What’s The Latest With Amazon Mom?

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?

  1. I believe the free two-day shipping was the only part of the offer that would be limited to up to 12 months. The extra 15% off is still in effect and it looks like you can still sign up for Amazon Moms.

  2. I just checked my Amazon Mom subscription and was about to buy some diapers. I've been a member over a year and saw that my discount for Amazon Mom is still 15%, but the subscribe and save is only 5% now. 🙁 diapers are so expensive! What alternative diaper brands, if any, are you using?

  3. @Anonymous – I heard they cut the Subscribe & Save discount from 15% to 5% on new baby items you add in your cart. As of last check (last week) items you already had in your carts were still showing up at the 30% discount, and some reported that you could change sizes of items you already had in your cart and you'd still keep the extra 10%. Your mileage may vary!
