Hello again, savvy savers! For today’s Wednesday Ways to Save, I want to discuss a recent deal opportunity that I happen to come across! Last evening, while finalizing an order on Amazon, I noticed a new shipping option feature, that when I requested standard shipping, in lieu of the 2-day shipping allotted with Amazon Prime Membership, I was given the option of reviving a free movie credit for going with the extended shipping time frame.
The option read as follows:
About FREE No-Rush Shipping
Choose FREE No-Rush Shipping and we’ll automatically apply a $1 Amazon Instant Video credit to your account once your order ships.
You can use this credit by logging onto the Amazon Instant Video website or going to the Amazon Instant Video app on your smart phone, tablet, TV, or streaming video device. You can rent or buy a movie or TV show from our catalog by clicking Purchase.
Your order with No-Rush Shipping will arrive in 5 – 7 business days. This No-Rush credit expires on October 31, 2014. Terms and Conditions apply.
So by checking the no-rush option, which will presumably have your items shipped via the USPS and not UPS or FedEx, you will be given a $1.00 movie credit, and as many movies and even new releases are $2.99-$3.99, this seems like such a no-brainer for me! Also consider this, many lower ticket items, often arrive within 7-28 business days as is, and so why not enjoy a movie while waiting, per se! Though this option says I would receive my credit once my item ships, my credit arrived within an hour, and was ready for use! Let’s expand on with this idea, why not purchase inexpensive items, such as coin purses, gift bags, and the like for holiday gift giving, or gift closet stock-ups, and receive movie credits!
Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for upcoming deals on The LadyPefers2Save, as I will be keeping this Wednesday Ways To Save deal in mind when posting!
Here’s to saving!
