Try this:

Amazon Pantry is a brand new benefit for Amazon Prime customers, offering exclusive access to low-priced, everyday essentials in everyday sizes, delivered to your door.

Adding your first Amazon Pantry item to your basket starts an Amazon Pantry box, and as you shop, you can see what percentage of an box each Pantry item fills. Pantry boxes are large and can hold up to 20kg of products, and as you check items off your list, we will continuously track and show you how full your box is.

You can buy as much or as little as you want for a delivery fee of £2.99 for your first Amazon Pantry box and 99p for each additional box in the same order.

How does it work?

Here's how it works:

1. Visit amazon.co.uk/pantry to explore the range of products available from Amazon Pantry

2. Add your first Amazon Pantry product to your basket to start your Amazon Pantry box.

3. Keep adding products to your Amazon Pantry box until it's full. As you shop, we will continuously show you how much space you have left.

4. Fill as much of your first Amazon Pantry box as you like up to 100%, then either start a second box, or proceed to checkout.

5. We will deliver your Amazon Pantry box to your door the next day for a flat fee of £2.99 for the first Amazon Pantry Box and 99p for each additional box in the same order.

Hmm interesting

Most items are actually more expensive or similar prices. Do they not have offers on?

Postage not free anymore then?

Curious - £2.99 for delivery - for Prime customers who have paid either £39, £59 or - most people £79 - to get exactly that, free delivery.

pay £5 a month for as many deliveries per month from asda as i like

Even more curiously is the fluctuation in products that are almost identical - yet they do not say 'sale' etc. Most supermarkets discount the range the same amount - or at least make it clear there is a sale on one particular item yet Amazon seemingly do not make this clear.

Just from 2 minutes of looking:

Fairy Antibacterial Action Eucalyptus 383ml

Another rip off from Amazon,you already pay £79 to be a Prime customer to get Free delivery now they are charging an extra £2.99 for delivery!!!!! how is that fair,they are ripping customers off twice and the goods they are selling are not cheaper then supermarkets(in most cases actually more expensive)and not as comprehensive as most major supermarkets are offering,I see this doomed to fail

only in selected areas though?

Expect this offer to be quickly snapped up by Apple customers

Totally failing to see the benefit...and this should be free for prime. Cold!

Same here, i don't see the point. Less choice, prices aren't cheaper, and you have to pay at least £2.99 for delivery.

It's a decent idea, but surely a minimum spend rather than charging for delivery would have been wiser.

Surely an "idea" is something new. There is nothing new here that supermarkets haven't been doing for years. If a company is going to take on the supermarkets then they need to come up with a unique selling point. There isn't one!

Summed up nicely

Pantry pantie! (_;)

I think you're missing the point. The USP here is Amazon grocery pricing which, if you pick the right items, will save you very large amounts of money on supermarket prices.

Hardly - very much a Note 4 man.
But clearly I know a lot more about the unbeatable deals that can be had amongst the Amazon food items if you know where to look than you do - despite that.

So you can't actually back your statement up with just one example. Wow

Given that you've bothered to post just 13 deals in nearly 4 years I don't think this site owes you much. Use the search facility. If you don't like Amazon Pantry, don't use it - it's a simple enough decision for you.

So you'd rather deflect than stand by your original statement.

Just re-read the post above. I'm not wasting any more time on you. X)

This isn't even a deal, it just looks like an advert to me. Especially when you can't back up anything you say with just ONE example.

don't they have a very quick delivery time.

I wonder how the major supermarkets like Asda, Tesco, Sainsburys etc will compete if Amazon offers next day supermarket deliveries?

Oh, I forgot. They already do same/next day grocery deliveries

I ended up there by chance and found some very nice offers so was coming to share and found this post:
Tetley Kenyan Gold 75 Tea Bags £0.69 (Usually over £2)
Kikkoman Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce, 150ml £0.79 (Usually over £2)

Some other random things I ordered:
Thirst Pockets Decorated, 2 Rolls £0.90
Domestos Extended Germ-Kill Original Bleach with Ctac 2L £1.50
Fairy Original Washing Up Liquid Lemon 780ml £1.50

Might have a look to see if there are any good offers.

Cant remember the other supermarkets but you can get next daydelivery slots for £1 (particular slots)with asda.

but I have prime....why would I pay for delivery???

Bought a few things after clicking into it by accident on amazon. Mostly 2ltr fizzy drinks to deliver to my grandads care home at £1 each. Yes I could have them delivered by supermarket but they're not a oound there at the mo (have sains delivery voucher for the year) so its saving me a lot as I don't drive. I do dislike spending the extra £2.99 but then I'd be sending £20 on a return taxi to get it to him (and i dont need to carry it there either!) So def handy here.
