Penny-Pinching: Diapers to Your Door
OK, all buyers of diapers, this is unreal. Prepare to be amazed.
I have been buying Walmart's store-brand diapers for four years. I know, generic isn't always as good as name brand, but they have worked well enough!
But I'm switching things up here...here is an online deal on diapers that's too good to pass up!
Here's what I did:
1. Go to amazon mom and register for free here. This saves you 15% off amazon's list price.
2. Log in, choose the diapers you want.
3. Sign up for Subscribe and Save. It's on the right hand side of the screen. This saves you ANOTHER 15% off the list price. Subscribe and Save means you sign up to get free automatic shipments of the product, at an interval you choose. For example, I am subscribing to receive a box of Huggies once a month. You will pay as you go, and can cancel any time.
Now, your diapers are 30% off.
Oh, by the way, you'll get your diapers for free, 2-day shipping.
4. I don't know if this will work for you, but I got an EXTRA 10% discount coupon code in my email, since I didn't order immediately after opening my account. I guess they wanted to lure me...it worked!!!
Here's the price breakdown:
1 box Parent Choice Diapers from Walmart, size 4: $14.97 for 82 diapers = $.18 per diaper
1 box Huggies from Walmart, size 4: $33.59 for 82 diapers = $.41 per diaper
1 box Huggies from amazonmom, ordered as above: $18.13 for 140 diapers = $.14 per diaper
(this is the price with the one-time 10% discount, but even without that discount, amazon is still cheaper than store-brand diapers from Walmart...and a lot cheaper than Huggies from the store! Wow!)
Even if I only save 1 cent per diaper, that really adds up over the years...especially when I've been diapering non-stop for the last 4 1/2 years!!!
Plus, now I don't have to lug big boxes through Walmart and out to my car...they come right to my door. Sounds like luxury to me.
That is, of course, somebody out there wants to come over and do the changing for me...
Now that sounds like luxury.
