I logged onto amazon this morning and was greeted with a message. Try Amazon Prime Now and save $10. Well, I am not one to turn down a good deal so I clicked over to see what they had.
Amazon Prime Now is a service offered in select cities (those closest to distribution centers), that allows Amazon Prime Members to get FREE 2 Hour Shipping on orders of $20+. Of course, this is for select items, but I love my Amazon Prime so I thought I would give it a whirl!
So the first thing I noticed was they have groceries! Not just pantry goods, but cold stuff too….Milk, cheese, Udi’s Gluten Free Bread, and so much more.
Next thing I noticed was the prices. They were comparable to my local grocery store (Publix), and in some cases lower by over a $1!! OK, I am hooked. So I placed an order. I bought everything you see pictured and after the $10 coupon code I spent about $24. Not bad at all!
Amazon Prime Now suggests a tip for your driver, but says drivers don’t accept cash. So they let you attach a tip to your order. You can come back and adjust your tip for 48 hours after your delivery!! I don’t mind tipping for the fact that I didn’t have to go to the grocery store.
I hit send on my order at 6:50 AM. By 8:15 AM my order was at my door. A few fun things that you should know.
- You can track your driver all the way to your door with GPS.
- If you order cold items you need to be home for delivery.
- You can choose your 2 hour delivery window.
- Shipping is free for orders over $20
- You must be an Amazon Prime member to use it.
- They have all kinds of items, not just groceries.
I am in love with this service. I can think of so many times it will come in handy. If Amazon Prime Now is available in your area use coupon code 10PRIMENOW to save $10 off your first order.
Have you already tried Amazon Prime Now? I would love to hear what you think.
