When Amazon first started out, they primarily offered only books on their online site.
Now they have several thousand other types of products, including food!
Amazon also offer various types of products and services in partnership with various companies in their ‘Amazon Local Deal’ vouchers scheme.
Now, if you are interested in increasing income, sometimes it is not about selling products to make money, but saving on spending.
For example this week we are going to spend a few days away in west Wales, staying in a country hotel.
We have purchased an Amazon Local voucher. The voucher includes a two night stay for two, with scones on arrival, a Welsh breakfast each morning and a three-course meal. We paid £99, but the break has a value of £248 – what a deal!
And that’s not all: there are several offers for all manner of goodies. We often purchase vouchers from Amazon Local, often spending a fraction of the ‘normal’ price for a range of activates and products, including sea fishing, archery and clay pigeon shooting.
Life is not all about work, work, work: it important to recharge batteries.
Life is so busy that its sometimes not possible to sit and take time out to create new ideas to improve lifestyles.
Experts tell us that getting the balance right between work and rest is important to our long-term health.
We find that when feeling refreshed its often possible to think of new strategies or products to make money that might pass us by if we feel stressed out doing everyday stuff without taking a break.
When on our breaks away from everyday stuff, we love to walk in the countryside, or if staying by the coast, the Welsh coastal path.
When we walk, we talk – often allowing all types of ideas to flow, many of which get implemented to create new business ideas and strategies that result in increased income.
Thus, in the interest of recharging batteries and increasing work flow, I often purchase vouchers to treat myself to a feel good deal, such as hair dressing, manicures, and spa days – spending far less than it’d cost should I book without vouchers.
You can also purchase special meal deals such as this one: Three-course menu at Jamie’s Italian – £20…

Many vouchers do apply to London, but you are able to register for vouchers where you live.
The offers available change daily and can save a fortune over the year on vouchers for special occasions and fun events.
You can even buy a title: ‘Become a laird, lord or lady with a Scottish plot of land for only £15!’
Best of all, if you have a lovely break or other deal, tell your friends: if you promote Amazon Local deals and your friends subscribe and purchase a deal, you will accrue points that will give you a discount on further deals, saving you even more money!
Subscription is free, so why not treat yourself to a special break, holiday, a gift or fun day out?
