Amazon Fresh Review

Last week was a super busy week at work and I ended up working double my normal hours (I'm usually a part time employee). While I loved working extra hours, I didn't like the fact that I didn't have time to go grocery shopping! On Friday night, I realized we had no food in the fridge and didn't have time to go to the store on Saturday. So, I pulled up Amazon Fresh on my phone and started adding items to my cart (while laying in bed)!

On Saturday, after work, we finished adding all of our groceries to our cart and set up a delivery date. They had a lot of different time slots for the next day so I selected between 7-10am. Unfortunately my cous cous wasn't going to be available during that time slot so I had to remove it from my cart (but I think they would have just delivered it at a later time if I chose to keep it.) On Sunday morning, around 8am, I heard someone set something outside my door and my husband opened the door to find our groceries sitting on our doorstep a couple minutes later.

At first both my husband and I were unsure about ordering produce and meat because we thought they would just give us whatever they had on hand, instead of picking out quality items. However, when we received our Amazon Fresh order we were thrilled to find that the produce they picked out was of top quality and the pound of meat was better than something we would find at the grocery store! The bananas were a little on the green side but that is just how my husband likes them so it was perfect. We are going to order more fruit with our next order to see if it is of equal quality.

Amazon Fresh is a little bit more expensive than going to the traditional grocery store. It is $14.99 per month on top of your prime membership and some of the produce, meat and dairy is a few dollars more than it would be at Safeway (Vons in California or Pubix in Florida). For example, a 1lb block of cheddar cheese is $7 on Fresh and $5 in our local store. But it wasn't too big of a difference for me to complain.

One complaint I have is that they weren't super careful while packing the food. Our bread got squished and the grapefruits were under some heavy items. Other than that, the food was all in perfect condition and everything from our order was in the bags!

I will definitely be using Amazon Fresh again for my grocery needs. I think it is perfect for the working household who doesn't always have time to go to the store and stock up. Has anyone else tried Amazon Fresh? Let me know your thoughts on it in the comments below!
