Amazon Rolls Out Free 1-Hour Grocery Pickup at All Whole Foods Stores
Amazon announced today the launch of free one-hour grocery pickup on orders of $35 or more from all Whole Foods Markets in the US. This is available to Amazon Prime members only. The new pickup option is in addition to Amazon Fresh, a free same-day grocery delivery service for orders of $35 or more that is available in many cities around the country.
Grocery delivery and pickup have become increasingly popular during the pandemic this year, as people attempt to social distance. Amazon says customers can access the pickup service via the Whole Foods tab in its app or website. At checkout, you select a one-hour pickup window, and then use the app to let the store know you’re on the way when the time comes. Amazon says most people will only wait one minute to receive their orders.
To try out the new pickup service, you would need to sign up for Prime. A Prime subscription costs $119 annually, or $12.99 per month.
