Grocery shopping has always been a bit of a bugbear for me. If it’s just running into Safeway to grab a few of this week’s specials plus 2 gallons of milk, fine. But when it is time to do a big shop at WinCo…
There ends up not enough time and energy to do a big shop AND put it all away. Which is why I have recently started using Amazon’s subscribe and save service, and this post will hopefully get longer and longer, as I add more items to my subscription.
So far I’m loving it!
I have only started with 8 items, and I’ve only ordered a delivery every 3 months. I was expecting to pay a little more than WinCo prices for these items, but was very pleasantly surprised that they are either the same or even a bit less than what I pay at WinCo.
Although I put it in as one repeating order, the first order came in 3 batches, which also meant it was very easy to put away.
Here’s the current list:
Chewable multi-vitamins (Any other moms forget to buy these, and then feel guilty as?!)
Coffee (I don’t even want to admit how much we go through this…)
One thing I was really pleased about is that the combined weight of what I’ve bought. The fact of having this delivered to my door makes a huge difference.
When you order more than 5 items, you get a 15% discount off your whole order – well worth checking out what might be worth subscribing to!
Free shipping is only if it’s above a certain dollar amount, which is why I have it set at every 3 months. Once I have a few more items on this subscribe and save program, I’ll be able to schedule smaller deliveries for once a month and still qualify for free shipping.
Finally, last time I checked Amazon Fresh still wasn’t available where I live, but my friends in Seattle swear by it. They have a free 30-day trial going on right now, and I would love to hear from you if you decide to try it. You can sign up for the free trial here: AmazonFresh
Let me know how it goes!
