Amazon is ready for Valentine’s Day – even if you are not! For a limited time, you can get FREE Two-Day Shipping on select candy and gourmet food items. Not only that, Amazon Prime members will get a FREE $5 credit to spend on ANYTHING on Amazon (must be item fulfilled by Amazon). This will be in the form of a credit applied to your account. So, make sure you sign up for Amazon Mom before you start your shopping so you are eligible for the credit.
They have taken 25% off of several Valentine’s Day items. One thing I happened to notice was Ghirardeli Dark Chocoalte with Raspberry Filling, 4 – 5.32 oz bags. These are marked down to $12.92 right now, which makes them $3.23 per bag – which is pretty close to what you pay in the store. However, when you net your $5 Amazon credit you are paying even less than at the stores!
You might also want to pick up some Ghirardeli Hot Chocolate Mix, Chocolate Mocha (4 – 16 oz cans) for as low as $13.02. The price is $15.32, but select subscribe and save an your price drops to $13.02 — or just $3.25 per canister. Pick up some mugs and marshmallows and you have a great gift for someone! Net your credit and it is like paying just $8.02 for 4 canister of Hot Cocoa.
There is also a new code that will save you an ADDITIONAL 15% off of Nestle candy products. Use the code NESTVDAY and save even more. I noticed that they had Nestle Butterfinger Valentine’s Hearts, 11 oz bag (4 count) for $16.00. When you apply the code, you will save another 15% and pay only $13.60 for 4 which is $3.40 per bag ($0.31 per ounce). When you net your $5 credit, it is like paying only $8.60 for 4 bags of candy!
Always keep in mind that Amazon will not charge sales tax (in most cases), so that is a savings. Plus, not having to spend money driving to the store – or even your PERSONAL time – to pick up items really can make these deals even “sweeter” (yes – pun intended)!
UPDATE: Amazon’s $5 credit was rather misleading on some items (which I learned after this post was made). Make sure that you purchase from select gourmet gifts so that you can get the credit – the full list of items is here.
