Last night we had a little baby shower for my niece (yes, somehow I’m old enough to have a niece old enough to be a mom, weird huh?). While we were there I let her in on the secret of Amazon Mom. One of my sisters-in-law was so sad that I hadn’t told her about this sooner that I decided it ought to be my first “Smarter not Harder” post. Here’s the secret – if you go to Amazon.com and go to their Amazon Mom page (or just click on the banner at the top of this post) you can sign up to have diapers auto delivered to your house, at a price cheaper than I’ve seen in any store. Plus you get Amazon Prime benefits (i.e. Free 2 day shipping) for one year after you start your membership. It doesn’t cost anything to join, they won’t auto-enroll you in an Amazon Prime membership at the end of your year or anything like that. You just order the kind of diapers that you want and they deliver them to your home. For me I’m signed up to get two boxes of Daniel’s diapers (Pampers Swaddlers Diapers Big Pack Size 1 92 Count – $17.14/19 cents per diaper) every month, and 1 box of Sam’s diapers (Pampers Baby Dry Size 4 Diapers Economy Pack Plus 192 Count – $30.73/$0.16 per diaper) every other month. You get a 15% discount for enrolling in Amazon Mom, and another 15% discount for signing up for their auto-ship program. If you don’t like it you can even cancel the auto-ship immediately after ordering. It’s awesome, not only for the savings, but also because I never run out of diapers and I never have to sit at the store wondering if we have enough diapers to make it until our next Costco run 🙂
Anyways, that’s my cool trick of the day. If you have a child in diapers you really ought to be signed up for Amazon Mom. It’s way less hassle than couponing, and from what I’ve seen couponing doesn’t give you nearly the savings that this does. Oh, and did I mention they deliver the diapers to your house?! It doesn’t get much better than that!
