Two popular sites to order diapers are Amazon.com and Diapers.com.
I’ve never ordered from Diapers.com before so I was curious if their prices are competitive with the Amazon Mom program.
Aren’t you curious?
For Amazon.com, I’m using the Amazon Mom Subscribe and Save program which you can try free for 3 months. In order to continue after 3 months, you’ll have to join Amazon Prime at $79/year, which comes out to $6.58/mo.
Amazon Mom offers free 2 day shipping with no minimum order and an additional 20% off diapers and wipes, if you subscribe to the automatic reordering program called Subscribe and Save. Your order will automatically renew every 1, 2, 3 months or more. You get to set the renewal period and can change it at any time.
For this comparison, we’ll focus on disposable diapers. I included both popular and natural brand of diapers.
Let’s first check out the pros and cons of each.
- Save 20% diapers and wipes with the Amazon Mom Subscribe and Save program
- Free 2 day shipping, no minimum
- Accepts manufacturer coupons
- Ships within 2 days or overnight, depending on where you live
- Free shipping on orders $49+
- 24/7 customer service via phone
- Refer a friend and they receive $10 off their first order, Diapers.com will also donate up to $30 to selected charities.
|Diaper Brand||Size||Count||Amazon||Amazon Mom||Diapers.com||Coupon|
|Huggies Snug and Dry||3||156||$32.25/$.21||$25.40/$.16||$34.99/$.22||eCoupon|
|Nature Baby Care||3||124||$41.98/$.34||$33.58/$.27||$44.49/$.36||No|
As you can see in the comparison, Amazon Mom came out the cheapest for every brand. Keep in mind that after the free Amazon Mom trial ends, you’ll have to join Amazon Prime to continue to receive Amazon Mom discounts, which as mentioned above is $79/year and comes out to $6.58/mo.
Even with that, it’s worth it for the free 2 day shipping and Amazon Instant Video feature.
Both Amazon.com and Diapers.com offer the same eCoupons from the popular brands. So rest assured, if you order from either one, you’ll get the lowest price available.
Diapers.com focuses on customer service as they offer a 24/7 phone line that Amazon doesn’t.
However, to keep costs low, Amazon automates the entire ordering process. They have no customer service phone line. If you have a problem, you have to email them.
But I’ve never had to contact Amazon’s customer service before anyway as I’ve never had a problem with ordering. Even their order fulfillment is mostly automated by computers.
What’s your experience with Amazon.com or Diapers.com?
