Another good point is I can find things on Amazon that local stores either don't carry or are always out of

The free 2-day shipping makes it worth it, even without the diaper purchases (sometimes you get the item the next day anyway! Bonus!). What a lot of people don't realize is that you get 1-day shipping for $3.99. My daughter started chewing on her crib after her nap on a Friday, and Prime wouldn't have a protector guaranteed delivered until Tuesday (since UPS doesn't operate on the weekends). I paid the 1-day shipping and got the protector FedEx-ed by 10:15 Saturday morning. Totally worth a whopping $4! I probably would have paid more driving around looking for the protector I wanted and paying sales tax, not to mention that it's much easier to click a few buttons than prep the baby for going out shopping.

As for the diapers, I haven't ordered them from Amazon, as I had stocked up shortly before signing up, but I compared prices and they're definitely cheaper for what I would be needing, and delivered right to my door! I wish I'd checked sooner!

UPDATE: I get diapers now, too, and couldn't be happier! I realized I was getting low, recently, and said I needed a sooner shipment. They arrived the next day on my doorstep. $0.14 a diaper (Pampers) and I didn't even need to get dressed! :)

I have twins and I LOVE amazon mom. The amount of diapers and wipes we go through is crazy, and getting 30% of Pampers Cruisers beats anything in any warehouse club (BJs or Costco), or Target with coupons - we easily go through 2 boxes a month so suscrive & save + amazon mom works great.

Thank you for the tip about Parents and Parenting magazine, I just checked and they're valid for about 1-2 months after the magazine is published so don't make the mistake I did and let the mags sit around unread.

I wish formula was included in the suscribe and save program - I think only a few brands are. I found Ensure Plus on the S&S which is great because I no longer skip meals like I did with my oldest. I also found Earth's Best baby food on the S&S + amazon mom program - huge assortment and better prices than Whole Foods or Babies R Us.

Amazon Mom is definitely useful. If you want to get credited for additional months of Amazon Prime privileges when you place orders over $25, be sure that you choose "Group my items into as few shipments as possible" if there are multiple items in your order. Otherwise, the system may split up your order and the totals won't be enough to qualify you for the credit.

(This happened to me twice but Amazon customer support quickly corrected the issue for me. The second time around, the agent explained why it was happening so I could avoid having it happen to me again.)

Amazon Mom is a great way to save money and can be super convenient when you need something fast but don't have the spare time to load up baby and head to the store to buy it.

Amazon Mom is the best I love the quality and the prices I buy the earth best diapers because they are environmently friendly and the biodegradeable wipes I can not find these in stores and the prices cant be beat and the convience of the subscription is awesome diffently worth it!

I am a Sam's member also, I'm sorry but Sam's prices don't even compare to Amazon's. Huggies size 3 - 204 count is currently $37.98 or $0.186/diaper; Amazon's Huggies size 3 - 156 is $22.34 with the Amazon Mom subscribe and save discount or $0.143/diaper. Huggies Snug & Dry Diapers, Size 3, 156-Count Tell me how you're saving???

Amazon Mom is THE reason I was able to get my Christmas shopping done. Like has been stated, even if you never use it for S&S or for diapers, having the Prime shipping is such a great feature. I love being able to order something and know that within 2 days it will be at my door, or the next day if it's worth the $4 for the item. If you ever buy online and don't at least give this a try, you're crazy. It's great!

I sure wish there was!! Sometimes I will do a search in "all departments" for Amazon Mom...... But a link, like the link they have for the 4 for 3 book promotion items, would be super!

My favorite part is that when I have to buy diapers, I don't go to Babies R Us and spend 10-20$ on stuff that I don't need but can't control my impulse buys :)

Im sort of torn. I used to do do prime, and although its a nice feature, it made me feel like I had to buy everything from Amazon to get my moneys worth of the prime membership. I also felt like I was buying more stuff in general because of the free shipping. The 2-day shipping is nice, but remember it is business days, so really it can be up to 4 days of shipping (this is not that important if ordering dvds but is when you need diapers). I recently started Amazon Mom, and with the prime I am getting the same feelings back. However, I found that a mortar and brick baby chain, with an online site, offers free 2 day shipping on diapers and wipes.

As far as prices and subscribe and save and such. The straight 15% off of Amazons "normal" prices are not worth it to me. Local stores, including a major baby/kid chain has cheaper diapers and wipes. Now add in the additional 15% from subscribe and save, and the price of the diapers is a couple bucks cheper on Amazon. The wipes I think are actually a little more expensive on Amazon. The nice thing about subscribe and save though, is that I get a box of diapers and wipes delivared every month at this point. Its also nice to know in the winter months, so I dont have to go out all the time.

When I priced out a national chains prices, without a coupon, but factoring in their "every 10th box of diapers free" part of their customer loyalty club, the difference in price with Amazon Mom and Subscribe and save essentially vanished. The chain also has quite a few sales of "buy two boxes get a $15-25 gift card" depending on brand/type.

