Lowest cost for travel from airport

I would like to travel from the airport to Sloterdijk, drop off suitcase at the hotel, then continue on the train to Centraal. Then return later in the day from Centraal back to Sloterdijk.

Should I just get 3 single trip tickets at the machine, or is there a less expensive rate ? (i.e. Day return + single ?)

Next day I need to make another trip from Sloterdijk to Centraal, but no return, as I'm going on the cruiseship.

.

Schiphol - Sloterdijk: single 3.50 euros

Sloterdijk - Centraal: return 4.60 euros

Sloterdijk - Centraal: single 2.30 euros

If you buy tickets from the ticket machines or the counter there is an extra fee of 1 euro. When you buy online, there is no fee:

but these have to be printed or downloaded in the NS app

A round trip from the airport is €8.60. Buying tickets as Floris said would only save you €0.50. We are talking cents here though.
