Amazon Subscribe & Save Filler Items Updated August 2014

I'd previously compiled a list of items that Amazon sells as Subscribe & Save products that cost under $2.  However that list is mostly now obsolete and most of the items are well over $2.   I think all but the Barilla pasta was over $2.

Here's an updated list of items under $2 picked as of August 2014:

Glade Plugins Scented Oil Warmers = $1.32

Suave Naturals 2 In 1 Almond Verbena Shampoo, 22.5 Ounce = $1.42

Barilla PLUS Spaghetti Pasta, 14.5 Ounce Box = $1.42
Bull's Eye Texas Style Regional Barbecue Sauce, 17.5 Ounce Bottle = $1.42

Pringles Fat Free Sour Cream and Onion Super Stack, 5.43 Ounce = $1.44
Velveeta Kraft Cheesy Skillets Dinner Kit Box, Creamy Beef Stroganoff, 11.6 Ounce = $1.88

Kraft Shake N Bake Seasoned Coating Mix Box, Parmesan Crusted, 4.75 Ounce = $1.90

Orville Redenbacher's Gourmet Naturals Popcorn, Garlic Butter and Sea Salt, 76.3 Grams, 3 Count = $2.07

OK that last one is over $2 but hey I figured its popcorn and it would have pretty wide appeal.

I've discussed before how you can get a  better discount on Amazon Subscribe and Save purchases if you order 5 items at once.  However if you don't buy a lot of stuff then it can be hard to come up with a 5 item order.   However if your products are worth enough then it can be worth it to add some filler items to get up to 5 items to get the 15% discount. 

Say for example, you want to buy a couple cases of Pampers Swaddlers Diapers  that run $45.97 each with a normal purchase.   With Subscribe and save you'd get a 5% get the price down to $43.67.    But if you have 5 items in your S&S order then it is only $36.78 or a $6.89 savings.   And if you're buying two of those then thats double or $13.78.    Adding the 4 cheapest items listed here to the S&S order would only cost you $4.99 total with the 5 item discount so its worth buying those items to get you a net savings of $8.79.

Note if you don't want the filler items and only use them to get a 5 item discount then you can of course always give away the food items to someone you know or donate them to the local food bank.
