How to Find Items SHIPPED and SOLD by Amazon



Most of the “free money” deals (ex: $10 from Chase or $10 from Citi/Discover) on Amazon apply only to items shipped and sold by Amazon.  Fortunately, Amazon ships and sells a TON of stuff, but sometimes these specific items can be difficult to identify.  I will teach you how we find these products and take advantage of the promotions to get free stuff.  We recently compiled a list of 20 travel gifts under $20, using these techniques.  Follow along…

At the top, left-hand side of the page, you should see a list of departments.  Usually, the top-level department will be the one you want.  Go ahead and click on it.  We will select “Cell Phones & Accessories.”

Step 3: Select a Seller

Scroll all the way down the left side of the page, until you see a category labeled “Seller.”  If appears on the list, simply select it.  If not, click on “+See more,” to reveal all of the sellers of your item. should appear on this list, so go ahead and select it.

**If Amazon does not appear on this list, return to Step 2 and select another department.  Unfortunately, Amazon does not sell everything, so your search may ultimately come up empty.**

Step 4: Verify the Item is Shipped and Sold by Amazon

At this point, you should be viewing a list of items which are all shipped and sold by Amazon!  Go ahead and pick whichever one you desire.  Our specific car mount should appear on this page, so find it and click the link.

While viewing the product page, you should see the words “Ships from and sold by” just under the in-stock and shipping information.  If you see these words, you are all set!  Add the item to your cart, and you should be eligible for your selected promo!
