Do any of you use it? Opinions? I'm looking into it, but am not sure if it's worthwhile. Seems as though I'd end up paying too much for shipping, or too much for the five "free shipping eligible" items that I wouldn't normally buy. Maybe there's a knack to it that I'm just not seeing. It would frankly be a relief though, to not have to deal with our local Walmart!

One specific question I can't find the answer to is do I have to have five eligible items per box, or is it per order?


I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. ~Phil 3:13-14~

I use Amazon Pantry, but am in no way really savy. I think that it's use largely depends on your shopping habits, what you buy and where you live.

When I was post-pregnancy, hauling the baby from the parking lot, across the stairs, all with a baby on my hip, Amazon Pantry was a life saver. I would order those bulky and heavy items (toilet paper for the month, same with washing detergents, etc) and have those sent. I had Fem. Products sent in bulk as well to make up for my five items...never ran low like I often did when relying on myself Embarassed . It was wonderful.

When my daughter had her first child, I gifted her a monthly diaper delivery using my Amazon Pantry...she had the same issues, but was in a three story walk up. Amazon started shipping USPS at that time (it was strictly UPS when I started) and they refused to deliver. They'd walk up the three flights of stairs to leave a sticky note that she would have to come, stand in line at the USPS office to pick up her diapers. At about that time, I quit using them for pretty much everything. On a rare occasion I will still pop something in for an order. My Fem Products are still delivered since they are willing to leave it on my stoop, but almost everything else is a big nothing - if I think of something in time, I'll add on if I know I'm stuck at home or too busy to pick an item up anyway, but will cancel my next subscription almost immediately.


Peace

I didn't even think of that! Confused We have a community mailbox and the PO won't deliver to the door.
