Once a Prime member, you can 45 pounds of groceries shipped in everyday sizes
The grocery stores might not be so happy with Amazon all set to provide the best of the comforts to their customers and now they are head on targetting with the grocery stores. They have doing quite well with their same-day delivery service and the Dash gadget which lets you restore your pantry. And now it was time to go a notch further. Amazon is offering new program called Prime Pantry which is going to compete with retail giants such as Walmart and Costco. We had been hearing about Amazon's pantry service since quite some time and till last year these were merely rumors.
Once you become a Prime member and you are living in any one of the 48 contiguous states, then you can ship 45 pounds' worth of household essentials for a fee of only $6. However, these items you order will have to be in everyday quantities and not bulk sizes, which is pretty much acceptable and not a catch at all. And this flat fee of $6 will be in addition to the payment you will have to make in order to become a Prime member. As Amazon stated, the products available for sale this way would include "popular soft drinks and bottled water, a new range of paper and laundry products in popular pack sizes, single boxes of breakfast cereal, potato chips, convenience-sized personal care products and more."
Once you will begin placing your order, Amazon will guide you to ensure that you stay within the limit and for this purpose, there will a cardboard box on display which will keep filling up as you add your goods and it will show how much room is still left. Though you can have all the gummy bears and fruits you want but this service is rather attractive for use with bulkier items which usually donot ship in for free.
