So I bet you’ve been wondering, “Does Laura still like her Amazon Prime Pantry membership?” Oh hey, thanks for asking.
I’ve been Prime Pantry-ing for almost two months now, and not only do I like it, I probably like it too much.
It makes my life so easy!! Well, at least it makes life easier. Especially the parts of life that involve baby wipes, canned pineapple, and ketchup.
Unfortunately, it has me so spoiled that when I have to actually go to the store for fresh food I’m like, “Waaaa!!! Why can’t Prime Pantry bring me frozen chicken and fresh greens? I can’t believe I actually have to go TO THE STORE and GET A CART and PUSH IT AROUND and SELECT MY BANANAS.”
So yeah. Amazon Prime Pantry and I are becoming best buds. And she is completely spoiling me by dropping so many of my groceries directly onto my porch two days after I order them.
What I love about Amazon Prime Pantry
- The membership gives free shipping on any pantry order over $10. This means that every time I think of just a few items we need, I put them in the cart, complete my order, and have the groceries delivered for free in just a couple days. This is faster than I can keep up with laundry, and it keeps my Walmart list from taking up an entire notebook.
- Regarding the Walmart list, I’ve found that if I can possibly get it from Amazon at a comparable price (or sometimes less, wooo!), I will absolutely get it at Amazon. I prefer this for one huge reason: taking little ones to the store is sometimes difficult and my shopping cart has very little room for groceries after filling it with a diaper bag, a kindergartener, and a rolly-polly baby.
- Amazon Prime Pantry has almost every non-refrigerated food item I could possibly need, and I even found napkins with jokes on them, so wiping our faces is much more hilarious. Score.
- The prices are pretty much the same as I was getting at Walmart, sometimes even cheaper.
How to save money with Amazon Prime Pantry
I will admit that while I really, really love to save money, my primary reason for joining Prime Pantry really was the convenience it provides during this season in life. But all the convenience wouldn’t appeal to me if the prices weren’t reasonable. AND, there are some really fun ways to save extra beyond the already reasonably priced offers.
- They offer “Buy 5 Save $5” items. There’s a huge selection of these 5 for $5 off goodies, so I click through them all, choose what we need, and when the total of those items equals 5, a beautiful $5 gets knocked off my order total.
- They offer those fantastic little green clicky coupons. Oh how I love the green clicky coupons. They give an extra % off, or a dollar amount off, and it turns into a lovely little bonus at check-out.
- Sometimes there’s a green clicky coupon INSIDE the “Buy 5 Save $5” section! So I can save a % off that product and I’ll get an extra dollar off too if I get a total of 5 of those items (which I always do, because why wouldn’t I?).
We all have different needs, but if you feel that Amazon Prime Pantry might be a help for you as it is for me, I do recommend it! You can check it out here.
Also, you might find this post helpful: Why I Decided to Have an Amazon Prime Pantry Membership. In that post, I wrote more about how their program works and why I decided to give it a try. Now that I’ve been using it for a couple of months, it’s fun to report back and share that it’s working so well for us!
Try it for free?
Regular price for Prime Pantry is $4.99/month, a price I am finding to be very worth it to pay! But it’s pretty cool that Amazon offers a free 30-day trial period so you can check it out without the fee to see how it works for you! —>
And with that, I will sign off and go get my newest Prime Pantry boxes off the porch. Wooo!

This looks interesting. Thanks for sharing.
When I looked into it the details stated free shipping on Prime Pantry orders over $35. They may have changed the rules?
I’m still going to take a look at it and see if it’s worth it for our family.
Thank you again fir sharing.
Hmm, mine continually shows free shipping on all orders over $10. I’m searching for but can’t find a specific link for this!
I love green beans says
When I clicked on the link, it said prime pantry membership had been discontinued but if you already had it from the past, you could keep it if you wanted to. Too bad- sounded like a great value!
Whoa, really? I’m surprised and bummed!
Could you give a list of some of the things you like to buy from Prime Pantry? When I looked at it, it seems to be mostly processed foods. Thanks!
Yes! I get foods like:
Freeze dried fruit for the baby
Canned Fruit (100% fruit)
And other things too if I feel good about the ingredients!
Hi Laura! Do you have Walmart Pickup available in your area? We just started this at our Walmart and it has been absolutely life changing for me and all of my friends who have little ones! You shop using their grocery app (which is very user friendly), select a pick up time, and pick up your groceries. They guarantee the same prices you would receive in store, no tipping, and no moembership fee. On top of that, for every friend you refer that makes an account you receive a $10 off reward! I cannot rave about this enough. I pull into the parking lot and they walk instantly to my vehicle and load it for me. So far every order has been hassle free and just as I ordered. If they are sold out of an item they will upgrade you to the closest item to that item for the same price as the item you ordered. For example if you ordered great value frosted Minni wheats you would get the Kellogg’s frosted minni wheats instead for the same price. You can refuse any substitutions and you can customize all of this in your order ahead of time by selecting any items you do not want substitutes for. Anyway to be able to pull into Walmart and pull out again in a total of 5 to 10 minutes on my way home from a doc appointment with hungry kids in the car has been awesome! I also love that I can use their grocery app now to price check items in my store when purchasing something from another retailer. Thanks for the info on prime pantry, I’m going to check it out!
