Amazon seems to be getting more and more membership services and the Amazon Prime Family Membership is another one of those programs. This time geared to families with babies and young children.
I do want to clarify that this membership used to be called the “Amazon Mom” Prime Membership. But since mom’s aren’t the only ones who take care of their children, Amazon got with the times (after a bunch of Dad bloggers campaigned for a name change) and renamed the program to Amazon Family.
What Is The Amazon Prime Family Membership?
Like the title says this is a prime membership, but with a twist. So if you are already an amazon prime member, then you can start taking advantages of the Family Membership today!
If you aren’t a prime member, you can check it out for free with Amazon’s 30 day free trial! If after the 30 days you don’t think it’s for you, then simply log into your account and cancel your membership. But don’t forget or your credit card will start being charged. So put a reminded on your phone or in your calendar!

Now that you are set up with a prime membership, let’s take a closer look at the Family aspect of it.
You can sign up for the family membership once you have joined Amazon Prime.
Special Features Of the Amazon Family Membership Program
♥ 20% off baby essentials like diapers and wipes
♥ Receive a 15% off Baby Registry completion coupon. Plus get access to limited time offers such as Amazon’s Welcome Box (it’s FREE)
♥ Exclusive deals and coupons from Amazon Family
♥ Amazon Free Time Unlimited – this offers unlimited access to many kid-friendly books, movies, TV shows, apps and games starting at $2.99 a month (with a prime membership). But if you are a regular Seeme and Liz reader, you will know that I am not a fan of young children “learning” from TV and apps, because babies, toddlers and young children learn best through hands on play and interacting with others.
You can save even more by signing up with the Subscribe and Save Program! I will talk about that some more after going over a few important details of the Baby Registry.
A quick note on how the 15% off Baby Registry Completion Coupon works.
This is a one time coupon that will show up on your registry once you are eligible (usually after 14 days of creating your registry). The discount can only be applied 60 days before your baby is due (you enter this date when filling out your registry information) and up to 180 days after. When you click on the message that shows at the top of your registry page it will tell you which products are eligible for the discount and what the discounted price is.
What is Amazon’s Subscribe and Save Program?
Yes, here is another program you can join.
Subscribe and Save is meant for products that you typically buy every month. By signing up with subscribe and save you are eligible for discounts (often 15-20% off) when you place monthly orders. And by being an Amazon Family member there are even more discounts!
Subscribe and Save Categories Include
♥ Household Supplies
♥ Personal Care
♥ Baby Care & Food
