Amazon + Whole Foods + Amex = Easy $20 Savings Delivered

Amazon Prime has changed the landscape of shopping for many of us. Add Prime Now – a delivery service – and some of us may never go to the grocery store again. Okay, maybe you will go to the grocery store again, but here’s an easy way to save $20 AND get your groceries delivered.

It’s not big news any longer but Amazon bought Whole Foods. I don’t personally notice much of a savings since their big hype about prices going down, but now you can save some cash by ordering delivery through Amazon at Whole Food and paying with your Amex card. I did it today!


  • Go to 
  • Load a minimum of $20 of items into your cart
  • Proceed to checkout
  • Sign in to your Amazon Prime account
  • Choose a delivery time frame [2 hour windows]
  • Choose to use your Amex card for payment 


  • When you check out put AMEX20 in as your promo code
  • Complete payment and wait for your groceries to show up on your doorstep. Here is the fine print of the offer. The key here is you have to use your Amex Card and be a current Amazon Prime member. It was super easy!

The Boulder Public Library offers free access to tons of books for adults and kids alike. If you use a reader, this is a great resource! We try to buy used books, but now that at least 3 people in our family have eReaders that is tougher. We can’t go to the Bookworm or the Boulder Bookstore. We cannot borrow from friends. Instead we felt like we were stuck buying the books for ourselves and our kids through Amazon. I started looking for more options and I found that the Boulder, Lafayette & Louisville Public Libraries offer access to a lot of great books for our readers online. Score!

Here’s how to download FREE eBooks:

  1. Get your library card ready [you will need your number]
  2. Head to the Boulder Public Library’s website
  3. Click on the link on the top right that says eBooks [link here]:Screen Shot 2013-07-15 at 8.39.13 AM
  4. That will send you to the Front Range Downloadable site. Click on the “Children’s Titles” section. You can choose between Children’s Fiction or Nonfiction & Teen Fiction or Nonfiction.
  5. There are simply tons of great titles that you can “borrow” for a week. This is a screen shot from the site.

I poked around a bit and found that most of the titles were available. If you or your kids are reading on an eReader this is a great cost saving resource for your whole family! Thanks, Boulder Public Library!!!!
