So I bet you’ve been wondering, “Does Laura still like her Amazon Prime Pantry membership?” Oh hey, thanks for asking.
I’ve been Prime Pantry-ing for almost two months now, and not only do I like it, I probably like it too much.
It makes my life so easy!! Well, at least it makes life easier. Especially the parts of life that involve baby wipes, canned pineapple, and ketchup.
Unfortunately, it has me so spoiled that when I have to actually go to the store for fresh food I’m like, “Waaaa!!! Why can’t Prime Pantry bring me frozen chicken and fresh greens? I can’t believe I actually have to go TO THE STORE and GET A CART and PUSH IT AROUND and SELECT MY BANANAS.”
So yeah. Amazon Prime Pantry and I are becoming best buds. And she is completely spoiling me by dropping so many of my groceries directly onto my porch two days after I order them.
What I love about Amazon Prime Pantry
- The membership gives free shipping on any pantry order over $10. This means that every time I think of just a few items we need, I put them in the cart, complete my order, and have the groceries delivered for free in just a couple days. This is faster than I can keep up with laundry, and it keeps my Walmart list from taking up an entire notebook.
- Regarding the Walmart list, I’ve found that if I can possibly get it from Amazon at a comparable price (or sometimes less, wooo!), I will absolutely get it at Amazon. I prefer this for one huge reason: taking little ones to the store is sometimes difficult and my shopping cart has very little room for groceries after filling it with a diaper bag, a kindergartener, and a rolly-polly baby.
- Amazon Prime Pantry has almost every non-refrigerated food item I could possibly need, and I even found napkins with jokes on them, so wiping our faces is much more hilarious. Score.
- The prices are pretty much the same as I was getting at Walmart, sometimes even cheaper.
How to save money with Amazon Prime Pantry
I will admit that while I really, really love to save money, my primary reason for joining Prime Pantry really was the convenience it provides during this season in life. But all the convenience wouldn’t appeal to me if the prices weren’t reasonable. AND, there are some really fun ways to save extra beyond the already reasonably priced offers.
- They offer “Buy 5 Save $5” items. There’s a huge selection of these 5 for $5 off goodies, so I click through them all, choose what we need, and when the total of those items equals 5, a beautiful $5 gets knocked off my order total.
- They offer those fantastic little green clicky coupons. Oh how I love the green clicky coupons. They give an extra % off, or a dollar amount off, and it turns into a lovely little bonus at check-out.
- Sometimes there’s a green clicky coupon INSIDE the “Buy 5 Save $5” section! So I can save a % off that product and I’ll get an extra dollar off too if I get a total of 5 of those items (which I always do, because why wouldn’t I?).
We all have different needs, but if you feel that Amazon Prime Pantry might be a help for you as it is for me, I do recommend it! You can check it out here.
Also, you might find this post helpful: Why I Decided to Have an Amazon Prime Pantry Membership. In that post, I wrote more about how their program works and why I decided to give it a try. Now that I’ve been using it for a couple of months, it’s fun to report back and share that it’s working so well for us!
Try it for free?
Regular price for Prime Pantry is $4.99/month, a price I am finding to be very worth it to pay! But it’s pretty cool that Amazon offers a free 30-day trial period so you can check it out without the fee to see how it works for you! —>
And with that, I will sign off and go get my newest Prime Pantry boxes off the porch. Wooo!
