Amazon introduces $9.99 unlimited grocery delivery subscription with Prime

Amazon Prime members in the U.S. can order as many grocery deliveries as they like each month for an additional fee and meet a certain amount.

For an additional $9.99 per month, Prime members living in one of more than 3,500 locations will be able to access Amazon’s new grocery delivery subscription, the company said.

Unlimited delivery offered through this subscription, introduced Tuesday, applies to orders of at least $35.

Amazon says customers can order delivery from Amazon Fresh and Whole Foods Market, as well as “a variety of local grocers and specialty retailers” on the e-commerce giant’s site.

Amazon announced that it will offer Prime members “unlimited 30-minute pickup on orders of any size” and “1-hour delivery slots when available at no additional charge.” The company says customers will also have “priority access” to the “Recurrence” feature for Amazon Fresh and Whole Foods.

The subscription may be familiar to Prime members in Columbus, Denver and Sacramento, but Amazon said it piloted the option late last year.

“Subscriptions pay for themselves for less than $50 with a monthly delivery order from Whole Foods Market or a monthly delivery order from Amazon Fresh,” the company said.
