If you're wondering how to get free shipping on Amazon pantry items… well you're not the only one!
Yesterday I was working up a weekly scenario of Amazon Prime Pantry items that qualify for the free shipping promo – and POOF! This long-running promotion has vanished! Which means shipping on a Prime Pantry box will once again cost $5.99 🙁
***There IS still a work-aroud to score nearly-free shipping on Amazon pantry items, scroll to the end of this post to read about that!
In place of the Free Shipping promotion – Amazon has a NEW Buy 5, Save $6 Promotion. (That's almost as good, since shipping would have cost $6.)
Just add 5 select items to your Prime Pantry box and $6 will come off automatically at checkout.
The selection of included items is pretty big! 🙂
Listed below are the items I ordered in my big Prime Pantry box yesterday. After the Buy 5 Save $6 discount, I'm getting (5) bags of Wickedly Prime Tortilla Chips for 99¢ each (WOW!) These will be perfect for nights when we have Slow Cooker Chicken Nachos! 😉
My Prime Pantry Box
Everything thing I ordered had a coupon I could clip (see the discounts in my cart in the image above).
For $37.06 I ended up with: FIVE Bags of Tortilla Chips, Gain Detergent 100 oz bottle, Charmin Mega Rolls 6pk (= to 24 rolls), Pantene Shampoo and Conditioner Dual Pack, Secret Deodorant 2-Pack, Colgate Toothbrush 4-Pk, and Herbal Essences Shampoo 33.8 oz Pump Size!
I compared every one of these items to Walmart prices and my total there was $47.47. (I subbed out Walmart brand tortilla chips for Prime brand)
A total savings of $10.41!!
How to Get Free Shipping on Amazon Pantry Orders
Another way to offset the shipping on Amazon pantry orders is to take advantage of No-Rush Shipping credits from other Amazon purchases.
Anytime you're checking out on Amazon and you have the option to choose No-Rush Shipping, you should take it! Your shipping time will be 5 business days instead of the typical 2-day shipping period. For your trouble, you will earn a reward or credit – and often you'll receive a $5 Credit toward a future Prime Pantry purchase, nearly cancelling out your shipping costs. 🙂
TIP: Keep track of any rewards or credits you've earned on this handy No Rush Rewards BalancePage!
