Did you know you can save money by buying your groceries online from Amazon.com? Here’s the scoop.
What Groceries Does Amazon Offer?
Amazon Grocery offers all kinds of non-perishable groceries ranging from coffee and tea, breakfast foods, international foods, snacks, candy, seasonal foods, natural and organic, chocolate, prepared foods, seasonings and spices, and more! They also offer a selection of preserved seafood, meats, and cheeses.
How Long Does Shipping Take?
Like with any online order from Amazon, you can choose your shipping method and price. The standard shipping for Amazon Grocery takes 3-5 days. You can upgrade to one or two-day shipping for an additional cost. You can also get free shipping by subscribing to an item, spending a certain amount, upgrading to Amazon Prime, or looking out for other special shipping promotions.
Are the Savings Worth It?
Absolutely. If ordering groceries online works for you, then Amazon Grocery is a great way to save. You can also get additional savings on bulk grocery items, such as four 18-ounce boxes of Kellogg’s Frosted Mini Wheats for only $10.32! That’s over 42% savings.
You can also subscribe to items you buy regularly, such as toilet paper or laundry detergent for example. By subscribing to a product, you agree to receive automatic shipments every 1, 2, 3, or 6 months. When you subscribe to a product you will also receive an additional 15% off the item’s price at the time of shipment. All subscription items also receive free shipping! You will be notified when each subscription item is ready to ship and your credit card will be charged only when the item has shipped. You can cancel you subscription at any time.
Does Amazon Grocery Accept Coupons?
Although Amazon Grocery does not accept manufacturer grocery coupons or outside coupon codes, they do offer Amazon Coupons without the hassle of clipping. All you have to do to redeem a coupon is click on the deal your interested in and then add that item to your cart. The coupon discount will automatically be added to your total when you check-out.
I must admit, I was a little hesitant to start ordering groceries online but now that I’ve started, I can’t stop! Ordering groceries from Amazon is so quick and easy and you never even have to leave the house. You can also compare prices easily from your computer to make sure you’re getting the best deal possible.
