Amazon Pantry is a feature of online shopping behemoth Amazon, where customers can order “everyday package sizes” of their favourite grocery items – like a single box of banana bread mix or two cans of soup, as well as household items like paper towels and trash bags.

Think of Amazon Pantry as a way to conveniently get all of your dry goods and cleaning supplies. For example, you can’t order a gallon of milk, but you can order condensed milk or boxed almond milk.

You don’t have to be an Amazon Prime member to use Amazon Pantry either, but Prime members do get free shipping –Amazon Pantry has a flat $US5.99 shipping fee for non-Prime members.

With Amazon Pantry, the more you order, the better the discount you get. When you order five items using Amazon Pantry, you get 5% off your order. Most orders arrive within four business days.

Finally, Amazon Pantry is only available in a few select regions, which, however, are not explicitly stated. You may have to wait until checkout to see if Amazon Pantry is available in your city. Pantry items cannot be sent to P.O. Box addresses, Amazon Lockers, or states outside of the “contiguous United States” (Hawaii and Alaska).
