Why go to a grocery store if you could just go to your computer? The proof that this really can be your one stop shop for all your needs is the Prime Pantry from Amazon.
This may be the easiest way to access your kitchen and food commodities – especially the carton-packed varieties such as cereals, peanut butter, bread, and other packaged goods. As Amazon notes, the service is perfect for receiving 'snacks, breakfast foods, drinks, beauty and body care products, and household products'.
While there are many other food delivery services today, few have the geographical reach or range that Amazon can provide, and of course, few are so affordable.
If you are considering indulging in Prime Pantry before (or in honor of) the Amazon Prime Day, you should consider the following information about using the service.
To use Prime Pantry, you must be a Prime member. Registration is easy ̵
Just visit the Prime Pantry home page, which asks you to try the service for 30 days for free. After that you will be charged $ 4.99 per month for further access.
. 3 Set the postal code for your delivery.
While Prime Pantry is widely used in the US, the actual articles available vary by location. Be sure to specify your delivery location to ensure that the items you want are available in your area.
. 4 Start shopping.
After you have activated your membership, you can start your shopping spree. You can identify suitable pantry items as they are all marked with the Prime Pantry logo below their prices. Prime Pantry members are also eligible for special offers, coupons, and special promotions that are not available to other Prime members.
. 5 Continue to checkout.
When you're ready, just click on "Proceed to Checkout". You get free shipping on orders over $ 10 (which is pretty easy to get). If you do not reach this threshold, you will need to pay a shipping fee of $ 5.99.
If you get interrupted in the middle of the store, never fear! You can easily save the contents of your order by clicking "Save all Prime Pantry items for later". You can always return to your box when you are ready to proceed.
We should note that your Prime Pantry box has a limit of 45 pounds. After all, the service is meant for smaller, more convenient orders. Amazon also uses land-based shipping because of the size and weight of these boxes, which means it can take between one and four days to arrive. And unfortunately, Prime Pantry does not deliver dorms.
