Signing up for Amazon Prime was a pretty good decision on my part (80 dollars a year for free two day shipping on most anything you can desire), and getting the Amazon credit card has already earned me $25 in rewards. Pretty sweet. Amazon Mom is probably the best of all — it’s free (unlike Prime), they don’t need any info, and it saves 15% on a whole bunch of mommy items, diapers and wipes in particular. If you sign up for Subscribe and Save, another service from Amazon that allows you to — you guessed it — subscribe to certain items, you can get another 15% off. If you can snag an Amazon coupon (often available in the Parents or Parenting magazines), you can end up getting a whole bunch of diapers for 50% off.
Since Sam has had some horrifying rashes, we’ve had to use some heavy duty creams that can stain cloth diapers or cause them to repel, so we’ve been in disposables a bunch these days. Being somewhat environmentally conscious, I prefer Earth’s Best or Seventh Generation diapers, which are manufactured without chlorine. This mostly means that they are produced in such a way that lessens impact on the environment — and for me, it means that they STINK a lot less than other brand sposies. (Next time you get next to a disposable diaper full of pee, give it a big whiff. It smells disgusting — and not like pee. Like really harsh chemicals. Blech.) Anyway, I prefer the non-chlorine brands. And they are expensive. With Amazon Mom, and Subscribe and Save, I can save 30% on a giant package of said diapers. Still expensive, but a lot better. (The 30% off on Amazon actually brings Earth’s Best size 3 to $0.18/diaper, which is the same price you would pay per diaper for the Diapers.com brand diapers. SHAZAM. And they’re better for the environment!)
So if you love saving money, go check out Amazon Mom (Subscribe and Save info is at the bottom of the page). You won’t regret it!
Welcome to the Savvy Mom Space
I’m a liberal feminist that believes that liberal, feminist ideals should gel with embracing your gender and motherhood (if that’s what you feel like doing). I support all kinds of moms and dads and parents. Oh and, although I totally love that natural vibe and not harming the environment, I supplement my organic milk and fresh fruits and veggies with the occasional Twix, the frequent Oreo, and the daily Coke Zero. I’m opinionated, not easily offended, and a loudmouth in person and on the internet. I am what I am. Welcome.
