4. Techniques of payment
Da Lu Huo Yuan is in front, I believe people know that Amazon has some experience.This then save money can not everyone will be used, if used well, 20% can save money!Also, Amazon Member for a fee, these tips are free!
Generally available in Amazon credit card, debit card, gift card, this can be done inside articles is very big.Can often save 5%-20%.

Simple comparison shows that Amazon and Chase launch joint credit cards are the most unworthy applied (3%), Amazon Store Card you will need to meet the Amazon Prime members are 5% (too single use).Sallie Mae is covered Amazon annual consumption ($750 per month limit cannot apply now), and Freedom and Discover It's actually covers the most important shopping season, nor does it fall downwind.If you do not have more than a couple of credit cards, in the Amazon is expensive, has recently proposed to apply for Discover It (double cash back with cash back Amazon 10%, card has sent $100) or Chase Freedom (most recently the highest card reward $175).And Amex credit cards because the Offer was not there on a regular basis, so there is no need for Amazon to save money individual applications.
4.2 the gift card payment (5%-20%)
Amazon gift card can also be used to cover the Amazon order including shipping, if you can buy Amazon gift cards at a discount, then Amazon consumer savings in disguise.Here are several ways to buy discount Amazon gift card.
