"Parenting is rewarding but we know it can also be demanding and expensive. Amazon Family was created to help parents and caregivers find and save on products they need," said Alexandre Gagnon, country manager for Amazon.ca. "With Amazon Family, we're offering an incredible price for diapers and making it easy and convenient for customers to get essentials such as toys, strollers, baby monitors and more at affordable prices, delivered directly to their doorstep."  

With Amazon Family, members can take advantage of a number of benefits, including:

  • 20% off diapers with a Subscribe & Save subscription.
  • Unlimited FREE Two-Day Shipping on millions of items with Amazon Prime, including strollers, high chairs, car seats and more.
  • Access to Amazon Family exclusive discounts and offers on key necessities, including items for the nursery, toys, newborn accessories, children's books and more.

Amazon Family is open to anyone responsible for caring for a baby or young child  -- moms, dads, grandparents and caregivers. With a variety of free shipping options for Amazon.ca customers, families don't have to worry about finding time to get out of the house to go shopping or getting heavy, bulky items home.

The introduction of Amazon Family builds on a number of new Amazon.ca customer programs.
