I just got a good deal on some diapers, and thought I would pass it along. If you go to, and are a new customer, you can get $10 off your order (by using the referral promo code: SHAY4667), plus a $15 rebate, and free shipping, if you spend $49 or more.

So, here's what you do:

1. Go to, and pick out any combination of diapers that add up to $49.
2. When you check out, use referral promo code : SHAY4667. You should get free shipping on your order of $49 or more ($49 before you take the $10 discount off at checkout). They should arrive within a couple of business days. Another bonus: they didn't charge me sales tax (and don't for most states), so that saved me a few more dollars over the grocery store.
3. Go to
and follow instructions to get your $14.97 rebate. (Basically, you are opting out of getting a free year subscription to Parenting magazine and they just give you the money they would have spent on your subscription instead. If you don't do this step, you'll end up getting the magazine.)

*There's another code on their website that says you can get $5 off your order for being a new customer. You cannot stack this with your referral code, so it's better to use the referral code to get $10 off.

Once you join, you can get your own referral code and pass that along to other people you know who may find this helpful. Or you can just forward mine if you decide not to do it.

Hope this is helpful. Send this to anyone you know who needs a great deal on diapers!

AND even accepts manufacturer's coupons. You send them in and they'll tack it on to your account THUS saving you even more!!!
