Amos Advantage is an online store directed at hobbyists, including stamp, coin, automotive and craft enthusiasts. It mainly sells informative books and accessories for collectors. The site is one fact of Amos Media, which originated with General James Amos in 1876.
Amos Media began in Shelby County, Ohio, as a commercial printing and broadsheet newspaper firm. In 1942, the company began printing Linn's Stamp News, which was aimed at stamp collectors. In 1960, it launched Coin World Magazine. In 1978, it acquired Cars & Parts Magazine, and in 2006, it began printing Craft Ideas. These four publications form the basis of the four categories in their Amos Advantage online store.
In addition to books on collecting and crafting, Amos Advantage offers tools to organize and display collections. The craft section of the store offers fabric and paint selections, while the automotive section offers art prints of cars and shirts
Amos Advantage offers a discount program for subscribers to these magazines. While products are available to all customers at the regular retail price, the website includes a designated Amos Advantage price that is available to all customers with a valid subscription. The site provides a toll-free number to purchase subscriptions and an option to purchase online.
