Saving Money on Disposable Diapers and Wipes

By Molly Thornberg |

save on diapers and wipesAny mom who uses disposable diapers and wipes knows the price you pay for them the first few years of your child’s life. Sure, you can use coupons to save a few bucks. I love saving money, but I am awful at remembering to actually bring the coupons with me to the store. They sit in a stack on my kitchen island, and then expire.

With my last baby, I started using Amazon to purchase all of my diapers and wipes with their Amazon Mom program. Not only does Amazon ship the diapers and wipes for free – I also save 30% off of the price! Yes, that’s right. Diapers and wipes at my door and get them on the cheap!

Here is how you can save on diapers and wipes with the Amazon Mom program:
You will need to sign up for the Amazon Mom program. By signing up, you will receive 30% off diapers and wipes when using Amazon Subscribe and Save.  Read below for details on how to use Subscribe and Save.

How to Use Amazon Subscribe and Save

Amazon has a subscription service, called Subscribe and Save. You sign up to receive a product, in this case, diapers or wipes – and you receive  30% OFF the price of the diapers when a member of Amazon Mom (which gives you FREE shipping!).
Note: by signing up for Subscribe and Save you are registering to receive product on a subscription basis.

You can cancel anytime. I am AWFUL at signing up for things and forgetting to unsubscribe – but as many things as I have bought with this from Amazon – I have never been sent anything I didn’t want. After you purchase – you can immediately go in and cancel your subscription – so you only will receive the initial shipment – and you will still get the discounted price.

Step 1:

Shop for the diapers or wipes of your choice. Amazon has Luvs, Pampers, Huggies, Seventh Generation and more.  (referral link)

Step 2:

Click SUBSCRIBE NOW – I choose 6 months typically

Step 3:

Final Step:

  • Click on Your Account in the top right corner
  • Click on Manage Your Subscribe and Save Items
  • Click on CANCEL THIS SUBSCRIPTION (see below)

That’s it – a savings of 30% on disposable diapers and wipes and free shipping!

That’s not all – you also are eligible for Amazon Prime benefits when apart of Amazon Mom.

    This is how I save money on diapers too! I spend $25 a month on diapers. Not to bad at all!

  2. Jennifer says:

    Cheese and rice! How did I not know about this?

  3. Sara says:

    I’ve been using this service for 4 months and absolutely love it. Convenient, cheap, and have never had a problem.

  4. Libby says:

    Agreed. I’ve been using it since November and love it. You really can’t beat the prices for diapers anywhere. And it’s increased my loyalty to amazon because of the free shipping benefits. Good tutorial. It can be a little confusing at first.

  5. Roni says:

    BJ’s is still cheaper (almost 50% less) than Amazon Mom.

    I am still a member of Amazon Mom but I haven’t needed to use it yet.

  6. Proud mom says:

    This is the BEST way to buy diapers, I love it! :)

  7. Liz says:

    Sams Club is still cheaper and I make my own wipes but if you gotta have name brand and prefer to buy your wipes, this is great.
