Amazon Super Save & Free Shipping Search Trick

If you’re an Amazon Prime user or just enjoy free shipping (and who doesn’t) you might get frustrated by the fact that Amazon doesn’t seem to offer the ability to search for Amazon-only products.  Sure, filtering by used/new can help slim down the results, but you’re still looking at whole lot of listing if you’re performing a search on popular terms.  Here is one way to force the search to a nearly pure Free Shipping / Amazon as Provider result:

  • Perform a normal search using the simple search box on Amazon’s front page
  • Once the search results return complete, add the following variable to the end of the search URL: &emi=ATVPDKIKX0DER
  • Hit enter and you should a refined search page with nearly all Free Shipping / Amazon as Provider subset of your first search.

Example: BEFORE and AFTER

Doesn’t seem to work in every single case, but it did help whittle down results nicely in quite a few categories that I experimented with. A bit clumsy but might save you scrolling through dozens of pages of results, at least until/if Amazon adds a feature like this to their advanced search page. Seems like a no-brainer value-add with all the pushing of Amazon Prime subscriptions, but we’ll see.
