7 things you didn't know you could buy on Amazon

By bzbeth 18 Nov 2017

Starting to feel a bit short on cash?

We know times can get hard at the point of the term but there are plenty of things on Amazon to make the cost that little bit lighter. Some of them you might not even know about! 

1. FREE Amazon Prime

Being a student means that you can get a free 6 month trial of Prime. This means you can watch thousands of TV shows/films, get student offers and get free one-day delivery (or even SAME DAY in some cities!) on millions of items - what are you waiting for?

2. Amazon Dash

Make the most of your Prime account and set up an Amazon Dash button in your room/flat so whenever you run out of your favourite moisturiser, toilet paper or washing powder all you need to do is push a button to reorder it! You don't have to worry about going to the shops and you get your first order for free. 

3. International food/drink

Are you missing the traditional food from home? Or have you always wanted to sample some American candy or Chinese Kit-Kats? Amazon is the place to buy your favourite snacks, drinks, cereals and cupboard food you can't buy in British supermarkets and it's cheaper!

4. Top brands!

Brands such as Levis, Ted Baker, Superga, Miss Selfridge, New Look and many others sell their clothes and shoes at a cheaper price on Amazon than if you were to buy them in stores. You'd be silly not to take advance of the offers!

5. Fresh meat

Yes, you can buy batches of chicken or beef and get them delivered straight to you! They typically come in quite big batches (between 1kg and 5kg) so it might be worth asking your flatmates to chip in and sticking it in the freezer until you need it.

6. Makeup

It can be pretty painful on your bank account when your makeup all runs out at once but if you look on Amazon you may be able to find your foundation or concealer for cheaper or even a drug store alternative! Why not treat yourself to some cheap Real Techniques brushes whilst you're at it?

7. Male grooming

Don't worry, we haven't forgotten about the guys! If you're using the last of your razors or shaving balm you can get big brands like Gilette and Nivea online for a lot cheaper than shops you might have in town.

Keep an eye on how much you're spending and try to cut costs as much as you can in the lead up to your final month before Christmas!
