How Does Prime Pantry Work?

Disclosure Statement

If you’re wondering what Prime Pantry is or how it works, you’re in the right place.

What is Prime Pantry?
With Prime Pantry, Prime members can shop online for grocery and household items in everyday sizes. This add-on service is only available to current Amazon Prime members. In addition to everyday low prices, Prime Pantry also offers a number of e-coupons and special promotions on a wide selection of snacks, breakfast foods, beverages, beauty, personal care items and household products, and more.

How does Prime Pantry work?
Add items with the special Prime Pantry logo to your cart. When you are ready to checkout, Prime Pantry orders shop at a flat rate of $5.99 per box. If you spend $35 or more, you get FREE shipping.

How can I get free shipping on Prime Pantry?
When you spend $35 or more on a Prime Pantry order, you automatically qualify for free shipping. If you would like to get free shipping without buying $35 worth of products, you can sign up for a free one-month trial of Prime Pantry membership (regularly $4.99/month), which entitles you to free shipping on orders of $10 or more. Get a free one-month trial of Prime Pantry to see how this program works for you.

What is the difference between Prime Pantry and Subscribe & Save?
Amazon’s Subscribe & Save program is largely for bulk orders which are shipped according to your preferred delivery schedule. You receive a 5% discount for every subscription, or a 15% discount on all subscriptions when you have five or more active in one month. Amazon Pantry, on the other hand, is for single packages of everyday items. If you don’t need a case of something, then Prime Pantry is your best bet.

Is Prime Pantry worth it?
With Prime Pantry, Amazon Prime members enjoy the convenience and savings of low-priced online shopping without having to buy in bulk. You can order everyday sizes, such as a single box of cereal, along with other household staples, like cleaning supplies, and shelf-stable snacks. By combining your purchases into a single order worth $35 or more, you never pay for shipping. Given the convenience and cost-savings, I definitely think it’s worth giving Prime Pantry a try.

Will Prime Pantry order be delivered in two days?
Due to the size and weight of Prime Pantry boxes, they are shipped via ground shipping and may take from 1-4 business days to arrive. As a result, at this time, Prime Pantry boxes cannot be shipped to Alaska or Hawaii. Nor can they be delivered to PO boxes.

Can I add non-Prime Pantry items to my box?
No, only Prime Pantry items will be ship together. In addition, only Prime Pantry items count toward the $10 Prime Pantry member or the $35 non-Prime Pantry member minimum for free shipping.

How do I get a FREE Prime Pantry Trial?
