you pay $39 and 99 cents for this very well
rated pair of headphones when you can save an additional 20% How about this pair of earbuds $10 guys when you apply the coupon it's all about knowing these coupons exist and one of my main missions is to make sure you always get your coupon so a reminder everything is linked for you MATTSDAILYDEALS.com.

You can join my email
newsletter click the coupons but whatever it is, just make sure you're using a coupon when you shop. This information I bookmark for you. Insider saving secret number seven, know the source of your
products to get the best deal. So I wanna give you an example. Not everything you see on Amazon is of course at its lowest price. And if you look very carefully when you are shopping for a product, it usually comes from another brand. And these brands sometimes
have their own websites, where you can save even more money if you go directly to their websites.

So let's use this cooling
pillow as an example, If you look very closely at the listing, you're getting a two pack of
well rated cooling pillows in the small size. I know it's very confusing. It's a smaller, actual large,
but it's actually small, you're getting two small
pillows for 79 bucks. Well if you want two extra
large pillows for 9998 which is likely the better value. If you went directly to the merchant, you would have saved yourself
a little bit of money or at least got something better and if that examples
not clear enough to you, let's use this, there's a hose right here which is an expandable 50 foot hose highly in demand right now.

This same hose which is
$39 and 99 cents on Amazon is actually available online from the merchant directly for 29 bucks. If you look at my website, MATTSDAILYDEALS.com and you scroll through all of the deals
that I have featured recently I actually hunted this down at a cheaper price $29 and 99 cents versus the $10 more you would spend on Amazon. Why? Well, it's not that
Amazon's out to hurt you. But they do have credit
card processing fees and different fees that are
passed along to the merchant and in that case, many merchants will actually jack up
their prices on Amazon, even if they're on sale just
to cover their operating costs. Savings secret number
eight, know your rights. If you're a Prime member, you are paying for a promise that you're going to get most products within a specific window of time. And if you're not getting your products within two to three days or five days or whatever break you
wanna cut to the people in your community which is totally fine and I support that.

You still are promised
some type of shipping time and many of the products these days that I've been ordering
are sometimes getting lost. As you can see from this and at other times and waiting three weeks for something that was a prime product that was supposed to arrive
in three to five days contact amazon customer service and ask for a credit for that month, your prime membership cost
you around 13 bucks a month. You shouldn't be paying for something you're not getting back as a service. So ask for credit. Those are your rights
amazon customer service I have found is very receptive to providing those breaks to people. Just make sure you advocate for yourself. Saving secret number nine, there are discounts available on the Prime membership program. If you are a student or
you have a Medicaid card, you can save a lot on prime 50% off per month with
a qualified EBT card. And if you're a student, you
get a six month trial for free after that print student resumes at $6 and 49 cents per month. That is an amazing deal on
the Amazon Prime membership. And what you might not know is
there's actually other plans available so for example, If you are not a student and
you don't have a Medicaid card prime manual is 119 per year at the time I'm recording this which gives you prime video
ad free music streaming, unlimited photo storage, unlimited reading and various other things
which we'll talk about.

And again, if you want to
use a free 30 day trial, there is a link MATTSDAILYDEALS.com. If you are a monthly member, you spend actually a little bit more than on the annual membership commitment and if you simply just want to
use the prime video service, it's $8 and 99 cents per month, which puts it on par or better
value compared to Netflix. But again, you have to like
the catalog of programming and that's different per person watching In fact if you guys are watching right now Do you love prime video? Do you use it? Are you more of a Netflix person? Let me know about that as I make my way through
saving secret number 10.

This is all tied to whether or
not you actually need prime. In the math that I've done, If you buy more than three
items per month from Amazon and those are your shopping habits. You are 100% the perfect person to use that Prime membership because all of the benefits over time, especially for larger scale deliveries, and the discounts passed along to you, generally at least allow
your prime membership to pay for itself plus
a few other bonuses. And the reason I'm telling
you that is for example, if you shop for food, your grocery savings are huge as a Prime member. If you have a growing family, the Amazon family
discounts of 20% on diapers and baby food subscriptions,
make it worth it. And there are exclusive deals for you. In addition to deals
which become available as early access deals to Prime members. The daily deals and early access to some of the most popular products, especially around
occasions like Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and Prime Day are all tied to your prime membership and crazy things like
if you're a Prime member and you place an order through your Echo, there's sometimes additional
savings that you can unlock.

And these are all topics
upon which I focus throughout the year but insider
savings for Prime members might make it worth your while. And if you do have a growing family or in my case, I'm a proud
father of a two year old. Before my two year old
got to being a toddler rather than a baby, the
baby registry on Amazon gives tons of discounts to family members, the free welcome boxes up
to $35 worth of products. And then just for completing a registry, you get a discount on items
that are left in your registry. If people don't buy it, plus Prime members
receive 15% off on that.

And these startup costs
for a growing family are a lot of money. There are similar incentives
in place at Walmart. And of course, I've covered all of the shopping secrets for Walmart, including how to read their price tags and what you need to know and what not to buy from
them in another upload. If there was another store
that you want me to cover, please leave me a comment. And if you've watched
this and you're wondering, should you cancel your prime membership? What are the hidden perks
of your prime membership these are also all topics that
I've covered on this channel if you like what you saw, thumbs up to me will be so helpful. And thank you again for subscribing with your notifications turned on. I love you guys for watching. Have a great rest of your week..
