We're not sure of what your plans are for the next few days, what with the July 4th holiday on the horizon. If you are going out of town, have a good, safe time.
If you're staying in we're sure that will be fun, too. But you know what would make it even better? Finding great deals on things you need to buy.
Along those lines, did you know Amazon has coupons? Indeed, the popular online retailer offers an old-school approach to saving money.
There are many to choose from
Amazon already offers some pretty good prices, but with coupons you can save even more. Some are available only to Prime members, but still, savings is savings.
Much like standard coupons, Amazon's coupons are offered mostly on household goods that you would likely be buying anyway. The page itself lists everything that has a coupon, though you may find it time consuming to sort through it all.
The good news is if you are signed into your Amazon Prime account, items you search for that have one will display the option right on the page. Items with available coupons will have a coupon note on the product's page right under the price. Make sure the box to the right of the orange coupon icon is checked. It looks like this:
Note: Not all coupons are 5 percent off. Some are a dollar value or a different percentage.
Anyway, here are some of the things you will find good deals on right now.
Get a Bluetooth scale
With summer here many of us want to get in the best shape possible, and a great way to track progress is the RENPHO Bluetooth Body Fat Scale. It's FDA approved, digital and able to sync with Apple Health, Google Fit and the Fitbit App.
The scale will show 11 measurements, including body weight, BMI and body fat percentage. Listed for $29.99, a 10-percent discount will be applied at checkout with a coupon.
How about a Bluetooth speaker?
If you are hanging out by the pool or the lake, something that would make the day better is music. The OontZ Angle 3 ULTRA speaker is perfect, with its 100-foot Bluetooth range and great sound quality.

Replace that barely-functional mouse
Remember when computer mice were simple accessories, with a couple of buttons to click and that was it? These days they can be pretty intense, with scroller wheels and extra buttons to change various settings.
Maybe you are looking to jump into a newer style, or perhaps you are replacing a broken mouse. Either way, the VicTsing MM057 2.4G Wireless Mouse is a great option, especially for someone who is often on the go.
Designed to feel good in the hand and be extremely durable, it is normally $9.99 but you can save an extra 5 percent with a coupon.
