After posting my February goals and how I did many of you e-mailed asking how I got such a great deal on the box of 234 Pampers Swaddlers?
I'm here to divulge my secrets!
First I will start by saying I ONLY order my diapers and wipes. And I stockpile. If I find a good deal I usually go ahead and buy it in the next size up. I also only use Pampers for Trey because they seem to fit him best but every baby is different. We use Huggies and Pampers wipes - either works great for us.
Here is how I got the above box for $11.99 total, shipped to my door the next day. (This box in particular, was a shower gift for my neighbor.)
1. Join Amazon Moms - It's free! Like totally 110% free. No strings attached. And it gets you Amazon Prime (hello, free shipping) for free!
Here is what it says on the FAQ page: "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."
That Amazon Prime gets extended with qualifying purchases in the "Baby Store" and you can use the free shipping on anything, not just for things baby-related.
2. When you go to order the diapers you are going to want to sign up for "Subscribe and Save" to score 30% off your purchase. You can cancel at any time. (I wait for my box to show up and then I cancel the subscription)
3. Go through your Parents, Baby Talk, Parenting: The Early Years magazines, etc (I'm sure I'm leaving out some!) and look for these green postcard looking inserts.
They will get you 20% off diapers or a $10 off code. You CAN combine these!! If you don't get these magazines I suggest you sign up. Look for a deal on Parents - and some of the other ones are actually free subscriptions.
Amazon's prices fluctuate some but you are still bound to get a great deal if you combine all of these steps.
Here is how the transaction would work-
If I were to order this box today:
A box of 234 Pampers Swaddlers: $43.99
Using Subscribe & Save: $30.79
Minus the 20% off coupon: $24.64
And less the $10.00 coupon code: $14.64
(That equals .06 per diaper instead of .19 per diaper at full price!)
Most of us won't get charged tax, no shipping fee with Prime and the last box I ordered around 11am showed up the next day!
Not too shabby huh?
Let me know if you have any questions or need help. I know this seems confusing at first but I promise it gets easier as you do it.
