Prices are comparable up front but they have a 5% discount for less than 5 items or 15% off with 5 or more items that month. Stack a 5 point/$ Citi Forward or this quarters 5% chase bonus and it seems to work out for me.
To go along with what agp mentioned; I live in the country so driving around to a large B&M to get misc items can get costly in gas. I try to set aside a friday afternoon to head to town to purchase the next weeks groceries and any necessities that come up.
I do subscribe and save but only for the discount and then cancel the subscription right after I receive the first shipment.
You'll often see deals for Amazon S&S items on deal hunting sites like Slickdeals. I've definitely gotten things like toothpaste, cereal, laundry detergent, etc for cheaper than what it costs in a local store.
