    Wow! I’m amazed at this site. It never occurred to me to get dollar items to get to that threshold of not having to pay for shipping. I could’ve save LOTS of money had I had any wherewithal at all..  slapping my forehead.   Additionally,  I could’ve saved money recycling my clothes??? Clearly I haven’t had my thinking cap on much.  I’ll definitely be engaging this website more often!!!

    • Alyce says:

      Hello DeWayne and welcome to Best Rewards Programs! Thank you so much for sharing your feedback! I’m very happy to hear that you’re finding these articles to be useful. It’s always nice to save money wherever possible!

  2. wbredow says:

    Just plain wow! You have provided an amazing and helpful article that almost every Amazon shopper would find beneficial. Personally, I’ve never been that big of an Amazon shopper. I do have a Prime account. However, I mostly use it for books and movies. Even if there is a shopper that can’t find anything they will personally use, probably upwards of 98% of these items could be donated. 

    With that being said, I think I will actually bookmark this page for future reference. There are quite a few items listed that myself, or my wife, would find useful. 

    • Alyce says:

      Hello wbredow, It’s pretty cool how Amazon has expanded their Prime service to so many different channels. Our household certainly enjoys the movies and digital media that are available on Prime!

  3. PayneMastrFlex says:

    Looks like you have put together a great collection of different products, certainly is a lot of different things you can buy for just a few bucks. However, it also looks like you have to have Amazon prime in order to be eligible for these deals -is that correct? And if so, are you aware of the pricing and do you have an affiliate link to refer accounts?

    • Alyce says:

      Hello PayneMastrFlex, These items are available for any Amazon shopper, but Prime members will receive free Prime shipping with their purchase. Shoppers who are not yet Amazon Prime members may be required to have a minimum purchase before their items will ship.

  4. Mike says:

    Hello there! This page lists some great ideas for products that are $1 or less. In the past when I didn’t have Amazon Prime, I always found it a challenge to make sure my cart was over $35 to qualify for free shipping. I always came short by a few bucks and it was hard to come up with more items to add and hit that threshold. Definitely wish I ran into your page back in the day. Thanks for sharing this.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Mike, it is surprising how challenging it is to find small purchases on Amazon to get to a $35 cart total. I hope this list will help!

  5. LineCowley says:

    Wow, there are just so many products that are available for a dollar or less. If you can get free shipping if you order a minimum amount, then it is well worth your while to add some of these items to take you over the threshold. We all want to save money, and if we can save the shipping by adding a product that we will use in any case, then this is a brilliant suggestion.

  6. Rich Gilbert says:

    My wife does the Amazon Prime shopping. I haven’t run across the threshold in my shopping efforts yet, but this makes sense that you might need add on items from Amazon. I will make sure she sees this option. All of these items could be used in most households, Thanks for indentifying these cheaper products to fill the cart and make the number required for free prime shipping. I like those clamps. We seem to never have enough of those in the garage. 

  7. Nina says:

    Thanks for this article featuring one dollar items in Amazon. I was very curious about products that have such a great price for Amazon prime members. I can also find some of these products in our stores, but the price is higher.
    I think that it really pays to check the offer of products that are under one dollar when you buy something on Amazon, and order them in one purchase because you pay less for them than if you buy them in a local store (at least in our country).
    Friendly greeting,

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Nina, You are right that often Amazon prices are better than local stores. I still like to support local stores, but I’ve really appreciated making fewer trips to the store during the COVID pandemic. It’s been helpful to find 1 dollar things amazon to increase order size for faster shipping.

  8. Leahrae says:

    You list a lot of great one dollar Amazon deals!  I love shopping on Amazon.  When I need anything, I always head there first and check on the prices.  They are usually in line or less then anywhere else…and I have Amazon Prime, so shipping is free.  Its a snap!  Great ideas for great prices!

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Leahrae, It is definitely nice to find Amazon Prime stuff under $1!  It’s very easy to add-on Amazon items at this price!

  9. Farah Rehman says:

    What an interesting article. It goes to show that Amazon is great to stop by and shop through while picking up some amazing deals! This is nice to know that the shipping is already factored into the cost of the item for Prime members.

    A massive range and variety of Amazon products, along with the free shipping deals make it all the more worthwhile to shop on Amazon. Thanks for emphasizing this:)

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Farah, It is definitely nice to know that Amazon Prime members have a wide variety of products that can be purchased for a dollar with no extra shipping charge!

  10. Luke Moretti says:

    Haha I sean your 2 dollars or less post and thought that was great…a $1 page is just awesome. Great value and there were a lot more $1 Amazon products than I expected. It is amazing that there are some products that cost less than a standard 55 cent postage stamp.

    Have you tried many of these products yourself? Another great display of products. Cheers

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Luke, It is hard to imagine that anything can arrive at home for less than a stamp costs, but it’s true! 

      I have used and recommend quite a few of the products on the list — the toothpaste, floss, and soap are just some of the items that we regularly use at home. Enjoy!

  11. Misael H says:

    Holy crap! Thank you so much for providing this list for us. People like me who are just trying to find something good to sell on our websites really appreciate this type of information about what is cheap on Amazon. I love the fact that the items are all under a dollar and so affordable. Usually affordable items are the ones that sell the easiest simply all what you need is a large volume of customers. This is awesome.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Misael, That is a really interesting perspective and way to look at these affordable Amazon products. Thanks so much for sharing!

  12. Jas says:

    Thank you for sharing these useful product suggestions and affordable products on Amazon. You found a wonderful selection of products for a dollar or less. It is nice that it includes plenty of useful everyday products. Diversity is what I like best about Amazon. I particularly liked the hair mask and the revitalization. I wish you many more successes.

  13. Cynthia says:

    What a fantastic idea!!  You mention that the larger orders ship faster but there is also the $25 free shipping threshold for those who don’t pay for Prime. I have been on the “receiving end” (haha) of this problem and I never thought of throwing in some $1 items to put my cart over the line.  The items you have listed here are all everyday items so it can’t hurt to get a backup.  You’re gonna use that toothpaste anyway, right?  Thank you for posting!!

  14. AL. S. says:

    This is a great collection of Amazon products under a dollar. I’ll have to direct my wife to your site. She will especially like the makeup products. She is always looking for a good deal on these products. We are Amazon prime members and probably make an Amazon purchase at least once a week. You have a lot of good deals here. Thank you for compiling this list.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Al, Thank you so much for sharing this list of cheap amazon products with your wife. I hope that she finds lots of affordable things that she loves!

  15. LearnToEarn Admin says:

    This is a great idea to curb costs and to keep within the budget especially in the times we living in now when money is scarce and one has to rethink their spending habits. 

    To be able to obtain quality items under a dollar with free shipping can be challenging, but having this platform to browse products under $1 saves time and streamlines one’s already busy schedule.  Thanks for sharing this valuable information.
