I wrote yesterday about an offer for $10 off your first order at Amazon Prime Now Restaurants. Prime Now has been available in Manhattan for a few month, but Gothamist reports they have also expanded to Brooklyn (not all of it) now, so more people in NYC will be able to take advantage of that offer and of the service in general. The Prime Now program delivers a number of different items within a one hour window.
The service is zip code-based, so not all restaurants are available to all areas. There are 130 restaurant currently participating, so Park Slopers can get food from spots including El Atoradero, Franny’s and Four & Twenty Blackbirds, while Williamsburg gets Saltie, Naked Dog and Roberta’s, among others.
The advantage of Amazon Now is that they won’t charge a delivery fee and prices for delivery will be exactly what you would pay if you left your home to eat at the restaurant itself. Amazon even promises to reimburse you the difference if you spot any markups in you prices.
You need an Amazon Prime account in order to use Prime Now. You can sign up for a Prime membership 30-day trial.
Keep in mind that restaurants spend more money to be hosted on sites like this. Amazon has reportedly charged restaurants 27.5% of the check, which is double what some other providers charge. But, Amazon told Recode this would “[take] the burden of delivery off a restaurant’s back.”
