The last year has been miserable for most. Everyone in the west was suddenly finding themselves trapped indoors for undetermined periods. The economy wavered and bent in on itself, and millions of us were kept separate from our families, with an arm-length list of things we want to do when we get out.
There has been one big store, however, that has done well amid all this misery. It isn’t that they are making money off our sadness, but instead that they were exceptionally well placed at the beginning of all this to earn the right-place-right-time custom of many nations.
We are, of course, talking about Amazon. Let’s forget the politics for a moment, though, and talk about how to get money off when we shop with this multinational online retail store.
Amazon: who are they, and what do they sell?
We have probably all heard about Amazon, but before we talk about the Amazon discounts, we want to talk about who they are and what they do. Amazon was started back in 1994 and made a bit of a buzz as the first official business to exist without buildings. The whole idea of Amazon was that buyers and sellers could put things online to shift them. They needed no bricks and mortar buildings, and back then, this was unheard of.
Amazon sells everything. They do their white-label range of goods too, but that wasn’t always the case. Back in the formative years, the Amazon team relied mainly on user-generated buying and selling to get by. You can buy everything from groceries to car parts on Amazon… so, getting a discount would be helpful.
What are Amazon Discount Codes?
Back in the days when we all used to shop in the high street, the local stores might have dropped discount vouchers through the door to encourage us to buy their products. These vouchers would be taken to the store and shown at the point of sale. They would then be used for their worth.
The discount code is the digital voucher for money off. It is used in the same way and shown (entered) at the sale point to ensure you get the cash off suggested. They can only be used with Amazon. When you enter the code, Amazon pays the seller for the difference, so the seller doesn’t lose out. There are times when a seller will apply the code themselves, of course. It all depends on the size and wealth behind the product.
How do I find and use a discount code?
You can find new Amazon discount codes by searching on the internet. You can search in your Google browser or by typing a question into your URL bar. There may be discount codes if you browse through the website of the company you want to shop with, but these are few and far between.
When you have your discount code, you will enter it by clicking on your cart at the store designated on the code. Once entered, you will have your discount and save yourself some hard-earned cash.
