When it comes to groceries, our home is on a pretty tight budget. That means that buying quality groceries at a good price is usually more important than the convenience of things like grocery delivery services. I loved using Peapod after my son was born, but the groceries came at a higher price than a trip to the grocery store, so I did not continue to use their service. Recently, Amazonfresh moved into our area, and I saw that they were offering $25 off your first order of $100. You all know that I count on Amazon to deliver great prices on my household staples, so I decided to check out this Amazonfresh service as well. Keep reading for my thoughts and Amazonfresh review.

What is Amazonfresh?
Amazonfresh is a grocery delivery service. You select a two hour delivery window, shop the Amazonfresh store right on the website, and the groceries are delivered right to your door. I wasn’t able to find a list of which areas Amazonfresh delivers to right now, but you can easily find out by going to Amazonfresh and typing in your zip code.

My Shopping Experience
As I mentioned, there is a promotion going on where you get $25 off your first order of $100 or more. Of course, I wanted to take complete advantage and get exactly $100 worth of products. It took me a while of browsing through to choose what I wanted to buy. I had a few meals in mind that I was able to shop for by searching the items that I needed. After that, there were just so many options and I spent some time digging through for the best deals that I could find.
There are all of the departments that you would normally find in a grocery store including fresh produce, dairy, meat, and frozen foods! Everything that we ordered was of the same quality that I would have chosen myself if I picked up the fruits and vegetables at the store.
That $100 worth of groceries went a long way! I was pleasantly surprised by the prices of the items that I shopped through on Amazonfresh. I am usually an Aldi shopper, so the prices were a little higher than I normally pay. Obviously, the price varied based on what you were looking for and what was onside, but overall they pretty much right in line with what I would find at my local grocery store. Amazon did include a $5.00 driver tip, but you can remove or change that amount if you want.
There is a separate membership for Amazonfresh, even for prime members. The membership is $14.99/month which includes free delivery on orders over $50. Your first month is free, so if you’re not sure if it’s worth the cost, you can always check it out.
Overall, I really enjoyed using Amazonfresh. I was able to easily order groceries and have them delivered right to my home. It was super convenient and not too costly.
I personally enjoy taking Peanut to the store and browsing the aisles. We have a small family of three, so we only grocery shop once a week or so. Right now, I will probably skip out on the Amazonfresh membership. I will definitely keep it in my back pocket for a month when we have a lot going on and want to pay a tiny bit more for the convenience. This would be a really great tool for family who just had a new baby and wants to skip the grocery store.
