If you already an Amazon Mom member, you should have received an email from them recently with some upcoming changes to the Amazon Mom program. Here is a portion of the email you may have received:
- Starting on January 24, 2012, the maximum discount available on diapers and wipes subscriptions will be 20%. This includes a 5% Subscribe & Save discount plus an additional 15% exclusively for Amazon Mom members who are earning free shipping benefits or have an active Amazon Prime membership.
- Customers who join Amazon Mom in 2012 will get three months of FREE Two-Day Shipping benefits. Once the initial free period is over, customers can join Amazon Prime to continue to receive full access to Amazon Mom and Amazon Prime benefits.
So, in a nutshell, in order to continue to receive Amazon Mom benefits once your initial 3 month trial period has ended, you will need to join Amazon Prime.
Amazon Prime costs $79 per year ($6.60 per month). It will be up to you to determine whether the cost is worth it to you.
In addition to the 20% off diapers and wipes through Amazon Mom and Subscribe & Save, Amazon Prime also offers these benefits:
- FREE Two-Day Shipping on millions of items.
- Unlimited instant streaming of thousands of videos with a wide range of content for the whole family.
- A Kindle book to borrow for free each month from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.
- Membership sharing benefits: invite up to four household members to share your shipping benefits for free.
Once my Amazon Mom benefits ran out last year, I opted to sign up for Amazon Prime. I take advantage of it’s benefits quite regularly and it helps off-set those purchases made with my $5 Amazon gift cards from Swag Bucks. And with our third little one arriving in May, I KNOW I will be taking advantage of that 20% Amazon Mom discount for several more years!
If you aren’t sure you will join Amazon Prime by 1/24 and want to snag some diaper deals while your benefits are still available, I’ve rounded up some deals for you:
