Amazon is adding another feature to its Prime membership program: groceries. Members can now fill a box with groceries weighing up to 45 pounds and have it shipped to them for $5.99.
The service is called Prime Pantry and features a wider selection of items you can get in a grocery store, as well as bulk items you might buy online or at a warehouse store. As you shop, the Prime Pantry site shows you how much space each item takes up in the grocery box and how much room is left. The items are shipped within one to four business days.
Recently, Amazon added a video streaming service to the mix, even as it increased its annual membership price to $99 from $79.
