Amazon Basics Rechargeable Batteries

Amazon Basics offers batteries, including industrial and rechargeable batteries, that are an affordable option to more expensive, name-brand alternatives.

Julie Ramhold, consumer analyst with DealNews.com, recommends purchasing the Amazon Basics brand for shoppers who need AA or AAA batteries in bulk, especially if you don't have a warehouse club nearby to shop at.

SF Bay Coffee OneCUP Flavored Variety Pack

Ramhold recommends a variety pack of the SF Bay Coffee OneCUP pods for coffee enthusiasts who enjoy a variety of flavors, like French vanilla and hazelnut creme, or those interested in trying a new type of coffee before deciding if they want to make a permanent switch.

Purchasing a variety pack for a little under $23 means each coffee pod comes out to slightly under 60 cents per pod. Ramhold said the pods are also compostable, allowing you to indulge in your morning coffee fix with less guilt than other pods.

Jenna Helwig, food director at Real Simple, puts a scoop of this flavorless powder in her coffee every morning to support her hair, nail and joint health.

"I like buying it from Amazon since I can set up a subscription and have a new canister arrive like clockwork every month," Helwig said.

Cuisinart Chef's Classic Stainless Nonstick 8-Inch Open Skillet

As more Americans continue dining in to fight inflation costs, kitchens need to be equipped with the necessary, affordable cookware to cover everyone's meal prep needs.

Helwig, who does most of her cooking in stainless or cast-iron pans, said these types of pans wear out more quickly. Inexpensive pan alternatives, like this nonstick skillet, are inexpensive, ideal for cooking eggs and seafood and easy to get a new one fast via Amazon.

Amazon Echo (4th Gen)

While shoppers can purchase most Amazon devices, including the Echo and Kindle, at other stores, Ramhold said more often than not you'll find better deals on these devices by shopping directly through Amazon.

"Not only will you find better prices generally, but you may also be able to take advantage of special offers for longer free trials of services like Amazon Music or Kindle Unlimited," Ramhold said.
