After contacting Mamapedia about the $5 off your first purchase problem that many of you sadly experienced, they wrote me back and said this:
Starting April 1st, we no longer offer $5 credits when sign up. Instead we offer aWELCOME5 for them to take $5 off their first purchase.
That’s it! Please, when you use it, comment on this post and let us know how it worked. Also, I noticed on their site that they will give you the deal for FREE if three of your friends buy it (you have to buy it first, I think, but am not sure of the details because I just read the information quickly). Check it out! Current deals include 50% off at Chic Online Gift Botique and 67% off of Dr. Seuss prints.
