    Jeff Bezos was probably reading this thread, and realized you were upset about it.

    When you are going to order something, if it can be added to the subscribe and save, there will be two prices shown. The higher price is for a one-time order, and the lower price is if you want to do the S&S option.
    Not everything can be on the S&S, but most things that you would buy repeats of (such as vitamins or other foods) should give you the option. When you choose the S&S, then you can decide how often you want it sent out, and if you have more than one item on this choice, then it will send them all out together.

    Yes, and you can edit your subscriptions at any time, too... or "skip" a month for some of your subscribed items. I tend to get a backlog of paper towels and toilet paper, so lots of times I skip a month.

    One annoyance to me was that there is an automatic setting that selects payment method, so if that matters be sure to check which method when setting up the order. I had some gift cards I was hoarding and I typically want all my Amazon orders to go on the Amazon Visa (to get the 5% rewards). I didn't know that they use gift card balances FIRST and then other payment methods, so I was PO'd when my gift card got used for toilet paper. :mad::rolleyes:

    I never do the subscribe and save. I'm always happy when I have an excuse to shop around on Amazon. I don't like the WalMart site as much, but the $35 minimum for 2 day free shipping is a good deal as well.

    I like Walmart online, too. In fact, I have started comparison shopping the two sites. Last week I ordered some Biolage shampoo from Walmart; it was $18 for a 32 oz bottle. The same bottle was $28 at Amazon!

    You can do that with Sam’s as well. (If you’re a member obviously)
    We bought a package of “Barlean’s” Chia, Coconut and Flax seed for $13 at Sam’s and when Yvonne looked at Amazon to compare, it was $23.
