Summer is vacation time and our family is trying to squeeze everything we can in before school starts. Speaking of vacations and school, Prime Day promos have already begun and will run through July 17th, 2018. We love to use Amazon Now to get groceries delivered when we’re on a trip and aren’t near a grocery store.
That’s what we did at Universal Orlando. Instead of hitting up the gift shop or the hotel restaurant we used the Amazon Fresh app to order things we needed. They were delivered to the bell desk – but tip: try to meet your driver in the lobby so you don’t get a surcharge added (some hotels will add that on for the extra service).
There’s another Amazon service you can use to get groceries delivered to your home – Amazon Fresh. This is an ongoing subscription and now includes food from Whole Foods stores.
Amazon Fresh Coupon
Before I give more detail, check this out this coupon code for Amazon Fresh. It’s good until July 17, 2018.
We actually got Prime Now which is rumored to be merging with Amazon Fresh this year sometime. Prime Now is Amazon’s two-hour delivery service. Delivery is free for orders over $35. No subscription needed.
First, here’s what we got (among other things).
We got string cheese, yogurt, apple sauce pouches + other snacks. Oh and I ordered a charging cord for my phone because I forgot mine. The bags have ice packs in them to keep cool foods refrigerated. I met our driver and he was great! I would do it again and only wish we had Amazon Fresh at home – our city isn’t covered yet.
How Amazon Fresh Works
How Much Does Amazon Fresh Cost?
AmazonFresh is also a subscription and it’s an additional $15 a month, or $180 a year. Delivery is free if you spend over $50, but if you order less, Amazon will add a $10 delivery fee to your bill.
AmazonFresh currently delivers to homes in larger cities such as Boston, Baltimore, Dallas, Chicago, New York City, London, parts of California and New Jersey, and more. When you log into your Amazon account it will tell you if you’re eligible.
How to Cancel Amazon Fresh
If you want to cancel your subscription, you can do that on Amazon’s web site.
- Go to Your Account.
- Select “Manage Prime Membership.”
- Select “Manage Fresh Add-on” under the Fresh section. To end a paid membership, select End Membership on the left side. To cancel a free trial, select Do not continue.
Oh and if you need something to listen to in the car or on the plane, check out this killer deal on Audible right now:
I love listening to books as I drive or travel. I got this speaker that plugs into my phone (great bright colors) or it can be wireless with bluetooth. These white headphones are great for the kids to listen so they can listen to movies on their iPad – and Amazon Prime movies in the hotel room.
If you’re going to Universal Studios Orlando or camping in your back yard – we hope you’re summer is a fun one full of family time and making good memories! And take pictures!
