In 2014 Amazon began their new service called Prime Pantry. It allows Amazon Prime Members to put as many items as you can in one box (up to 45 pounds) and have it delivered for $5.99. And their selection has greatly increased in the last 12 months!
The Amazon Pantry store features grocery and household items, often at a discount and with coupons available.
What Products Are Available?
One of the best things about Prime Pantry is that they have TONS of name brand items. It would be easy to compare the prices of items at your favorite store with the online prices. Especially if you live hours away from a grocery store or don’t particularly enjoy shopping with little ones this can be a great chance to get some things delivered. However if you like generic items they won’t be available.
This won’t replace all your shopping trips because hopefully you eat some fresh fruits, vegetables and meats in your house.
How Does Amazon Prime Pantry Work?
You can do your Prime Pantry shopping all at once, or over the course of several days. Each time you add a Pantry item to your cart, Amazon will tell you what percentage of a Pantry box it fills based on its size and weight.
Remember this is ground shipping so it will take about 5 days to arrive.
Can I Really Save Using Prime Pantry?
I think Amazon Pantry offers some great potential to save both time and money. I don’t like that even thought you pay for Amazon Prime you still have to pay a flat rate of $5.99 for shipping.
That being said the products with the Prime Pantry Coupons definitely offer the biggest savings. Some of those products can certainly be cheaper than buying them at your local grocery store or big box store — even with shipping.
If you use coupons on everything this might not be the money saving way to go but since some items don’t have high value coupons this could be a chance to save!
