 How much does an AmazonFresh membership cost?

According to Amazon.com the cost of AmazonFresh is available to Prime members only for an additional $14.99 per month.  If you spend less than $50 on an order, even with an active subscription, you will be charged $9.99 for each delivery.

Also, in addition to the Amazon Fresh Add-on, you will also need an Amazon Prime membership for $99 per year.

AmazonFresh membership overview

AmazonFresh offers two delivery options: Attended Delivery and Doorstep Delivery. Most clients use the Doorstep Delivery option. With the Doorstep Delivery option, one gets to choose a three hour time window which works best for their schedule and one does not even have to be at home.  AmazonFresh leaves the items on the client’s doorstep in temperature-controlled tote bags which it then picks up on the next delivery.  With the Attended Delivery option, one gets to pick a one-hour appointment whenever you will be at your home to receive the deliveries.  Some benefits of Attended Delivery include shorter one-hour delivery windows, no totes or other shipping supplies to store at your home, in-person delivery straight to the kitchen, delivery to buildings with secure entries or limited access, and alcohol orders with your delivery.  Alcohol orders are not allowed for doorstep delivery.

Aside from ordering directly from Amazon, you can browse and order from more than 1,000 items at a local Whole Foods store.

Tips to know

Items ordered through AmazonFresh are available for home delivery either on the same day or next day, depending on the time of the order, as well as the availability of trucks as well as your availability for delivery.

AmazonFresh currently services the greater Seattle, San Francisco, and Southern California areas.  You should check your address to see whether it is within their delivery area.

AmazonFresh will not deliver to dorm rooms.

How can I save money?

Eligible customers who are not Prime members yet can sign up for a 30-day free trial with the Fresh Add-on.

AmazonFresh isn’t the only service in town, so be sure to compare other options like Instacart, Shipt, Google Express or your local grocery store.  All of these service providers, just like AmazonFresh, may not be available in your area.
