Help, my pump died!

My pump (Medela PISA) finally bit the bullet today. The problem is that I WOHM and need a replacement asap. Any suggestions on where to get a good deal with quick shipping? Any coupon codes that might be out there? TIA!

I have no idea about coupons but maybe check with your insurance. Ours covered a new one when DD was born and since we met the deductable with her birth it didn't cost me anything. I just needed a perscription from the dr and got it at the home healt store at the hospital

I had that happen a couple of months ago - I called Ameda and they overnighted me a new one - it was $150 for the new pump but free shipping which hurt the pocketbook - but as you know - it was worth it!

I had this happen with my Medela and then ordered an Ameda pump only, was able to use all of my Medela bottles with the ameda pump. This was a couple years ago but I assume they are still compatible.

This happened to me and I turned to Craigslist. Tons of women selling not used/used once or twice pumps and willing to deal. I had a pump purchased on my way to work the next day.

I bought my second after my Medela died off Craigslist as well. It was sealed, new in box off another mama who received one at her shower. You can try there. BRU have deals from time to time.
