Update 11/13: Amazon now accepts SNAP/EBT in New York for Amazon Fresh orders
Originally posted October 29th
Amazon will no longer charge Prime Members $14.99/month for Amazon Fresh. The fresh food delivery service which began in 2016 offers groceries and more delivered right to your door! Its available in over 2000 cities across the country and will now be included with your Prime Membership.
If you were already an Amazon Fresh subscriber, you’ll be automatically added to the free membership. If you’ve never been a Fresh member, you’ll have to click here to sign up (some locations may have to wait for an invite).
One and two hour delivery windows will be available in most cities. You’ll need to order at least $35 worth of stuff to get free two-hour delivery. Orders under $35 will have a $5 fee. One hour deliveries will charge higher fees. EBT/SNAP cardholders will be able to use food stamps on Amazon Fresh orders.
This huge change by Amazon is their latest attempt to compete with Walmart who has their own Grocery Delivery Service called Delivery Unlimited for $98/year. As well as compete with private companies like Fresh Direct, Instacart and Shipt.
This new Prime Benefit will shoot toward the top of all Prime Benefits which now includes:
- Free one day shipping
- Unlimited video streaming from Prime Video
- Prime Music
- Unlimited Photo Storage
- Amazon Fresh
- & Much More
