Thread Details

Let's say I add things to S&S with clipped coupons and the delivery date is 9/15.

You can easily change your delivery date with S&S to whatever you'd like in the future.
So if I go and change the delivery date (for the same S&S "month") to a few weeks later, do I still get the coupons applied? Or do I lose them (and how do I know the difference)?

I've been extending my deliveries for a while now since nothing I need right away, and I want to keep the 15% going as long as possible until I really need something.

Amazon doesn't show coupons on your "manage your subscriptions" page anyway so I'm not sure how to tell if the coupons/promos are still being applied.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

sorry for the multiple threads - SD was giving errors when posting, but looks like they were going through.

My understanding is that changing your date cancels the existing orders, and creates new ones at the current price, and also removes the coupons. I could be wrong and/or this could have changed. To be sure, you should be able to see your orders on the "Your Orders" page. If they don't show up there, then they'll probably be at whatever the "current" price is whenever your shipment date finally arrives. At that point you should have new orders show up.

It looks like my original orders are still in Your Orders section. I have extended delivery dates at least 6 weeks, so into new months.

hmm good point. Do you know though if they just need to be ordered before expiration vs. shipped?

Amazon lists S&S orders pretty poorly. It just shows you the total in your order confirmation email (which should take into account the coupons), but on the manage S&S page it shows the regular price of the item.

I can't find a clear S&S policy about coupons when extending delivery date.

I guess when my big order ships, I will have to compare what's charged with all my order confirmations that are in the S&S - I'm sure Amazon will correct it for me at least the first time.

Either way - it's good to know you can do this to keep the 15% level discount.

Have five S&S items with coupons applied and 9/30 delivery date.
Yesterday I changed delivery date to 9/9.
Today all of the invoices show 9/9 delivery date with coupons/discounts still applied.

ok but you moved the date earlier, which might be an easier scenario than moving it later
