Do you have children in diapers? With a 10 month old and a new baby on the way – the thought of ANOTHER expense makes my head spin. Thankfully diapers & wipes have been an item where we’ve been able to save a wee bit of money. And another perk? They are delivered to our door!
Here’s the scoop on how we’re saving on diapers:
Amazon started a program several months back called Amazon Mom. With this program, you get an initial 3-month free membership to Amazon Prime. Amazon Prime gives you free 2-day shipping on ANY order size, not the standard $25. Yes, you can order a $1.99 baby food item and they’ll ship it for free. Every $25 worth of baby merchandise you purchase earns you an additional month of prime membership! If you already have an Amazon Prime membership – Amazon will refund you the amount you have left on your annual fee and kick-start this program.
In addition to the free two-day shipping, the biggest perk to me is the 30% off diapers and wipes. Here’s the dealio on what you need to do to make the 30% work for you.
Amazon has a program called Subscribe and Save. The idea is that you subscribe, Amazon gives you an additional 15% discount – you are shipped products and then you continue to receive (and are billed) for that product until you cancel at the intervals you choose. Amazon also gives you 15% for signing up for the Amazon Mom program. This 15% + 15% discount is what gives you the 30% discount.
So you have joined the Amazon Mom program and then you are surfing around for the diapers or wipes that you are wanting to purchase. When you get to a page eligible for the 30% discount – you will see an item such as this:
The top shows you that this product will extend your Amazon Prime membership.
The blue box below the product shows you that you get 30% off with Amazon Mom and Subscribe & Save.
To the right of the product you will see a purchase box – that allows you to put the diapers in your cart – or to Subscribe and Save. Choose 6 months – and then click Subscribe Now.
You will then be taken thru the purchase process immediately. Your discounted diapers or wipes will be on their way – shipped FREE 2-day.
Now here is the second part. You have signed up to have diapers delivered every 6 months, in which Amazon would bill your card. Chances are you’ll be lucky if your kid lasts in that diaper size for 2 months – 6 months is a joke! So all you have to do after you place your order is cancel the subscription. It’s simple and easy to do with a few clicks!
That’s it! Ta-da! Welcome to discounted diapers and wipes delivered to your door.
