And if you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber, you get free delivery. They even have clickable coupons now. They got some pretty good deals going on.
But did you know that you can save even more money on Amazon? You just need to know a few hacks. These hacks can get you lower prices, refunds, and even free stuff.

There’s a secret way to find all the discounts on Amazon. Just add this code “&pct-off=” at the end of the URL of your search results. Just pop in the percentages you’re looking for. So, if you’re looking for 40 to 70 percent off you’d type in “&pct-off=40-70.”
3) Get A Free Month Of Prime

Lazy People Solutions That Defy Common Sense
There’s the right way of doing things, and then there’s the wrong way of doing things. But how can a solution be wrong when it’s faster? This is how.
Every day, we go through small internal battles. We argue with ourselves over doing things right or doing things fast. The 40 people ahead all opted to do things fast. And the consequences came even faster as a result!
It’s as good as new.
If you look closely, you’ll be able to see that some of the column uses new wood. Thanks to this restoration, the roof that the column’s holding up should stay in place for weeks. Warning: Do not play Jenga with this!
For once, the sockets are making the right expression
Drilling metal screws into the plugs? What could possibly go wrong? The weird thing about this one is that it actually took some effort to do something so stupid.
Calm down, there’s some plastic tape. No one could possibly walk over the gap with that tape in place. Right?
10+ People That Had No Idea How Attractive They Were Until They Worked To Improve Themselves
Sometimes when your health is out of balance you can’t see yourself clearly. When people struggle with something physical, like weight, they can’t always see how beautiful they really are. These people didn’t even realize how attractive they were until they worked on themselves, but now they can celebrate their appearances every day.
These 30 people have powerful stories, and their transformations are absolutely amazing. Their messages are so inspiring.
“I lost 100 lbs, and I feel great.”
“It took me 2 years and 3 months to get in shape. It sounds like a lot of time, but it was well worth it.”
“I made true friends, and they helped me to have a more active lifestyle. That’s how I managed to lose weight. Now I can communicate with any person.”
“The difference between these 2 photos is 4 years. And I was even used to not enjoying what I looked like.”
“Me when I was 19 and 21.”
“I was depressed because of the way I looked. I didn’t even want to live. But I decided that I was able to change everything, so I started losing weight… I feel great, and I’m enjoying my life!”
“I didn’t use to be really fat. I had a hard time choosing the right hairstyle.”
“I used to weigh 60 lb, now I weigh 90, and I keep working on my body.”
“3 years between these photos. Some people don’t believe that it’s me.”
“So much has changed in 3 years! Before, I didn’t get out much. I was very shy. Now we live in a time when changing your appearance is very easy.”
“Just 4 years, and this is what I’ve become (I’m on the right).”
“I didn’t do anything special, but I’m not ugly anymore.”
“I restored what was destroyed by 20 years of McDonald’s and Coke.”
“15 months later I finally have a chin! Now I’m doing everything I can to maintain my weight.”
“I lost 100 lb, and I keep working on my body.”
“The difference is just 4 years. I was a nerd, and now I’m a macho.”
“The difference between these photos is 25 months. I had always been fat, so I decided that I could lose weight.”
“My weight was 330 lb when I finally decided to start losing weight… But now I have a new goal — 180 lb. I’ve started my way to it! I wish you luck too.”

“This is my progress.”
“Now I am 25, I lost 120 lb, and I work out every day.”
“This is my boyfriend at the age of 16 and 21. It’s hard to tell that it’s the same person.”
“I knew I owed it to my son to try to break the family tree of obesity. There are so many compromises to being an obese parent: I was simply forfeiting the ability to participate in so many wonderful moments.”
“As the pounds started to come off, I noticed a change, but others didn’t — until the day I appeared outside of my office standing up.”
“My goal is to train and inspire people to show them that the weight loss is possible.”
“My dad pushed me and motivated me to start working out. He would tell me he wanted me to be around for a long time.”

50 Cringeworthy Fashion Fails We Can’t Believe People Didn’t Notice
Not all of us are fashion experts. This is why we try to experiment and mix and match clothes to see if we can look more stylish. Unfortunately, the more we try to look more fashionable, the more we end up failing. The risky fashion choice we make often leaves us looking ridiculous and weird in other people’s eyes.
Fortunately, fashion disasters aren’t always bad. In fact, they can be transformed into little entertainment and also a warning for others to never try to copy them.
Here are the most cringe-worthy fashion fails you need to see this year:
1. Brown logo on white shoes
In theory, putting a brown logo on a white background will make a product look classy. In reality, a brown logo on white shoes just looks like bird poo from afar.
2. A not-so-comfortable evening dress
This is probably one of the most uncomfortable dresses you’ll see. I don’t think you’ll have a great time wearing this to a party or anywhere.
3. When you accidentally stepped on something
This is actually a good pair of shoes if you always walk on mud or dirt. You won’t have to worry about cleaning your shoes. Plus, its design can work as camouflage for when you accidentally stepped on your dog’s poo.
Will you give up or will you never give up? Well, it’s a good shirt to wear if you still can’t decide. At least, you’re letting other people know where you stand.
