Amazon Mom


Since I have been laid up with a broken foot and strict instructions not to walk on it for at least 6 weeks, my husband has taken over all the household chores.  I wish there was something more I could do to help him, but my options are limited.  The other day, we were looking at the ads and he commented that we needed Overnight diapers for Mason.  I looked at all the ads and pulled the coupons and price compared, but just couldn't find a deal I was happy with.  I remembered that I recently received an e-mail from about a new program, Amazon Mom.  I pulled my emails and discovered this was exactly what I needed!

Amazon Mom is a free membership program aimed at helping parents and caregivers, from the prenatal days through the toddler years.  To join Amazon Mom, simply sign into your Amazon account and provide some information about whether you are a Mom, Dad, or other caregivers of a child. By providing some optional information about your family, you will help to personalize offers, e-mails, and product recommendations for you.  What sold me was the fact that Amazon Mom 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.   I especially hate paying for shipping, so this was perfect!

Here's what I did: I price compared the number of diaper versus cost and decided to go with the Pampers Baby Dry Overnight Extra Protection Diapers, Size 4, 27-Count (Case of 4) (108-Count).  They were $36.60 for the case of 4 packs, making it about .34 per diaper.  To receive the 30% off discount on diapers and wipes, all I had to do was select the Subscribe and Save Now button on applicable items and the 30% off was applied automatically.  This brought my total down by $10.98.  Shipping was free.  On top of that, I stacked the available $5.00 gift certificate I received from using Swagbucks.  My new grand total was: $20.62.  Now, I am paying about .19 per diaper.  What a difference!

According to, benefits that Amazon Mom members receive include exclusive discounts on a variety of products and categories. Discounts and promotions that are e-mailed to your e-mail account or made available on the Amazon Mom membership page.

Benefits include:

• 30% off select diapers and wipes: As an Amazon Mom, you receive an additional 15% discount on top of the standard 15% discount on Subscribe and Save when you sign up for Subscribe & Save delivery. Subscribe & Save shipping is always free, and you can change your delivery schedule or cancel at any time. No fees, no risks, no obligations.

• FREE 2-day shipping with Amazon Prime: When you join Amazon Mom, you will receive FREE Two-Day Shipping with Amazon Prime for the first 3 months of your membership. For each $25 you spend within a single order in the Baby Store, we’ll grant you an additional month of Amazon Prime shipping benefits. You can earn up to one year from the date you joined Amazon Mom.

How to find the baby storeIt doesn't cost anything to participate in Amazon Mom, and all parents and caregivers are eligible to join.  To sign-up, visit the Amazon Mom sign-up page.  Once you submit the sign-up form, you'll receive an e-mail confirmation.  Amazon Mom is open to anyone. If your kids are older than toddlers, you can still join the program; you just may not enjoy some of the benefits that are targeted at younger children.

This program has definitely helped to make my life a little easier and it is one less thing my husband has to do.  I feel
                                                                                  like I can contribute in helping with
                                                                                  the household and I don't even have 
                                                                                  to leave the sofa!
