As of this week, Amazon has halted the Amazon Pantry service (also known as Prime Pantry), likely due to other popular options like Subscribe & Save as well as Amazon Fresh eliminating the need for it. The service allowed Amazon customers to place bulk orders of household essentials, specific to the size of the delivery box.

The service has undergone a couple revisions over the years. Back in 2014 when it originally launched, customers would pay a $6 shipping fee to send up to 4 cubic feet (or 45 pounds) of products to their home. Presumably, easier to send bottled water and other heavy items to your home rather than pick it up at the grocery store.

During 2018, Amazon altered how the service worked by offering a $5 monthly subscription fee. This let customers place an unlimited number of orders without paying additional fees. Of course, customers had to place orders at least $40 or more each time. That subscription fee was also on top of Amazon Prime’s year cost.

If you are an existing Prime Pantry customer, considering shifting over to Amazon’s subscribe and save model, which sends a monthly delivery of items to your home without having to schedule anything. We post the best deals on subscribe and save items here. Any product ordered under S&S can be cancelled at any time.
