I love the convenience of shopping online and having things delivered right to my door, but I don’t love paying for shipping. I love discounts, but I dislike clipping coupons. It seems that now I’ve found exactly what I wanted – online shopping with significant discounts and free shipping!
I bought diapers from Diapers.com for over a year, maybe even two. Sometimes they had sales, and shipping was free for orders over $49, but mainly it was convenient. With 2 kids in diapers, the diapers filled up the entire cart when I went shopping for them. There was no room for groceries or anything else, well except maybe a few packs of wipes. So, I paid for convenience.
Occasionally, I went to a discount store to save money on diapers, but I also sacrificed quality, and cheap diapers just don’t agree with my youngest daughter’s skin. Back to Diapers.com I went.
Then one day, I accidentally stumbled across something that said “Amazon Mom Program”, and how I wish I would’ve discovered it years ago! With Amazon’s Subscribe & Save Program, you get free shipping and 15% off your purchases. The Amazon Mom program also gives you a 15% discount. Combined, that’s a 30% discount and free shipping on their already-low prices!
How do you qualify for the Amazon Mom program? Just be a mom. There’s no fee, no obligation, nothing. Just be a mom.
I now get 2 cases of Seventh Generation brand chlorine-free diapers delivered to my door each month for only around $27 per case. Wipes? Pampers Thick Care unscented wipes cost me less than $10 per case. That’s with my 30% discount and free shipping. Like I said before, I wish I had known about this years ago!
I’m sure that’ll save some of you money on diapers, but if your children are potty trained, you can still save money at Amazon. I have cereal bars, powdered milk, chocolate peanut butter (yeah, I loooooove Peanut Butter & Co Dark Chocolate Dreams), organic tortilla chips, and more on my Subscribe & Save list. Who knew a retailer known for selling books would have so much else to offer?!
