Did you know that the average newborn goes through 10 diapers a day!
And that by the time they’ve hit their third birthday, you’ll have spent more than $2,100 buying at least 8,580 diapers! Crazy!
That’s a huge expense on a family, so we’ve put together a list of 9 ways you can get free diapers….
1. Free Samples
Believe it or not, there are a ton of companies that will send you free diapers just for trying out their brand. It’s not a long-term savings strategy, but you can definitely get enough samples to last you for a week or so. Every little bit helps!
Simply Right – It seems to vary, but they sent us 5 diapers.
Little Huggies – Register here for a free sample pack of diapers & wipes.
Seventh Generation – They’ll send you 2 free, organic cloth diapers.
2. Pampers Gifts to Grow
Join the Pampers Gifts to Grow program and they’ll send you free diapers as reward for your loyalty to the Pamper’s brand.
Every time you buy a box of Pampers, look for the code inside the box and enter it into the website above. Those points can be saved up and later redeemed for diapers, baby food and toys.
3. Diaper Bank
If things are really tough, check out the National Diaper Bank Network. The non-profit network is aimed at assisting low-income families and they’ve started local chapters all over the country.
As you probably know, food stamps and WIC do not provide diapers, so this is a wonderful alternative to those who need assistance.
4. Enter a Diaper Contest
Try your luck at winning some free diapers. There are hundreds of diaper contests online and you never know when you’re going to get lucky.
In fact, the folks over at Everyday Family currently have a giveaway where you win diapers for an entire year (est. value – $750)! Here’s the link.
Another great loyalty program is the Huggies “Enjoy the Ride Rewards” program. It’s similar to the Pamper’s program in that each time you buy Huggies diapers or other baby products, you enter the code into the Huggies Rewards website.
Once you’ve save up enough points, you can request coupons for free diapers or other Huggies products.
5. Get Free Diapers with Swagbucks
Arguably one of the cheapest places to get diapers is at Amazon, so here’s a tip on how to get a free Amazon gift card. Join the Swagbucks rewards program.
They’ll give you Amazon gift cards for using their search engine, answering trivia questions, and watching videos. It’s not a ton of money, but most people are able to earn about $10 a month in free Amazon gift cards.
6. Use Cloth Diapers
A lot of parents have found that using washable, cloth diapers can be a great way to save on diapers. Financial blogger, Courtney Baker, recently did the math and found that a family with three kids could save over $2,500 by switching to cloth diapers!
7. Become a Diaper Ambassador
If you can convince other moms to start buying their diapers online, the folks over at Diapers.com will pay you!
They have a pretty lucrative referral program where you can earn $5 in diaper credit for every mom you refer to the site. Here’s a link to their referral program.
8. Ask the Diaper Companies
Look – diapers are a big business and companies know that once you’ve started with their brand, you’re likely to continue using them until your child is potty-trained. So take advantage of this and register with the major brands below for free coupons and diapers:
9. Eliminate Diapers All-Together?
A few months ago, one of our contributors shared her story of raising her son diaper-free. It’s a growing trend and it’s no wonder since the average family can save more than $2,100 going this route. Would you consider this?
