Amazon is one of the nations leading companies and is currently the world’s biggest online retailer passing Wal-Mart. It offers everything from cheap goods, Kindles, Fire TV, and free two-day shipping to their own cloud.
As if they didn’t already offer enough, they are now introducing a new way to grocery shop called Amazon Fresh. Find out if Amazon Fresh is as great as everything else this company offers.
1. Free Same-Day & Early Morning Delivery
Free shipping may sound like the most convincing thing ever, but in order to get this you must spend at least $50 on your purchase. Same day delivery right to your doorstep is ideal, but the delivery may not be available depending on the time of your order and the availability of trucks.
2. There’s an endless selection
This market offers around 500,000 everyday essentials which may seem infinite. It has everything from coffee, bananas, ice cream, and appliances along with an array of other products such as pet products. The next time your dog gives you his sad puppy eyes begging you not to go to work, you can just order him a toy to keep him happy while you’re gone.
3. You can still shop locally
For people who love to shop at farmers markets and enjoy the organic feel to their food, this is a great new option. Through the market you can order already prepared goods from local markets in your area. Impress your friends with all the low-key items that you come across.
4. It saves time
As the cliché states, “time is money.” This is indeed true. As a busy college student spending time at the grocery store can feel like a burden. Some of us don’t have cars and lugging tons of groceries on the bus or our bikes can become a hassle. With Amazon Fresh you can order your entire grocery list from most devices you already own.
5. Exclusive Prime Fresh membership
Everyone loves free two-day shipping, but Amazon Prime can get pricey. In order to use Fresh, it is now mandatory to have a membership. Compared with other grocery places like Costco that charge $50 for a yearly membership, this one will cost you $299 per year. That’s equivalent to a new iPad or probably 5 weeks worth of groceries.
6. There are coupons
Being broke leaves everyone wanting to be an “extreme couponer.” Most grocery stores offer a weekly list of things on sale convincing consumers that they have the best prices, and Amazon follows this precedent.
7. Prices are the same as retailers
Amazon is known for having some of the lowest prices when it comes to purchasing products, but their Fresh market is pretty equal to most grocery stores. Although, you’re not wasting any gas, or time driving to the store with this supermarket. In actuality, shopping on Amazon may actually be cheaper.
