Amazon Launches Prime Pantry to Save you from the Grocery Store
April 24th, 2014
Going to the grocery store is a pain in the butt for many people. It’s hard to keep track of just what you are spending without resorting to using a calculator. If you have kids, that opens another world of issues when shopping. Never mind the pain of lugging all those bags home. Amazon has taken another step towards freeing you from ever having to go to the grocery store again.
Prime Pantry is a new service available just for Prime members that will let you order up non-perishable grocery items and have them delivered to your door. Prime Pantry has a huge variety of canned and boxed items along with drinks, snacks, and health products.
Only the 48 contiguous states can order, and unless you happen to live in an area served by AmazonFresh, you will still have to go to the store for milk, bread, and eggs along with other perishable items. Amazon Prime Pantry products ship to you in a box that will hold 45 pounds or 4 cubic feet of stuff for just $5.99(USD). As you add stuff to your cart, you can keep an eye on how full your box is and how much you are spending.
