To answer Bear’s question two posts back, I looked it up on Amazon. Here’s what I learned:
About Prime Pantry Delivery
Prime Pantry is an exclusive benefit for Prime Members. Prime Members pay a flat delivery fee of $5.99 per Prime Pantry box and Prime Pantry items are all shipped together.
Place a Prime Pantry Order
Prime Pantry is a store where Prime members can shop for groceries and household products in everyday package sizes (for example, a single box of cereal). The introduction of Prime Pantry allowed Amazon to expand its selection and offer thousands of items to Prime Members that are cost prohibitive to ship for free individually.
About the Prime Pantry Box Percentage
You can fill the virtual Pantry box as little or as much as you’d like before placing your order. Pantry items ship for free by selecting just five qualifying items out of a selection of thousands.
Prime Pantry Packaging and Shipping
All Prime Pantry orders are shipped using ground shipping and generally arrive within 1-4 business days. You will be given a delivery date at checkout.
The $5.99 Prime Pantry Delivery Fee
Pantry items ship for free by selecting just five qualifying items out of a selection of thousands. If you have not selected five qualifying items per pantry box, there is a flat $5.99 delivery fee per box.
