Did “FREE” get your attention? As a college student, I find it hard to resist anything that is advertised as FREE, so I decided to give AmazonFresh a try. Amazon offers Prime to college students for $49.99 a year. I also have the Amazon Prime Visa Card. As a Prime Card holder, I was offered 15% cash back on any AmazonFresh order through September. AmazonFresh is normally $14.99 a month for college students with AmazonPrime, but Amazon offers a FREE 30 day trial. On top of that using the promo code 25FRESH gets you $25 off your first AmazonFresh order over $100.
My order came out to $79.97 after the promo code. Then I’ll also get 15% cash-back on my Amazon Prime Card.
I was expecting a Amazon van to deliver my groceries, but no. Just a regular woman in a red VW. My cold food arrived well. The unboxing or un-bagging I suppose, was super exciting. My groceries arrived on time and in these well designed, sturdy, and green totes.
I always want to be the first to try things, so when I found out I can have ice cream delivered to my house I did it! Ice cream, ground turkey, some coffee creamer and everything else pictured below. My bread wasn’t smashed nor was my ice cream melted. I’d say this was a successful first online shopping trip!
Will I be ordering from AmazonFresh again? Maybe. Honestly I did not find anything that was cheaper on AmazonFresh compared to Walmart, but was I surprised? No, Walmart’s low prices are hard to beat. One thing I do appreciate is that you don’t have to worry about driving all the way to the grocery store to buy something that might be out of stock. I also want to add that my closest Walmart is 20 minutes away, it is always a clustered mess, and doesn’t have a quarter of the things that I purchased online with Amazon. AmazonFresh is quick and spot on. It’s really up to you if you wanna pay the small difference.
Some of the things I ended up purchasing:
