cheapest way to buy diapers: amazon!

even though i am cheap/frugal, i am not a huge coupon person because it takes too much time and seems like too much of a hassle.  however, there is one coupon worth the time--Amazon Diapers!

over the last few months, i've only bought diapers and wipes from amazon and saved about 50% or more off the cheapest price i can find anywhere else.  for example, twice this month i bought this 720 ct. Pampers wipes for $3.43!  (originally $25). 

here's the breakdown:
amazon sale price: $19.19
-amazon $10 coupon: (10.00)
-amazon mom subscribe & save promo (5.76)
= $3.43 with no tax and free shipping!
where do you find these coupons?  the amazon mom promotion for 30% subcribe & save is free.  i always sign up to receive the diapers once every 6 months and then make sure i cancel it sometime in the next few moths.

the following magazines often have the $10 off or 20% off coupons (photos below):
*baby talk
*american baby
*fit pregnancy

i ordered a 3 year subscription to parenting for $6 a few months ago (if i see another deal like this i'll post it, but i've heard of several similar promos), so a coupon comes in that almost every month.  subscriptions for babytalk are also free, so i get that one as well (besides the coupons, i enjoy reading these magazines as well).

i found coupons in magazines in the doctor's office this month, dentist office & hair salon, so i'd suggest searching for free ones there.  here is what the coupons look like:

good luck finding the coupons and happy shopping!  i'm excited to use my stockpile of diapers and wipes as baby gifts for some upcoming showers.  with a little time, these coupons make diapers/parenting very affordable!

I totally agree, Silvy. Amazon is where we buy all our diapers/wipes/nursing supplies. Another way to save is to buy "used" diapers. Basically, the box is just messed up. I bought a box of diapers for $23 that is normally $45. The only difference was that the box was taped! I'll have to check out those coupons though!

Thanks for the tip, Silvy! I use for the cash back, but I've never even thought to use Amazon! What a great idea! Thanks for sharing.

I use amazon for our diapers as well! It's such a great deal. I've compared buying them from amazon and buying them elsewhere with various coupons and amazon is always better. Also, if you spend at least $25 dollars and you have joined amazon mom, you get an additional free month of prime, which provides free shipping. I've done enough that I have a free year of prime! It's great!!

I've never seen those Amazon coupons! That is awesome. Have you been using them for long?

We have a year of free Amazon Prime (through some student promotion), which has come in handy on several occasions.
