Amazon offers free grocery delivery with some Prime orders


Amazon Prime members will no longer get free delivery on some grocery orders starting next month.

Amazon Fresh orders under $150 no longer qualify for free shipping.

Customers will be charged between $3.95 and $9.95 depending on order size, the company said in an email to Prime members on Friday.

The new policy will apply from February 28th.

The company is currently offering members free grocery delivery on orders over $35, with the exception of New York where it’s $50.

“We will continue to offer convenient two-hour delivery windows on all orders, and customers in some areas can select a longer six-hour delivery window for a reduced fee,” Amazon said in the email.

Prime has more than 200 million members worldwide paying $139 per year or $14.99 per month.

Under the new policy, the company said shipping costs will be $3.95 for orders between $100 and $150, $6.95 for orders between $50 and $100, and $9.95 for orders under $50. Amazon Fresh deliveries over $150 remain free.

The move comes as the company seeks to cut costs in the current economic environment.

Amazon joined numerous companies this month and cut its workforce.

The e-commerce giant announced it has cut unprofitable areas of its business, suspended hiring and laid off 18,000 employees.
