Want to get more wings for less cash? Red Bull is on sale via Amazon’s Subscribe & Save program, but there are a few things you should know about how to redeem this deal.
Through Subscribe & Save, you can get a 24-pack of 8.4-oz. original flavor Red Bull discounted to $20.89 (before tax) at checkout. Originally retailing for $31.98 on Amazon, this Red Bull discount bumps the price-per-can down to less than $1 each, since shipping is free.
Subscribe & Save can get you a relatively cheap case of sugar-free Red Bull, too. For $21, before tax, you can score a case of sugar-free Red Bull when you use Subscribe & Save. Slickdealer suRheal points out the discount “Even beats Costco’s current deal at $27.99, especially if you use Amazon Prime credit card w/ 5% cashback.”
However, the Red Bull discount won’t get you as much of a deal on other flavors, such as Coconut Berry or Kiwi Apple. And please note that you won’t see the discount applied until you’ve added the item to your cart.
The nice thing about this deal is that the discount stacks. So, if you have other Amazon promotions, you can use them to get multiple discounted Red Bull cases in your first order. If you’ve moved recently, for example, you can add the Amazon Move discount to the S&S discount and save even more.
How Amazon Subscribe & Save Works
So what is Subscribe & Save? Essentially, Amazon Prime offers coupons and savings up to 15% off on select items when you subscribe to a quota of items per month. Things you buy regularly, from energy drinks to toilet paper, will arrive at your door as scheduled, which means you can avoid last-minute trips to the grocery store or panicked Instacart deliveries with all those extra fees.
Don’t ever forget to read Amazon’s fine print, though. Slickdealer SeanFrank pointed out that Subscribing & Saving means you have to schedule regular shipments of the product you’re ordering, and the sale price may not be the same by the time your next scheduled order is processed. You have to monitor the price and cancel any additional S&S orders you don’t want. Otherwise, you could end up paying full retail price.
Additionally, we’ve reported on issues with Amazon’s Subscribe & Save program in the past. Specifically, we spotted a number of instances of Amazon allegedly changing the prices on S&S orders at random.
Make sure to do your research thoroughly before committing. And don’t forget to set a Deal Alert so you can stay on top of any new Red Bull discounts or cheap energy drink deals.
