This is not an official page from Amazon, it’s just my own experience on purchasing on Amazon US website. To tell you my story, at the very first time I went to Amazon website, I was stuck at product in detail page. There was no “Add to card” button but a “Subscribe and save” one, however I didn’t want to subscribe at that time because I didn’t know what was that. Otherwise there were a lot of options and I did not know where to go for the next step: Amazon Prime, Amazon family, Baby Registry, Subscribe & Save, etc. What does that mean all those things, which option is suitable for a parent ?
Thinking I’m not the only one who was facing this issue, I would like to share with you what I know about all those programs, maybe it will help you to not spend much of time at the beginning as I had to. Let’s check them out one by one:

C. One-time purchase option
It’s simple as its name. You just want to do your purchase once. New amazon users will prefer to this option since they don’t know well Amazon programs yet. That’s why I’m writing this article ^^.
D. Subscribe & Save
This programm will be gainful for you if you have regularly need for a same product. Amazon is proposing deals/sales off for this kind of need with Subscribe & Save program. Meaning for example if you need diapers for your baby or food for your dog, you find out your favorite product on Amazon and would like them to deliver to your door every Saturday morning at 10am, this program is perfectly suitable for you.
Sometime you can see multiple sales off on this program, such as: 5% or 15%, this saving depends on the number of products you order, example:
- 1-5 products on an order: 5% saved
- over 5 products on an order: 15% saved
