How I Scored some CHEAP Training Pants

As some of you may know, the website Living Social had an awesome deal this week on Amazon gift cards.  A $20 gift card cost only $10, for one day only.  To top it off, if three of your friends buy gift cards through your referal link, yours is free!  I promptly bought one for myself, and then my husband also bought one through my referral link.  (There was a limit of one offer per customer).  I posted my referral link on facebook and two of my wonderful facebook friends also bought gift cards, which then made mine FREE! 

So, I then had $40 worth of Amazon gift cards that I only paid $10 for.  I knew just what I needed to buy: Pull-Ups! 

By joining Amazon Mom I was eligible to get 15% off all diapers, and free shipping.  By purchasing my items as a subscribe and save subscriptions (where you automatically get shipped the item after 1 month, or 2 months, etc.) I saved an additional 15%.  Note:  You can cancel subscriptions at any time!

So, with my $40 credit I purchased an 88 count box of size 4 Easy Ups at $30.18, which ended up being $21.13 after the applicable discounts.

I then purchased a 40 count box of UnderJams at $22.99, which ended up being $16.09 after the applicable discounts from Amazon Mom and Subscribe and Save.

So, with my $10 that I spent on the gift cards I was able to buy $53.17 worth of training pants, score free shipping, and still have almost $3.00 of credit remaining on my Amazon Account.  AMAZING. 

There are a number of ways to score free Amazon gift cards, including using Swagbucks, doing surveys, and doing product reviews for various websites.  Keep your eyes open and keep reading.  I'll be featuring some of these topics in the near future!
