I’ve become a pretty lazy shopper, especially since becoming a mom. I guess it is because going out to buy things has become a struggle with the kids in tow. I do enjoy a bargain hunt, especially at Ross and TJ Maxx (my two favorite places to find deals) when I am able to have my mommy alone time.
Most of the time though, Amazon has been the place to buy most things. Being a Prime member is kind of dangerous too since shipping is free and it is 2 day shipping. When shopping on Amazon, you pretty much have an idea of what you want to buy, or know exactly what you want to buy, so there isn’t much room for discounted items. I do browse Lightning Deals sometimes, but barely find anything worth buying.
Enter Elite Deal Club. It’s like Lightning Deals intensified. I say that because you literally have to act super fast to get these deals. Granted, you take what you can get, but you will often find things that you may need. Since the prices are so low, you don’t have much to lose at all. I realized that I had signed up for the site months ago, but didn’t realize it’s greatness until recently. I tried it for myself and scored some great deals!
I’m a huge fan of matcha green tea, and was able to get a couple matcha green tea items for free and $1 that would be otherwise $5-$10.
Beauty products are also hard to come by, especially when buying online. I am used to getting my beauty products at Target, and I even have gotten pretty good brands (paraben free/organic) for less at TJ Maxx. I noticed some face cleansers I got for Free and $0.14. I have yet to try them out, since I am still finishing up my current cleanser, but they’re in the queue for using!
I also was able to get some gifts for family through Elite Deal Club, such as a Stainless Steel Cocktail Shaker set for $1 and Surgical Steel Tea Kettle for $3! I was pretty happy about that! If I paid regular price, I’d probably pay around $60!
Why Are Items So Cheap?
Elite Deal Club gets coupon codes from the sellers of these products offering members a deep discount. Some products offer lots of coupon codes while others only have a limited number of coupons. This is why when you log into the site, you really have to be quick about getting the deals otherwise, they become sold out. There are literally 100s of products being given at these deep discounts which is why members are standing by waiting to get them!
How Do You Get The Deals?
Getting the deals is easy and also a bit tricky. Deals open at 10 am EST, 2 pm EST and 8 pm EST. You have 3 chances to get deals. At 10 am EST, you are only allowed to get one deal. At 2pm and 8pm EST you can get more than 1 deal.
Tip: Have your browser logged in and open to the site a few minutes before. Refresh when it is closer to the time! You can also set alarms on your phone to remind you to log into the site too.
There are items called Elite Deals, which require you to pay a fee in order to get the coupon code. You will be required to link up a credit card. The fee is using a $1-$5, depending on the product. Make sure you are really going to order it, otherwise you will be charged even if you end up not ordering it. The Amazon Deals don’t require you to pay a fee.
Once you click on an item you’re interested in, you are taken to that individual claim page. You can grab the code, if it isn’t sold out yet, and click to Amazon to purchase the item. Once you’re in Checkout, you would add the coupon code to get the discount before placing the order on Amazon.
Do I Have To Do Anything In Return For Getting These Items?
Nope! You used to have to provide a review on the product on Amazon, but that is no longer required. Unless you feel inclined to! Otherwise, you get the item for that price and that’s it!
I did check out some other sites that are similar to Elite Deal Club, but the only other one I thought was worth mentioning is called Snagshout. The difference is that you can buy items all day, but the discount isn’t as deep.
Some tips on using Elite Deal Club
- They will send an email to you on the deals they will be offering that day via email, so you can search on Amazon to see if they’re worth buying.
- It is easy to get a bit carried away when getting items, so only get things you would see yourself using!
- It is best to have an Amazon Prime membership in order to take advantage of the free 2-day shipping. You can even try Amazon Prime for 30 Days free if you’re not yet a member.
If you end up using Elite Deal Club, let me know your experience, and if you already have used it, what have you been able to score for really cheap?
