This is the first Amazon Prime Day Deal I’ve felt deserved its own post. While some gift card deals sparkle, most of the “stuff” deals fizzled. (Ok, I do like the $29.99 Kindle Fires for kids.) Maybe I’m just more picky this year about what I’ll blog?
What makes The new Amazon sample boxes post-worthy?
Some background: Amazon offered sample boxes over the past year and have just refreshed the stock. Each one of the Amazon sample boxes contains at least eight samples and the prices range from $4.99-$19.99.
The best box is a luxury beauty box that is chock full of travel size goodies. The luxury beauty box includes 20 (!) high end samples from brands such as Calvin Klein, Vichy, Juice Beauty and many others.
The best part: if you’re a Prime member chose one or all of seventeen boxes and get the purchase price back on a future amazon purchase. I’ve bought fifteen of the seventeen Amazon sample boxes (have received eleven) and have been happy with all of them.
At $19.99, the luxury beauty box is a deal. At $19.99 with a $19.99 credit? Say it with me: No. Brainer.
Now do be aware the credits are limited to the category of the box you buy: the beauty credit is good on a beauty purchase, etc. However the credit does NOT have to be used on the specific items you get in the box. For instance, the household box credit can be used on a list of 983 items. To see what you can buy, click on the link under the box that says “learn more”. You’ll then be directed to a list of the items you can use the credit on. The number of items varies from 32 (men’s grooming) to 66,850 (sports nutrition).
You also need to remember to use the credits or they will expire. Fortunately, you can check the sample boxes page and Amazon will tell you which ones you haven’t spent yet. I went on today and found six!
Not a prime member yet? Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trials are an easy way to get in on the swag.
