Have you heard? Amazon.com has coupons. You may have seen a random coupon here or there while shopping for toothpaste or sunblock, but there's actually an entire section of Amazon that's dedicated to coupons and it's not just for groceries and household goods. You can find coupons for electronics, pet supplies, toys, and other items.

No scissors are necessary to clip Amazon coupons and you don't have to worry about forgetting to bring them with you either.

To get started with Amazon coupons, go to Amazon.com, then click on the link at the top for "Today's Deals." In the menu of subitems, click on "Coupons." You can also use this direct link.

Once you get to the coupon section, you can browse the featured or most popular coupons by clicking on the links in the left column. If you keep scrolling down, you can check out all the other categories as well.

When you find an item that interests you, you can either click on the "Clip this coupon" button and move on to another item, or click on the item to learn more about it. Clicking on the item automatically clips the coupon for you.

When you're all done shopping and want to use the coupons you've clipped, go to your cart and check out like you normally would. In the cart details, you should see the coupon amounts deducted from your total.
