Though I’m a seasoned Amazon deal-finder, I’m just starting to realize the savings that can be had using Amazon’s Prime Pantry!
Prime Pantry offers essential grocery, personal care and cleaning items in everyday sizes (not bulk as is often the case with Amazon) and is only available to Amazon Prime Members. Right out of the gate there doesn’t seem to be much benefit of ordering from Prime Pantry – there is a $5.99 delivery fee per box and prices are comparable to what you
would pay in your local grocery or big-box store. But if you use my tips found below you can easily find fantastic savings with Prime Pantry orders!
My basic strategy is to:
- Find 5 items that I would normally buy at the store that get my entire order shipped for free
- Search the Prime Pantry coupons for any good deals I can find to add to my order
For the past few months Amazon has been offering free shipping on a Prime Pantry order when you buy five select items. I easily been able to find five things I would normally buy at the grocery store that cost roughly the same on Prime Pantry to add to my delivery. As an example, here are the five things I added to my order today:
Nature Valley Oat’s ‘n Dark Chocolate Granola Bar, 6 Count – $2.12 after clipping the $0.50 off coupon
Lysol Clean & Fresh Multi-Surface Cleaner, Sparkling Lemon and Sunflower Essence, 40 Fl Oz – $2.10 after clipping the 15% off coupon
Lysol Cling Gel Toilet Bowl Cleaner, Country Scent,Twin Pack, 24 Fluid Ounce each, 2 Count – $3.16 after clipping the 15% off coupon
Now I’ll get free shipping on my order when I enter the code PANTRYFEB at checkout. The prices on these items are actually very competitive, so I’m already getting a good deal.
Now I start checking out the Prime Pantry coupons to see if there is anything I can use that is a good price after coupon savings. I found 5 more items that were super deals in just a few minutes of looking, including CoverGirl eye shadow for only $0.54 and Old Spice Deodorant for only $0.69!
And here is the impressive list of discounts in my cart when I go to check out. I figured that I overall saved about 50%, so I’m getting $40 worth of stuff I’d buy anyway for only $20. Plus it will show up at my doorstep in a few days. No complaining here!
