I was just telling a friend on facebook about this program, and thought I should share it here as well. I am always amazed at how many people don’t know about this amazing, FREE program that saves you money and makes your life easier. (Two things that we Blind Wives strive for in just about everything we do!) I didn’t find out about it until my youngest was almost 3 yrs old. I remember when my friend told me about it, and I thought it was too good to be true.
Here’s the description according to their website:
“Amazon Mom is a free membership program created especially for parents and caretakers of small children. Amazon Mom members receive benefits such as three months of FREE Two-Day Shipping with Amazon Prime, 20% off diapers and wipes which are auto-delivered to your doorstep with Subscribe & Save and other promotions geared toward parents.”
The Amazon Prime membership alone makes it well worth tiny effort it takes to sign up. (Amazon Prime is where you get free 2-day shipping on just about anything that ships from Amazon.) You get 3 free months when you first sign up, and after you get your first auto-delivery of diapers, you get another three months. I think you can do that another 2 times for a total of one year free!
All the discounts are great, like 5% off certain household supplies, 15% off of certain grocery supplies, and exclusive limited time discounts, but the BEST part is the 20% off of disposable diapers and wipes (with the auto-delivery service). Here’s how much you can save:
The Pampers size 4 pack of 192 diapers frome is only $37! At Walmart, the pack of 160(ish) size 4 diapers is $47. That’s quite a savings! The Huggies pack of 140 is only $27, where at Walmart, the same exact box is $34. It’s pretty awesome.
I also really enjoyed the auto-shipping. We never had to run out to the store to get diapers. We were getting them monthly for a while, but then I started cloth diapering Oliver when he was about 3, so I just changed the auto-shipment to once every 6 months since I didn’t need them monthly anymore. You always have the freedom to cancel a shipment without penalty, so if you don’t need diapers when the next shipment is coming up, you won’t lose your benefits or the discount price so long as you only cancel that one shipment, and not the whole subscription.
If you exclusively cloth diaper, I think there are still enough benefits to make it worth signing up. Every little bit helps, right?
