    Then scroll up, to the right and choose "Priced lowest to highest" drop the dropdown menu.

    Then scroll left, and choose the departments most likely to have merchandise you want, or if you are really bored, leave it set to all departments.

    I bought a $300 self-watering raised planter for my front porch this way, for less than $20.
    Choose 'no rush' shipping and you will get a credit of some sort. I have gotten $5 off Prime Pantry, $10 off Prime Now, and several $1 credits for Amazon Prime Video.

    It seems crazy to pay for free 2 day shipping and then get money back for not getting something in 2 days, but I don't need everything in two days, so I take the credits!
    Thanks from Madeline

    I have never used amazon in my life. Not once. We have a .ca version for Canada and I check it once in a while.

    It goes like this.

    OK Pokemon cards are 28.00 at Walmart.ca with free delivery and 30 at Toys R Us.ca for pick up. I'll just check Amazon and E-Bay.

    Hmmm Amazon has them for 59 dollars, and E-Bay for... 80?????

    I guess it's duties.
    Thanks from Madeline

    It's a nefarious plot to punish Canada for its universal health care.

    The butt hurt is strong, down here.

    Yep sometimes I find my local target is cheaper than Amazon. Plus now they are doing this "thing" where you either have to buy the item through their "pantry" or "fresh" - neither one I use. It's kind of pissing me off.
