What baby bargains will April bring along with those pesky showers? Here’s what you can expect in April, based on sales and deals we’ve seen in previous years.
Gap kicked the month off right with a 40% off coupon code on April 1 last year. You can get 35% off at Gap.com today (March 31). Fingers crossed that the deal is even better tomorrow.
Old Navy ran a 30% off coupon code on April 1 last year, too.
6pm.com really likes to celebrate those minor holidays. We saw some nice shoe deals from them April 1 -3 last year.
We saw some sweet deals on Britax seats and strollers during week one last year as Britax cleared out last year’s models. Look for them at Amazon, AlbeeBaby and other retailers.
With spring break just about here you can expect to see deals on swim diapers, swimsuits, sandals sunscreen and more pop up starting at the beginning of April.
Snapfish.com had 50% off photo books during week one last year.
Speaking of photo deals, expect several free and penny prints sales near the beginning of the month. Shutterfly had 101 free prints last year at the start of the month, for example. Snapfish’s birthday is early in April, so we always see some high-value discounts there, too.
Kohls ran a 20% off coupon that was good for everybody during week one and week two last year. There were some nice toy deals to go along with.
Look for 50% off at Baby Legs around April 15th.
Watch for big discounts on kids’ sport sandals at 6pm.com around mid-month.
Boden ran a 25% off sale at mid month last year. Free shipping, too.
Carters and OshKosh offered free shipping with no minimum just after mid-month last year. They offered it again right at the end of the month.
Look for more high-value discounts from Gap and Old Navy around the middle of April.
Diapers.com dropped prices on See Kai Run, Stride Rite and more by up to 40% during week two last year.
For more See Kai Run deals, watch for a 50% off early walker sale at SeeKaiRun.com around April 15.
Watch for a 50% off one item deal on kids’ clothes and shoes at Look.com around mid month.
Earth Day is Tuesday, April 22. BC predicts there will be lots of fun and free stuff to do outside in your community. Spring festivals also begin this month in many areas. Check your local listings. Many have arts and crafts areas for kids.
Earth Day also brings deals on eco-friendly and organic baby items.
Get free admission to national parks April 19 through April 27. More info here.

Watch for a friends and family sale at The Children’s Place during week four.
Consignment sales continue this month, though not in the same volume we saw in March. Check for sales near you in your local paper or at The Bargain Watcher, Consignment Mommies and KidsConsignmentsSales.com. Garage sales begin in warmer areas. Check your local paper or Craigslist to find them. Try using the “find” function on your browser to search for specific items like “crib” or “stroller” in the sale descriptions.
Sales on outdoor play equipment continue. This is a great month to buy a swingset.
