Amazon’s going for the purse strings–quite literally–and inviting select members to join the new Amazon Mom program (You thought I was talking about tall, sexy Amazonian mommas.. you cheeky monkey…) Today they unveiled a new free membership that gives Amazon Mom members:
- 15% off all Amazon Prime eligible items (which I think is just about all Amazon shipped products)
- 15% Subscribe & Save discount for select diapers and wipes (which is still stackable with other coupon codes)
- free two-day shipping for three months or more
- discounted one-day shipping for $3.99
- exclusive email discounts and coupons
Here’s what the email from Amazon says specifically:
Join Amazon Mom for FREE and get FREE Prime Shipping for 3 months!! (For parents and caregivers) We hope you have been enjoying the limited-time 30% discount on diapers and wipes with Subscribe & Save!
To continue receiving 30% off diapers and wipes on Subscribe & Save orders, join Amazon Mom. Amazon Mom is a totally free program for parents and caregivers that gives you:
• 30% off select diapers and wipes: As an Amazon Mom, you receive an additional 15% discount on top of the standard 15% discount on select diapers and wipes when you sign up for Subscribe & Save delivery.
• When you join Amazon Mom, you will receive FREE Two-Day Shipping with Amazon Prime for the first 3 months of your membership. For each $25 you spend within a single order in the Baby store, we’ll grant you an additional month of Amazon Prime shipping benefits. You can earn up to one year from the date you joined Amazon Mom.
There is no cost to join –simply sign into your Amazon account and tell us whether you are a Mom, Dad, or other caregiver of a child. By providing some optional information about your family, you can help us personalize offers, e-mails, and product recommendations to help you find exactly what you need at just the right time.
A few more points I researched:
1. If you’re already a paying Prime Member, you should be reimbursed for your membership fee.
2. If you’re already a member of Amazon Student, you’ll have to decide which membership you want–Student or Mom. (Way to induce the mommy guilt Amazon!)
3. You can also share your Amazon Mom shipping discount with one other person.
So, pushing nerd glasses up and saying in a nasally voice, “FatHeadDog says two paws up!”
