Good nappies are a godsend. They save a world of mess, washing, changing and discomfort for your child.
You would be forgiven for assuming that mammasaver would recommend supermarket own brands in this instance.
Now, we did try. Really, we did.
In fact, we invested heavily in packs upon packs of supermarket own-brand economy nappies.
What we found is that we needed to change the nappies more often, meaning that although the cost per nappy was relatively low, we ended up using more of them than the leading brand, Pampers.
How to buy Pampers at economy prices
So began the great Pampers Quest - how to find Pampers at a price that matches, or betters the supermarket own brand's.
After a near-obsessive hunt and nappy price comparison, we found the the answer: a cunning mix of bulk buying, cashback sites and loyalty points.
We compared the cost of Pampers Baby Dry Size 4 Mega boxes between the usual suspects: Asda, Amazon, Tesco, Sainsbury's and Boots.
We found that whatever the special offer, 'Baby Event' or promotion, Boots always came out on top with the following method, averaging at just under 11p per nappy. These pennies (no pun intended) really do add up as the months go on.
Step by step guide:
1. First, go to a cashback site like TopCashback.com. If you don’t have an account yet, click on www.topcashback.co.uk/home
2. Search ‘Boots’
3. Follow the link to claim the cashback. This company will give existing Boots customers 2% back on any baby orders. For new customer, the cashback is a rather lovely 6%.
4. At the end of the transaction, make sure you include your Advantage Card information to claim further points (3 Mega boxes earn 148 points). Remember to make sure that you are a member of their Parenting Club to get 10 points for every £1.
Hey presto - you have premium nappies for economy prices.
