Fact: Nothing beats the convenience of shopping for bulky pantry and household essentials from the comfort of your couch. But pricey site membership fees can quickly put a dent in monthly budgets, forcing most of us to instead brave yet another Sunday afternoon navigating a heavy grocery cart through packed aisles. Thankfully, Amazon just gave their Prime Pantry service a major rehaul, which means two things: savings and more savings!

The newly minted Amazon Pantry is open to ALL Amazon shoppers — yes, even those without a Prime membership. While Prime members can snag free shipping on orders over $35 or more, non-Prime members pay just a minimal $5.99 delivery fee to have their neatly packaged boxes conveniently dropped off at their door.

Plus, with Amazon’s newly added Shop & Save program, you shave off an additional 5% on any combination of five pantry items and a sweet 10% on 10 or more items. While Amazon prices are already competitively low, the extra discounts are an added bonus when you’re doing a major monthly shop.

Lastly, for a limited time, you can add pantry staples like cereals, juice boxes, and snacks to your cart for just $1. Keep in mind that it’s just one item per customer, but it works like a grocery discount bin.

If you aren’t already an Amazon Prime member, you can sign up for a free trial and enjoy free shipping on your Amazon Pantry orders. You’ll also get the benefits of shopping for groceries on Amazon Fresh , which is included with Prime membership.
