I discovered this recently. Amazon Prime Pantry is a newer service offered by Amazon You can order a lot of essential household things and groceries and there is a flat rate shipping of $5.99 per box. The boxes are pretty large.

The boxes hold a lot. My box wasn’t quiet full and I ordered a lot of stuff.
When you are placing your order they tell how much space in your box (in percentage) that each item will take up. Your cart also shows you how much space is left in your box. I believe mine was something like 95% full.

The prices on products in Prime Pantry are..uneven. As is product selection. Its clear Amazon cut a deal with certain companies. For example the only pet foods available are all Purina products. Since our animals got extremely sick from Purina products in the past we no longer purchase anything from that company. So, we can’t get our pet food from Prime Pantry. Which is unfortunate since that is something we purchase a lot that I’d love to get in the mail instead of having to make a special trip to pet store for it. Cat Litter is something else I wish was available since the Dye and Perfume free kind I really need is no longer available around my town.
When placing my order I tried to stick to things that were priced lower than or equal to the prices I could find things for around here. There are some things way over priced but I imagine if you can’t buy those products near your home or if you have a hard time getting out to shop (as I do) then I could see ordering them being convenient even at an inflated price.
This was my order summary:
I’m definitely satisfied with this service. Everything came quickly. I ordered on February 27th and received my order today on March 4th. They guarantee delivery in a week(ish), I believe. If you want more than will fit in one box you can order as many boxes as you want. You will just be charged $5.99 shipping per box. So, its definitely the best value to fill your box(es) up.
My only complaint is the lack of variety. I’m hoping they offer more brands and more items eventually. I’d really like to see an expansion in the pet products and a bigger variety of gluten free items and hard to find brands.
Overall, I give it a C+ for the moment.
