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?
