How to Get Free Cloth Diapers Using Swagbucks

This post contains affiliate links

If you’re a cloth diapering parent, you know that the only thing better than adding to your diaper stash is adding to your diaper stash for free! I am so excited to finally be pregnant and have our first precious baby on the way! As a new mom to be, I’ve had to think about many important decisions and one issue I have decided on is cloth diapering my baby from the start. I have made this decision largely for economical and environmental reasons, because it exposes my baby to fewer chemicals, and because modern cloth diapers are so cute!

While cloth diapering is significantly cheaper than buying disposables from birth to potty training, especially if you pass them on to your next baby, they can still certainly add up quick, especially if you go for the fancy prints, the convenience of all in ones, and more sought after brands.

My baby isn’t due until November, but I’ve already started working on my stash so I won’t have to spend a lot of money all at once. I’m always looking for sales and deals, and it occurred to me that I can redeem my Swagbucks points for Amazon gift cards. Amazon has a surprisingly decent collection of popular cloth diapers to choose from – here are a few examples of name brands you can find & pricing:

Admittedly, I’m not going to be able to fund my whole diaper collection this way, but I have bookmarked Swagbucks and will make it part of my daily routine during my pregnancy. If I can take 2 seconds to answer the daily poll and answer a few surveys every now and then, I figure I can earn enough to buy 1 diaper a month, or some accessories like cloth wipes, wet bags, and inserts, all for FREE! I only wish I had remembered Swagbucks sooner!

If you are new to Swagbucks, read my detailed post about how to earn money with Swagbucks and how to sign up. Basically, you create an account and get rewarded for doing online activities. Here’s a few ways you can earn points:

- play games online
- use the Swagbucks search tool instead of Google
- answer the daily poll
- watch video clips
- sign up and refer other people
- check the Swagbucks blog, twitter feed, and Facebook page for rewards codes posted almost daily
- check my Swagbucks widget (at the bottom of the blog) daily to see if there are any high value codes.

Of course, if you aren’t into cloth diapering, you can redeem your Swagbucks points for Amazon gift cards and shop for anything. I actually cashed in recently and used my points towards a Graco Pack n Play.

If you do decide to sign up, please use my Swagbucks referral link so we can both earn some extra points

Do you have any other creative ways you get cloth diapers for free or very cheap?

Buy used from reputable sources. If a low income mom wants to use cloth, there are cloth diaper lending banks in both US and Canada that will help. Oh, and during the newborn phase, consider prefolds. They’re surprisingly easy, exceptionally cost effective, and can be repurposed when they’re outgrown as overnight inserts for pockets and cleaning aids.

Great tips! I bought about 2 dozen newborn prefolds to use as well, to supplement my stash with cheaper options.

I hope it helps! It’s not a quick fix, but I spend just a few minutes a day and made it part of my blogging routine.

I have never heard of Swagbucks before. Free is always good, I will have to check it out :)


Rachel June 24, 2013 at 5:42 pm

It can definitely add up! I have used it for diapers, towards my Pack N Play, and last year I saved up the points for Christmas gifts on Amazon.

I love swagbuck! I don’t waste a ton of time on it, though. I just got my first $5 amazon giftcard.

You can also make your own cloth diapers. They’re not that hard, and you can sometimes use materials you already have. Also, there are tons of free patterns online. I like to get my supplies from Diaper Sewing Supplies.

I wish I was talented enough to sew my own! I don’t even have a sewing machine though :)

Thanks so much for this post. I try entering tons of giveaways as well as looking for really good deals online and within my two local cloth diaper retailers. I’ve never heard of swagbucks, but am on the computer all the time for giveaways. I’m excited to rack up and randomly treat myself by adding to my stash.

I hope it helps! My biggest tip is to download the toolbar. You get 1 Swagbuck every day just for logging in, and it makes it easy to check if there’s a Swag code to type in for free points.
