I just found out that one can buy cases of stuff like paper towels on Amazon.com. Does anyone buy paper goods or grocery supplies from them and is it worthwhile? They offered a coupon that you could 'clip' by just clicking on it.

It all depends on the shipping costs.

My son and DIL buy Pampers on Amazon. They belong to Amazon Prime (I think that's what it's called) and so they don't have to pay shipping.

For a lot of items if your total is over I think $49, shipping is free.

Nope... super saver shipping starts at $25, IF the purchase qualifies.

I use the subscribe and save option for several itms that are priced similar or lower than my regular local store. I considered paper towels, but the box my 20 pack Scott's TP comes in is big, the paper towel box must be huge! I also have an Amazon reward cc, so I earn triple points on anything suppled by Amazon, and can redeem points at check out.

Sure a few things might be a buck or two more in some cases, but considering the convenience vs waiting until I both have time to go buy something and remember I need to buy it, totally worth it. I'm too cheap to let much more than that slide though, even on something i only buy 2-3 times a year, so I'm careful about what I opt to buy online.

If you order 5 or more subscribe and save items you get a 15% discount on the order. Delivery for subscribe and save items is always free. Amazon has digital coupons that can be clipped as well. This month my total is $23 for 4 boxes of dishmachine detergent, 48 double rolls of Charmin tp. These all had digital coupons and a 15% discount.
