Starting on February 1st, Amazon is increasing the minimum purchase amount required for Amazon Fresh deliveries for Prime members. This change will affect Prime members who use Amazon Fresh to purchase groceries, household essentials, and other items.
Previously, Prime members who used Amazon Fresh could place orders with a minimum purchase amount of $35. However, starting February 1st, the minimum purchase amount will be increased to $50. This change applies to deliveries in the United States and will not affect Prime members who use Amazon Fresh Pickup.
The increase in the minimum purchase amount is part of Amazon’s ongoing efforts to improve the efficiency of its grocery delivery service. By requiring customers to order more items, Amazon can reduce the number of deliveries and reduce costs, while still providing fast and convenient service to its customers.
It is important to note that the minimum purchase amount for Amazon Fresh is subject to change and may vary depending on location. Prime members who use Amazon Fresh should check the service’s website for the latest information on the minimum purchase amount for their area.
Overall, the increase in the minimum purchase amount for Amazon Fresh is a small change that should not have a significant impact on the majority of Prime members. However, for those who regularly place small orders, it may mean having to wait a little longer before making a delivery.
