Amazon Mom - Ridiculous!

I am soooo disappointed in Amazon right now.

We have been loyal subscribers of Amazon for their Earth's Best diapers through 2 children now.  We loved the great discounts that we received through Amazon Mom and the Subscribe and Save discounts.

Now, though, they are requiring those that have used this program to now join Amazon Prime, which is $79 per year! RIDICULOUS!

The cost savings on diapers is nearly eliminated now!

I am so bummed and I hope that other will help to spread the word.

Can we get Amazon to change???

This is the email that they sent me two days ago - Thanks for the notice! Seriously? 2 weeks?

Once again....RIDICULOUS!!!

I'm down on Amazon right now, too. Loved their wipe delivery, but that was the only thing I bought through the baby store (aside from weekly purchases of other things), so my Amazon Mom ran out quickly--which is irritating, bc you'd think my monthly wipe purchase would still be a good sell for them.  Jeff decided to do a 1 mo trial for the Prime, then I spent 4 hours trying to figure out how to stream their instant movies to our blu ray (Let's just say customer service is very hard to find on Amazon's end when you need it.). Let me just say I ordered my DVDs through BN yesterday and my diapers through diapers.com today. And I already cancelled Amazon Prime. I've LOVED Amazon, but something has gone terribly wrong lately. OH! And anyone else who wants to follow me to diapers.com can use the referral code BRAN1883 to save $10 off your first purchase. ;)

I found this ridiculous, as well.

But you know, cloth diapers are an excellent green option... just saying...
