Amazon is a large, internet-based retail brand that has some of the lowest prices on thousands of products — and offers two-day shipping through its Prime memberships. Although Amazon started off as an online bookstore, the retailer grew into a massive company that sells clothing, movies, shoes, electronics, kitchenware, toys, and much more. With nearly 20 departments and 7 different bargain sections, it’s easier to save on Amazon than it is to pay full price at another retailer. Amazon offers a Price Protection Guarantee, so if you buy something that goes on sale within a week after purchase, the company will gladly refund the difference if you contact the customer service department. Amazon also hosts a variety of sales, including lightning deals, special offers, and warehouse deals, so you can save even more on your purchase. When you shop at Amazon, you’re sure to discover low prices on a variety of products every day!
Here are some commonly asked questions about Amazon:
Shoppers can apply promo codes at checkout on Amazon.com. When you place an order and go to your shopping cart, you’ll be able to review your order right before you check out. In the same area as your shipping address and payment method, you should see a small text box under “Gift cards & promotional codes.” Type in the promo code and hit “Apply.” Your discounts will instantly appear! Use an Amazon coupon or promo code from this page so you can score even more reduced items.
Amazon Prime is an annual membership program that offers exclusive perks, services, and deals for members. For only $99 a year, you’ll receive full access to free two-day shipping and same-day delivery on eligible purchases, unlimited streaming of movies and TV shows on Prime Instant Video, and books from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.
There is also an Amazon Prime Day (which happens on July 15) that gives members access to deals that are even better than Black Friday’s steals. You can try Amazon Prime free for 30 days to see if the annual membership program is the best fit for you. If you don’t typically purchase expensive items off Amazon very often, then Amazon Prime probably isn’t worth it. The program is meant to make your online shopping experience more convenient for you, but make sure it’s worth the yearly membership fee before you sign up.
Unfortunately, Amazon doesn’t accept PayPal because they’re a competitor. However, you can pay with a major credit card, gift card, Amazon points, checking account, invoice, or Amazon Payments. Amazon Payments is the retailer’s version of PayPal, so you can make secure purchases from third-party websites without having to re-enter your payment information. Using Amazon Payments is just as easy as PayPal and makes checkout quick and safe!
All in all, Amazon doesn’t want you to delete your account, so the retailer will try to deter you from deleting it. However, the process just takes a few steps. First, log into your Amazon account. Next, cancel or remove any existing orders before you delete your account. After all orders are removed, click “Help” and then “Contact Us” to contact the customer support team. Next, click on “Something else” on Amazon’s “Contact Us” page, scroll down the page, and hit “Account Settings.” After that step, select “Close my account.” Unfortunately, you have to contact Amazon either by email, phone, or live chat in order to completely close your account. After you’ve finished those steps, you’ll have to wait and receive a confirmation email that your account has been closed.

Jon answered on 3.29.18: It seems like every day I return home from work, there’s an Amazon package at my front door. My family uses Amazon to restock everyday items — including paper towels, dish soap, and deodorant — and the boxes slowly trickle in throughout each month. And while I can’t imagine life without Amazon, I certainly couldn’t afford to pay for shipping on all of the packages we receive. read more »
