Diapers are one of the largest expenses when you have a baby. I used cloth diapers on my little one, but that isn’t always possible (and cloth diapers have very expensive start up costs). Recently a reader asked me how you can find the cheapest cloth diapers (she made diaper cakes) and I thought I would put together a post for you. It is a common question! Read on to find out the cheapest ways to find disposable diapers:
Diapers.com can be a great place to get cheap diapers. The key to getting cheap disposable diapers at diapers.com is using coupons and rebates on top of the sale prices. Start at Ebates and click through to diapers.com. That will give you an extra rebate on your purchase (and a bonus $5 when you sign up). Then use one of the many coupon codes available (Ebates will post the codes you can use). Usually the codes are for $10 off $49. Plus, the prices at diapers.com are already cheap and they often will give you an ecoupon you can use on top of the diapers.com coupon code and rebate.
Amazon is the best place to find cheap disposable diapers. Sign up with Amazon Mom and you will save an additional 15% off on diaper orders. Then you can save another 15% off by signing up for subscribe and save – for a total 30% off the already discounted prices! Amazon also offers ecoupons. You can find them at the bottom of the description for the item or at this Amazon Coupons link.
Alice.com works like drugstore and diapers.com. You get automatic coupons and free shipping. Plus, for a limited time you will also get 20% off your first order, making stocking up on your disposable diapers even cheaper!
Drugstore.com is the second best place to find cheap disposable diapers (Amazon is first). You get a full 6% rebate when you shop through Ebates. Plus, you get free shipping on a $25 order everyday. You can use coupon codes on top of those savings.

If you do not care what brand of diapers you use then look no further than your local CVS. Use the Extracare Bucks program to get disposable diapers for cheap (or even free!). Each week I post how you can “roll” your bucks to the following weeks deals, but in this case you will not be rolling your bucks. Instead, purchase the disposable diapers using the Extra care bucks that you earned. Extra care bucks can be used on any product at CVS (including Huggies and Pampers as well as the CVS brand diapers). If you need help starting the CVS ECB program then check out my CVS tutorial.
You can also get free diapers at Walgreens using the same techniques as you would at CVS except this time you are using the Walgreens Register Reward program. Once again, you can use the Register Rewards on anything in the store including Huggies, Pampers, and the Walgreens brand diapers. I have a Walgreens tutorial if you want to learn how to use the Register Rewards program.
There are five places where you can find the cheapest disposable diapers. Be sure to keep a lookout for great local diaper sales as well!
