The holiday season is coming up so you know what that means on Amazon. Shopping madness! You definitely want to beat the crowds for your sanity's sake and also to make sure you get the best gifts while they're still in stock. Even more important than that though, is the amount you'll save with time on your side. You can literally get paid to shop early and save money on Amazon during the holidays.

1. Get a high-paying cash back credit card for your Amazon purchases
Sign up for the Discover IT credit card to get 5% cashback on your Amazon purchases from October to December. It's a no annual-fee cash back credit card with a $50 cash back bonus after your first purchase if you use the link.
Bonus tip! You can search by the amount of the discount. Enter your search term, and on the left sidebar of your results page, scroll until you see the Discount heading.
3. Get your package shipped in time for free
Hit the minimum quota to get free shipping (hack: if you're under the threshold, add a gift card to your order), or don't worry about it with an Amazon Prime membership. Sign up to get your first month free, or six months free if you happen to be a student and sign up with an .edu email address.
4. Select the no rush shipping option
This is available if you have Prime and makes sense if you use benefits like Prime Pantry or digital products. When you select your shipping method, there is a "no rush shipping" option. You will see what type of credit you will receive if you opt for "no rush shipping" and decide whether it's worth it for you to wait.
5. Use your Prime membership at Whole Foods
If you're a fan of gifting food or going in-store for your shopping, make sure to put Whole Foods on your list if you are a Prime member.
Not only can you save on ingredients that you could use for a holiday potluck dish for a get-together, Prime members can enjoy additional discounts on sale items on a wide variety of products in the Whole Foods store.
There you have it, some simple ways that can save you hundreds on your holiday shopping. Sign up for the Discover IT credit card to save $50 and get additional cash back from your purchases on Amazon.com. Take advantage of Amazon Prime (free trial when you sign up) to save even more. Get a headstart on your holiday shopping to make the most of it and save money on Amazon!
