Amazon has worked consistently to make their Prime service a must for all consumers. They’ve added video services, shipping incentives and cost savings. Just today, Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) announced several more additions, which make the Prime service even more appealing. First and foremost, the company has teamed up with its first drugstore. Thanks to its partnership with Bartell Drugs, Amazon will be able to make one and two-hour deliveries to residents in Seattle, Washington.
The delivery service will be available in select areas, including Columbia City, Renton, Sammamish, Mercer Island, Capitol Hill, and University of Washington. The service will start today and is expected to expand sometime in the near future. At midnight on November the 21st, Prime member will receive ten dollars off of their first purchase from Bartell Drugs, when their order exceeds twenty dollars. Customers will need to use the following promotional code: BARTEL10.
Also, Amazon has launched their Prime Now restaurants service in Irvine, California. The city is the third to launch this month and the sixth in California at this time. The new service will allow Irvine residents to order food from more than fifty select restaurants. And of course, they’ll be able to enjoy free one-hour delivery. The following establishments have signed up to be a partner of Amazon Restaurants.
- Rockfire Grill
- Pick Up Stix
- Mick’s Karma Bar
- 3-Thirty-3 Waterfront
- Many more
Eligible users can take advantage of the service by utilizing the Prime Now app. Alternatively, Prime members can also place their orders through the PrimeNow.com website. After the consumer has finalized their order, Amazon’s partners will make sure the food is delivered in an hour or less. And to make the service even more attractive, Amazon Restaurants offers transparency in terms of pricing.
Users will have never to worry about paying hidden fees when their order is delivered. There are no menu markups and Prime members will not be required to pay any delivery fees whatsoever. If an item is available on the restaurant’s online menu for a cheaper price than what the customer paid in a 24 hour period, Amazon will offer a refund for the price of the item. The additions ultimately help to make Amazon’s Prime even more of a steal than it already is.
