Amazon Grocery Shopping

When I first heard of Amazon’s grocery department, I wasn’t so sure what they were selling, but definitely not milk and fresh veggies. Those are what I considered as grocery. Last week I received a promotion email from Amazon with a $10 off of $49 or more coupon GROCERY2 for its grocery service. So I decided to give it a try. My daughter also emptied her cheerios box anyway.

When I searched “organic” in the grocery section, I was surprised that more than 1000 results turned out. That’s a huge inventory. Browsing though the search results, I found that most of the organic items are cereals, crackers, and soups. I think this is a good strategy as the local grocery stores are unlikely to have such a large collection. I went through every page of the search results and put two items in my shopping cart: Nature's Path Organic Crackers (8-oz box, pack of 12) for $24.29 and Cascadian Farms Cereal Purely O’s (10-oz box, pack of 6) for $16.14, after the coupon savings (actually these two items were in two separate orders with other items in order to reach the $49 minimum spending for the coupon). My order arrived several days later and my daughter likes the cracker and cereal. To get an idea of my savings, I went to my local ShopRite yesterday and found that the sameNature's Path organic cracker is priced at $4.49 a box and $3.49 for a 12-oz box ofCascadian Farms cereal.

The coupon code is still valid if you also want to do some grocery shopping at Amazon.
