No time to do your regular grocery run? Thousands of Aussies across the nation are already getting their groceries delivered to their door thanks to the services of retailers like ColesWoolworths, eBay and David Jones.

And while Amazon Australia also has free delivery on orders over $49, they’re now offering customers some serious savings in the form of ‘Subscribe and Save’, a scheme that lets you get free delivery on repeat product orders.

What’s more, you’ll get to knock 10 per cent off your order, no matter what.

The ‘Subscribe and Save’ program includes thousands of household essentials in food, drink, pet supplies, vitamins and supplements, and beauty.

It means you’ll save dollars on familiar household names and staples such as Heinz, Coca Cola, Vegemite, Carman’s, L’Oreal, Moccona, Omo, Optimum Nutrition, and T2 tea.

How Amazon’s ‘Subscribe and Save’ works

When you shop on, the ‘Subscribe and Save’ icon will appear next to eligible products.

From here, you can ‘subscribe’ to products you buy often and choose the frequency that you want the product delivered, from one to six months.

You’ll be able to get 10 per cent off your basket every time you shop with Subscribe and Save no matter how much the item prices change, as well as free delivery (unless you want to get express shipping, which will incur a cost if you aren’t an Amazon Prime member).

As a customer, you will be able to skip deliveries, change delivery dates, or cancel a delivery.

From the ‘Manage your Subscriptions’ page, customers will have the flexibility to skip deliveries, change the delivery day or cancel.

‘Subscribe and Save’ is already available to Amazon customers in the UK, US and Canada, who favour grocery products, household goods, pet supplies and beauty products.

Amazon Australia country manager Matt Furlong said time and money were two of the most precious commodities, and that Amazon customers would be able to save on both with the program.

“There is nothing worse than running out of your favourite coffee, washing powder, nappies for your newborn, dog food, or toothpaste, and ‘Subscribe and Save’ will help make this a thing of the past.”
