  • Morning Coffee: Amazon Back to School Grocery Sale


    Amazon has grocery dealsfor back to school season, including beverages, snacks, etc. On mainstream items, you can probably get a better deal using a coupon during a sale at your local grocery store, but Amazon’s sale includes specialty items that are harder to find bargains on, like gluten-free baking mixes and organic snack foods. For example, Amazon has 6 boxes of EnviroKidz Organic Cheetah Crispy Rice Berry Barsfor just $15.69 and Annie’s Homegrown Bunny Friends Grahamsfor just $13.67 with Subscribe & Save. Those are better than sale prices I’ve seen at the grocery store, and you can cancel Subscribe & Save any time after your order ships by going to “Manage Subscribe & Save Items” on the “Your Account” page. There are other specialty foods included in the sale, so if you have a favorite, definitely take a look.
