As mentioned earlier, Amazon has started a program that it calls Amazon Mom. Despite the name, it is open to Dads, Grandparents, and frankly, anyone. All you have to do is go to amazon.com/mom and fill out a form. No proof of being a primary care giver for a baby or toddler is required. As long as you care about being a good dad or mom (or pretend to) that’s all that matters.
The key benefit of Amazon Mom is that you get three months of free membership in the Amazon Prime program, and that means that you get free shipping on any size order (no $25 minimum is required). More importantly, it is free 2-day shipping. That can make the difference between getting a Christmas present ordered on Amazon in time for Christmas Day or not.
The Amazon Mom program also offers discounts on diapers and wipes, but you need to subscribe to regular orders to get the 30% discount on diapers and baby wipes.
Don’t forget, Amazon free super-saver shipping is available on orders of $25 and above. However, that kind of shipping has a time frame of 5 to 7 business days, and it gets slower with the Christmas rush as the holiday draws closer. That makes the free Amazon Prime 2 day shipping such an important part of finding good online deals for baby stuff and Christmas gifts for kids.
I’m bringing this free offer up again now because we are officially within the window where those three months of free 2-day shipping include Christmas (and New Years if you care.)
Go sign up now while you have plenty of time and aren’t rushing to make last minute shopping decisions. It will be sitting there waiting on your Amazon account come December 17th when you really need it.
