Seen a Good Diaper Deal Lately?

When I first started diapering, lo, almost 13 years ago, the expensive brand cost about $5 or $6 a package for MORE diapers than they pack nowadays. My, how times change! Over a decade later, I’m still changing diapers. And the price has gone up tremendously over the years. Now, the quality has certainly improved, but that’s a tale for another day.

My point is that if you choose the disposable diaper route, then finding good diaper deals is imperative. Here are a few that I’ve found recently:

20% off at Amazon plus free 2-day shipping.

Amazon has been such a blessing to our family over the years. We’ve been able to find items at lower prices than we could in our own town. To find a deal and have it shipped to the door just can’t be beat. Right now you can get 20% off diapers and other baby supplies at Amazon, including formula, baby food, and all sorts of child care supplies. Plus, they’ll ship it for free! If you sign up for Subscribe & Save, an auto-delivery program, you can get an additional 15% off. I was impressed that their sale pricing is pretty comparable to what I’ve seen elsewhere. And if you’ve got a Swagbucks account, you can redeem those points for Amazon gift cards and get diapers for free!

New Diapers.com customers can get up to $20 off plus free shipping.

I’ve mentioned this great deal before, but if you haven’t yet taken advantage of it, you might want to consider it. Edited to add: some of the details have changed recently. I apologize for not catching this sooner!

Diapers.com shipping is amazingly speedy. Here are the details again. Please read carefully and make sure that you purchase at least one diaper or wipe product and that you mail in your rebate.

  1. I did the Target/Higgies deal today. Since the Pampers drymax has been around Sadie has been having a saggy behind, and it doesn’t seem to happen with the huggies.

    Also with my local store doubling coupons I can occasionally get a better deal on diapers there. My sister and I were recently having this discussion. It seems key ‘baby’ items are RARELY on sale. Diapers, formula, wipes. It seems like such a racket.

  2. The best deal, always, is at Aldi’s. There is no rigamarole, no sign up for this that and the other on websites. My child is currently size 4 and they are 17 cents a piece. Every time I run the numbers for a “deal” and think about the time involved it is so not a deal. I love their diapers, try them if you haven’t. I am a snob however when it comes to wipes, then it is Pampers sensitive. But what is up with no coupons ever for wipes, only diapers? It IS a racket!

    • Kelly,

      My son has eczema issues, and I have had to use sensitive wipes, soaps, lotions, etc. since he was born. I have actually found that the cheapest way to have good quality wipes that won’t cause him to break out is to make them myself. Before you think “no way, hosea!” hear me out–it takes me about 5-7 minutes to make two canisters of wipes, and those 2 canisters last about 2 weeks. I make the wipes with the same soap and lotion that I use for him anyway, so there are no issues with skin reactions. See below for the directions on how to get started. (Sorry, Fishmama, for this extremely long comment on your blog!)

      Homemade Wipes

      1) Purchase 3 round canisters of “Pure & Gentle” wipes ($2 each). These can be found at the Walmart, usually in the aisle with travel size hygiene products. This aisle also contains an assortment of baby wipes and baby soaps/lotions. Throw out the wipes in the canisters, and wash the canisters.

      2) Purchase a package of Bounty regular paper towels (a good sale price is $5-$6 for an 8 roll package). Be sure not to purchase the “large” rolls or the “select-a-size” rolls. The large rolls are too big in diameter to fit in the wipe canisters, and the select a size rolls will result in very small wipes.

      3) Cut one roll of paper towel in half (to create two short paper towel rolls), and remove the cardboard tube from inside each half. Place each half in one of the empty canisters. (I have a large serrated edge kitchen knife that will cut through the roll fairly easily.)

      4) Bring 1 ½ cups water to a boil. (I find that the easiest way to do this is to put 1 ½ cups water in a glass liquid measuring cup and heat it to a boiling temperature in the microwave.)

      5) Stir 1 tablespoon of a baby lotion of your choice into the water until completely mixed. (A wisk works the best for stirring quickly and thoroughly.)

      6) Stir 1 tablespoon of a baby soap of your choice into the lotion/water mix until completely mixed. Always stir in the lotion first—it will not mix into the water if the soap has already been added.

      7) Pour this soap/lotion/water mixture over the paper towel roll in one of the canisters.

      Repeat steps 4-7 for the second canister of paper towel. Or, heat 3 cups of water and add 2 T lotion followed by 2 T soap and just be careful to only pour 1 ½ C of the mixture over each canister.

      When you have finished using your first canister of homemade wipes, you should have two empty canisters to make another batch of wipes. That way you always have a one-canister cushion between when you need to make wipes. It helps avoid the “he just had a huge blow-out and I only have two wipes left!” panic.:) The canisters are also completely re-usable even though they are meant to be disposable. So, you just make the $6 investment for 3 canisters once.:) One canister of wipes will last about a week.

      FYI: My husband cut a larger hole in the lid of the canister to pull the wipes through. The hole already in the canister was small enough that it kept tearing the wipes as we pulled them through.

  3. Check Vons this week. On vons.com there’s a $3 EQ to add to your card + a $7.99 Vons Q in the weekly ad + $3 huggies Q on coupons.com. $1.99 for a pack of diapers rocks :)

  4. Check the link on the rebate–it looks like it has changed so that it is only for $10 and you have to purchase $75 of products in order to submit the rebate. I was bummed to see this, but it is my own fault for waiting so long to make my order. :-) I still love diapers.com!

    • Jessica Fisher says:

      Thank you! I did some research and I think I’ve got all the details covered. Sorry I missed that!

  5. We go to Sam’s Club for our diapers and wipes. It ends up being about $0.21 per diaper (for the size 4s), which is comparable to the Diapers.com deal only if you’re using the coupon code. Otherwise Diapers.com is about $.07 more expensive per diaper.

    • @Amanda, It’s .18 a diaper for the Sam’s Club diapers in size 4 at my store.

      Target brand diapers are .19 each for size 5 here; I have a friend who buys those.

      Both are nice and I like both of them better than Pampers or Huggies. Plus, they have no scent.

  6. If you have a Publix, there’s a $10 gift card by mail when you buy $35 Huggies. Plus there’s $3 store Q to stack with the $3 internet Q. i found out about it here: The store Q is from the One Stop One Shop booklet, and you can stack that too with a Target Huggies Q if it’s still available.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
