What I Think After Trying Amazon Prime Pantry
Last week, I placed my first order with Amazon Prime Pantry. As a bargain shopper (and borderline cheapskate), I’ve been skeptically keeping my distance. But after trying it, I’m pretty impressed and think I’ll try it again from time to time.
Here’s what I noticed, what I didn’t like, and what I DID like.
Not everything is a good deal.
In fact, many things aren’t. But some things are great deals (here’s a link where you can browse everything they have on sale), and some of those great deals even have coupons with them.
I really like coupons.
The toothbrushes were my favorite deal. It was a 6-pack of Colgate toothbrushes, for $3.75, with a $1.25 coupon. That’s a GREAT deal for an item we use a relatively large quantity of, on a regular basis.
What I didn’t like:
I didn’t like that there was a list of “qualifying” items that I had to pick from, in order to receive the free shipping. (Otherwise, it would have been a $5.99 fee, which definitely encouraged me to go ahead and find 1 or 2 other things we needed, since I figured I was gonna spend that $5.99 either way.)
Toward the end, it felt like I ended up rummaging, trying to find SOMETHING useful to buy.
What I DID like:
I like that in the end I *did* find plenty of items, at good prices, to make it worthwhile to place the order. These were things we’d have ended up buying anyway, elsewhere, and most likely for higher prices.
Most of these items pictured had a coupon, so the prices don’t reflect the actual price paid:
