Amazon is a giant in online sales, where you can find just about anything. Learn how to take advantage of getting the rock bottom prices, best deals and free shipping.

Amazon is a great place to get the best online deals. This online retail giant has earned a solid reputation for quality, service, availability and security. A trusted secure site is a must. Amazon has proven itself to be a trusted and reputable site we can all feel good about. While most all of us have grown to love the shopping experience Amazon offers, we still love a good bargain. Follow along as I share with you how to take advantage of Amazon's site to get the best from your shopping experience. I've been dealing with Amazon for many years now. I've learned how to get the most bang for your buck, pay less getting the deepest discounts possible plus get free shipping.

Today's Deals at Amazon

When you visit the site there's four links to the right of the Amazon logo in the upper left hand corner, the second one in is today's deals.

Check out today's deals for great close outs and clearance items. There is always a lot of great deals to be had on popular merchandise. The first two deals at the top of the page will be the highest priced deals offered. For instance today when I visited it was the Dr. Who set you see to the right. Once you get past these deals look just below them to see the deals that really get good. 

The Deals of the Day

Once you check out the deals just below the first couple of highlighted deals you really find the rock bottom deals on great merchandise.

Many people miss this as they focus merely on the bargains featured in the intro. Remember these are just the opening act. Dig deeper and look more clearly to find the amazing deals. Today's deals following in the line up after doctor Who are those you can find under the image like this, be sure to follow these links for the best of deals. Note: this is the banner on site today it changes regularly. Shop Amazon For Deep Discounts Now.

The Best Deals

Further down the page below today's deals you will notice the best deals, make sure to check these out.

The savings keep getting deeper.  You want to browse around as you never know what you might find. This is a great place to get your hands on deep discounts for impressive holiday gifts. It ranges from health and beauty, clothes, and on to power tools and televisions. The sky is truly the limit. Take note of the side arrow on the best deals, the arrows scroll you though all the best deals of the day. My favorite best deal of the day was this cool Photive Hybrid iPhone 5 Bumper Case Designed for The New iPhone 5 which I just had to get for only $9.95, Great Deal Right?

Amazon Coupons

The front page has coupons posted you may use to save even more money on great and much needed products.

Continue nosing further down the home page to find coupons on awesome stuff. To take advantage of these coupons you simply select the coupon item of your choice with a simple tap as you would any other item. You won't always see these deals but once you do the first time you'll be sure to keep an eye out for them in the future. 

Up to 40% off Amazon Stock

Amazon will also feature a 40% off collection of sales, these are typically found near the coupons of the day.

Today's featured item at 40% off is summer footwear. This is where Amazon offers the best deals on the seasonal name brand fashions and the like. My favorite shoe today is the Fitflop, yes that's fit not flip, women's fleur sandal. 

Discount Name Brand Shoes

I'm a sucker for a good shoe, as are so many of you. This is the place to get amazing deals on designer and name brand quality shoes.  After all, you know what you like and you will love it even more at such a discount.

Free Shipping

You can get free shipping anytime you shop Amazon by simply selecting super saver shipping in the check out options.

Amazon Prime

New Arrivals Sales

Check out banners like this to get discounts on the new arrivals of the season.

It is fall now and I'm looking to buy a new pair of boots. I'm in luck this banner is on the Amazon site today and as you can see I can save a lot of money on a stylish pair of boots. Off to shop now, back in a few to report my findings. This banner can be found on the home page, not the deal of the day page. It is off to the right side near the upper corner of the page. It looks like the snap shot below.

The Best Deals on Boots

I got the best deal on my winter boots.

I found exactly what I wanted at the new arrival discounts and for only $39.99. I love these bearpaw boots. I got a black pair three years ago and they still look and wear really great. They are warm, comfy and durable. Plus super easy to clean. These boots look great with everything. I wear mine all the time in the fall and winter. I get lots of compliments on my bearpaws. Today I'm getting the tan pair. I got super saver shipping on all the items I ordered today. The fun part for me is not only do I get my items delivered free, I get more than one package. 

I love getting packages in the mail. I've grown to love the thrill of receiving more than one delivery per order.  Surprise, wonder which item it is today! Enjoy your shopping experience. Leave any comments or questions below in the chat section. I will be sure to get back with you in a timely manner. 

Note: The deals and discounts do change daily, while I wrote this today you may find the same deals remaining or entirely different deals as these may have sold out or changed.  I check the deals of the day on a regular basis to keep up with the savings and bargains. 

How to Get Coupon Codes

Get even deeper discounts with coupon codes.

You may have noticed the area at checkout for coupon codes, What is this?  It's a numbers code you get from product sites promoting the sales of their product. It's really easy to get these codes. You should check for codes for every item you buy. To do so simply perform a Google search typing in the item you hope to find a coupon code for.

 For example I bought bearpaw boots today, I would type coupon code for Bearpaw boots in my browser to search for any available coupons. I would then copy the code, take it to my check out, paste it in the area for codes and add the savings to my cart before I check out.
