I'm going to make this short and sweet:
If you're not using Amazon Mom, you should be.
I'll tell you why.
You get free two-day shipping on like.... everything.
Who doesn't LOVE free two-day shipping, I ask you.
It takes my breath away and makes me giddy.
Now here's the thing:
It's kind of a complicated and confusing process to actually sign up for it: it's somewhere on Amazon's website and you have to go on a little adventure to find it, but you know... Indiana Jones never got a treasure unless he was first chased by a gigantic cement ball.
Trust me, this annoying process is worth it.
Just for signing up you get three months of two-day shipping free, and then every time you buy $25 worth of products from their baby or kid section (diapers, clothes, shoes, food, popsicle molds etc) you get an extra month tacked onto the end.
I've already earned free shipping through April of 2012, and I wasn't even ordering baby stuff!
I was ordering weird stuff, like canning lids, and running shoes, and a Leapster for Rowan's birthday. The Leapster I can understand, but the other stuff just makes no sense.
Will I bring this to Amazon's attention?
I will order everything I do not need in less than 48 hours and then wait for it to arrive at my house.
Gluten-free oatmeal for making granola bars.
Good quality organic grade B Maple syrup.
Shredded coconut for making homemade coconut milk.
Did you know Amazon has food too? And if you use the subscribe & save option, it's usually at really good prices.
So, sign up for Amazon Mom, even if you're not a mom. Because it's free two-day shipping, people. A regular Amazon Prime membership (which I've been coveting for years) is $79 a year! Hehe, suckers, I would have paid for it and they're just giving it away for free!
