So what kind of deals are available online for diapers?
Then I discovered AMAZON MOMS (a section of Amazon Prime).
You get the discounted price by signing up for "Subscribe and Save" (This means you select to receive this product every X months- you pick at what interval.) Don't worry! You can CHANGE or CANCEL your order at anytime! (I always make sure there is a way out from any automatic orders before signing up)
So to compare the two, here is a short example:
I shall compare buying Pampers Swaddlers Sensitive, 156 count, Size 3 at both places:
Amazon Moms: Diapers.com:
3 months of free shipping at sign up, free shipping on orders of $49
1-2 day shipping 1-2 day shipping
(For every single order of $25 or more (You can sign up for a loyalty program
more of baby items, you earn an and save $5 on every case of diapers
additional month of free shipping, you buy
up to 1 years worth) *you can use online coupons provided
*no minimum to use free ship on by Diapers.com
$30.73 $40.48 ($43.99 + 2.99 shipping
-$5 loyalty program
-$1.50 temporary online coupon)
(The price of diapers fluctuates...when I bought these diapers from Amazon last time they cost 27.29)
*I will mention that I have not looked up prices on any other brand of diapers on either site
The kicker for me was that you can buy all kinds of household goods through Amazon Mom!
I also signed up to have Pampers Thick Care wipes, 504 count on auto order for 6 months from now. Costs $9.79.... Diapers.com doesn't have that count size, but they do have it in 360 count for $16.99, Ouch! (And shipping would not be free yet again, b/c it is less than $49)
I'm not saying this online system is right for everyone, and some people know how to get great deals in stores...Side note, If you are one of those people, would you please email me and let me know how you do it?! I've told a couple moms about Amazon Moms and they've used it and loved it. Let me know if you check it out and find that it saves you money! And I always want to hear your tips on how to save money...
So what's your method for buying diapers? (Or any baby essentials!)
