Living in a small town, access to the organic food, grain and health and beauty ingredients I use in my kitchen, every day, is extremely limited. Groceries that can’t typically be purchased in a rural community, can reach my doorstep quickly, even overnight, if I purchase them with my Amazon Prime account. I utilize this option, often, and can’t really imagine functioning without it. It’s a budget-friendly way of accessing products we need for our family and home without the expense of driving into the city. Let’s just say that as a blogger who does reviews, and a wife and mom who has limited access to a variety of products, I have gotten to know my UPS and FedEx delivery drivers, pretty well.
My #AmazonCart experience, through #CollectiveBias was simple and quick. This video shows how I added the spice grinder to my Amazon shopping cart, while I was working. I was on my laptop, but it works from all your electronics — phones, tablets and computers!
Amazon saves me time and saves me money. That’s exactly what I need at this busy stage of my life. And now, Amazon has made it even easier for me to cross things off my shopping list, even if I’m working. Their new #AmazonCart hashtag for Twitter is fantastic! I was scheduling some client syndication on Twitter this morning and several product photos caught my attention as I worked. I realized that the Twitter/Amazon project, that will allow me to place items in my Amazon shopping cart from my Twitter feed, must be up and running. It was so easy to just reply to the tweets that linked to product I wanted for posts, and for my kitchen. I replied to the tweets they were featured in, with #AmazonCart. Next, thing I know, I had a notification on Twitter that the items (a Krups electric spice grinder and a pineapple corer/slicer) were waiting in my cart at Amazon. The nice thing about this new #AmazonCart on Twitter is that the items being featured are often on sale or on a featured deal campaign, so I save even more than I would have if I had simply waited to shop another day. It also jogs my memory and reminds me of things I need to shop for. When my work was finished, I clicked over to Amazon and completed the checkout process with my Amazon Prime account. I LOVE Amazon Prime! Quick two-day shipping, every day, and even overnight service for a low $3.99 per item if I’m in a hurry.
We don’t have to wait for Amazon to tweet out great products, though. We can tweet them to each other! When we find something we love or that we know our friend has been searching for, all we have to do is tweet the link to them. They can reply with #AmazonCart, and VOILA!Twitter and Amazon just combined my work world with my home world and made keeping up with both of them a whole lot simpler. How much time and money will YOU be able to save with #AmazonCart? Watch this video and then go see for yourself! You’re going to love it!
