Amazon – How to Apply Promo Codes

I am not referring to the coupons that you search on Amazon.com or Google by typing ‘Amazon coupon”. That’s one way to get coupons and discounts on Amazon. I am referring to promo codes offered by brands who sell on Amazon, which give customers a discount on eligible products found on this page at checkout. 

Got questions on how to apply the promo codes to the products found on Shop with Amazon Promo Codes Page?

How to Shop with Amazon promo codes 

Promo codes are usually a combination of letters and numbers. The product information will either specify a ‘promo code for you to enter at checkout‘ or to make it easier, the link automatically adds the promo code to your cart at checkout and done! No need to copy and paste the code to your cart.

Most promo codes are single use, meaning that it can only be applied to one product. So if you want to buy 2 of the same product, you’ll have to apply a different code for it at checkout. With multi-used codes however, you can buy as many of the same product as you’d like using the same code.

Here is what it looks like: In this example, you’re given a text link

Once you click on the link, the items eligible for the discount appear. These may include different colors or sizes. In the example below, the code works for only one product.

If you wish to purchase the product, add it to your cart.  Note: the subtotal will not reflect the discount price. The total discounted price will be listed before you place your order. This is confusing though, because the subtotal does not reflect the discount, and it seems as though the savings aren’t applied. The picture below shows you what I mean. Don’t worry, you’ll see the savings after you click “proceed to checkout”.

Where is the promo code to enter at check out?

When you click “proceed to checkout”, the code will be automatically added to your cart and discounted at checkout. In the image above, the product is added to checkout but it doesn’t reflect the discount. However, as I discussed before, there’s no need to copy and paste the code. That’s time consuming.  Instead it is automatically added, and you’ll see the discounted price when you place the order. This is what it looks like:

You can see the promo code as well as any other savings applied before you place your order. In this example, there was a coupon in addition to the promo code, which was applied automatically bringing down the order total. 

How to enter the promo code manually:

Sometimes, I will include just the promo code. Here is an example:

In this case, you just enter the provided code at checkout to get the discount. To view more details and or shop for this product just click on the image.

Absolutely! In addition to the promo code, sometimes there may be an additional coupon which you can clip to add at checkout. In the picture above, there was an additional coupon which was applied at checkout. Double savings!
