I finally made it in to Babies ‘R Us this morning to “register” and receive my free $10 gift card (I received a coupon in the mail awhile back). I’m not sure if it was worth my time as my boys were with me using the scanning gun and removing sippy cups from the wall. They really slow things down (and make me laugh constantly).
To my surprise, I also received a bag full of goodies, including: 3 newborn diapers, a trial size pack of wipes, a cute diaper storage bag, 3 onesies (granted, they will make my baby into a walking advertisement), a sheet of Pamper’s coupons which should stack with manufacturer’s coupons, the new Babies ‘R Us Rewards Card & a $10 gift card.
I also received a stack of parenting magazines and pamphlets instructing me how to keep my baby alive and entertained with overpriced products. What in the world did our parents do without retail stores dispensing childrearing advice? It’s a surprise we survived at all.
I’m planning to hold onto the gift card until Black Friday (day after Thanksgiving). Last year, Babies ‘R Us had a sweet early morning deal on diapers and I’m hoping for a similar one this year. My $10 gift card should result in almost free diapers!
