A Little Info About Amazon.com

Long before I was into couponing and deal-finding, I was ordering from Amazon.com. I've had great luck in ordering from them for years now.

Just within the last few years, they started their "Today Only" deal and random daily "Lightning Deals." You can view them HERE. These are great ways to save money and get some great gifts for the holidays. But you have to be *quick!* The lightning deals sell out so fast sometimes that I can't even get the posting written! So I won't be able to keep you updated on them.

If you happen to be on my blog, you can view the Amazon box in my right sidebar to scroll through the best deals of the day and to see what's the latest lightning deal. And if you have gamers on your list, always check Amazon on Friday, as they tend to do lightning deals on them then (but not always!)

For those of you that have earned SwagBucks Gift Cards for Amazon, did you know you can have these loaded and ready to go? Yup, I just learned this recently! If you go to Amazon and go under Your Account (listed on the right side), under Payments, you'll see it list "Apply a Gift Certificate/Card to Your Account." This is where you can put in your codes so they are ready to be used to snag these hot deals.

Also, Amazon.com has a 4 for 3 Promotion on Select Books, Single Copy Magazines, and Home & Garden items. So keep your eyes open for items that qualify. I get a lot of my kitchen gadgets here as I can usually get a 4th for FREE. Sometimes, I'll mix the kitchen gadgets with children's books and use some for gifts.

I just thought I'd share these things with you so you can keep your eyes open for some *hot* deals and be ready when you find one!
