These Puzzles All Cost Less Than $5 — Stock Up On A Few For Hours Of Wallet-Friendly Fun

Amazon

Jigsaw puzzles are a great way for kids and adults to pass the time, and the best jigsaw puzzles under $5 range in difficultly levels and feature some wonderfully weird artwork — with shipping costs that won’t break the bank. If you’re looking for budget-friendly puzzles, Amazon has lots of fun options that can improve memory, boost problem-solving skills, and put you in a good mood as you assemble them.

While you can find a lot of the best cheap jigsaw puzzles for just a few bucks on Amazon, not many of them include free shipping, and the total cost ends up being a bit more than five dollars. And in some cases, puzzles are on sale for a mere penny — of course, those puzzles tend to have higher shipping costs, so you'll want to factor that in.

As for size, I’ve included options ranging from quick and easy 150-piece puzzles to challenging 1,000-piece picks. These puzzles can also entertain a wide range of ages — starting as young as 6 years old — so there are sure to be a few options for the whole family to enjoy.

No matter what kind of puzzle you prefer, these are the best jigsaw puzzles under $5 that’ll challenge and entertain you. They're so wallet-friendly, you might just pick up a few to keep the fun rolling.
