Price Comparison: Where to buy

posted in: Cloth Diapers | 0

If you are anything like me, you spend an excessive amount of time comparing the prices across different stores on all items you plan to purchase to determine where you will get the most for your money. I’ve been wondering for a while now if there is a general trend for one store to be a better at pricing than another, so I decided to do a pretty through price comparison. Overall, the prices are the same  across stores, with Amazon having slightly higher prices on a few items. The other notable exception is the Nicki’s Diapers brand. These diapers are only carried at Nicki’s Diapers, but generally are well priced – especially if your are interested in flats or prefolds. The downside is that the flats and prefolds sell out quickly! (Disclaimer: This post does contain affiliate links.)

Kelly’s Closet has a large selection of quality made diapers, a 30 day risk free guarantee (make sure to read the details, because there are restrictions), and frequently has a coupon for a free diaper with purchase. You can also get 10% off a purchase after signing up for their newsletter. They also have a rewards program, so you can earn points for every dollar spent that you later redeem for gift certificates. Great deal!

Nicki’s Diapers also has a large selection of quality made diapers, plus their own brand of diapers which are a fantastic value. The diapers are well made and ethically made, but economical. Another bonus is that for every Nicki’s brand diaper sold they donate one to people in need – Karma credit! They have a 15-day trial program where you can return anything you aren’t satisfied with within 15 days of receiving them. Like Kelly’s Closet, Nicki’s also has a rewards program through which you can earn gift certificates for your purchases. Use coupon code FIVE to get 5% off your purchase.

Amazon is a go to store for many people for many things, which makes it super convenient. With an Amazon Prime or Amazon Family membership, you get quick and free shipping so it is a nice choice when you only want to buy one or two items. I also like Amazon for registries, because many people do not like to buy from a store they are unfamiliar with or may not spend enough to get free shipping, which is easier to do with Amazon (since many people have Amazon prime or they can get things for themselves to reach the $25 limit). Also, if you have Amazon Family, you can get a 15% off completion discount for buying any remaining items from your registry after you little one is born (the completion discount is 10% if you do not have an Amazon Family membership.
