I have to admit that technology mocks me at every turn. My dear friend Lisa Pietsch is fond of reminding me of this each time a device, app, or other electronic something is giving me fits.
But, every once in a while I run across something that makes me squee, and is so user friendly that I can get through it with no “help me” phone calls to Lisa. Enter the amazing Amazon Prime Now app. Yes, you can get it on your desktop, but I default to my phone.
Exclusively for Amazon Prime members, this delivery service offers 25,000+ items including household items, groceries, meals from your favorite restaurants, gifts and more…. Oh my.
If you are NOT an Amazon Prime member, here is a link to learn what it is, what you get, and how much it costs. I pay $99 + tax one time per year (around $107 or $8.92 per month) for my Prime membership. Free 2 day shipping on Amazon, Prime Music (my go to for all things music), Prime movies (just like Netflix), my Prime Now, and so much more….

This morning I had about 30 things that I needed from the grocery store, but just getting over a post-vacation cold I didn’t feel like leaving the house. Then I remembered my Prime Now app.
I took my list that I had put together and started searching each item out, and adding it to my cart. Five minutes later I reviewed my cart, hit check out, and selected my delivery time for today. Since Prime Now is attached to your Amazon account, they automatically bill your payment card on file, so it’s really just once click processing. Now delivery is free unless you want it in under an hour. I chose 2-4 hours from time of checking out and it was FREE. Add in a tip for the beautiful, amazing, life saving delivery person, and bam, I’m done.
Welcome screen to start your search
Checkout screen showing list of all items purchased.
Once the order is placed I get a tracking screen that tells me they are putting my order together, and when they are headed to me I will get another update showing the progress of the delivery vehicle. Talk about convenient. All I need to do is put some pants on LOL!

Is that the doorbell??? Yay! It’s here…. 1:04pm! Right in the middle of my 12noon-2pm window.
Don’t forget you get $10 off of your first order!
Also note, you can change the default 10% tip amount when you order, but they will not accept cash tips at the door.
Happy Sunday Lovies! Let me know if you have any questions.
