AmazonFresh: New West Seattle Blog sponsor – welcome!

Today we welcome one of our newest WSB sponsors, AmazonFresh, the new grocery home-delivery service from We offer new sponsors the chance to tell you about their business, and amazontruck.jpghere’s what AmazonFresh would like you to know: Since November 2007, 2,000 of your West Seattle neighbors have experienced the convenience of having all their perishable and non-perishable groceries delivered to their doorstep by AmazonFresh. Unlike other grocery delivery services, AmazonFresh was designed from scratch to take your busy life into account. Same day and next day delivery is standard. They can deliver before you wake up and you don’t need to be home to get delivery. If you want to be home (or your order contains alcohol), you can choose from dozens of 1-hour time slots. Delivery is available 7 days a week including Sundays. For doorstep deliveries, AmazonFresh leaves your groceries in secured, temperature-controlled totes. In addition to these convenience benefits, AmazonFresh has a great selection of local products including produce and dairy. You can even get many of your favorite books, video, baby, toy, and kitchen products delivered with your groceries. Need popcorn, movie, and popcorn maker for a Friday night? No problem. Last but not least, AmazonFresh has multiple ways to save including daily deals, bulk purchases, and automatic delivery discounts. Best of all, these discounts can be “nested” so that customers can take advantage of not 1 but 3 different discounts on the same item! By combining discounts, customers can save up to 70% on certain products. Give AmazonFresh a try today.

Thanks to AmazonFresh for sponsoring 24/7 independent, community-collaborative neighborhood news here on WSB – the full sponsor team is here, with info on how to become part of it! (Photo credit: JetCityOrange)

    Tried them for the first time this last week….Very impressive and great selections of what I ordered. And this ol’ Luddite said, “that’ll be the day I pay for someone to pick and deliver my groceries.” The website was super user friendly.So give them a try. Saving time and energy DOES have it’s advantages…..

    Congrats and welcome to Amazon and its ad dollars helping out WSB.
    If I had a product or service to advertise and the money to advertise it, I would join WSB as a sponsor.
    If I did not have the money to advertise, or I wanted to maximize my exposure, I would post a congratulations like this and sign with my business link.

    I love Amazon Fresh! I wish I lived within walking distance to a store, but I don’t. Their website is easy and there are many options for sorting including looking for local produce, etc. I haven’t had any problems with them and have been using them ever since they started delivering to West Seattle. I was hesitant to order produce, but all that I have ordered has been great. If you haven’t tried them, it’s worth it! Even if you end up having to pay the $5 delivery fee, it’s well worth the time it takes me to get to the store, gas, and any impulse buying that I would do!

    Bayou and I love it. We use it a lot- saves us time and in many cases, money.

    I use amazon fresh for almost all of my grocery shopping. i still go to the farmers markets and dink around, but it’s so nice to order my groceries at night and have them there in the morning. As a family of four that entertains A LOT, we easily get ‘Big Radish’ status, so our delivery fee is waived. Love that i don’t have to worry about bags and all that fun. Yahoo Amazon!

    Brings back the days! I love it. Welcome to West Seattle (blog!).

    We still have a magnet on our fridge. Along with a “Net Guy” logo from when the cable provider was TCI. And I wish I had some sort of souvenir. Call it “net nostalgia.” – TR

    I use to use Amazon Fresh all the time but then they raised the minimum purchase amount from ~$30 to ~$75 (for free shipping). Being a single guy I just can’t buy that much at once and not have stuff go to waste. So, back the Thriftway. Understandable though I guess, I am not their target shopper, families are I suppose.

    Still miss that midnight shopping though. I would sit on my couch and order stuff to have delivered by breakfast the next day. Pretty sweet.

    I didn’t know you could get both Amazon Fresh and orders sent to your house together. I think I will become a convert very soon! I love going to the grocery store and picking out my food, but I have used amazon fresh once before and was very happy with it. I think I’ll be ordering groceries from them next week- from the comfort of couch. Woo hoo!

    We love Amazon Fresh. At least half our groceries come from them these days in any given month. They are really nice too. I’m so glad they are growing into the West Seattle community. The cost I save on hard to find items more than makes up for a $5 delivery charge if I’m under $75 order.

  • WSMom September 14, 2009 (8:48 pm)

    Yay for Amazon Fresh! Great selection and wonderful quality. Their free-shipping amounts and shipping fees are way less than Safeway AND their totes are awesome.

    I’ll add my “hurrah!” I was concerned about the fresh produce, but I have been quite pleased so far–it’s not the Farmers’ Market, but it’s good.

    I do hope they manage to find a solution to cut down or eliminate all the bags, though; when I order from them, I use more plastic bags than in about 6 months of grocery store shopping, since I almost always have my cloth bags, and I re-use my produce bags many times.

    And if only they’d deliver from the local CSAs! Progress still to be made. But hurray, anyway!

Sorry, comment time is over.
