It’s been a year since Amazon introduced their Amazon Mom program, where you got an extra 15% off baby items, including the biggest baby item expense of all: diapers!
I signed up a few weeks after the program was introduced and it has been an absolute lifesaver. I’m curious, though, if anybody that signed up from the get-go knows what Amazon might be doing.
The initial sign-up granted you three months of the extra 15% off items in the subscribe-and-save program (which granted you 15% off to begin with, for a total of 30% off), as well as free Prime benefits so that you could enjoy free 2-day shipping on many items. You could extend that for up to a full year by making regular purchases in the baby store. This means that you could earn up to a full year of benefits.
Well, looking at my calender, I can see that we have a few weeks to go, but was wondering if anybody could chime in who was among the first to sign up, which according to what I could see, would have been about a week ago. Knowing what’s happening will certainly help with planning whether we should buy a bunch of stuff before our extra 15% ends.
I guess I would see Amazon’s options as:
- Allow more months to accumulate with the same benefits (extra 15% plus free Prime)
- Allow the extra 15% to continue but remove the free Prime shipping benefits
- Make you pay to be part of the program, which could get you the 15% and discounted Prime shipping
- Let it expire altogether, in which case you’d be back to getting a maximum of 15% off
- Something else
Anybody who’s initial year ran out have any insight on what Amazon is offering?Copyright 2017 Original content authorized only to appear on Money Beagle. Please subscribe via RSS, follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or receive e-mail updates. Thank you for reading.
