Ok, welcome back!
From spontaneous dates to late night crises at the office, SitterCity gives you the flexibility to balance your life when you need it most. That being said, at $35.00 a month it can cost you a pretty penny.
If you’re thinking, not too shabby– I wouldn’t mind paying up for that date night right now...
PAUSE. I know, I know. This whole new level of freedom is the answer to your prayers, but don’t go spending your hard earned dollars just yet. I’m about to show you how to save on monthly costs and get 24/7 access to quality sitters on a budget...
If you've never used coupons online before, here's a quick video to help you get primed for our special tips and tricks...
You’re probably here because you did the same thing I did when I looked for SitterCity coupons (or any coupons for that matter). Type ‘sittercity coupon code’ in our friend and savior Google, and you get a sea of results. A lot of them are overwhelmingly scammy, even providing coupon codes that exist right on the SitterCity website to reel in your email (yes, that’s how spam is born).
I figured it’s time to put a halt to all the nonsense, and provide you with a legitimate, tell-all guide for finding SitterCity coupons online.
Step 1: Figure Out How Long You’ll Likely be Using SitterCity
There are tons of coupons out there for the SitterCity packages. Some apply to all of them, and some gear towards a specific package.
How much does SitterCity cost, anyway? Well, without any discounts you can either choose their 1 month plan at $35.00, their 3 month plan at $70, or their 12 month plan for $140.
For what you’re getting, it isn’t all that bad. But as my fellow coupon cutters know, there’s no better feeling than getting a sale. So, when it comes to working with SitterCity promos, you have 3 options:
- Take the First Month Free (provided that it’s still available) and choose one of their packages. Keep in mind that after that first month, you’ll essentially be paying full price, unless SitterCity is running a deal, which they often do. If you’re in a hurry it’s worth filling out the
- Find a Coupon Code: Take the first month free and find a coupon code for the one of the packages (we’ll explain where to find them in just a second). SitterCity will still grant you the first free month (for now) and you’ll get the discounted price on the next 1, 3, or 12 month package. Some of their coupon codes are tailor-made to a package, so be sure to read the fine print and find the right one for you.This is obviously the best route to take if your family is as coupon savvy as we are.
- Take The Sneaky Approach: cancel your membership after the first month and reinstate with a coupon. Some of the coupon codes have 1 month free plus an additional discount thereafter. The downside: you’ll have to start your search all over again. No one has time for that, which is why we’re here in the first place.
Step 2: Check The Official SitterCity Coupon Page
I asked a few of the friend’s I’ve turned on to www.sittercity.com and a lot of them didn’t even know about this, so I think it’s a good place to start.
If there’s a coupon source worth trusting, it’s this one. The official SitterCity coupons are pretty great, often offering deals like the first month free or 30% off one of their membership plans. It’s an excellent way to begin.
This is definitely a fool-proof method, and it’s pretty easy to implement. Once you’re in the coupons page, all you have to do is select the coupon you’re looking for and click right through to apply it.
Having trouble finding the coupon page? Simply visit their site and scroll down to the bottom navigation menu, pictured below. Select SitterCity promotions under ‘Child Care,’ and voila!
Don’t start the signup process until you check the coupons page. It works flawlessly if you sign up directly from the coupon links instead.
Step 3: Use Our Coupon Code!
Not only will you get the first month free, but you’ll also get a whopping 35% OFF on any package you like. Definitely beats most of the SitterCity deals we’ve seen. Unfortunately, you can’t go combining all these deals, so we definitely encourage you to keep searching for a better option in case one comes up.
There are tons of blogs out there that offer the occasional SitterCity coupon, and we strongly encourage you to explore them. We’ve seen these kinds of coupons come in the form of codes and links. As always when it comes to surfing unfamiliar sites on the web, just be careful what you click on!
Step 4: Give Groupon a Try
Groupon is a trustworthy site, and SitterCity knows well that moms and dads are all over it. Depending on where you live, you may find a discount based on your zip code. They’ve popped up for the likes of New York and Chicago, so it’s a great place to look.
Step 5: Other Legitimate SitterCity Coupon Code Finders
So, back to the Google search we discussed earlier…
There are tons of SitterCity discounts out there, but not all of them look right. We have 3 coupon aggregators, other than Groupon, that we know work. They’re all pretty similar, and they have users vote on whether the coupon codes listed are working or not, so you can get a good idea of which are expired. Here’s what they almost always look like:
Always check out the SitterCity coupons page for deals, but be aware that these are exclusively for new members, as are most of the online coupons out there.
Don’t think that’s the be-all, end-all coupon source, either. We found plenty of other sites that feature coupons, and remember that (for now) SitterCity will automatically give you your first month free, so your coupon codes will apply for charges on the 2nd month and thereafter, depending on the coupon terms.
Be careful what you sign up for. As a general rule, if it sounds too good to be true, it very well might be!

Hopefully this’ll clear up some of the confusion out there about how SitterCity coupons work.
