Whether you’re a first-time parent or a pro at parenting your multiple kids, the truth is taking care of little ones comes with a hefty price tag. If you’re on a first-name basis with the customer service rep at Babies”R”Us, you could probably benefit from our list of ways to save at this kids’ goods superstore.

1. Start at the source

Don’t miss the Babies”R”Us savings center, chock full of daily deals in the ‘today’s deals’ section.

2. Shop the sales

It goes without saying that shopping the clearance section will save you some cash, and the Babies”R”Us clearance section online is a great way to get started.

3. Become a Rewards”R”Us member

Rewards”R”Us members earn one point for every $1 spent at Babies”R”Us and Toys”R”Us stores, and 125 points earns you $5 in “R”Us Rewards. You can bank your points up to $200 in “R”Us rewards for future purchases.

4. Put together a registry

If you’re expecting, putting together a registry with Babies”R”Us will get you up to 10% back on purchases made from that registry if you’re a Rewards”R”Us member — even if you made the purchases yourself. You’ll also receive a 10% completion discount certificate to finish purchasing the rest of the items from your registry.

5. Search for coupons in your local paper

Your local Babies”R”Us may be having its own sales, which you can learn about through your local paper. You can also select your local Babies”R”Us location online and look for weekly ads containing coupons there.

6. Double up on coupon savings

Check out coupons available directly from Babies”R”Us and on sites like RetailMeNot, then try searching for manufacturer coupons for products you’re interested in. Babies”R”Us will let you stack your coupons, which could greatly add to your savings.

7. Use social media to your advantage

Sign up for the Babies”R”Us newsletter for sales notifications and coupons, and follow the brand on Twitter and Facebook to never miss a sale.

8. Trade in your old baby goods

At least once a year, the company has a trade-in event that could earn you savings. For example, from now through Feb. 20th, Toys”R”Us and Babies”R”Us are hosting a Great Trade-In Gear & Furniture Event, where trading in your old gear will score you a 25% off coupon on a new item, or 30% off when you use your “R”Us Credit card.

9. Provide your contact information at the store

While it’s frustrating to be constantly confronted with fliers from stores where you’ve given out your email or home address, if you’re hoping to score deals on baby goods, it doesn’t hurt to share that information with Babies”R”Us. At least once a month a flier comes to my home, and while I’m not always looking for baby gear, the attached coupon that comes with the flier is always appreciated.

10. Open an “R”Us credit card

If you know this store will be on your monthly hit list, it might be worth signing up for an “R”Us credit card. When you open the card, you’ll start with either 15% off your purchase that day or a special financing option, plus you’ll earn two points per every $1 spent at either Toys or Babies”R”Us (125 points = $5 in rewards), and you’ll get 10% off on in-store purchases every Thursday when you use the credit card.

11. Use the price match guarantee program

Babies”R”Us will price match your in-store purchase on identical items from any of its competitors, including Amazon, Baby Depot, diapers.com and Target, among others (in-store and online prices are eligible). Find the full list here.

12. Buy in bulk to save on shipping

A purchase of $19 or more will earn you free shipping at babiesrus.com. If you can’t wait the four to six days for delivery you could always opt for the free in-store pick-up option (when available). This way, if your items are in stock, you can pick them up all together in the same day, usually in under an hour. Using this method allows you to pay for your items online before picking them up, meaning if anything is on sale or cheaper online (which occasionally happens), you’ll be able to score that deal.

13. Use outside sources

Search discount sites like Gift Card Granny and Groupon, which often offer vouchers or gifts cards for stores at discounted prices. Keep in mind that sometimes these transactions aren’t immediate so they’re best for items you don’t need right away.
