Amazon Shopping Tips and Tricks

I shop online with very often, so summarize some tips and tricks regarding the shopping experience.

Amazon prime
Suggest to enroll with your friends to split the cost for FREE 2 days shipping for all primary members. The account owner also gets unlimited video streaming service.

No-Rush shipping reward
If you buy something and choose no-rush shipping, you will get credits for Digital, prime panty or prime now. The rewards have expiry date, usually 3 months. You can check the balance from

Amazon Smile
Always shop through to donate to your selected charity (like home school, your church etc) while you are shopping with Amazon.

Amazon Assistant
You can install "Amazon Assistant" browser extension to quickly access Amazon, search product, track your orders, see today's deals, and add product to your wish list. This is a very handy extension to help you shop with Amazon.

Return your purchase
Amazon only provides 30 days return window, so act quickly if you don't like the purchase. For prime member, the return shipping is free as well. When you return something, select a reason which does not cost you shipping fee. Drop to UPS is a convenient way as they are many UPS stores.

Price Match
Amazon doesn't provide price match. The easiest way is to buy a new one, then return the old one if it is still in return order. I usually chatted with their support, they can provide price adjustment, but recently they change this, and prefer buy-and-return flow with extra shipping cost. I guess Amazon shipping cost with UPS or USPS is very low.
