How to Save 50% on Diapers

by How To Mommy on 03.06.11

One of our biggest expenses as new parents: diapers.  It is still amazing to me how many of these things a teeny tiny 7 pound baby can go through in one day!

I’m convinced newborns know when you’ve just changed them and wait until the new diaper has been on precisely one minute before letting out that familiar sound only for us to have to start the process all over again.

If you do the math, eight diapers a day, seven days a week, four weeks a month…it adds up.  Fast.

I was surprised to learn that you can buy diapers on Amazon (though, you can buy ANYTHING on Amazon, so I guess I wasn’t that surprised) and end up saving almost 50% than what you’d spend in other stores.

Just follow these few steps and you’ll be on your way to half-price diapers.

  1. Sign Up for Amazon Mom. Amazon has a program called Amazon Mom, where members receive benefits such as 30% off diapers and wipes, FREE Two-Day Shipping with Amazon Prime, as well as exclusive offers via e-mail, all for no charge!  So if you haven’t signed up for Amazon Mom, you need to!
  2. Choose your diapers. Search Amazon for your favorite brand and size of diapers.  For instance, Pampers Baby Dry Size 3
  3. Select the Subscribe and Save Option. Just below your “Add to Cart” option is a “Save 30% with Subscribe & Save” box.  This box allows you to select how frequently you want the items (every 1 month, 2 month, etc.).  Select your quantity and frequency and choose “Subscribe Now.” (Don’t worry, you can cancel the subscription once the order has shipped so you get the benefit of saving 30% without having to order every month or two…though it saves money, so if you need them that often there’s no need to cancel.)
  4. Save your Parenting Magazine coupons. Almost monthly, Parenting magazine has an Amazon.com diaper coupon for 20% off.  I believe other magazines do as well, but am not sure which ones.  If you don’t subscribe to Parenting, don’t worry, you can search eBay for Amazon Diaper Coupons and buy them for $ .99 and free shipping.  It’s worth it!  Enter your promo code at checkout.
  5. Checkout.  Use your Amazon Mom account and take advantage of free 2-day shipping and your diapers will be delivered to your door within the week!  No loading kids in and out of the car, no hauling large diaper boxes in the cart that’s already overloaded with kids and groceries, nothing.  The doorbell rings and you have a great supply of diapers at a great price!

I hope you enjoy your cheap diapers.  And in the time it would’ve taken to go to the store and buy them, do something for yourself – take a bath, read a magazine, paint your nails, or even take a nap!
