Secret to Saving on Baby Basics: Learn to Maximize Amazon Savings

Baby Bargain Mondays with Amazon Mom

If you have to buy diapers, wipes, or formula in your local store, I definitely recommend using a site like Planning Family to stock up printable baby coupons, or subscribe to one of the free baby magazines like American Baby, to get more clipped coupons. But – the BEST way to save money on baby basics is by signing up for an Amazon Mom account, and taking advantage of the Subscribe and Save options.

What is Amazon Mom?

Amazon Mom is a FREE account on Amazon.com – And it gets you FREE 2-Day Amazon Prime Shipping on your purchases! How cool is that, right? Here’s how to sign up for an account:

  • Go to Amazon.com, and click on “Your Account” on the top right side.
  • Scroll down to the section called “Settings” – Then look for the option to enroll in Amazon Mom Membership.
  • When you click that, you go to a screen with a few basic questions – then bam! You are set up with a new Amazon Mom account – Easy peasy.
{Ok – UPDATE ALERT!!! – I’m being told that there is currently a wait list to get into the Amazon Mom program. This is SUPER weird, since it’s a membership – not something that can “run out”, you know? But – It’s definitely worth signing up for, and I hope none of you have to wait very long – it’s SUCH an awesome way to save. If you are able to sign up without a wait list, let me know when it changes! Thank you to the awesome ladies who informed me of this new change!!}

Subscribe and Save

On many items like Diapers, wipes, and formula – You’ll see the regular option to purchase, then an option to “subscribe and save” right underneath of that. When you subscribe, you set up an automated shipment of that product – but you get it at a big discount! So, if you know that you go through 3 packages of baby wipes a month, you set up a new 12 pack shipment to arrive every 4 months. AND – you can cancel that shipment anytime, with no penalties – it’s super simple.

Here’s an example of the savings:

You need diapers, and maybe you’re using the Gifts to Grow rewards program, so you buy the Pampers Baby Dry Diapers Economy Pack. It’s always cheaper to buy diapers in bulk – This package of 192 is only $47 dollars, which is .25 per diaper. Not bad, but we can do better!

  • First, switch from One-Time Delivery to Subscribe and Save – It brings the cost of the diapers down to $37.75 – a savings of 20%, bringing the diapers down to only .20 cents per diaper.
  • Next – you’ll often find coupons after you sign up for Amazon Mom – Like this one on the Pampers:¬†“Save $1.00 with this Coupon –¬†Clip this coupon to save $1.00 on this product when you buy from Amazon.com.”
  • Click the button to “Clip” that coupon – You just saved another dollar!

Using this great Amazon feature saves you time, since you don’t have to keep running out to the store to buy more diapers, saves you a ton of money, and if you buy Pampers – the points from these big boxes of diapers earn you FREE Shutterfly Photo Packages with Pampers Gifts to Grow. You can’t get much better than that, right?

Baby Bargain Mondays

Every Monday is Baby Bargain Monday on Amazon – with loads of great deals on baby stuff like cribs, car seats, and toys – so it’s a great time to shop. Make sure to look for the “Lightning Deals” on baby goods every Monday too – You’ll find some amazing prices.

Free Amazon Credits

When you use sites like Swagbucks, MySurvey, or MyView, you can cash in and build up a ton of free Amazon Gift Card credits too – which can make some of these awesome deals totally free! I have bought almost all of Abby’s diapers and wipes on Amazon, and most of her toys too – and I’ve paid cash for less than half of that. Learning how to maximize your Amazon savings is the BEST way I have found to save money on baby basics.

  1. I dont understand why there is a waiting list for Amazon Mom, but I’m on it and wish I would be ‘accepted’ soon

  2. You can’t become a member to Amazon Mom right now; Only on the waitlist. I have been on the waitlist for months now.

      That is SO weird – I’ve never heard of them having a waitlist!!

      When I signed up – It’s been over a year ago now, it was like signing up for Amazon Prime or something – You just filled it out, and bam! you were in. You’re only allowed to be enrolled for a year, so we aged out of it. I was so addicted to the Free 2-Day shipping that I had to go sign up for the Amazon Prime afterwards :)

      What a bummer though – I guess I’ll need to update the post to let people know…. I had NO idea that they did a waitlist? I wonder why…. It’s not like they can “run out” of memberships, you know?

      Thanks for letting me know!!