For me its not really a cost savings on alot of stuff. But its more of a nice convienence. Its nice knowing that on other baby stuff that amazon does have better prices on, I am getting free 2-day shipping through prime.

As far as the $25 a month to extend free prime to one year. I found that an order larger than $25 only gave you a credit of one month, IF they all shipped together. If not you got credited more.
$100 order shipped in one box = 1 month prime extension
$100 order shipped in 4 boxes ($30, $30, $30, $20) but charged once on my credit card, gave me a 3 month extension of prime. Maybe someone can confirm or dispute this. This is how I saw it come in my emails though. But of course Amazon Mom is new so they might be tweaking it all the time until they get everything right. I would recommend simply buying around ~25 worth a day, if you have a big list and time, to extend it for a year so you dont have to worry about it.

In the end, like everything, their are pros and cons. The best thing you can do is figure out where you would typically buy diapers (including how often you get coupons and how much) and compare the price vs Amazon Mom vs Amazon Mom with subscribe and save. Prices are different city to city, state to state, etc..... Just because where I live, Amazons price does not really beat anyone elses price, it is a convinence to have some stuff delivared, even if it does not account for my entire months stock. This way I also get to use coupons and speical offers from Amazon competitors and get the best deal for myself.

I thank Amazon for the program, it is nice. There are just things I like about it and things I dont. I would definitly recommend it, simply because you get free prime for up to 1 year, and its easy to get that prime extended for one year with a couple purchases.

Even if you can get diapers a little cheaper elsewhere, Amazon Mom is worth it because it saves you countless trips to the store. I have twins and I don't have the time or energy to go around to physical shops to get the best deals. Having diapers and wipes delivered right to my door is EXACTLY what I need and completely worth it.

As the one who does all the shopping in my family, I use Amazon Mom subscriptions to buy wipes and two different sizes of diapers. The prices are cheaper than at the shopping clubs, though it's possible that coupons at the clubs make up for that. I also subscribe to diaper genie refills, conditioner for my wife, and 12 dozen jars of baby food each month. The baby food is the only item I could get as cheaply elsewhere, namely at the grocery store.

The biggest savings, though, is in having the items delivered to my door, saving me time, wear and tear on the car, and gasoline. I can't remember the last time I had to go to a gas station for a shopping trip.

I love Amazon Mom! The best thing is that they are good prices and delivered quickly. I also know that if I walk into BJ's Wholesale Club to buy diapers and/or wipes, I'm walking out with at least $100 of other stuff I probably didn't need or need yet, so I think this saves me money all around! I also get diaper genie refills. I plan to check out the toilet paper and paper towel prices to see if they are worth it.

This isn't the case, I've made countless orders through Amazon Mom (maxed out my year of Prime within 3 months of signing up with Amazon Mom) and you get 1 month of Prime credit for EVERY $25 you spend, I was able to earn 5 months alone just from purchasing my son's Graco Nautilus carseat on here, that carseat was $138. Just wanted to make it clear that you do, in fact, earn 1 month of prime for every $25 you spend in the baby department.

I LOVE amazonmom! I am using it for diapers, and with the subscribe and save, a 20% off, and a $10 off coupon I am getting a $40 box of diapers for $10.44. I have two kids in diapers and am stocking up with these coupons! Can't beat 75% off diapers! Plus the free shipping. Love it!

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 25, 2011 6:17:40 PM PST
How do/did you get a $10 coupon?

Parenting magazine has one amazon green insert every month, although this month it was 20% off diapers instead. I think Parents magazine has them too.

Had the exact same question. I received the coupon for baby wipes but didn't see anywhere to add it to my S&S wipes...anyone know?

I love amazon mom. The prices are very competitive and most of the time cheaper than in stores plus it gets shipped to the house within 2 days. With the price of gas I like to have stuff shipped to me!

Amazon Mom is the best deal on diapers! Plus, shipping is super fast! I ordered them yesterday and they got here today! Can't beat it!

You can't get free 2 day shipping with Amazon Prime when you subscribe and save anymore, even if you are an Amazon Mom member. They just started this on April 29th apparently but they still have 30% off when you subscribe and save and free 2 day Prime shipping as a benefit plastered everywhere but read the fine print, only free STANDARD shipping is available. I can't get my diapers in 2 days anymore, it will take a full week. Yep, a week. I have enough for about 3 days so I guess I'm going to have to buy some at the store. I've been an Amazon Mom member for 10 months now and buy all my diapers here.

So plan ahead if you need to order diapers soon!!!!! Still a good deal but I'm really not happy about the misleading statements they make about the "benefits". You can either get the 30% off for subscribe and save OR not subscribe and save and get free 2 day Prime shipping.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 28, 2011 12:29:10 AM PDT
You cant use the 2 day shipping on subscribe and save items anymore. You have to wait atleast a week before getting your items.

I just used it today and it told me 2 day prime shipping was free! :)
