How Does Amazon Prime Pantry Work?

Amazon Prime Pantry has a standard $5.99 delivery fee for every Prime Pantry box ordered regardless of the weight of the box. Prime Pantry boxes vary in size and can hold up to 45 pounds. Your order will be packaged in an appropriate-sized box, based on the dimensions and weight of the items purchased. Depending on your order, the box could be as small as a shoe box or as large as a suitcase.

Don't have time to shop for groceries and household items? Try Amazon Prime Pantry to take advantage of an easy shopping experience.As you order items to place in your Amazon Prime Pantry box, everything is assigned a percentage. For example, while a 12-pack of soda weighs more than a six-pack of paper towels, they have the same percentage because the paper towels take up more space in the box. In addition to the amount of space each box offers, each box has a set weight limit.

It is not necessary to fill your Amazon Prime Pantry box completely to 100%. You can buy as little or as much as you like. But, I always try to fill the box completely since I have to pay the same shipping fee regardless of how big or small the box is. I feel like I get more bang for my buck that way.

My entire order with shipping included was $50.42 for 17 items. I was able to take advantage of some weekly deals in addition to some coupons. Per Amazon’s terms of service I can’t list the particular prices, but I feel the prices I paid were in line with what I would have paid at a grocery store. The difference being I didn’t have to drive to the store, pick out my items, pack them in my car, and then unpack them when I got home. It’s a much easier way to shop!

Will my Amazon Prime Pantry Order be Delivered in Two Days?

Due to the size and weight, Prime Pantry boxes are shipped via ground shipping. Orders may take between 1-4 business days to arrive. In my experience, two days does seem to be the standard, although it’s not guaranteed.

Please note: if you have other non-Pantry items in your shopping cart, they will not be shipped with your Amazon Prime Pantry order. Those items will be shipped in a different box.

I love the ease of shopping using Amazon Prime Pantry! I also love using Amazon’s Subscribe & Save feature for items I need on a continual basis. By using a combination of the two I can do most of my shopping from the comfort of my home in my pajamas! That’s they way I like to shop, y’all!

    I’m always amazed at what I can fit in the box for $6 shipping- I also love that I can take advantage of coupon savings. We find some great deals on Amazon Pantry.

    WoW! That was a lot of stuff for around $50.00. I am a Prime member, but I’ve never tried Amazon Prime Pantry. I’m planning on doing so a lot in the New Year, though!

    Amazon Prime Pantry sounds like a great service. I am a Prime member but the pantry is not available in Canada yet. Hopefully soon.

    I love Prime Pantry! I try to streamline as many tasks as I can and having all of my pasta, soups, etc just arrive magically is so helpful.

    I made a prime pantry order in December as usual with no trouble. But in mid-January 2018 – the percentages of the box had disappeared on every item and when I went to check out, they were charging $7.99 delivery instead of $5.99 so it wasn’t compensated by the $6 off for buying 5 items from the select list. The info on the site still says $5.99 delivery. Don’t know if it’s a glitch or a permanent baffling change. (Why eliminate the % info?!?) The items I chose were actually lighter and fewer than my last order so I doubt I overflowed the box. I’m too cheap to pay an extra $2 and besides, if it’s a glitch that could affect handling of my order.

    Forums were discontinued, couldn’t check there. No longer any way to e-mail to ask, had to go into the hated chat only to be told after wasting a lot of time that pantry only has phone support. I hate chat but hate phone support even more, so no. So I had no way to just report the problem.

    I waited a few days to see if there was any change for my cart, finally gave up and went to Walmart online. They had everything I had wanted to order from pantry at about the same prices, we will see if they destroy it all in bad packaging… I don’t trust Walmart with my credit card (two bad experiences a few years ago), but they now take PayPal.

    Does anybody know what is going on with prime pantry? Are they really charging $7.99 now and not telling us the % of box as we shop? Or is it actually a temporary glitch? Maybe next I should contact the CEO….

      Hi there. Sorry to hear you’re having trouble with Prime Pantry. I just checked mine and it’s showing percentages for me and my shipping is $5.99. I’m not sure why yours is acting up. I’d definitely be aggravated if mine was messing up. Have you tried reaching out to Amazon on social media?

    I’m having the same issue as Jwoolman- no % showing & it says shipping is $7.99 flat fee in the description now (not just at checkout).
    I say fughetaboutit!
