Are you ready to become the savviest shopper you know? These store discount programs are your ticket to substantial savings and fab freebies.

1. Amazon Prime: the VIP club of online shopping

Cost: $14.99 per month

Picture this: You’re chilling on your couch, sipping your drink of choice, and your orders arrive at your doorstep faster than you can say “free shipping.” Bam! Welcome to Amazon Prime. It would almost be creepy if it weren’t so irresistibly convenient.

It’s not just about getting things delivered super fast, either. It’s a whole entertainment package with Prime Video, Prime Music, and Prime Reading. 

Yeah, there’s a fee, but if you use everything it offers it more than pays for itself. Exclusive deals, special Prime Day discounts, free-same day or next-day shipping… it’s a baller shopping experience all the way.

The monthly cost is $14.99. If you consider that each order would normally cost about $3 to ship, and movies or shows usually cost at least $2.99, you’ll cover the membership cost if you place 3 orders and watch 2 movies per month.

2. Target RedCard: the red-hot shopping companion

Cost: $0

Target RedCard is a shopping secret weapon in your wallet. Whether you choose the debit or credit card version, you get 5% off on most of your Target purchases. Unlike some other card-based programs, there are no annual or monthly fees.

Another bonus is that it goes beyond just a store discount—every time you use your RedCard (as long as you’re signed in), you’ll earn 1% cash back!

Beyond just the deals, you get free two-day shipping on most items, and an extra 30 days for returns. It’s basically like being BFFs with Target and getting special treatment.

3. Walmart+

Cost: $12.95 per month

Walmart+ is a membership program that offers special savings and cool tools to help streamline your shopping experience. You get special member savings in-store and online, and discounted pricing at participating gas stations. Plus, you get $50 in Walmart Cash just for signing up. 

Walmart+ benefits go beyond just savings. Other perks include free delivery of your online orders, and access to Scan & Go, which lets you scan in-store items with the app as you shop, so you can pay without even waiting in line. How cool is that?

4. CVS ExtraCare: the coupon king

Cost: $0

CVS ExtraCare is your ticket to all sorts of coupons and rewards. Every time you shop, you earn ExtraBucks Rewards, which are basically free CVS money. It’s all very extra.

ExtraCare also gives you personalized coupons based on what you buy, and sometimes even free gifts. It’s like CVS is creating a special custom shopping experience just for you. And let’s not forget the ExtraCare Beauty Club and Pharmacy & Health Rewards—it’s the drugstore rewards program that keeps on giving.

5. Kohl’s Cash: the dynamic duo of deals

Cost: $0

Kohl’s has combined  Kohl’s Rewards with Kohl’s Cash to create a supercharged savings program. Every dollar you spend turns into Kohl’s Rewards points, and those points turn into actual dollars you can spend on anything you want at Kohl’s.

And then there’s the Kohl’s Cash part. You earn a whole $10 on every $50 you spend. Plus, you can get other discounts and invitations to special sales. So the Kohl’s Cash and the savings just keep on coming.

The bottom line
