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.

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.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
