Shopping with an Amazon coupon is a smart move, but not a good one, a new study finds.
The findings, published by a non-profit organization called the Consumer Price Index, show that shoppers are paying more for toys with a coupon.
The study used Amazon.com’s coupons and discount codes, and found that the average dollar value of the toys purchased with an annual coupon was $4.36, compared to $1.88 for toys that did not have one.
Amazon says that the discounts are for the benefit of retailers, not consumers, but the study found the coupons were still valid for toys sold on Amazon and other retailers.
The results also showed that the toy buyers who had coupons were spending more than those who did not.
Those who purchased toys with coupons were also spending more on toys that didn’t have a coupon than those that did, the study showed.
The authors of the study noted that online shopping is “a powerful way for consumers to save money on goods and services, while still making the purchase.”
But not everyone thinks shopping with an in-person coupon is worth it.
A few shoppers who regularly shop at online retailers, and who don’t have access to an online store, found the results disappointing.
A friend who lives in the Bay Area told The Associated Press that the results are good, but she said she feels the toy manufacturers have a right to their discount codes and that they should be made available to consumers who don.
“I can’t say I’m disappointed that they didn’t do that, but I don’t feel like it’s fair to them,” said the friend, who asked not to be identified because she did not want her family to know about the study.
