Shopping for clothes on Amazon can boost your style at cheaper, more affordable prices; especially if you know these hidden money saving features.

Beginning with a shift in fashion strategy toward offering more high-end designers such as Rebecca Taylor, 3×1, Loeffler Randall and Solid & Striped, many fashionista millennials are shopping for clothes on Amazon more than any other online retailer.

Thanks to Amazon Prime, whatever we order, we never have to wait longer than two days for it to arrive at our door to try it on with our outfits.

Online shopping for clothes on Amazon makes it easy to improve your seasonal capsule wardrobe and dress with better style. Best news, take running and trying on clothing at retail stores off your to-do list.

However, online shopping comes with the uncertainty of sizes, fits, real color and quality of the clothing material. But with these secret features, you can happily shop at Amazon on a budget!


ThredUP App

No matter what style of clothes you wear, thredUP carries a wide variety and you won’t be disappointed. Purchases made through the thredUP app arrive within 3 to 4 days in great condition. 

Amazon shoppers have given 4.5 star thredUP reviews when purchasing clothes through thredUP. This is the best online thrift store and secondhand consignment platform.

Check Out SnagShout to get up to 90% off Amazon clothes

You can claim a promo code through SnagShout by providing reviews. You’ll get either free or deeply discounted floral printed blouses, knit trapeze dress, and many more key items to fulfill your capsule wardrobe each season.


Buy When The Price Drops Through CamelCamelCamel

Nowadays no one buys full price clothes. If you are like me, waiting for price drops and finding good quality deals on clothes.

From essential to designer clothes, you don’t have to register on CamelCamelCamel to track product prices, but when you do sign up, you’ll get free email alerts and Amazon Wishlist access! CamelCamelCamel will let you know when the price goes down on Amazon.

Bonus: Simply bring up a price drop list on any Amazon item by installing CamelCamelCamel’s add-ons for Chrome and Firefox.


Shop With Points

You can shop and use those points to pay for clothes on Amazon. Instead of redeeming earned points on limited items, use them to purchase essential key items for your capsule wardrobe. Simply choose to apply points at checkout, and you can even set points to apply to all purchases automatically.

Who doesn’t love getting more cash back? I do! You can earn 3% cash back by clicking to the Amazon website through the Ebates shopping portal on your Amazon purchases.


Be Your Stylist, Alexa!

Do you own Amazon Alexa device at home? Just ask Alexa “What are your deals?” to hear list of Alexa Deals featuring clothes up to 40% off.


Up To 70% Off Clothes Through RetailMeNot

I use RetailMeNot before I do any purchases through retail stores and online shopping. RetailMeNot occasionally features Amazon promo codes for all categories such as on clothing, accessories, electronics, home, books, and many more.


Stay Alert With Daily Deal Email

If you don’t want to miss out on great discounted clothes for fulfilling your capsule wardrobe, go ahead and also sign up for the Daily Deal email notifications. Often these items are up to 80% off. They sell out super fast due to limited quantities.


Buy Clothes With Bitcoin and Save 2%

This is a perfect way to spend some Bitcoins! We use our Bitcoins to purchase gift cards and then redeem the value at nationwide retailers. Egifter offers a 2% incentive points program. If you also find yourself often going to the same stores, pre buy gift cards and earn cash back!


Amazon Prime Day

Pro tip: Mark your calendar for the annual Prime Day in July. It’s every summer, just like Amazon’s version of Black Friday. It’s a day filled with tremendous deals from all departments, especially fitting for your summer wardrobe!


Shop for Amazon Gift Cards to Use Up Prepaid Debit Card Balances

Use the remaining balance on your prepaid debit cards to purchase gift cards with the exact amount. This way you don’t leave $2.16 as a remaining balance and are unable to use it in the end.

This hack is great way to finish up any prepaid cards. Split up the Amazon transaction and use up that old Visa Gift Card


Get Amazon Prime Credit and Two-Day Shipping

If your an Amazon Prime member, choose the No-Rush shipping option (5-7 business days) instead of two-day Prime shipping. You often get credit towards another service they offer wether its Amazon Fresh or a Video Credit.

More often than not, the package arrives early anyway, so there is a chance you get both a credit and faster shipping.


Get a Refund or Your Prime Membership Extended

If your package doesn’t ship on time, get a full refund for the shipping cost, or receive a one moth extension on your Amazon Prime account. So keep an eye out for when your package ships and arrives.

This trick could add up to a few dollars saved if they continue to delay shipping your packages.


Shop the Amazon Outlet Store

Great deals can be found in the outlet section. Of course off-season is the best time to buy, but you never know. You may even get lucky and stumble upon a must have essential wardrobe item.


Know the Best and Worst Items to Buy

Amazon offers a wide variety of products, but not all of them are the cheapest. Do your best to shop around and compare prices for similar goods elsewhere.

I’m a huge fan of budget saving tricks. If you are too, also save money by trying out these simple hacks from ASOS, Target, and Nordstrom Rack,


Use the Best Credit Cards for Amazon Purchases

Use a credit card that offers the best rewards for you to shop at Amazon. Its just like saving money on your original purchase. The rewards will add up by the end of the year and you will also be credited with the resulting savings.

Pro tip: As a result, I use the official Amazon Chase card, but you may find better rewards using another program.


No extravagant schemes here, just a few simple and easy ways to save money by shopping more effectively. Furthermore, online retail is a buyers marketplace, you just need to know where to look and be willing to shop around for the right price. As a result, discounts and money saving strategies are always available, no matter what you’re really looking for.
